Good till the end

"Even when they sample the faraway reports of American astronauts or a Russian choir there is something in the flavour of Lemon Jelly (Nick Franglen and Fred Deakin) that is quirkily English. Here, as some boffin belts out on Lost Horizons, their second album, "All the ducks are swimming in the water, faldaralderaldo, faldaralderaldo." If this album were an armchair, it would be orange and inflatable. There is nothing exceptional about Lemon Jelly's folky electronica; it doesn't so much push boundaries as graze happily inside them. But it does so beautifully, with a loopy glee that will get you in the end"
