Allmusic4.5/5 stars[1]

The New You! is the fourth album by the London-based acid jazz band Corduroy, released in 1997.[2] The track "The Joker Is Wild" was released as a single and reached No. 80 in the UK Singles Chart in March 1997.[3][4]

Reception[edit]

AllMusic awarded the album 4.5 stars, its review by S. T. Erlewine saying, "Working from the same acid-jazz foundation that informed their previous records, the band has added slightly ironic flourishes of lounge music and movie soundtracks while beginning to develop a sophisticated sense of pop craft, largely modeled after Steely Dan."[1]
