Synopsis

Amazon.com
Sugar Ray rose to semi-stardom in 1995 with a good-time rap metal album that featured goofball titles like "Scuzzboots" and "Danzig Needs a Hug." Apparently, fearing the label "comedy band," Sugar Ray struck back with Floored, which is more visceral and musically mature than their debut Lemonade and Brownies. The band still shows the influence of rap metal, but adds other tricks to its repertoire, including grunge, punk, power-pop, and even dancehall reggae. In addition, Sugar Ray have learned to write craftier, more memorable tunes that stand on their own even when the group resorts to impish, juvenile wordplay. --Jon Wiederhorn

the biggest significance of this album (and this band) is how it serves to help people distinguish other people who have no or bad taste from those that do. they'll going back to thr trough every they hear steamin' piles o turds like this somewhere. like old man potter said in 'its a wonderful life' said "well, the world needs ditch diggas." we can't all be chiefs. pee-you!

Ryan's Review

(2 out of 5 stars)

"This rap/rock band with a dash of punk may not be worth getting. They got exposier from the hit single "Fly" (That crashed and burned because of radio stations over playing it) that landed them on top. But they are nothing like "Fly" they are a metal band. Their music is good but all will agree that beginings of the songs and lyrics are crappy,and make no sense. BOTTOM LINE- Pointless cursing (cash) and bad songs make this album almost not worth getting. Listen well and think hard before spending your money. Best song(Breathe)"
5 Stars for "Fly", -4 Stars for the rest!

"Avoid this album like the plague; get the new SR CD "14:59" - it is much more listenable. This album is terrible and devoid of any rhythm or songwriting skills. It's like having your head hit with a hammer for 40 minutes (but not in time). However, "Fly" IS one of the greatest singles of the '90s; selling this CD on the strength of that song is one of the greatest hoaxes perpetrated on the public since Bigfoot and the Kennedy assassination. You have been warned! (BTW, I got a parking ticket while spending 3 minutes running into the record store to buy this CD which means I paid $45 for "Fly".)"
