You've got to give them credit. Each time the SD's make a new album, they go for some different, not just a rehash of the previous album. With the other albums, the results have been great, but on this one, they are mixed. The first three songs are outstanding. Big Fat Funky Booty lives up to it's name and is hard to sit still to, You Let Your Heart Go Too Fast is a great driving rock song, and Cleopatra's Cat makes you want to snap your fingers and tap your feet. But then, something goes wrong. Not BAD wrong, I mean. It's still good stuff overall, and better than most bands will ever produce. But when you compare the rest of the album to the first 3 songs and their other albums, something is, well......lacking.
For the most part, the energy of their other work is just not there. Also, the singing leaves a bit to be desired on a couple of tracks like Mary Jane and At This Hour. Chris Barron is a talented singer with a unique voice, and I've been a fan of his for a long time, and I KNOW he can do better than that. And then there is Biscuit Head. I'm sorry, but the lyrics on this song are goofy and mindless, which is a damn shame, since the music is pretty cool. The Doctors do some goofy songs now and then, but their usually goofy in a fun and cool sort of way (example: Gorrilla Boy, Yo Mama's a Pajama), not like this.
Fortunately, there are some other bright spots besides the first three tracks. Indifference and Laraby's Gang has a nice, laid back appeal to them, but with good momentum so they're not boring. Hungry Hamed's is a cool, funky song that may well remind you of some restaurants you've been in.
Overall, the title of the review pretty much sums it up.

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.

I voted for this album as the top album of the decade in a Rolling Stone poll. I bought it when I was 13 and my taste in music was evolving. I had to listen to it a couple times for it to grow on me and then the more I listened the more I liked it. I cant give you a technical, intelligent-sounding, mumbo jumbo review, but what I can do is tell you this is some good music. You Let Your Heart go too fast(the 2nd song on the album) is one of the best songs I have ever heard. Chris Barron is truly the greatest singer in rock music, his voice expresses such joy and optimism. Get this album, listen to it and you will thank yourself for doing so.

Pocket Full of Kryptonite was a very, very solid release. But when a band has years to write their first album, then the expectation to create an incredible followup in a short time, most bands disappoint. They can overcome this by changing styles.
For the most part, the Spin Doctors delved into their library of chestnuts for this album. There were a few newer songs, and some that didn't translate as well into live settings.
Chris Barron has much more creative control over this album than he had on PFoK. This is evidenced by the less jam-centric nature of some of the songs.

This isn't a bad thing - Chris Barron has a lot of good songs in him.

Big Fat Funky Booty opens the album, and it's an excellent choice. It was a solid crowd-pleaser for years before release.
You Let Your Heart Go Too Fast is an interesting track. While it's well written, both Mark and Eric sound a little more out of their element.
Cleopatra's Cat was one of the strangest missteps, and I'd blame it on the relative failure of this album commercially. The song doesn't grab the listener instantly, unless they were already paying attention. However, the track is incredibly interesting... if you turn the volume up. Listening to this track loud - or on headphones - is what they were hearing when they decided to release it as a single. Mark's bass is very cool.
Hungry Hamed's is classic. This was also a popular live track. Eric's guitar work is spectacular, especially the scraping noises during the main riff as the chords are about to ascend at the end of the phrase. Mark's bass is as funky as ever.
Biscuit Head is a lot of fun, and that's probably the way that they approached the song.

After hitting paydirt with their full length debut, Pocket Full of Kryptonite, the Spin Doctors released a half-hearted followup with Turn It Upside Down. While that album spawned two of the best singles of the `90s in "Two Princes" and "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" and was a near non-stop party, this album is more reflective and rarely catches fire. The best track is "You Let Your Heart Go Fast", an irresistibly catchy number that has become forgotten over the years. Many reviewers have been critical of the band's choice of "Cleopatra's Cat" as the first single and I agree completely. It is a decent tune with its laidback feel and Chris Barron's scat vocals but has no hook to bring the listener in. There are some other good tunes here in "Indifference" and "Hungry Hamed's" but they don't have the energy of anything on their debut. "Big Fat Funky Booty" is an okay opener but feels like a second rate version of the excellent "What Time Is It?" After a few filler tunes, the album does end on a strong note as "Someday All This Will Be Road" and "Beasts in the Woods" save the album from being a washout. As an album, Turn It Upside Down is a disappointment compared to Pocket Full of Kryptonite but its best tracks are certainly worth hearing and downloading.
