Product Description


Since starting out with a brand of folky garage-rock that owed as much to love (of bands like NRBQ and the Flamin' Groovies) as it did aptitude, Yo La Tengo have come a long way. And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out completes the transformation that the band began on Electr-o-Pura and continued with I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One; the Hoboken, New Jersey trio is now more of an experimental, dreamy rock band with an interest in sounds and an aptitude for textures. Moving away from Ira Kaplan's guitar, the band now often coalesces around wistful keyboards ("Our Way to Fall", "The Crying of Lot G") and gently loping loops ("Let's Save Tony Orlando's House", "You Can Have It All"); things do pick up now and again, and there is--as always--one genuine guitar freak-out. Over time, the husband-and-wife team of Kaplan and Georgia Hubley, together with James McNew, have gradually stopped imitating and paying homage to their forebears; here, they're meandering off in their own direction, taking their sweet time about it. For YLT, the journey is more important than the destination--and it's a beautiful day for a walk. --Randy Silver

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Nothing July 12 2002
Format:Audio CD
Usually, using the words 'mellow', 'laid-back' and 'drones' in a rock review conjures up images of Phish fans sitting around in the back of a windowless van eating Cherry Garcia ice cream and swapping puffs off a strategically-modified empty can of Yoo-Hoo. And, hey, maybe 'And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out' will serve as the soundtrack to just such a scene, but the genius of the record is that it'll appeal just as much to hip indie rock fans as well. "Nothing" serves as a fine companion-listen to The Flaming Lips' "The Soft Bulletin", in that it is a record attuned to the everyday lives of human beings, while remaining defiantly experimental. As The Oklahoman Lips ponder the connections between folding laundry and existential angst, YLT from NJ are content bringing space rock to awkward cocktail parties.
"Everyday" and "Saturday" are basically cut from the same cloth: spooky, hushed vocals over robo-Moe drumbeats, with sparse bits of noise added to the background. Sterling Morrison once said that the VU song 'Venus in Furs' could've been about anything; it was the droning, monotonous sound of the beast, not the subject matter, that frightened 60's listeners. YLT prove that he was not entirely wrong.
"Our Way to Fall", "Last Days of Disco", "The Crying of Lot G" and "From Black to Blue" feature Ira Kaplan singing/narrating the arc of a relationship, from hooking up to breaking up and beyond. His voice has that ghostly quality that allows his experiences to become that of the listener, even as his lyrics are too case-specific to be universal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Indie June 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
A quiet, melancholic and gripping record, "And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out" is a solid and convincing effort from one of the most compelling bands of the current alternative rock scenario. While not a masterpiece or a mind-blowing experience, this little album offers an intriguing collection of hypnotic songs worth listening. Moments like the haunting opener "Everyday" or the sublime "You Can Have It All" show this band`s strenght, providing tender and delicate compositions. Appropriate to listen to at a calm night, this is a record worth checking.

5.0 out of 5 stars where I belong, where I belong... May 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've had this record for a while, so I can't remember If I wrote a review or not, but anyway---listening to again, and it's always lovely each time. Albums like this prove you don't need over-top-performance and aggressive euphoria to make great masterpeices. The only real rocker is "Cherry Chapstick". For the most part, it's extremely atmospheric, subtle, emotionally understated, gently hallucinogenic, quietly trippy music. In synopse, a good trip and a great album. Whether you can relate to the love relationship-centered lyrics or not, if you dig emotionally and mentally stimulating music at all, you'll be sure to get lost in the softly meditative textures.
P.S: "Night Falls On Hoboken" is one of my favorite songs of all time, along with let's say "The Diamond Sea" or something. A gentle acoustic shoegazer ballad with hushed vocals that gives way to 15-some minutes of droning, meandering blissful tones and noises.

5.0 out of 5 stars hands down a must own April 27 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I would have to say that this is the best release by Yo La Tengo. I won't waste anybodys time explaining my thoughts, but all I will say is that Yo La Tengo got it right when they threw this album together. The lyrics and downtempo beats are guarenteed to send chills down your spine and for that hour and twenty mintues, send you into a warm place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this YLT Album First April 4 2004
By Keith
Format:Audio CD
If you're going to buy anything put out by Yo La Tengo, buy this album. YLT has changed and evolved their music with every album they have put out. This album could the album that catches them in their possible prime. Although the album in prominently subdued, the tone is huge. Every song is worth listening to. YLT has been compared to The Velvet Underground a lot, which is warranted. This album does have influences from the sounds of John Cale and Lou Reed.
This is the CD you put on when you are just hanging out. Everyone will want to know who's playing.

5.0 out of 5 stars a whole new look at shoegazer Dec 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
My bloody valentine perfected the shoegazer movement in 1991 so lets all forget about it and move on right? Wrong. The thing that sets Yo La Tengo's quiet album apart from the Loveless copycats is approach. The brilliance of this album occured to me last night. Whereas MBV needed so many layers of guitar feedback they put their studio out of busniess, YLT create the same feeling with a simple guitar/bass/drums setup and almost no overtracking. Directly comparing the bands would be foolish, but its nice to know that Yo La Tengo recorded the perfect shoegaze album on their first try and moved on like they always do.

3.0 out of 5 stars Further signs of weakness May 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
Sigh. As an old-school YLT fan, I have to say that I find ATNTIIO to be a disappointment. Now mind you, it does have a great deal to offer: the only known song derived from a Simpsons line ("Let's Save Tony Orlando's House"), several shy but sweet love songs (the best of which is "Our Way to Fall"), the amazing "Tear Are In Your Eyes" (one of their five best songs, I think), and the cheerful, hard-rocking Sonic Youth tribute "Cherry Chapstick." Even the standard long song, the seventeen-minute "Night Falls on Hoboken," is better than the annoying "Spec Bebop" from the previous record. And yet still, I find myself consistently listening to only five or six songs from this record. What's the problem? I'm not sure. It can't be that the rock & roll quotient has decreased, although it has; "Cherry Chapstick" is the only raver to be found. But a band of YLT's skill can work around that easily. Nor is it an increased reliance on keyboards and electronic percussion, though I do miss the rawness of, say, "Electr-O-Pura." Ultimately, I think what I'm missing is the tunefulness. Tunefulness and pop hooks have been key weapons in YLT's arsenal since day one, and it hurts to hear such sloppy tuneless tracks as "Saturday" or "Last Days of Disco" from them. The singing, never YLT's strong suit (although not a weak point either) has regressed to Ira mumbling and Georgia whispering; what's the point of writing better lyrics (as YLT are) if you can barely hear them? And finally, this record needs editing. Seventy seven minutes is just too long. "Night Falls on Hoboken" could be six minutes shorter without losing much, and of the three other six-plus minute songs, only "Cherry Chapstick" holds my interest throughout its length. "Painful" and "Electr-o-Pura" showed that Ira, Georgia, and James were great editors, but they seem to have forgotten that step this time around. This is worth owning, just as any YLT album is, but it's also one of their weakest efforts.
