    Everybody's Got It Easy But Me answers Finberg's ever-withering worldview with playful, rambunctious performances, enhancing the I-just-wasn't-made-for-these-times pathos of his lyrics by essentially making him sound like an outcast within his own songs.

    While the Intelligence may not sound quite as inspired here as they did on that album [2007's Deuteronomy], Everybody's Got It Easy But Me is still plenty of fun.

    Although Everybody's Got It Easy But Me is notably less frenzied and raw than the band's past decade of output, The Intelligence has not lost their edge, despite some of the slower, acoustic-based numbers.

    The Intelligence is spread a little too thin throughout.

    Established fans will appreciate a few new gems in the catalogue (I've returned repeatedly to "(They Found Me On the Back Of) The Galaxy"), but those unfamiliar with The Intelligence would do well starting with Deuteronomy, Fake Surfers or Males before circling back to this one.

    Overall, The Intelligence have made yet another solid record that hints at the classic one they're capable of making.
