fallen back in love with this album after years. its one of the best. I thought I'd gone off it but its seduced me back into its sumptuous musical sophistication. goes to show if something really is timeless it never loses its appeal. hurray for jellyfish unsung genius!!

The follow up to Bellybutton is a more adventurous and less commercial affair. Lots of great influences clear, perhaps more 70's than 60's. 'Joining a Fanclub' and 'He's My Best Friend' particular highlights. Shame it's missing their 'No Matter What' cover but there is lots to enjoy here.
Incredible "lost" power pop album. I hear Weezer and Ben Folds though of course it predates either. Tons of Beatles, incredible harmonies, hooks and great Brian Wilson-esque instrumental flourishes. 30 odd reviews saying similar so what are you waiting for?
Jellyfish are and will always be breathtakingly wonderful. This long-awaited remaster just adds to the enjoyment. The extra tracks are, indeed, on the Fanclub box-set release. Add it to your completists' collection.
