Generally favorable reviews - based on 7 Critics

Critic score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 7
  2. Negative: 0 out of 7
  1. A mixture of optimism and realism is present throughout Everybody, and Michaelson's insights occasionally sting with honesty.
  2. Rarely does an independent album sound so assured, so polished, and so agreeable.
  3. On her latest, Everybody, the lyrics can be mildly quirky or annoyingly precious--and sometimes both.
  4. 60
    Her music mostly comprises ordinary, though precisely crafted, acoustic arrangements and plaintive-lite laments regarding absent lover. [Dec 2009, p. 92]
  5. 60
    Her career path - Staten Island barista to MySpace to Old Navy commercial-is less conventional than her songs, which build from folkie beginnings to big, optimistic pop choruses. [Dec 2009, p. 103]
  6. Everybody is a sweet-voiced cross between Colbie Caillat and Lisa Loeb's fourth LP and, even without the stately strings on the genuinely affecting Sort Of, it would be her most accomplished yet. [Dec 2009, p. 119]
  7. While she seems like the twee offspring of Lisa Loeb, she lacks any of Loeb’s quirkiness and charms while retaining the annoying preciousness. Michaelson’s fourth disc, Everybody, puts all her limitations on display.
