Judy Sucks a Lemon for Breakfast

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Given Cornershop's extended seven-year layoff, it's not unreasonable to expect Judy Sucks a Lemon for Breakfast -- the group's first album since 2002's Handcream for a Generation -- to be somewhat of a reinvention for a group that specialized in ever-shifting change in the '90s.

By now, Cornershop's blend of '60s pop, '70s rock, and '90s multi-culturism feels as retro as their inspirations, but that's only because the world has moved on to other fashions while the band has not. Instead of redefining their world, they're happy to cultivate their own little garden, and when the fruit is as pleasing at this, it makes sense.
