Album Review

Tripping Daisy's debut is an eminently likable, if not exceptional collection of buoyant, early-'90s alt-pop. Sometimes the band sounds like Jane's Addiction's prankish little brother (due in large part to the heavily processed vocals of Tim DeLaughter), and admittedly, this is pretty lightweight stuff, but that's part of the fun. A little production polish — and a bit more vocal layering — would have made the tunes more dynamic and interesting, but tracks like "Change of Mind" and "My Umbrella" still more or less get their point across with skittering power chord progressions and occasional psychedelia. Not a landmark record, but not a bad one, either — a pleasant souvenir of its time.

Customer Reviews

Could be the best Album out of Dallas in the 90s

I managed several night clubs where Tripping Daisy Played in the mid 90's and this might very well be the best album to come out of the local music scene during this time.

Good Place to Start

Before The Polyphonic Spree there was Tripping Daisy. While Tripping Daisy never narrated a VW commericial, their grunge psychedelic acid rock sound will blow you away. Don't fooled by the 90's pop undertones, Tripping Daisy has a lot to offer. "Bill" is a good place to start with Tripping Daisy but don't stop here. The progression of this band from start to finish is amazing. Classic cosmic rock that will play with your brain and leave you with a smile. Check 'em out.

Welcome to Tripping Daisy 101, the beginning

If you have gotten this far to read this review then your on the right track. This album by Tripping Daisy is perhaps some of the greatest music to spawn from Dallas, Tx. to date. I'm fortunate I was able to grow up and hear the bands melodies from beginning to end. Tripping Daisy gave us young Dallas rejects the ability to enjoy our rock and play with it too. Start with this album and I can assure that you too will venture beyond itunes to hear all that this band had/has to offer. Good Luck
