5.0 out of 5 stars If I could give 6 stars I would ! 26 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
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........

4.0 out of 5 stars Vinyl Comments 21 Jun 2012
By Phelix
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
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!!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a classic! 1 Nov 2002
Format:Audio CD
The songs of Jellyfish are fabulously written, undulating wonderfully throughout. Each tells a story in a very modern way -the band are like a Californian Crowded House or '(Beach)Boys to Men' - wonderfully melodic, seriously slick production but not overly-stage-managed. There is space aplenty for dramatic lyrics to burst through - "this vodka does a memory clear, though it's too hard to imagine what these tears are for", and all in an upbeat pop song - great juxtaposition, high class.
I saw Jellyfish play live at the Town and Country Club in London in late Summer 1991 - what a gig. 4 guys standing in a line in front of the curtain, the drummer played standing up with just hihats, snare, floor tom and bass drum, and then proceeded to sing everything - blew my mind and they were incredibly tight. It was all over too soon, but thankfully 'this stubborn memory hadn't faded' when I wrote this and so I'm off to have another listen - buy it NOW!
I recently bought the edition with the 5 live tracks - hear their version of Paul McCartney's 'Someone's knocking at the door' into 'That is why' to know just how good they were.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a Start ! 26 Feb 2014
By J Mark
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is terrific stuff, plenty clever melodies with the well documented influences of McCartneyish Beatles, the Beach Boys etc. Andy Sturmer sounds quite Lennonish vocally, especially on tracks like 'The King is Half Undressed' (probably my favourite) and there are many highlights such as 'All I want is Everything' which if memory serves is not unlike the sound of the band Cast with its thumping beat, 'Now She Knows She's Wrong' and 'She Still Loves Him'.

If you've ever wondered about this band, as I did for 20 years or so, give this a go. There is a version with 6 extra tracks on it, some of which are on the 'Jellyfish Best' album. My only regret is that I did not buy this sooner.

Get it if you can.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just fantastic 2 Sep 2013
By Sarah
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is one of my favourite albums of all time. This purchase was to replace a lost CD as I don't play mp3's on my home system. It's tragic that the band just made two albums. This it tight, perfect pop with interesting and intelligent lyrics and great musicianship. Still sounds fresh today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! 8 Nov 2011

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!
