(5 out of 5 stars)

"Here is an example of a brilliant band, with excellent songs, and superb arrangements, strangled by the ineptitude of their own record company.With masterpieces like "Bedspring Kiss", how could this not sell?Probably because the public is as dumb as the record company......"
41/2 stars for Jellyfish debut

"Clearly the music industry (and many listeners) were staring at or picking lint from their collective bellybuttons rather than listening to it. It's a pity as this Bay Area band made two amazing albums and then, just as quickly as they'd appeared, vanished from the scene. This import edition of their terrific debut features a handful of live performances after the album proper finishes.Frequently pegged as a retro band, Jellyfish was anything but that. Sturmer and Manning's songwriting was fresh and inspired. Yes, they were influenced by The Beatles, Queen and 10cc but it's not just the inspiration but the persperation that makes a band great. The band's harmonies were rock solid and their melodic songs intelligent and witty. If you enjoy Xtc, Squeeze, The Beatles,Supertramp, 10cc or Queen, you'll likely like this short lived but much admired band.If you enjoyed Bellybutton and Spilt Milk (the band's second and, arguably, best album), then you'll also likely enjoy the boxed set Fan Club which features the demos for the band's first two albums plus demos of unreleased material, live and studio performances from 1989 to 1994. All the live cuts included here are on Fan Club making this a reduntant purchase if you already have Bellybutton."
