"The World is Somewhere Else" (2006) is Goldoolins' 3rd album, following "Goldoolins" (2004) and "Songs of the Turly Crio" (2005).
"Eclectic, tuneful rock with a largely acoustic root, though it's not at all predictable...this is far more interesting than much of what gets played on many radio programs that focus on contemporary singer/songwriter-oriented material with an acoustic flavor." (4 stars)
Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide
"The band evolved to a rather independent style of their own...Another great release, and a perfect listen. Recommended."
Gerald Van Waes, Psychedelic Folk Magazine, Belgium
"On this Record, the band have stretched their musical wings to produce a more complex, mature and thoughtful album...the band have composed a rich tapestry of songs, full of tight harmonies, flowing melodies and dazzling arrangements, giving the songs a timeless beauty."
Simon Lewis, Terrascope Magazine, UK
"This third release by the Israeli psych-folk trio is their most satisfying...they take many sonic risks here that show a maturity that may open new territory beyond their folk roots."
Mike Wood, Foxy Digitalis Magazine, USA
"The third release by Israel’s folk rock outfit is its most coherent one to date...The World is Somewhere Else is less accessible than the band’s previous albums, but also all the more rewarding for the listener."
Avi Shaked, Maelstrom Magazine, USA
"An amazingly talented band who have a prolific musical output but no signs of running out of impressive creative ideas. Definitely recommended."
