  1. The latest in a series that's now produced two very good albums, Something For All Of Us... succeeds on many levels and is a testament to Brendan Canning as a solo songwriter and not just as a member of a very succesful band.
  2. Although it's loud in places, it doesn't sound as overstuffed as the past couple releases from the group, and that's a nice change.
  3. The music on Something for All of Us… is focused, melodic and utterly impressive. Not only does it sound terrific but it sounds like it was a complete pleasure to make.
  4. The second in command of the good ship Broken Social Scene, for quite some time he’s been in the shadows of the band’s co-founder Kevin Drew.
  5. Something... is sumptuously produced art-rock, heavily influenced by Sonic Youth and Dinosaur, Jr., but presented with a fresh-faced optimism. [Sep 2008, p.141
  6. Throughout, Canning aspires to the rousing anthems that have made Broken Social Scene one of the best acts of the last decade, but he falls short. He’s certainly not a lemon in the BSS product line; he’s just an underwhelming model. [Summer 2008]
  7. 60
    It's all tenderly delivered and definatly indie--both sonically and spiritually. [Oct 2008, p.113]
