While each song has its own charm, the album as a whole may be too uniformly sunny for its own good; it's catchy, it's interesting, but it falls just short of memorable. "Don't Look back On Your Own," begins with Joey Ryan crooning promisingly over a few soft strums of the guitar, then transitions into an upbeat song that sets the tone for the rest of the album. Well Here We Are Then reaches its high point with "Spitting in Tune," a song whose innocent, airy melody lends it an inviting sound that seems to bring together the most prominent elements of the album in a cohesive way. While Joey Ryan and the Inks demonstrate high potential through Well, here We Are Then, it lacks a certain depth and diversity of sound that in time they may well be capable of developing.
Best tracks: "Oh, Caroline," "Spitting in Tune," "You Are All Friends of Mine"
