5.0 out of 5 stars Give it time to grow 9 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A few years ago I gave this a relatively lowly rating of 2 stars as it didn't have the immediate impact of previous efforts and was also a bit of a change in style. I blamed this on a change in the line up. After several more listens it gradually grew on me and now it stands up alongside the best of their other albums. Here there's been a shift away from the more epic style of Psychic Karaoke and the more East European flavour of Rejoice Rejoice towards a more stripped down, hip hop / breakbeat vibe and more of a dancefloor sensibility. It's hard to recommend this as there's not much out that's comparable other than other leftfield world fusion outfits like Loop Guru. Because of the greater use of real instruments it does have a more earthy feel than say the more pure trancey and ambient electronica of Banco da Gaia.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Cover..Bad Sounds 24 April 2001
Format:Audio CD
...this cd was one of the biggest dissapointments of my music buying life. It is formulaic funk jam music with none of the Transglobal Underground magic that usually permeates their work...almost as if it was a poor cover band trying to be TGU...the sound of a band treading water. Every album prior to this I would have happily given 4-5 stars but this barely warrants the one. Although Natacha Atlas isn't the sole reason Tansglobal Underground have been so great in the past her presence/influence is sorely missed here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slight change of direction. No problem! 18 April 2001
Format:Audio CD
No Transglobal Underground fan will be disappointed with this album. It might not be the best introduction to their classic sound for a newcomer, but it's a wonderful departure from the previous Arabic bias and it works perfectly. It even includes a PROPER SONG in 'Step Across The Edge', with Tim Wheelan singing in a slightly Sting/Steve Winwood style.
TGU seem to have cleared the decks with the fabulous 1999 compilation 'Backpacking On The Graves Of Our Ancestors', and have effectively replaced the irreplacable Natasha Atlas with marvellous sitar player Sheema Mukherjee.
Totally classic tracks are 'Woodward Avenue', 'Step Across The Edge', 'London Zulu'... in fact, the whole second half of the album - especially 'Woodward Avenue' and 'One Of Our Dholaks Is Missing' which are perfect TGU.
'One Of Our Dholaks...' seems to be a live recording but I can't find any reference to it on the sleevenotes. Might be with the Dhal Foundation on the Page and Plant tour as there's big drums and a big crowd.
'Woodward Avenue' is a surreal, and very funny, story, told by the mighty Coleridge. It's (apparently) about emerging from the Tube into a London street full of wild characters, including the lady who knocks on the door and says... something completely unintelligible in a mysterious African language!
Typically zany, varied and musically entrancing. Long live the Transglobal Underground.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different...awesome... 27 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
TGU have been my favourite band since Dream Of 100 Nations came out. When I first heard this album I wasn't quite sure about it - there are some utter masterpieces on here, but it didn't sound quite like all my other TGU albums.
Then I went to see them live, and they played most of Yes Boss Food Corner as well as some older tracks. The whole album now makes perfect sense, and just because it relies more on ethnic instruments than a pounding bass beat doesn't make it a bad album. If you like world music with a western slant and emotion so deep you could swim in it, you'll love this. If you simply like maxing out the subwoofers in your Fiesta XR2, this is absolutely wasted on you.
Spiritual, emotional, magical and original... absolutely awesome...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Underground Funk 15 May 2001
By Ancient Fuzz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'm consistently amazed that people rate a band poorly when an album doesn't sound like what they expect it to. None of the reviews posted thus far clearly state how TGU have worked around the absence of Natacha Atlas (sigh -- I do miss her voice on this CD, but there are other pleasures here). The use of sitar is alluring, and the percussion is really first-rate. Vocals -- rather than the Arabic flair we're used to -- have a more African influence shining through. And I love that; I was never under the impression that TGU were supposed to be locked into a particular 'sound' at all, but they were to draw freely around the world. The production on this CD is incredible; the sound is just booming. TGU are still killer to dance to, and I found this to be a worthy addition to their already legendary influence on worldbeat/ethnotrance/ -- ah, screw the labels, you know what I mean.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes People Make Mistakes. 24 April 2001
By Edward Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Why I gave this album only 4 stars when I first reviewed it I will never know. Not only do I now feel this is TGUs most solid release to date, I find it more moving and beautiful. Engrained deep within the haze of funk laiden sitar and world influenced dance is an incredibly sophisticated sound which takes time to extract. Don't expect to get the same thing out of the previous albums, this one stands on its own.

5.0 out of 5 stars TGU Still Boss! 2 Aug 2001
By "hardip" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I can't believe some of the other reviewers here are talking about the same album as me! I always assumed that fans of their music would be musically open minded, but here we have a load of people expecting to hear what came before.
It's a progression, but still sounds recognisably TransGlobal. There's a slightly stronger bhangra influence on some tracks (due to new member Gurjit Sihra?), and some lovely African vocals from Doreen Thobekile Webster, but largely it remains the usual dubby world dance explorations you love 'em for!
I think people overestimate the contribution of The Singer That Shall Not Be Named. She actually only appeared on a handful of tracks on each of the 4 previous "proper" TGU albums. Go and buy her album too if that's what you want!
This release maintains the invention, wit and joy associated with all TGU line ups of the last 10 years. Buy it and listen with an open mind.

4.0 out of 5 stars World grooves and raves 30 Dec 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Honestly, the only way I can describe their sound is like a mix of the Canadian rapper Snow, the 70's funk outfit Kool and the Gang, and current rap-soul sweethearts The Black Eyed Peas. Whew!
It gets 4 stars 'cause only 8 songs of 10 are good. The silly love song "Spellbound" is soooo dated. Best cut is the raver "One of Our Dholaks Is Missing."
