Ever heard a bad album by TGU? If you know the band then you also know what you are in for and can buy this CD in the blind. No big surprises here, but a continuation on the road they once set out on. As usual pure quality and The Stone Turntable is a logical successor to Moonshout, because quite in the same vein. If you don't know the band than this album is as good as any for trying: expect an eclectic mix of hip- and trip-hop, rap, bhangra, polka, beats, dance, you name it... African, Indian, Eastern European, it's all there. Sounds messy? Well, after eight albums and 18 years of playing this band surely knows how to mix it into their own, cohesive and always uplifting sound. These are the pioneers of ethno-dance and have no equals. If ever you feel gloomy, TGU gets you out of it.
