5.0 out of 5 stars TMBG Return
TMBG return with their classic sound of quirky lyrics and cracking tunes, but this time with the addition of some great drum loops courtesy of the Dust Brothers. As an added extra, this edition came with a full length bonus disk containing 23 tracks from the TMBG podcast making 36 tracks, great value.

Within 2 listens it will have infected your brain and...

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy if you are an obssessive TMBG fan, otherwise earlier CDs ar better
I have been a great TMBG fan since Flood and have almost all their CDs and some 12" vinyl. The Else is good but if you are new to TMBG then I would advise you to get Flood, Appollo or John Henry first. There is nothing new on The Else which they have not done before and better. Still, its a relief to hear it after their pointless excursion into children's music which...

Within 2 listens it will have infected your brain and you'll be humming the tunes all day. Soon you'll be singing all about Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbanipal, and Gilgamesh!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars An Honest Review, 30 July 2011

This review is from: The Else (Audio CD)
I'm a TMBG fan of many years (since 1990) and The Else doesn't do it for me. Out of the 13 tracks, I would say only 5 or so grab my attention.
Therefore I give this a 2 star rating If you're a fan of the band, get it to fill your collection, if you're not sure about TMBG, I'd give this one a miss and go for Flood, John Henry, Lincoln or Factory Showroom instead.

I have been a great TMBG fan since Flood and have almost all their CDs and some 12" vinyl. The Else is good but if you are new to TMBG then I would advise you to get Flood, Appollo or John Henry first. There is nothing new on The Else which they have not done before and better. Still, its a relief to hear it after their pointless excursion into children's music which was pretty dire in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars back to form, 28 Nov 2007

This review is from: The Else (Audio CD)
As a rabid TMBG fan since flood in 1990 I have been concerned at the noticable deterioration in quality as far as new product in recent years.
However I am pleased to report that Else is a return to form in a big way. the Mesopotamians in particular is everything the 2 Johns do best - superb melody and a lyric which makes you smile every time you hear it.
Go buy it - you wont regret it !!
