AllMusic Review by

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.
