Transglobal Underground :: Yes Boss Food Corner
[ark21]   review from dimm  

If 'scrumptious' + 'rump' = 'rumptious'
then 'delicious' + 'funky' = 'funkalicious'

Dig dawg?
I've never heard TGU so funky-fresh as they are in this decent follow-up to Psychic Karaoke. I say 'decent' cuz it's quite different from their previous work, almost as if the band members were replaced. Surprise, some members did change, but that's always the case with TGU: they evolve and change with the years, just as music itself does. Unfortunately, Natacha Atlas does not return on this cd, but the core members of the team remain the same, with some new members adding their flavour to the stew. The influx of fresh perspectives has resulted in a newer, more r+b and funk-influenced album. But it's all good yo.

For fans of their earlier releases, Yes Boss Food Corner may take some getting used to, but it's worth the repeat listens in order for you to get some frickin culture.
