  1. 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.
  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 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.
  4. 60
    Canning's default setting is a distorted, drone-laden, melodic indie rock that recalls My Bloody Valentine or Sonic Youth, but he also goes off on some interesting tangents. [Oct 2008, p.81]
  5. Canning's voice is not the strongest--indeed, it often stays buried deep down within the mix--but if you're a fan of Broken Social Scene, you'll know that it's atmosphere that's all important. Which is something that Something For All Of Us has in spades.
  6. Great sleepy Sunday-afternoon music, but it could have been more than that.
  7. 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]
