I stumbled across Jellfish completely by accident, they were supporting INXS at Wembley stadium, July 91, and performed a set that totally blew me away, with not a note out of tune nor a beat missed they performed the whole of what I was to discover was the Bellybutton album.

After being mesmerised I had to buy the album and was not disappointed, 10 tracks of pop perfection, elements of The Beatles, The Beach boys and a measure of Queen, Bellybutton is tonic for the ears.

Sadly Jellyfish were not to pleasure the world of music for long, but the glorious music lives on and can still make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, a true and rare treat for any fan of great music.

Just stunning. This album is a masterpiece. Witty lyrics, fantastic songs, beautiful melodies & harmonies, great instrumentation & arranging, superb playing and an overall amazing production. Its like the best bits of the beatles, queen, elo, the beach boys and supertramp all rolled into one. Whilst Noel Gallagher was trying to be a beatle, he'd have killed for songs this good. It is the album by which all other powerpop bands should be measured by and one of the most criminally overlooked albums ever. No duds, no duffers, just 45 minutes or so of pure genius. It will make you feel good about life, and to be frank, if you dont own this album then I honestly feel sorry for you. Buy it now.....and you want stop talking about it........

Songwriters Roger Manning Jr and Jason Falkner formed Jellyfish in the late 80's and, after just 2 critically lauded albums, split the American band and dissapeared. Whilst both still continue to record and release solo albums it's Bellybutton, and it's follow up Spilt Milk, with which the two built their reputation as cult powerpop gods.
Bellybutton is the sound of Wings, Beatles, Queen, Squeeze and Badfinger reworked and revamped for the early 90's. The influence of these bands runs through every track on the record and, propelled along by lashings of vocal harmonies, smart lyrics and gorgeous melodies, there really isn't a bad song on it.
'The King Is Half Undressed' and the bouncy 'Baby's Coming Back' were both minor UK hits but deserved much better,'Bedspring Kiss' is the kind of beautifully constructed ballad that Macca would kill for and 'Now She Knows She's Wrong' is a great uptempo rocker. The real pleasure is in the detail - the Penny Lane references on 'I Wanna Stay Home' and the lyrics - 'She dots her i's with a smiley face/a work of art/in all but taste' - Chris Difford would approve.
Bellybutton received the kind of rave reviews from the music press that should have ensured massive sales and sent their collective star into orbit. However it would take another 3 years before Britpop would kick in and Jellyfish's Beatley retro sound would become fashionable once more. By that time of course the band were gone.
Bellybutton is corker of a record and if you like Crowded House, The Feeling and the aforementioned Fabs then this will be the best investment you'll make all year. Classic stuff.

I cannot fault the music on this release, a 5 star offering for sure. Beware with the 2012 vinyl release that A: The picture used by Amazon is for the limited initial run and shows the 'Tri-Fold' sleeve which is no longer available and B: This album has not been remastered and like it's sister release, Spilt Milk, is cut from the original masters and therefore, any sound quality issues that existed on the original vinyl release are still present on this 180gm repressing. Can't fault the packaging either, just the fact that the sound quality doesn't do this release any justice and therefore loses a star. See my review for Spilt Milk for a slightly more in-depth analysis!!

Somebody mentioned it in an Amazon Discussion entitled "Please recommend a little known album" that I recently came across. After then checking out the reviews on this page I had no hesitation in ordering a copy, which arrived several days ago, since when I must have played it about twenty times. It was good the first listen, but it just keeps getting better and better! It's playing right now, probably for about the fifth time in a row. It's addictive! And I just love it. How could anyone NOT love it! Excellent!

As a Jellyfish fan from the beginning, this album means so much to me. I love every single song and to complete my collection I thought I'd better buy this as it's remastered and has all the extra tracks (note however, all the extra tracks are on the fan club boxset ).
So why only four stars you ask?
As I was listening to "I wanna stay home" I thought I was going mad, did they really snip a few bars from the intro?
Yes, they did. As another reviewer posted, this makes no sense. Omnivore have got some explaining to do, as butchered tracks are not what Jellyfish fans want, or expect quite frankly. (As an extra edit, from the comments of another reviewer, it seems that they have used a edited promo version instead of the album version, but this to me is still inexcusable!).

A hot summers day in July 1991 brought thousands to Wembley Stadium to watch INXS play the gig of their lives. Twenty years later the memories of that day are as vivid as if it were only last weekend. Amongst the other bands playing were a little known ensemble called Jellyfish. Few of the audience had heard of them and when they were announced a decision had to be made, shall I go to the loo or stay and listen. Thankfully I decided that my bladder had to wait as, apart from INXS, they stole the show with their cheeky little songs. The album is fantastic and a joy to listen to. McFly covered one of the songs, Baby's Coming Back, a few years ago and didn't do it justice. So if you are looking for a nice, uncomplicated bunch of songs to listen to that will make you forget about any worries you may have for an hour or so then I would urge you to buy this album.
