Lemonheads: Come On Feel The Lemonheads

David Cavanagh, Select, November 1993

BEHOLD, THE SWEET TROLLEY ARRIVETH. The only problem about loving the Lemonheads is that there hasn't been enough new stuff over the last 18 months. It's A Shame About Ray takes 29 minutes and 24 seconds to listen to in its entirety, so anyone planning to overdose on it would be laughed out of casualty. Which is why your first reaction on hearing Come On Feel The Lemonheads (a 15-tracker) ought to be, wow, it's a lot more substantial. This is not just a trick of the numbers: Dando's actually out-written It's A Shame About Ray and delivered a great one.
