Awesome Diversity

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Hmmm, floater...i just went to their concert on Saturday actually.....anyway....Floater has this amazing ability to remind me of times of my life, of feelings, of possibliities. This is the most diverse of their 3 albums, i think. It has more acoustic than the other two albums. It is perfect for car trips and staring at passing forests, it is perfect for full moon nights with no one else at home. It is perfect in it's music in a way that can almost only be acheived in poetry...it leaves you bare and alone but you can understand and see the rest of the world.....Floater is the closest i ever get to "metal", and in actuality it is fairly hard to categorise them as such. In many an instance i have tried to play them to "metalheads" and they don't like it, or they compare it to Pink Floyd (this is like sacrilege, okay...) or something or other. In truth, Floater is incomparable to anything else. It stands alone. I must also add, that if listened to in natural succesion, the songs on this album form a feeling of a story that is lost if played on "random"....so sit back....."
What a great CD

"Floater's third album "Angels in the Flesh and Devils in the Bone" is a definitive change for the band. Almost completely abandoning their heavy crunching guitars for a strong conceptual piece strife with melody, Floater changed the way we see them forever. Though not as widely accepted as their previous album "Glyph," "Angels" is the superior album, hands down. A bold move for a band that had become synonymous with mosh pits and Metal riffs, "Angels" takes a deep trip into the uncanny song writing ability of Wynia and Co.The lead track "Endless I" starts everything off on a different foot for Floater. A slow melodic piece that spans a whopping 2:27 showcases lead singer Robert Wynia's ability to completely carry a song with feeling, phrasing and lyrical strength. Along for the ride on "Endless I" is guitarist Dave Amador whimsically scattering a behind the scenes blend of psychedelic electric guitar and acoustic mastery. And that was only 2:27 worth of brilliance that is "Angels in the Flesh and Devils in the Bone." This album is one that must be discovered by every music fan on Earth."
