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.

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.

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.

I feel that this was written off too fast in 1994. Of course music was turned upside down in 1994, so in all the hoopla this album was dismissed too soon. Of course down here in Florida the first single to be played on the radio was "Cleopatra's Cat". To me that was a mistake to release as a single as it doesn't have the feel to be a single. I feel that "Beats In The Woods" would've been a better choice as it has that "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" beat to it. This was a victim of circumstance I believe, and it's about time to let people know that this is a good album. It's not quite as edgy as "Pocket Full Of Kryptonite", but still packs power with songs like "You Let Your Heart Go Too Fast", and "Indifference", so it does have potential. I feel that if it was released in 1996-97 it might have been a big hit, but 1994 everyone was still into grunge, so this was pushed to the back.

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.
