I have been following FFD for a few years now and been waiting for this to be released eagerly.

Boy was it worth the wait. Asked to describe it to friends I have had to say jazzy, souly and dubby, and each genre flows seamlessly and tightly.

If you like Based On A True Story you'll love this straight out of the box and it gets better with each play.

If you don't know FFD, then give them a go and if you get a chance, see them live. They have recreated the live feel on a studio album real well.

This is a fabulous album!

Lots of bands come out with fresh and creative debut albums; the fans and critics love them until their eagerly awaited second album comes out and just thoroughly disappoints. Luckily for us FFD fans, this is well and truly not the case here! 'Dr. Boondigga & the Big BW' seems, to me, to represent a whole new depth for the band.

Listening back to 'Based on a true story' after replaying and replaying 'Dr. B...' it is so apparent that they have been working really hard on these compositions. They've really honed in on that fusion of eclectic elements/genres that make up their original sound. Apart from anything else, FFD have really stepped up their production quality, too. Worldwide, they are renowned for their weighty 'dub' sound, with throbbing bass lines and reggae off-beat bass drum grooves. But there is something else about the 'depth' that seems to emanate from this album. FFD seem to have fallen into a deep, rhythmical stupor on many of these tracks- almost as if, when they were jamming the material for this album, their producer had to say to them, finally: "Guys, it's a wonderful groove, but you'll have to cut it down from 18 minutes to at least 8!".

I suppose, if there was one criticism I would make about this album it would be that some of the tracks seem to be extended longer than necessary. Track 6, "the Camel", for example, which features the warm harmonies of the guest vocalist, Alice Russell, seems to have an unnecessary 4 mins tagged onto the end. I actually bought this album on the strength of watching a YouTube video of this track but was really surprised when listening to the album that the song continues on for an extra 4 minutes after the YouTube-'radio edit'- finishes.

How can somebody give this 1 star?

Fat Freddy's Drop are simply awesome and this album is no exception.

Some of my favourites are Shiverman, Pull the Catch, The Raft & The Nod.

You must be tone deaf not to like some of these!

Can't wait to see them live again!

I loved Fat Freddy's Drop's first album "Based on a True Story". Every track on the album was great and I listened to the whole album many times.

Boondigga & The Big BW is a good album. FFD try some new music styles which sometimes work really well, I particularly like the electronica in Wild Wind. However, I don't think the first three tracks on the album are as consistently good as the rest of the album and overall the album is not as good as FFD's first album.

If you like FFD, then I recommend it. If you are unsure, then get their first album, and perhaps get this one if you like that.

I already had this on CD but thought it was worth trying on vinyl. It sounds great with the full richness that can be achieved with vinyl. I think it came with a cd too!

Man I'm sad that people said this was their weaker album. Not only is this my favourite Fat Freddy's album, but with them being my favourite artist, it's my favourite album of all time, full stop. Boondigga is my favourite song too, and I just love the variety this album has, trying out different things, and it's more upbeat than BOATS, which is right behind it. I recommend you listen to it and if you love it like I do you'll love it and if you hate it then you'll hate it. Nothing more I can say.

I am a great fan of FFD and Based on a True Story. Bought them, seen them, relaxed with them at home at played them to great rooms at parties. This album though is pretty lame compared to True Story. It has good bits, like The Camel and Shiverman, but has oh-so-boring R&B noodles like The Raft and Big BW. Why did you make them, Freddys? I almost regret buying it. Their live gigs, though, are where they're best. See you on the 30th.

I have their first, love it, and I like this as much or more. I've got four stand-out tracks but I dig the whole thing. Each listen gets better, and I've listened to it maybe a dozen or so times. I like the deceptively low-key, slightly trancey / housey funk aspects that slowly lift-off. I'm guessing this crew rocks the house live. I'd be confident in saying if you enjoyed the first album, you'll definitely enjoy this.
