"I ran into Tipsy right about the same time that I was getting burned out on almost every other kind of music out there: rock and roll was dead, goth was too gloomy, I was too old to convincingly be punk, I tried rave music but it just didn't fit me, folk music was all sounding the same, and international music was hard to come by in my Kentucky hometown. Then, lo and behold, an ex-boyfriend did his one good deed for our whole acquaintance, and recommended this to me. My musical appetite was revived! Tipsy totally defies categorization. Yes, on a crude level, I suppose you could call them electronic, though I think they actually bring all their instruments into the studio and organically recreate the sound of electronic music. Their music veers in such diverse directions, though, that it is at times difficult to tell the music is even modern. If you own a swimming pool, this is music to lay out with and sip fruity green drinks from martini glasses with paper umbrellas. If you are a landlocked city dweller, this music can transport you to a little island called Tipsydonia, where the natives are friendly, the beaches are white, and there's a luau till dawn every night. If you live in the country and feel misunderstood, this CD will either make you feel that someone does understand your slightly wacky view of the world or make you so immensely cheered up that you will no longer care. Am I making my point? Whoever you are, you should buy this music and listen to it while driving, eating, dancing, reading, making love, studying, partying or any other common human activity. Beware, though...listening to this music in your sleep may cause sudden knowledge of the entire Tahitian language and a strange longing for cat-eye sunglasses and pina coladas..."

"This cd is phat! It is absolutely one of the most original & weird albums i've ever heard. The music has a lounge, electronic, spaced-out, trippy, jazzy thing going on. I was so surprised at the depth of this album, i've had it for many years and have listened to it literally hundreds of times. Each track is crafted with such excellence and has such a unique sound that leaves your ear drums bursting for more. The fusion that emerges between all the samples, sound effects, and lounge lizard type beats simply amazes me. You can choose to listen to each piece as a whole or pick out each crazy sample, weird sound, or awesome loop. There is such a definite sound to this whole album, but yet each track has it's own distinct flavor. I really can't recommend this cd enough, it is one of the best and most unique albums i've EVER heard. Oh and i have listened to it while tripping as well and let me tell you, it only gets way better."
Fun, Fun, Fun!

"Wowie Zowie! This is pure sonic bliss! -Add one part lounge, two parts exotica, some sci-fi spy-fi film music influences and those keen 60's electronic sound effects, then kick it into hyperdrive and soar through the galaxy! Sometimes when I'm in a funk and can't seem to get up off the futon, I crawl over to my cd player and somehow manage to find my ever-faithful Tipsy cd and away I go! It's great for drawing, painting, cooking, cleaning or just staring at the end of your shoe with a strong cup of coffee in hand. Anyone who can't get into this is just a washed-up sourpuss. And can someone tell me why great stuff like this isn't being played on the radio? If only I were a dj...I'd show 'em all!"
