There are some truly great tracks on this album with a couple of mediocre offerings to make up the numbers. This is probably not their finest hour, but their talent shines through, making for an enjoyable listen. The highlight for me, and it truly is a masterpiece, is the track called Cruisin'. It's not in the same vein as "Green Onions" etc, but it's a tight, upbeat and grin inducing tune... a fabulous cherry on top of a really great cake. They don't make bands like Booker T and the MGs any more, but we get to listen to their talent and we're all the better for it. Just buy it.

Booker T & the MGs - That's the Way it should be, and it certainly is. Some reviews said it was not their best but I thoughily enjoyed it.
But there again, I always have been a Booker T / MGs fan.

HASH(0x935b07b0) out of 5 stars Not a bad track here! 27 Mar. 2001
By Dick K - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There may not be any Top40 hits on this CD but there isn't a track here that isn't worth repeated listening. If you've like them before then forget reading any further, just buy it and enjoy!
This CDs showcases an older, more sophisticated Booker T. & the MGs -- a polished, relaxed and confident sound. The track mix is excellent from the quiet jazzy sound of "Let's Wait Awhile" to the Hammond-organ-driven funk of "Mo' Greens" and the title track. There's even a bit of musical humor here--if you're old enough to catch the reference to Clyde the camel in "Camel Ride".
In short, this is a terrific set of music and well deserves a spot in your collection.
HASH(0x935b0804) out of 5 stars The Music Is Alive! 29 Aug. 2013

I had this CD when it first came out. It must have gotten misplaced or left behind when I moved. I found it here on Amazon and ordered it. Every song is a masterpiece. As far as the sender, The CD arrived earlier than I expected. The condition was exelent! I recomend looking up this seller before buying anything. Amazon, you're #1.

HASH(0x93939d2c) out of 5 stars The MG's return! A mixed set. 6 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Released in 1994, "That's the Way It Should Be" marked the MG's first record together since 1977's very disappointing (and somewhat disco-ish) "Universal Language." "That's the Way" marked the MG's return to the formula that made albums like "Soul Limbo" and "Hip Hug-Her" so great. Unfortunately, the songs here (both covers and originals) don't quite measure up to the standard of the songs on those great early-period albums (although "Sarasota Sunset" comes very close). Another problem is the sonic studio sheen that drains the energy from the songs. I saw the MG's playing these tunes live in 1994 and they sounded much more forceful--a live set of these tunes would have been much better.

HASH(0x935b0a5c) out of 5 stars Hammond B-3 soul-funk at it's best! 13 Nov. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The absolute best Booker T. album! Every cut just has you waiting for B. T.'s Hammond B-3 to shine. His band mates complement very well, especially Steve Cropper's guitar. "I Can't Stand The Rain" is a standout. When I need a lift I put this CD on.
