Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Ever since the demise of New Zealand popsmiths Crowded House back in the late 90s, brothers Neil and Tim Finn have been content to plough their furrow far from pop's bustling farmstead. Everyone Is Here, the pair's second full-lengther, lacks the full production and grand, Beatlesesque melodic ambitions that saw songs like "Weather With You" and "Fall At Your Feet" become transatlantic radio hits - but it replaces such scope with a smudged, intimate acoustic style that suits Neil and Tim's songwriting talents almost as neatly. The album's finest moments are mostly placed towards the top end: "Luckiest Man Alive" is the sort of conscious rock gospel that Stereophonics' Kelly Jones would kill to be able to write, while "Anything Can Happen" – a billowing, U2-style epic of scintillating guitar and cavernous drum-crashes is seemingly placed to prove that not all is trad chez Finn. 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. --Louis Pattison

BBC Review

Probably best if I declare a vested interest at the outset... I've been a diehard fan of pretty much everything Tim and Neil Finn have been involved in since just before Crowded House's 1991 Woodface album turned them into Europe's most popular New Zealanders.

The brothers' first major songwriting collaboration on Woodface yielded an album full of gorgeous hooks and harmonies, that got better with every listen. And it had the added bonus of introducing me to the future Mrs. Mendoza (about 5 rows back at the Town and Country Club on November 9th 1991, fact fans).

From then on Mrs. M and I eagerly awaited each new Finn-related release, and lapped them all up ... It's only now that I've spent several weeks listening to Neil and Tim's first proper collaboration for 8 years that I realise that all those other albums since Woodface have left me at least a little bit disappointed.

Everyone is Here is not only the album many fans have wanted the Finns to make for the last 13 years ... it's also the best classic pop album you'll hear all year. I don't suppose that McFly or Busted will be losing any sleep about the Finns' singles chart prospects, but almost any of these songs could have been the lead single.

"Nothing Wrong with You" and "Edible Flowers" both start out downbeat and introspective and then seamlessly segue into almost euphoric choruses. "Homesick" and "Part of Me, Part Of You" are natural heirs to Woodface's "It's Only Natural."

Lyrically this album is more about family than anything they've written before; "Disembodied Voices" and "A Life Between Us" examine the brothers' own relationship as it is now and was 40 years ago.

Those of us who were lucky enough to be at the fan-club gig in Regents Park earlier this month saw that live as well as on record, these songs can stand proud next to 30 years of Finn classics. If only all crafted pop was this intelligent, this catchy, and just this good. --Miles Mendoza

It's been a long wait. Nine years since their last collaboration - the low-fi, self-titled Finn album - Neil and Tim are back. And on top form.
Okay, 'Everyone is Here' is no 'Woodface', but that doesn't mean this album is any less than brilliant. Kicking off with the beatifully bitter-sweet 'Won't give in' the Brothers Finn don't disappoint, providing a collection of twelve cleverly-crafted songs, full of killer hooks, heartfelt harmonies and lyrics.
The album is wonderfully Beatle-esqe in places - 'All God's Children' being pure late-sixties Fab Four, so much so i could almost hear Lennon and McCartney in there amongst the fuzzy guitar.
From the haunting 'Edible Flowers' to the surprising 'Gentle Hum' one of my highligts has to be the instantly catchy 'Disembodied Voices' a tale of two kid brothers chatting in the dark, from their beds.
This album is a must for any Neil and Tim fans, an album, which, like most of the brothers work will gently unfold and flower inside your head with each listen. A companion for life.

Well, what can I say. The boys have done it again! After their last venture into duo-ism which was a little too experimental for my liking, they have produced an album that almost lives up to the classic CH album that was Woodface. There are even elements of this album that go hand in hand with the tracks from the classic album so much that you might even think they just kept a couple of the tracks back from that recording session just to put in Everyone is here.
Songwriting & Harmonies haven't sounded as good as this since Macca & Lennon.
It just has everything - Highs, Lows and bits that can only be the Finn brothers.
If you like music that is..., well, just music, (the way it should be) you have to own a copy of this album.
Thanks Chaps - you've made my iPod get goosebumps again!

The wait is over!!!
Anyone who has a feeling for music MUST listen to this CD. Very rarely does a CD of this calibre come along - but with all Finn CD's it takes time to get under your skin and do its work. Songs which at the beginning you do not like that much are the ones that you find yourself humming later that day! Give it time and the songs will work their magic and you will have made yourself a new friend.

Tracing the brothers' progress since Woodface, more than a decade ago, has been in parts rewarding and frustrating. You've got Neil's lyricism, his ear for a melody and the emotional experimentalism that has taken us from 'Into temptation' to 'Wherever you are' and you contrast this with Tim's showmanship, his rock and roll energy and raw passion, most evident on 'Feeding the Gods', shamefully ignored in the UK. Putting these two extremes together, as often as not, results in a compromise that falls short of what the two are capable of achieving separately, at least to these ears. However, that's not to say that this album doesn't contain some of their best work together.
'Won't give in' is reminiscent of 'Fall at Your Feet' - but is a real grower, and this introduces four, initially similar, but ultimately rewarding bigger production pieces. 'Nothing wrong with you' would be a good candidate for next single, with its strings, rousing chorus and slightly low-fi feel in the verses. 'Anything can happen' is energetic and tuneful, but passes you by quickly. Elsewhere there are interesting moments, such as the vertiginous feel of 'A life between us' which takes a Thom Yorke-inpsired direction and the genuine warmth of 'Disembodied Voices'. The high points are 'Edible Flowers', which the brothers aired live in 2001, with its stark musings on death and queasy strings and the last track 'Gentle Hum'. Music provokes different reactions in different people and I find myself in complete disagreement with the previous review. This is, for me, the best piece of music the brothers have ever produced, individually or together. A pump organ introduces a strident piano-led melody that falls into a beautiful chorus.

Career best writing from the most talented songwriters of the last 20 years. Uplifting melodies, moving lyrics, a perfect combination to produce the album of the year. As with Together Alone and most of the Finn solo work this gets better with each listen, but in this case it also demonstrates its quality on the first hearing. You wait for a bad track but it never arrives. No comparisons required to the Beatles, this is great work in its own right. I must be a sad old man being passed by life!

The beauty of this album is in its subtlety. Rather similar to the first 'Finn Brothers' album they take their music into directions which neither Crowded House or Split Enz could go, looking for a more reflective mature sound, relying on their excellent craftmanship to create lyrics and 'hooks' which are synonimus with the 'Finn' sound.
The harmonies sound as beautiful as ever, and the first single 'Won't give in' amounts to the most beautifully crafted song since Neil wrote 'Private Universe' all those years ago. It seems this song sums up the 'Finn' sound which remains as vigorous as ever, polished with the time and experience of a largely underrated singer-songwriter.
The songwriting produced within this album by Neil and Tim outlines the tremendous energy and connection that they have when they perform together. Breathtaking harmonies, awesome hooks that make you want to smile all day, and most of all satisfaction that music can be so beautiful and thought-provoking.
'Nothing Wrong With You', 'Edible Flowers' and 'Gentle Hum' provide the best tracks to this wonderful album. It may not sell the most records this year, but will certainly be one of the most critically acclaimed albums on offer. As well as buying this album, make sure you see them live this year on their UK tour. They will surely provide unforgettable nights.
