    A laid-back album Altogether may be, it still leaves a sense of anticipation as to where the group will head next.

    Altogether is perhaps the lightest and most pop-oriented release in the band's canon, doubling down on bright guitar tones and jazzy chord voicings, and relying even more heavily on lush synth parts to augment their sound. While its feather-soft tone flirts with the smooth banality of easy listening, parts of the album are far more clever and well-structured than first impressions might suggest.

    While Altogether is a pleasantly enough constructed record, it suffers a similar problem to Nothing's Dancing On the Blacktop from last year – it's just not particularly enthralling for older fans.

    Even when Turnover try spicing things up with congas, a violin, and a couple of ill-fitting saxophone features, Altogether tastes incredibly vanilla, like a playlist of department store slow jams.

    Anxiety, anguish and unrest can often produce great art, but so can spiritual harmony. It's just a shame that in the case of Turnover, contentment sounds so bland.

    I'm by no means a professional critic. But I definitely think this album is the weakest of the 3 full release albums Turnover has made.I'm by no means a professional critic. But I definitely think this album is the weakest of the 3 full release albums Turnover has made. However, I still think it's pretty good. Other than the weird tonal shift of Ceramic Sky, and Parties feeling very lacking and simplistic in terms of lyrics, this album is rich with good vibes and a very nostalgic feel. Reminds me of home and I think that's why I like listening to it when I'm in a nostalgic mood. Expand
