Album Review

The old Spacemen 3 cliché seems to apply here: Lemon Jelly appear to be taking drugs to make music to take drugs to. But this is an organized kind of drugginess, as each song is subtitled with a particular year between 1964 and 1995, designating the year from which each song's samples were generated. If that's not heady enough for a concept album, a look at the samples list is even more mind-bending: among them are U.S. soul-pop singer Monica, heavy rockers Masters of Reality, a Maori vocalist, and retro oddball du jour William Shatner. With the concept description thankfully out of the way, how does Fred Deakin and Nick Franglen's third long-player stack up? Oh, it's absolutely splendid! It's like a mad, beautiful mix of Lemon Jelly's past albums, the crunchy rock of the Chemical Brothers, the experimental sonic glee of the Go! Team, the dancefloor-fueling beats of Basement Jaxx, and the spaciness of the Orb at the peak of their powers. Most of the tracks are built around one vocal sample, usually the song's title repeated over and over. Though this formula might sound boring on paper, these lush, rich, organic, etc. (take your pick of a hyperbolic adjective) sound collages simply explode off the disc, making one dash for the dancefloor and perhaps shed a tear at the emotion that drips from the melodies. The atypical Shatner closer is a dirge-ish psychedelic masterpiece that feels like a Dark Side of the Moon B-side. Whether or not '64-'95 gets the acclaim it deserves and takes off commercially, the album sees Lemon Jelly laying down the law in genius fashion. It sits mightily among the best work from the peers mentioned above and others like Air, Zero 7, and Daft Punk. It's breathtaking and essential listening for all fans of electronic music.

Customer Reviews

Excellent groovy tunes!

Uncomparable to their previous two albums, '64-'95 reaches out to the scattered sounds of different electronic dance music genres. In classic Jelly style, however, their humor and irreverent charm is what ties each track together, making this album highly enjoyable and repeatable. Tracks like "Come Down on Me" and "The Shouty Track" are definite highlights, using a harder breakbeat sound than their usual. Also new to the repetoire is the deep house track "Stay With You," which has a great groove and stunning atmosphere. Can't forget to mention "Go" where William Shatner gives a tremendous vocal performance. Though 4 1/2 stars is a more fitting rating for this album, I give it 5 because it's the most approachable and the most satisfying listen from their catalog.

LEMON JELLY IS SICK

I love lemon jelly. It's like techno or trance or something, except interesting. And good. And beautiful/creative, instead of machine like. As shown by songs like "Slow Train", Lemon Jelly also likes to be adventurous and has a sense of fun. This album is definitely more beat driven than Lost Horizons, which is my favorite from Lemon Jelly. Lost Horizons has some of the most beautiful, pleasurable, and innocent tracks I've ever heard. But I've loved basically everthing Lemon Jelly has ever produced. Along with Boards of Canada, my favorite electronica (I'm pretty sure that's the right term). I would highly recommend this album to anyone who likes unusual and interesting music with a good beat.

Slow train baby

This is an overall ok album. It has a couple of really good songs. If you are only looking to buy one of their songs, I stongly recomend that you buy slow train. All of their songs are pretty catchy, and are fun to dnce too.
