AllMusic Review by

If only Tragic Mulatto's sense of humor was as sharp as their taste for eclectic, Chartreuse Toulouse might have been a fascinating record. A psychedelically-tinged journey through shifting tempos and moods, the album is chaotic and dense, mostly given to noise fusion but shifting into acoustic gear now and again. Unfortunately, singer Flatula's lyrics are about as mature as her name; the song titles alone -- "Scabs on Lori's Arm," "Bathroom at Amelia's" -- indicate the level of toilet-humor juvenilia at work here.
