4.0 out of 5 stars Solid new CD from Soulive, October 7, 2003
By 
daGUY (Westfield, NJ USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Turn It Out Remixed (Audio CD)
I pre-ordered this album so it arrived in my mailbox on the day of its release (October 7th). I've been listening to it all day and it's a decent album.
Take the original Turn It Out album, re-think all the tunes, throw in samples from the originals, add some bumping bass & turntables, overlay it all with a heavy hip-hop beat and sprinkle some rap on top. That's Turn It Out Remixed.
Fans of Next will appreciate this album, it's got a similar feel (although it takes Next's "concept" even farther). My personal favorite tracks are Doin' Something Remix (feat. Meshell Ndegeocello on electric bass - wicked!), Cash's Dream Remix, and Arruga De Agua Remix.
If you aren't familiar with Turn It Out, I recommend you listen to that first - the tunes on Turn It Out Remixed are cool, but you can appreciate it more when you know the originals.
Overall, it's a solid album. If you know Turn It Out and you like Next, definitely check this out. It's like a merge of the two.

5.0 out of 5 stars totally unexpected and good, December 6, 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Turn It Out Remixed (Audio CD)
I saw the band this morning on the CBS news show and dug it so I picked this up today. I was expecting to hear the tight grooves they were playing and instead was treated to a long-form hip hop jazz journey.
Took a second to get used to but damm cool, just ordered the live album from amazon, interested to hear the evolution.
Highly recommend remixed though.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Darn Good Album!!!, October 17, 2003

"ubiquity73" (Glendale, AZ United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Turn It Out Remixed (Audio CD)
If I could sum up this whole entire album, I would say that it's superb. I've never heard anything like this album. It's like they've took hip-hop and jazz to a whole different level.
Take Hip-Hop& Jazz throw in some Meshell N'degeocello seasoned with The Beatnuts a fresh can of Chali 2na& Akil (from Jurassic 5) glazed with some Wordsworth and you have yourself a dish of hip-hop soul. You get your $'s worth on this b/c it's good from start to finish, take track 2 "Tabasco Remix" as an example.
If you know good music, then this is the album for you.
Take my word, you won't be dissapointed...
