  • Unknown Contributor Role: Tom Morgan .
  • The Lemonheads broke through with 1992's excellent IT'S A SHAME ABOUT RAY, when a rattling cover of "Mrs. Robinson," recorded for an anniversary reissue of THE GRADUATE, became a fluke hit single. This 1993 follow-up was overshadowed by reports of leader Evan Dando's drug problems, and the album sounds suitably idiosyncratic.
  • There's a handful of pure-pop gems--"Into Your Arms," "The Great Big No" and the Juliana Hatfield tribute "It's About Time"--that are among Dando's most winsomely catchy tunes. Elsewhere, the album has an uncomfortable, almost Syd Barrett-like level of psychic distress, as on both versions of the bizarre drug anthem "Style" (one featuring barely lucid interjections by fellow drug casualty Rick James), and the unlisted tracks following the morose instrumental "The Jello Fund." Often disturbing, but oddly fascinating.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (11/25/93, p.108) - 3.5 Stars - Good Plus - "...On [COME ON FEEL...] Evan Dando delivers clever wordplay and deep, harmonious vocals...though COME ON FEEL THE LEMONHEADS is [the Lemonheads]' strongest album yet, it confirms that [they] are primarily for fun..."

Entertainment Weekly (10/15/93, p.74) - Rating: B+.

Q (1/94, p.86) - Included in Q's list of `The 50 Best Albums Of 1993' - "...Dando delivers such infectious, wide-eyed, grinning tunefulness that it's hard to resist the urge to hug his music...."

Q (11/93, p.125) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Often loud but never angry...[the songs] combine a nimble melodic touch with punk-inspired propulsion..."

Melody Maker (1/1/94, p.77) - Ranked #18 in Melody Maker's list of the `Albums Of The Year' for 1993 - "...The sound of a man plugged into genius...."

NME (Magazine) (10/9/93, p.35) - (9) - Excellent Plus - "...Evan Dando has actually managed to create the perfect pop album his interviews have been telling us about all year..."

NME (Magazine) (12/25/93, p.66) - Ranked #4 in New Musical Express' list of `The Top 50 LPs Of 1993' - "...the brightest pop record of the year. Dando pillages everyone from Gram Parsons to The Ramones, and comes up with rushing excitement, real pathos and a dopey grin...."
