Tripping Daisy's eponymous final album was recorded prior to the death of guitarist Wes Berggren. On it they continue to experiment with their style of Beatlesque grunge. The most definitive and memorable of these is songs is "Tragiverse," a sweeping tune that fades in and out from a slow quiet melody to a fast-paced psychedelic free for all. At times the album falters, especially on "Kids Are Calling" when the band plays a more edgier '90s rock sound and has harmony vocals that come across as rather annoying instead of adding depth. Still the album serves as a rather fitting swan song for the group.
