  1. While Everyone Is Here lacks the brightness of much of Woodface, it's the Finn Brothers' strongest collection of songs since that masterpiece, and arguably their most emotionally resonant album to date.
  2. Fans of Travis and Coldplay will certainly find much to treasure in the soaring harmonies, soft strings and heartfelt sentiments.
  3. A collection of perfectly polished songs, beneath whose placid surfaces lurk all manner of questions, doubts and insights.
  4. As an album, it probably won't spawn any MTV-hogging video classics--certainly, that was never the intention--but Finn fans in search of a mellow listen should find Everyone Is Here hits all the right buttons.
  5. 70
    Despite the air of contemplation, there's plenty of energy. [Sep 2004, p.98]
  6. Everyone Is Here bounces from one impeccably tuneful pop song to another.
  7. Stultifying moroseness and a constant furrowing of the brow permeate from start to finish. [21 Aug 2004, p.49]
