It's just so much FUN!
Staunton Lick is the best - it just grows so well - and impossible to turn off when it comes on. King Rahm - beautiful. Homage to Patagonia - twinkly. In the Bath - gorgeous.
These guys did a great job. I'm envious of their ability to actually find a new twist on music. Sure, they're going to be lobbed into the chillout section, but it's not quite right - they're far more into having fun than lying around listening to banal washy chord changes.
I hope that they're still doing the gatefold sleeve - it cost a lost money originally, but I think that they've probably recouped the expense - it's so bloody good.
A complete package. And the penultimate track (which I'm listening to now) - Cole Porter meets the dancefloor is my take on it.
You will not regret buying this album if you've got this far.
Personal favourite is Staunton Lick which could easily have come form Nightmares On Wax's album 'Car boot Soul'. By the way that's another essential album. Both of these are truly sublime in its truest meaning:'awakening feelings of awe and veneration'.
Just go and buy it now. For the sake of humanity music like this should be heard by all those feeling jaded and disillusioned with the state of our modern 'pop' (read 'pap') music.
When's the next release guys????
The tunes are not so varied, but not similar either. So if you like one track, you'll probably like them all. If I had to pick my favourite, it would be 'Page One'. Once it gets going, it evolves into a powerful, moving quality dance tune. Another is 'His Majesty King Raam', an interesting, surreal yet effective mix of a nursery rhyme melody and a heavy hip hop beat. Great stuff, beautiful music.
The narration is not overdone and doesn't spoil the music. In fact, I think it's necessary to fill the voids on an otherwise instrumental album. Part of the appeal is it's simplicity. It's not a complicated, futuristic sound like, say, Royksopp.
If I had to pick a fault, it would be that the tracks are too long and are sometimes a bit repetitive. But still, this is easily one of my favourite CDs of all time, certainly in its class. A must for anyone's CD rack.
It's chilled, it's jazzy, it's funky, it's just perfect. You can sit and chill to it, you can dance to it, it makes perfect background music, and it'll make you laugh. This album will fit perfectly into any situation (Especially having a bath...)
I'd advise everyone to buy this album. If you're into this style of music, you simply cannot go wrong, and if it's something you've not really heard before, there can be no better introduction.
Destined to be one of the true classic albums
That said, Lemon Jelly are well named in that it's a tiny bit sickly, and bit too twee in places, with samples of children singing, and making snoring sounds with a synth. A bit too look-at-me for my taste, but despite that, it's become a constantly played CD for me! Definitly worth a buy.
This is a wonderful album that restored my faith in music. Witty, optimistic, beautiful - everything you want in an album. 'In the bath' hooks you and after that you just don't want it to end. Each track has its own unique flavour but somehow the whole thing hangs together and creates a classic blend.
The sleeve artwork is a piece of beauty, and you can amuse friends and family playing spot the hidden guru. The cover design means its too big to fit in my cd rack, but luckily its always next to my stereo anyway waiting to be played again.
It's like basking a warm summer's evening in your favourite place with your best friends and a fair amount of your chosen way of relaxing. His majesty King Raam will rule forever and a day.
