BBC Review

They might have received enough praise already, but when the music is this good, you've just got to give them even more. "Space Walk" is the first single to be taken form Lemon Jelly's long awaitedsecond album, Lost Horizons, and shines just as brightly as anything they've done previously.

Inspired by the Apollo space missions, "Space Walk" uses spoken word samples taken from the first moon landing in 1969 and melts them effortlessly into a warm, organic groove as low slung as your belt-less jeans. With layers of wistful guitar arpeggios and tinkly water drop pianos, "Space Walk" should also cheer up a few ad men looking for the music to their next car-driving-down-long-winding-road advert.

There's nothing particularly new or revolutionary here, but its all done with an infectious enthusiasm and summery gusto that makes "Space Walk" almost impossible to dislike. However, part of the Lemon Jelly signature seems to be that omni-present, arpeggiated acoustic guitar which is there on virtually everything they write these days much more so than on any of the tunes from the 3 EPs that together formed the first album.

On the flip, "Return to Patagonia" is crammed full of nifty little samples and, as such, is probably more suited to the more discerning cut 'n' paste fetishists out there. Its also great to hear something where the presence of a sultry saxophone doesn't necessarily equate to cheesy-lounge jazz and Lemon Jelly pull this off effortlessly with the help of oh-so-funky double bass and subtle string samples.

Set against a backdrop of light, airy breaks, they create a gentle and contagious rhythm that should come with a Warning: Smooth sign on the packet. There's a sleek production throughout that matches up to the expensive, leather bound sleeve which, I assume, will make sure it wont slip off your coffee table.

Lemon Jelly are still impressively unclassifiable, never take the easy route and always aspire to make music which is much more than the sum of its parts. This is arty, melancholic and gentle - and just a taste of what to expect from the forthcoming long-player. Well worth investigating.

Heard this track at the start of September on John Peels show. If you liked the tracks on the KY album this is another instant classic. If you've never heard of Lemon Jelly they offer an interesting blend of jazz, laid back almost trance, and pure genius. You will have heard many of their songs as backing music in tv ads - like the Witch Doctor ad on tv. Softer than some of their other tracks such as Kneel before your God and Homage to Patagonia, this will doubtless also be ruined for single sales by overplaying as the backing music to several terrible ads, but I still think it's a brilliant track

Even though this single tends to be full price and has only one rare Lemon Jelly track on it ('Pushy'), it's probably the most treasured single I've ever owned. I was loathe to spend a few quid for one song, but that feeling was dispelled when it arrived...

Firstly, it has to be the most gorgeous looking single ever, and that's saying a LOT for a Lemon Jelly single. The CD and packaging have a unity of design that makes it wonderful to hold, as I can only imagine the impossibly-rare 'Soft/Rock' vinyl in denim to be.

And then there's 'Pushy', the 7 minute rare track which samples an interview with a shy little girl who doesn't fit in because she's so quiet and not very... well, pushy. I don't think I've ever heard a song so achingly beautiful or disarmingly heartfelt as this one, and I'm usually fighting back tears every time I hear it. It could have easily fit on the KY album: it's as sweetly emotional as 'His Majesty King Raam' and as funkily nostalgic as 'The Staunton Lick'.

This is my favourite among the highly-treasured Lemon Jelly singles. If you loved the albums and wondered about the singles, please do start with this one... it's a beaut.

There is no-one quite like Lemon Jelly, and on this 3 track cd, they create their usual trademark blend of almost undescribable brilliance. Spacewalk is ace, but the real highlight is Pushy. It's the kind of song that needs to be heard to be appreciated. Lemon Jelly are almost impossible not to like, despite whatever else you are into. Sublime and well worth checking out.

I have to say that this is one amazing CD! I have heard 'Spacewalk' and 'Return to Patagonia' on it before, but they are great cuts of the versions on the album, 'Lost Horizon'. The second track, 'Pushy' is amazing too. It's similar to 'Ramblin' Man' from the album, as it starts low, then breaks in to a head nodding beat, before adding a little story over the top!

The packaging is amazing too! It gives it an authentic look and feel, as well as making it unique amongst your CD racks. You'll see once you buy it...

Typically brilliant. In particular 'Pushy' is excellent - intriguing, amusing and thought provoking. I just wish they'd do another album !
