In Finn Form.
on 24 August 2004
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.
