Sometimes first albums can make a band and break them at the same time. Take the Spin Doctors for instance. Their 1991 album Pocket Full of Kryptonite was a masterpiece. Funky riffs, wild lyrics, and a jam band feel, it took the world by storm and sold more than 5 million copies. Good news for the Doctors because this gives them the go ahead to put out another cd. But bad news for the band if you want to grow and move forward.
Turn it Upside Down is a solid effort from the Spin Doctors, and in some ways even surpasses the first. But it didn't matter to most people. The band sold over a million albums, but the decline was in effect.
And that frankly sucks. Because this is a stellar album. Funkier then the original it worked more on vibes than radio friendly material. The biggest single was You Let Your Heart Go Too Fast. And while that's a great tune, there are so many more on the record. Big Fat Funky Booty, Cleopatra' Cat, All This Will Be Road....all amazing songs.
So should you get the cd? Yes if you are a Spin Doctor's fan and want to see their natural progression as a band. But if you expect to hear the same exact music as Pocket, then don't bother. Me? I love this album and wish they would make another soon.

"turn it upside down is probably the most overlooked doctors cd. i dont see how people could review this cd negatively. this is one of my favorite cd's hands down. i dont rate cd's on commercial success and how good their singles are because those are the only songs people take notice too. this cd is amazing. its a very optimistic album and i love everything about it. im not going to go on about my favorite songs because thats a personal opinion and really doesnt make much sense for me to try and influence your opinion for the cd. you should take a listen and form your own opinion. this is one of those cd's that grows on you more and more each time you listen to it. take a listen and youll be hooked."
