Lost Horizons is the second album release (and the first studio album recorded and released as such, since the previous album was a compilation of their debut EPs) from Lemon Jelly, released in October 2002. The album produced two charting singles in the UK, "Space Walk" and "Nice Weather for Ducks". It was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2003. The album has more organic instrumentation than its predecessor, hence the addition of session musicians.

Like Lemonjelly. KY, several tracks have been used as incidental and ident music by the BBC. Part of the track, "Curse of Ka'Zar", was used by the Turner Classic Movies channel as background music to a promo for their Thirty Days of Oscar month.

The track, "Space Walk", is set to a recording of Ed White's 1965 space walk on the Gemini 4 mission.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }}</ref>

The track, "Nice Weather for Ducks", is based on the popular Dutch children's song, "Alle eendjes zwemmen in het water" (translated: All the ducks are swimming in the water).

The track "Ramblin' Man" features a conversation between an interviewer (the voice of Michael Deakin—father of Lemon Jelly's Fred Deakin) and "John the Ramblin' Man" (the voice of actor John Standing),<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> during which he lists 67 places around the world. When listed in the order in which the locations are narrated, the message "BAGPUSS SEES ALL THINGS" is spelled out midway through the song (from Brixton at four minutes ten seconds, to San José at four minutes 31 seconds) using the first letter of each location.
