  • Summary: While the first full-length for the English chill-out duo, 'LemonJelly.KY,' was a collection of previously released singles, 'Lost Horizons' represents their first true album, with eight new tracks clocking in at precisely one hour in length.

  1. Nick Franglen and Fred Deakin rarely miss with this album.
  2. Such perfectionism can easily be construed as soullessness, but I think what Deakin and Franglin are actually striving for here is to strike a balance between the warmth and humanity of their music's sounds and the machine-like grace of its flawless production.
  3. Simultaneously laid back and bursting with intensity, 'Lost Horizons' is a film score inviting each of us to direct our own personal movie.
  4. Music that's at once beautiful, joyful, and pure aural pleasure.
  5. A delightful but slightly faceless blend of lounge pop, subtle beats, found sound and mellow jazz influences.
  6. Like Moon Safari-era Air, unleashes shimmering, cinematic musical waves that gently wash over you but eventually suck you in entirely. [Nov 2002, p.113]
  7. Feels like a widescreen Technicolor dream.

    Great introduction from Lemonjelly, with lots of brilliant tracks. For me, it's not quite as focused as some of their better work and while I love some of the tracks on here, I get a bit bored with others and tend to skip. I can't say this for some of their other releases for example lemonjelly.ky Expand
