This is one of the best indie CDs you can own! Has a great Kinks-ish sound.

Lilys are searching for a genre here

"The Lilys burst onto the indie music scene in the early 1990s as classic shoegazers hiding behind walls of guitar chords and muddled lyrics.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."
You won't go wrong here

"Consistent with the other reviews, I believe this is one of the best albums in my collection. The songs are catchy--a lot of nice hooks and melodius vocals--but complicated, giving them a long shelf life. I wouldn't say, however, that it is straight out of the 60s, but more a postmodern mix of 60s psychadelia with 90s math/prog rock. Very few bands in the 60s could write songs with such maturity."
