    It's not revolutionary, but there's not a duff track to be found. [Aug 2018, p.24]

    With the fountain of material springing out of Newcombe's Berlin studio in the first part of the 2010s, the quality level has been rather hit or miss, but Something Else is a solid effort and somewhat of a return to form for the veteran band.

    It finds them on classic BJM form--a warm, densely analogue journey through inner space punctuated by churchy keyboards and tambourines that rattle like bones. [Summer 2018, p.86]

    There are mixed results as some tracks on Something Else feel like the band are going through the motions, while others flow with more energy.

    A more structured back to basics approach really works for them. [Sep 2018, p.94]

    Animal Wisdom is pretty enough, while drone epic Silent Stream nails his Velvets fetish. But to call the other Nuggets-style fodder here "something else" is overstating it. [Summer 2018, p.109]

    Definitely a back to basics approach by BJM, think the reviews deserve more credit personally. Heard the album live recently and they are inDefinitely a back to basics approach by BJM, think the reviews deserve more credit personally. Heard the album live recently and they are in great form. The songs need some listening, and you need to appreciate Psych music, but i love this album. Who dreams of cats is a great up beat tune, and there are others which are kind of reminiscent of their 90s hay day. Give it a chance Expand
