The Finn Brothers -- Everyone Is Here

Jumping forward a few decades to this year for Everyone Is Here by the Finn Brothers. You might have encountered these siblings (Neil and Tim) in either Crowded House or Split Enz (or their solo work). The new album's pretty high-quality pop, but it's a little overbearing at time, as on "Nothing's Wrong With You." The brothers' voice are still in good form, and the harmonies on this album are its greatest strength. When the music drives, I enjoy it; the slower numbers kill Everyone Is Here, with "Edible Flowers" being a disaster of a ballad. All in all, it's a solid, enjoyable album, but it doesn't really go anywhere. You could throw this disc on at any time and be fine with it, which is both a good thing and a bad thing.
