Mood is tempered on the whimsical and gorgeous 'Fruitless Escapade', this has a distinct mid to late 90's Irish indie rock feel, just as we were emerging from an overload of Britpop across the sea, and Irish acts were getting far more experimental. At a very slick guitar solo nudges its way in, a wink and a nod to the listener, before the track auspiciously fades out.
Ears, brain and Crome Yellow themselves all melt into a slow-dripping psychedelic wax on 'Lemons', a hole in the ground slowly grows and we collectively end up slipping into it in slow-motion, the warmth of the music and vocals mean there's no cause for alarm, and that we just really should go with their flow.
Crome Yellow – a classic by Aldous Huxley
It's a key highlight on the album for me, there's an enduring sound here that will never grow old or cold, and I think the lead guitar speaks for itself here. The bastard child of The Beta Band and Camel in full swing.

His patron was Lady Ottoline Morrell and he was known for his society portraits. In the book, there is a character very similar to him: Gombauld, a painter as well. In chapter 3, Huxley describes Gombauld. Denis is jealous of him, since Gombauld seems to be close to Anne.
Denis also wishes he was as good in writing as Gombauld is painting. Gertler was also this kind of painter, he was devoted to his work, and how he was advancing in it. Dora Carrington was a British painter and decorative artist, and was associated with the Bloomsbury Group, though she was not a member. She is known for her adventures, especially the one with Lytton Strachey. She also had affairs with women, and was really troubled by her sexuality. In the book, there is one character that seems to correspond to Carrington: Mary Bracegirdle.
