Melody of Certain Damaged Lemons is the fifth studio album by American alternative rock band Blonde Redhead. The album was released in June 2000 through Touch and Go Records. It was produced by Guy Picciotto and Ryan Hadlock. A distinctively dark, insinuating aesthetic of measured instrumentation and abstract lyrics. Rather than sinking all its resources in squalls of feedback and distortion, the band diversifies its portfolio by adding canny production tricks and keyboard noodling to its impressive resumé of guitar innovations. There’s a predominantly love-song sound streaming though and through. There are honest-to-god numbers that color themselves well within the bounds of traditional pop standards, making it actually an easy listen

Blonde Redhead finally emerges from the shadows of Sonic Youth’s post-punk legacy by avoiding the expected detunings, distortions, and shrillness of the genre. The three-piece manages to create a record that is subtle, tuneful, and sublime. while Melody of Certain Damaged Lemons won’t exactly silence such suggestions, it does seem to move conscientiously away from the influences that have marred the group’s previous work.
