This review is from: Everyone Is Here [Digipak] (Audio CD)
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.
