Not as immediately accessible as Man Alive (possibly due to the number of singles heralding EE's arrival before their debut album arrived), but a steady grower with a range of emotion and dynamic musical shifts.

Everything Everything have built on their initial work here, and I suspect (and hope) that they have what it takes to keep us intrigued for the long-term. They are clearly not short of ideas, and their understanding of hooks, melodies, and pop song dynamics suggest a healthy future.

Ok so here's the deal. I'd never heard of them. So how did I come across their stuff? Truth be known, I was on the tube on Monday and was sat next to a couple of guys who where raving about the album Arc. I then saw the poster on a billboard and thought, I'll give it a listen on YouTube. I'm glad I did. Think Bloc Party with a slightly less edgy style. Layered and very straight forward indie music. Clever.

Glad I sat next to the 2 lads now!

Everything Everything are one of those bands you are always on the lookout to discover. On first listening you could be excused for feeling a little uncomfortable but play it again and you're very quickly making comments like 'oh that's clever', 'how do they do that?' etc. etc. I know very little about them having only just recently discovered them on Later with Jools but I bought 'Arc' on the strength of that appearance and I love it.

Loved almost every track on this album. So many shades, so much going on, catchy to boot! Liked less the Radiohead influence, but can hear so many (influences) it is a joy to listen to in the main. I swear there`s a bit of Gentle Giant in there, and the `new prog` take is evident. Manchester lads, without a trace of any old Mad. It most definitely floated my boat, which is quite elderly as boats go... Big thumbs up from moi.

Loved this album - heard them on Dermot Saturday radio 2 show and thought they sounded good and wasn't disappointed - some great tracks - big drum beats and that voice! I especially like Cough,cough, the first track, Duet, the 4th track and Radiant, but the whole album has something to offer, it's a unique sound with a bit of Coldplay in there somewhere only better - enjoy!

I had heard the tune 'Cough Coungh' once or twice before Christmas and could not get the CD as was not released until January, this was worth the wait - they are clearly a band that enjoys playing, writing performing their Art, unlike the man made tripe that is thrown together on reality TV shows as a money making exercise. Love this band

I was late buying their first effort ( £3 at HMV) but was prepared for this issue at release thanks to the excellent Math Rock of Cough, Cough and the sublime hook of Kemosabe. The album just gets better with listen after listen. One of a clutch of great releases along with Bastille Bad Blood and Foals 3rd release

For a debut album, it is brilliant. At first i thought the songs were a bit "out there" and maybe not my thing, they're not all like Cough Cough but i found myself humming tracks and singing lyrics of their other songs. (Now my favorite is Torso of the Week) Can't wait to see what they do next!!

Bought this on the strength of the Kemo Sabe single, which is just awesome. The rest of the album is good, certainly miles better than their first effort which was just trying to be clever without succeeding. Hints of Radiohead when they still wrote tunes. Goes on a bit too long.

I found EE's earlier stuff a little annoying and lacking much substance, but think they've reined the tendency to be wacky with their latest album. Arc is an inventive collection of songs that has more depth than earlier material. Thoroughly enjoying it.
