Product Description

Introducing '64-'95, the third instalment in Lemon Jelly's rich history of long-players. Breaking away from any (Jelly) mould, Fred Deakin and Nick Franglen have altered the ship's course somewhat and we are treated to '64-'95; their most diverse record yet. Lemon Jelly have made an album entirely based upon unlikely samples swiped from their vast record collections. Not unlike one of their DJ sets, they flip between musical styles at will and make light work of cramming metal, 70s pop, Euro house, R&B, punk and more into just one album. The title, '64-'95, simply signifies the span in years of the various samples they've used and, as ambitious as the whole thing sounds, it works. The list of musical mavericks willingly plundered in the cause of the good ship Jelly includes 70s popsters Gallagher and Lyle, Scottish post-punkers the Scars, US R&B balladeer Monica and none-more-heavy metallers, the Masters of Reality. Each track manages to come as a complete stylistic surprise without losing any flow from one to the next; having said that, it's probably best not to mention the Maori crooner or Captain James T. Kirk for the moment.

The resurgence of rock in most aspects of popular music has certainly not gone unnoticed by Lemon Jelly's Fred Deakin and Nick Franglen as '64-'95 is littered with epic guitars and explosive refrains nestling amongst the downbeat soul for which they are best known. Opener "Come Down on Me" is tense, fiery, and for the most part dominated by the partnership of crashing power-chords and a lead synth that, while not big-beat, wouldn't sound out of place on an old Lo-Fi's or Chemical Brothers' album. However, for anyone missing the sugary sweetness of Lost Horizons, most of the album is business as usual--strict drum patterns and rolling, mesmeric loops of lush strings, acoustic guitars (that sound great if a little bit cheesy), and lovable bass hooks. Among the deviations in formula are "The Shouty Song," which comes across as some sort of harsh, contemporary jig and "The Slow Train," which utilizes a barber shop quartet to fantastic effect. From start to finish '64-'95 is pretty much devoid of filler and it culminates in the wondrous epic "Go," with the beat poet talents of William Shatner building to a crescendo that'll send anyone home with a smile on their face. --David Trueman

Like some of the other reviewers here I was really given a jolt upon first listening to the newest Lemon Jelly. I plugged in the cd and sat back ready for the usual lush soundscapes LJ has given us in the past. This time I was forced to sit up and raise an eyebrow. There's even a disclaimer on a sticker that comes on the cd "This is not like our old album." How true. I tried repeatedly to just sit and listen and I couldn't. Then I took a road trip...sailing down a desert highway at a speed MUCH higher than the posted limit I plugged in '64-'95 and it all made sense!!! Suddenly I was hearing sounds I hadn't heard before and as I sped along the road it seemed the saguaros were bobbing up and down with me to 'Don't stop me now'. Later I saw a commercial for "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and they were using "Come down on me" and I thought "Yeah! Someone else gets it!!!" It's about moving forward! I feel sorry for those who want LJ to stand still in one place and expect artists to just pump out the same old crap over and over(not that ANYTHING by LJ is crap but you get what I'm saying). KUDOS to Lemon Jelly for taking a risk and creating something completely different and still being able to infuse their usual style. HOORAY for this new album. BOO to it's nay-sayers.

PS the DVD (sold seperately) is a lot of fun too.

With '64-'95, awesome duo Fred Deakin and Nick Franglen take musical samples from that year span and mold them into 9, truly wonderful tunes drenched in rock, soul, folk, electronica and house music. To the nay-sayers, this album is just a continuation of "Lost Horizons" and should be accepted as a work of pure genius. Not everyone can do such an outstanding job of mixing and shuffling as these guys do. You try mixing William Shatner into a song and make him sound good!

That notwithstadning, every song on '64-'95 was well produced and has a better dance-floor appeal than anything on "Lost Horizons" or "KY." Love how they mixed the chords and vocals of Ralph Tresvant's "Sensitivity" (1990) into the groovin', "A Man Like Me." I also dig the warmth and summery feel of "Make Things Right" which reminds me of an Arrested Development tune, and the hyper-drive of "Come Down on Me" and "The Slow Train".

Deakan and Franglen certainly know there stuff and they know how to keep their sound interesting without veering too far off the beaten path. To me, this body of work surpasses any of their past material, or any material by folks of their ilk--Yeah, That's right, you nay-sayers! I said it!!

Fantastic Job, Lemon Jelly! Highly Recommended!!!!

When I saw that Lemon Jelly had a new album out, I freaked. Lost Horizons, their last effort, very quickly earned a spot on my all-time top-10 list, and I raced to get the new, undoubtedly brilliant release. But alas, I have similar feelings as many of the reviewers here. I agree that those like me who really enjoyed Lost Horizons will not enjoy this nearly as much. It's, well, very different. My impression of '64-'95 is that it was created for a more mainstream audience, what with the harder edge in a couple tunes and the R&B stylings in others. I'll give Lemon Jelly the benefit of the doubt and not call this a complete sell-out, but it's as if they felt embarrassed by the sensitivity of their last album compared to the acts out there who are more popular because they're more hard-hitting.

I really enjoyed Lost Horizons for its subtle and restrained compositions, the way most if not all of the tracks would mesmerize with their repetition, but would creep up on you and surprise you in various ingenious ways. It just seemed a lot more rigorous, careful, and artfully musical than this new one.

There are some good moments on '64-'95, but not enough, not as many as I've come to expect, which after many optimistic listens, makes this album disappointing. I sincerely hope this was just an awkward moment for these guys and that their next album will bring them back from craft to art.

Several months later...

I've tried a few times to listen to this album again, even to find a decent track on it for a compilation, and it's useless. That pretty much sums up the album for me: Useless. Dammit, I wanted to like this album as much as I liked Lost Horizons, if not in the same way, then in a different way! Were KY and, especially, Lost Horizons flukes?

although this cd may be a slight departure from there 1st two cds ,

its an amazing journey, as usual these guys are masters at production,

and this production is immaculate and brilliant,sharp and clean.

as mentioned previously ,they need to come up with an sacd 5.1

surround sound format,which would just be out of this world.

After the feel good explosion of "KY", and the sublime consistency of "Lost Horizons", I suppose that a bit a let-down was to be expected.

Anyone who explored Lemon Jelly's first release - KY - had to notice the picture of the little white-robed yogi embedded in one of the psychedlic teardrops on the CD packaging. I actually noticed the image after having listened to the CD a few times. The image reveals a motivating force which seems lacking in LJ's latest release: '64-'95.

Lemon Jelly, at its best, is nothing if not meditative. Despite the catchy hooks and bouncy beats, songs like "In the Bath" (from KY), or "Ramblin' Man" (from Horizons), inspire zen-like calmness. From this peaceful perspective, the complicated rhythms, layered melodies, and hypnotic samples inspire blissful awe... sort of like being in the presence of the Yogi.

'64-'95 brings some of those vibes into play. "Time", "Don't Stop Now", and "Slow Train" deliver the goods, and are emblematic of Lemon Jelly's better work.

The other tracks, though, especially "Make Things Right" and "Stay with You" (which sound like lame disco remixes) are uninspired and flat. "Come Down on Me" and the "Shouty Song" are moronic Gary Glitter atrocities - are these guys hoping to hear their music played between timeouts at football games? Geez. Noisy, overdone, sort of thuggish. Where's the LOVE, fellaz?

The last track, featuring vocals by William Shatner, rounds out the cheese. Putting that guy's voice on ANY music CD is a sure sign of desperation. And, sure enough, "Go" is a pale retread of "Ramblin' Man" (off 'Lost Horizons'). Genre mixing - and coming up with something original - is one thing. Genre mixing for the sake of it is a sure sign of creative exhaustion.

These guys need to go back to the well and find their center. Something sent them careening into questionable places and the musical results are marginal and depressingly derivative.
