3 stars Very similar ground treaded here following up "Efflorescence", with a slightly more straightforward delivery-- especially in the first set of songs which feature strong melodies and approachable hooks which get very heavy very quickly, but still feature the band's dynamic excellence throughout. More somber moments follow, with "Music For a Nurse" sounding VERY similar to Explosions in the Sky. The plodding "You Can't Keep a Bad Man Down" does little for me though, and is always skipped to the much more interesting finale.

Musicianship and production are on par with their debut, and I would say that "Everyone Into Position" is at least as good as that album, but the songs don't strike me as being quite as creative; but after enjoying most of them again I would recommend this one just as much as "Effloresce" to a new comer who is more than likely to be hooked by Oceansize's unique sound.

Songwriting: 4 Instrumental Performances: 3 Lyrics/Vocals: 3 Style/Emotion/Replay: 3
