    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.

    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.
  3. Oct 4, 2012
    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.
  4. Oct 4, 2012
    The Intelligence is spread a little too thin throughout.
  5. Oct 4, 2012
    Overall, The Intelligence have made yet another solid record that hints at the classic one they're capable of making.
  6. Oct 4, 2012
    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.
