We've all come to love TransGlobalUndergrouned for their revolutionary fusion of worldly tunes and this is no exception. This c.d. is more ambient than Psychic Karaoke but it does'nt all come together as good as on 100 Nations or International Times. Nevertheless, there's some quality tracks on hear and the more I listen to it, the more I like it. Watch out for track 2, its a classic. At the end of the day, if you like T.G.U. you like this one.

If you are a TGU fan, i strongly recommend this, their most recent album. however, for me it does not quite live up to the earlier stuff, particularly its predecessor "psychic karaoke" and the excellent debut "dream of 100 nations". the asian and african influences are plain to see. particular highlights include "sky giant" with its big stomach-resonating choruses, and "delta disco", with brilliant harmony and sampling.

All reviews are very personal things, one man's meat is another's poison - this disc is a ten course meal, where every mouthful compliments the previous....
This is a great disc, period.
Don't forget - if you don't like it, you can use any of the million outlets to sell it on.
But if you sell your copy of "Rejoice Rejoice" you need your bumps feeling!
BUY IT - you wont be disappointed

Yes Boss Food Corner is the title of the bands follow up to Rejoice Rejoice. Maybe this one should have been called "Yes Boss! Rejoice Rejoice!" because TGU did it big style with this one. For me, TGU are incomplete without Natacha Atlas, as beautifully demonstrated in Rejoice Rejoice. Every track gets that glastonbury - shuffle - head - nod going without fail. Natacha's voice brings extra soul to an already spiritual album of well - fused western / world music. She and TGU lead the field in what they do and its difficult to find anything on a parallel. Four albums upto this point and not a bummmer among them ... sadly, I personally cannot say the same about the fifth. Buy TGU!
