This CD is the ideal opportunity to get an idea of the power pop bliss that was Jellyfish. Although they only graced us for a few short years they managed to release two superb albums (Bellybutton & Spilt Milk). Their music was full of melody, intricate arrangements and harmonies, clever and witty lyrics.
Bursting with both power and subtlety their influences include The Beatles, Badfinger, The Beach Boys, Big Star, Cheap Trick, The Raspberries, Squeeze and even Supertramp and Queen but their output was never deriative or unoriginal.
Lauded by critics and a hardcore fanbase they unfortunatley never achieved a deserved commerical success and they broke up.
From the ashes they have all went on to produce some wonderful solo ventures including The Grays, Imperial Drag, Umajets and the weird Moog Cook Book. There's also the production and session activity with the likes of The Black Crowes, Brendan Benson, Aimee Mann, Beck and Paul McCartney.
So if you would like some tasty sonic candy treats that won't rot your teeth or ears, take a dip into the wonderful world of Jellyfish, you won't be dissapointed.
