We currently know 11 reviews for "Everybody Works" by Jay Som. The album received pretty solid reviews among the critics and is one of the better ones this year.
"Just a few years into her adult life, and only one album into her recording career, Melina Duterte has swept past a milestone many musicians never even get in their sights."
"With such a huge repertoire crammed into a record not much longer than 30 minutes, it’s all the more impressive that the tracks mesh together so seamlessly, never losing the cosy, affectionate motif that hangs over its entire runtime."
"Everybody Works has swept up the floors and straightened up the shelves. All the good stuff stays, but the lines are cleaner."
"Where Turn Into’s multilayered arrangements sometimes felt scrunched, Everybody Works blossoms."
"The separate successes of ‘Turn Into’ and ‘Everybody Works’ cement that Jay Som is absolutely a name to know, and this LP in particular proves that in addition to consistent, honest, attention-worthy output she’s also willing to poke around the margins of her comfort zone."
"Everybody Works suffers when it loses this eloquence. ... But the stunning closer, "For Light," more than redeems any shortcomings, pairing weary lyrics with mournful acoustic guitar and cementing Duterte's talents both as a songwriter and a producer."
"Everybody Works displays huge breadth, which is often disguised by a relaxed pace and its effortless segues between styles."
"Everybody Works feels like a good jumping-off point, Duterte potentially able to take the project anywhere she wants."
"Everybody Works is a record about small, personal moments, like riding the bus or balancing work and art--as the title track expertly does--and that’s what makes it all cohere. It’s simply effective. In other words: It works."
The A.V. Club
"On Everybody Works, Duterte’s timid, but not terrified. Like any sophomore album, it constitutes a bit of a departure, but at this juncture, she has every right to experiment."
Consequence of Sound
"It’s an impressive start to what seems to be a promising career for Jay Som, an artist ready for the next step to build atop this remarkable and often striking self-constructed first release."
