  1. Several [guest singers] distinguish themselves‑-SoKo all breathy, Lorraine nice and rough‑-as does (Tjinder) Singh, changing up the rhythms as he "milks" his usual tiny store of melody.

    Urban Turban is another irresistible Cornershop mash-up. [Aug 2012, p.86]

    Urban Turban is more grin-inducing than a piano-playing cat.

    Full of life and sunshine. [No.87, p.53]

    Inconsistency's a little too much the watchword, but there are none more Something For Everyone.

    After 21 years, it's hard to believe Tjinder Singh and Ben Ayres are still capable of producing moments as vivid and relevant as these.

    The tracks are well made and good stuff, but on the whole Urban Turban feels a little too all over the shop to pack the wallop it deserves.

    Urban Turban is consolidation for Cornershop, pulling together old and new tracks and showing as many hands as they can.

    Mostly, it's funky pop, half-deconstructed and relentlessly optimistic. [Jun 2012, p.71

    There's the occasional meander and they'd surely revel in a bigger production budget, but there's nobody remotely like them and few who seem to actually enjoy being in a band more.
  12. May 11, 2012
    Urban Turban feels especially emblematic of a band that's fully liberated itself from any commercial or audience expectations and shifted its experimental ethos into overdrive.
  13. May 15, 2012
    All of this is creative and fun, but also a little half-baked, and ultimately impersonal.
