  1. The uptempo songs are full of life and happiness, the few slow songs have a subdued grace that is trademark Club 8, and when taken together, they add up to the band’s best record to date.
  2. The result is a warmly inviting album that's as sweet as it is cleverly composed.
  3. What’s striking about The People’s Record isn’t just how different it sounds. It’s how familiar it sounds while also sounding different.
  4. Though The People's Record contains some of the best music of Club 8's career, it doesn't hold up well as a complete album. There are no outright duds, but the sequence is front-loaded to such a degree that there is an obvious drop-off in quality by the middle of the set.
  5. Sometimes, the band forms something interesting and new from these starting points.
  6. Uncut
    Producer Jari Haapalainen successfully blends it all together, but Karolina Komstedt's vacant vocals remian glacially unmoved. [Jul 2010, p.104]
