Sep 25, 2013Early Lemon Jelly is heard to beat. They put out some of the most innovative and unique electronica of the last 20 years. Most of my favourite LJ material resides on their Eps.
The advantage of an EP is the duration its easier to sustain the quality and focus over a shorter period. I thought Lost Horizons was decent but felt the material struggled to keep me engaged the whole way through. I feel the same about this record some great moments and probably would have been another classic EP if shorter but as a long player the impact of the great moments are diluted by the lesser tracks that feel as if they are simply padding out the album.
If you like the band then this is well worth checking out and is still superior to most of what their contemporaries produced at the time.… Full Review »
Jun 19, 2013As many other reviews have said, this album sis a grower! After one complete listen through I was really disappointed. After KY & Lost Horizons I considered 64-95 to be quite a lazy album. A band with immense vision and talent who had only used about half it...
However after a few more listens I'd say this album is actually very good. In some ways it is more subtle than the previous 2, it is not as quirky, jolly or humorous but it is the tiny little embellishments that build the album into a whole. One of those albums that you can hear something different everytime you play it.… Full Review »
