I wasn't too sure about buying a product that said 'as good as new' in the description, but thought I'd give it a go anyway. It was as good as new, no damage or marks on either the CD or case and a pretty quick delivery considering it came from overseas.
And it's soooo much better having the music on CD rather than the old cassette I had my original copy on :) Classic!

Tripping Daisy is a small relativley unknown band in the UK and yet thiere music polishes up to perfection. Catchy songs with meaningful lyrics and Tim De Laughter's unique vocal stylings make this a must-have album. It combines the most relaxing styles of rock with the coolest guitar noises.

Great Powerpop 31 Oct 1999
By Andrew Bromley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of my all time favourite albums. From the powerpop opener of Rocketpop, to the moving delicate Same Dress New Day this album has it all. Great guitar work from the late Wes Bergren. Wonderful lyrics and a deliciously quirky singing voice from Tim. Held together with great bass lines from Mark, and excellent drumming from former drummer Bryan. This album is a progression from Bill, with the band sounding much more mature. A great album, buy it NOW

One of the best 24 Jan 2005
By Buzz Bradley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album sits right in the middle of my top ten albums of all time. Musically, the guitar playing, drumming, and vocals are all top notch and give you plenty to aspire towards. While at times some of the guitar lines are nothing technically amazing, they are creative and fit perfectly with the song. The drumming is the gem on this album and I love every minute of it. The vocals are uniquely Tripping Daisy's own and make this band stand out from the crowd.

Part pop, part hard rock, and mostly a perfect blend of the two, this album provides you with enough types of sound to keep you interested, but keeps them woven together so that it does not sound out of place.

"I Got a Girl" is of course the "hit" from the album, and by all means is the only reason I heard of this band in the first place. But I must say, "I Got a Girl" is the worst song on the album even though it has its moments instrumentally speaking. My favorites are "Motivation" - much quiter than most songs on the album but just beautiful in every way, "Step Behind" - very fun catchy song, but unique in its structure/arrangment, "Prick" - long prog rock style song with sick guitar riffs and some of the most amazing drumming on the album, and "High" - a nice peaceful song with some beautiful guitar lines which I have been told, although cannot confirm, was not originally a song to be on the album, but just a bit of a jam in the studio that was caught on tape, who knows (the lyrics to this song are the only ones missing in the album notes)?

That being said, every song is worth listening to and I have played this album start to finish in entirety hundreds of times. Other Tripping Daisy albums are good and worth listening to, but none of them capture the mix of hard rock, pop, and psychedelic sounds like this one does.

It's not just one song 20 Feb 2000
By J. Rossi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Yes this album has "I got a girl" on it, Tripping Daisy's minor left field, alternative radio pop smash. Reviews prior to this one seem intent on degrading this album because of the 'cutesiness' of the band name and song titles. Clearly these people have no clue.

Tripping Daisy isn't supposed to elicit playful boy/girl images. One listen to this or any of their albums will reveal their intent: to play the most twisted amalgam of pop music this side of the moon.

"Rocketpop" isn't about playing with H.R. Puffnstuff, it's about halluncinogeninc dimentia and the soundtrack to the perfect trip. "Trip Along," "Same Dress, New Day," and "Noose" are the real gems on the CD. The man who said he listened to this album thoroughly and still didn't like it probably went crazy from the head rush that this music supplies. A band and album criminally neglected.

better than I was expecting. 29 Dec 2002
By Mike K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I picked this one up used, because it was incredibly cheap, and I remembered enjoying the singles "I Got A Girl" and "Piranhas" when they first came out. While "I Got A Girl" later began to grate on me in all it's protypical alt-rock novelty-ness as it got played on the radio more, "Piranhas" intrigued me enough to give it a shot. The album as a whole owes more than a little to Janes Addiction stylistically (perhaps with a hint of indie rock thrown in), but the band packs in enough hooks and clever musical ideas to still come off as fairly original. In the context of the smarter sounding material on the album, "I Got A Girl" sounds less like an annoying novelty hit and more like a satire of annoying novelty hits that somehow became a hit itself. I heard somewhere the band wrote it when the record company claimed to not hear a single, so that could well have been the intent. Anyway, while this doesn't qualify as a classic, it's a creative and solid album that's kind of unfairly destined to 90's one-hit-wonder cut-out bin status.

their best album 25 July 2004
By alex of the colon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
if your new to tripping daisy, then this is the album you should probably start with, its the most common of all the tripping daisy albums, you can probably find it at most used cd stores, and it is the most popular. don't let the popularity of the single "I Got a Girl" make you think the rest of the album is just like it. each of the songs have their own character and feel to them. it mixes their early hardcore rock from Bill, with their latter psychedelic rock from Jesus Hits Like the Atom Bomb, making it their best album, and the one that defines who tripping daisy really is. my personal favorite is "Motivation", a song i think is genius, as well as the song "Piranha", which is the ultimate tripping daisy song, that adds all of the their styles into one really good and catchy song. I am an Elastic Firecracker is an album you should defintley look into, if not buy, and start your way into the realm of tripping daisy
