Orange is the fourth studio album by the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. It was released through Matador Records on October 12, 1994. The Village Voice ranked the album of the top albums of 1994. NME named it the 16th best album of 1994. In 2018, Paste named it the 48th best garage rock album of all time. The single "Bellbottoms" was included in The Pitchfork 500.

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion's wild blues on critical albums like Orange and Now I Got Worry defined the band as belonging in a league of its own. The electronica mold of 1998's Acme album was sophisticatedly different, but the grit found in the band's previous work was nearly absent. The band might have known it as well - a change in direction was due. The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion's eighth record, Plastic Fang, doesn't overlook anything this time, for the album exudes a new power

Jon Spencer and his Blues Explosion weren't quite in the upper echelon of the above artists, but they were sufficiently high profile to appear in Rolling Stone and on 120 Minutes back in those headier mid-nineties. At their peak, JSBX straddled the line between novelty act and early-rock throwback by whitening up the blues behind Spencer's 'Elvis with Tourette's Syndrome' vocals. It was an entertaining gimmick, albeit one with a short shelf life, and it was already starting to fizzle by the time of 1995's Now I Got Worry. So while JSBX hasn't formally announced Plastic Fang as their farewell album, this writer's going to go ahead and pronounce them officially deceased (hopefully tricking them into retiring).
