The psychedelic graphics of Jellyfish's 1989 debut BELLYBUTTON have little to do with the straightforward power-pop of its contents, but both were dumped for the band's second and final album. SPILT MILK is still a power-pop album, but the Badfinger/Big Star elements are downplayed in favor of big, glammy Queen-like choruses and multilayered Electric Light Orchestra-styled production. The anthemic single "The Ghost At Number One" is the epitome of this new '70s-influenced style, with the album's other single, "New Mistake," nearly as winning. With original guitarist Jason Falkner replaced by Jon Brion (later a noted producer; interestingly, Falkner and Brion formed the Grays after Jellyfish's breakup), the guitars have a more textured, processed sound that fits in well with Roger Manning's Technicolor keyboards and the spirited harmonies of Manning and drummer Andy Sturmer. SPILT MILK is one of the better power-pop albums of the '90s.
Entertainment Weekly (2/19/93, p.62) - "...like an air guitarist's dream come true...[a] fine new Jellyfish album..." - Rating: A
Q (6/93, p.99) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Jellyfish have disappeared so far into '70s pop culture that they've come out the other side...an unholy blend of strings, harmonies and sudden musical flourishes frighteningly reminiscent of Queen, ELO and even XTC...Jellyfish may be funny but they're well beyond a joke..."
Melody Maker (5/22/93, p.29) - "...Andy Sturmer's voice is just so damned good..."
(6/93, p.54) - Fair - "...aural cotton candy, sugar-coated pop..."
NME (Magazine) (5/15/93, p.34) - (8) "...[SPILT MILK] is a record of intricate surrealism that transcends its ephemera to thrill on its own..."
