Cell-Scape is the fifth album by Melt-Banana. It is mostly notable for featuring electronic elements and marking a shift to a more accessible, hi-fi sound.

Cell-Scape also features some of the longest songs written by Melt-Banana with "Shield for Your Eyes" just barely goes on for 4 minutes which only a few more Melt-Banana songs have. This album is also even more accessible than the previous Teeny Shiny album. The ninth song has Yasuko singing with her "real" voice in the chorus. The last track on the album is an odd one in Melt-Banana's long list of songs, a 10 minute long ambient entirely electronic soundscape.

The song "Chain-Shot to Have Some Fun" was featured in an animated short movie called "Emily and the Baba Yaga".

There was no drummer present on the recording of this album and all the drums were programmed in with a drum machine. Some of the patterns, however, were inspired by Dave Witte's drumming.
