Album Review

From their unusual but forgettable name to their information-free but visually stunning artwork (one half of Lemon Jelly, Fred Deakin, is a noted graphic designer). Lemon Jelly court a sort of smiley face anonymity, kind of like Boards of Canada without that act's darker impulses. Their second album, 2002's Lost Horizons, is a delightful but slightly faceless blend of lounge pop, subtle beats, found sound, with mellow jazz influences. The elements shift slightly from song to song, as in the odd, compressed vocal samples and watery keyboards of "Space Walk," compared to the coy, kicky jazz noir of the soundtrack-like "The Curse of Ka'Zar," but there's an overarching sense to Lost Horizons: the idea that this might even be a proper concept album if one put the work into deciphering it. But it's so summery, pretty, and enjoyable to chill out to that detective work simply sounds too hard. Highlights include the dreamy, acoustic guitar-based single "Nice Weather for Ducks," and the giggly, tongue-in-cheek "Ramblin' Man."

Customer Reviews

I'm smiling......

Wow. I just purchased this album, and their first release "Lemon Jelly.ky", and I'm really not quite sure how to verbalize how I feel. Maybe I shouldn't have opted to write a review. However, I was certainly compelled to share my joy with others. These songs are bound to provide many a happy moment for me, and , like my fellow contributor, I only wish I had discovered this stuff much earlier. Lemon Jelly tastes REALLY good.

I'm hooked. I've loved Lemon Jelly since I heard their first album (Lemon Jelly.ky), a sometimes-unsettling but always fascinating blend of downtempo electronica with what sounds like soundtracks to childhood fairy tales. Their second album, Lost Horizons, creates a mental landscape that never fails to take me on a mental trip to Patagonia, or feel I'm the subject of the mysterious Experiment No. 6. Their hit single, "Nice Weather for Ducks", is the hook for this electronica masterpiece, and shouldn't be missed.

just amazing...

hard to even verbalize how astounding this album is. beautiful composition, and no matter what, always puts me in a good mood. it could put you to sleep, too, so amazingly peaceful and relaxing. it's hard not to daydream to this album... i suggest buying the hard copy if you can, although this is cheaper. beautiful album art.
