The Guardian

77:78 are perfectly happy to be straightforward ... and Jellies doesn’t require much excavation to reveal its pleasures.

AllMusic

Jellies is the musical equivalent of a summer read or comfort food; it doesn't demand much of listeners, but it fills them with a warm, satisfied feeling just the same.

The 405

Jellies is a magnificent example of how a déjà-vu doesn't have to be a mere repetition: it constructs instead of occupying, pays tribute instead of mimetising, carries on instead of resurrecting.

'Jellies' is a fun journey, but not one that is likely to require further listens. That being said, the album does have some catchy-as-hell standout tracks. "Compass Pass" is a well-crafted song with bellowing horns and keys while "Pour it Out" and "Papers" work well together, revelling in their subtleties that allow Fletcher and Parkin to truly flex their psychedelia muscles. The chemistry is evident and it is great to see two talented artists having so much fun, ... read more
