  1. Everything Everything's debut LP, Man Alive, is proof that enthusiastic experimentation can't save your end product when the underlying elements are so incompatible and unappetizing.

    An original, experimental debut album from Everything Everything rivals the likes of Coldplay and Radiohead in terms of quality and structure. It tries something completely different every 16 bars and yet isn't exhausting to listen too. A very solid album from start to finish. Full Review »

    At times it sounds like a combination of Radiohead, The Police, the Futureheads, and Coldplay. I think that's a good thing, personally. I don't really care for the first 3 songs on the album, which feel throwaway (esp. "My Kz, Ur Bf"), but after that, it picks up and gets really sonically interesting. Clearly not for everyone. If you don't like playfulness and experimentation, it may well turn you off. Full Review »
