As the decade rolled on, the Lilys traded their keds in for paisley shirts as they went in the direction of mid-60s psych/mod/pop, fashioning their tunes (at least on this record) right out of the Beatles' Rubber Soul days ("Cambridge California"), a 1967 Kinks single ("Who Is Moving"), or modern-day Elephant 6 band (Hear the Apples In Stereo in the CD's title track).
Unfortunately, someone forgot to tell the band that they no longer have to hide their vocals and blur (pun intended here) all the catchy guitar riffs that are part of cool 60s-esque pop into another shoegazer anthem.
Better production would have made this disc a stellar record with no weak songs. Still, the positives far outweight the negatives, and I play this disc quite a bit.

This is truly a great cd. There is not a weak track on the entire album. If you want a perfect example of great Lilys (or great music), this is the album. You won't regret it.Published on January 29, 2000 by Ray
