Album Notes
Floater's second release "Glyph" comes out swinging with a more eclectic and confident sound. With such tracks as "Cinema", "The Sad Ballad of Danny Boy", and "All The Stories But One", Floater shows the ever growing diversity of their unique sound.

Working again with Drew Canulette (Soundgarden, Nirvana, Mudhoney) the album has a very polished and full sound. The single "Danny Boy" received heavy college and commercial radio play, in many cities outselling major label releases.

Floater received nominations to the preliminary level of the Grammy's from NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences) for Best Alternative Performance for "Glyph" in 1996.

Hell Ya!!
I am not from the North West and have lived all over the country(Austin, Boston,N.Y., L.A.). I heard the hype about Floater and had to see them. They are one of the best bands I have ever heard live!! Their music does not just have a hook, but a groove that actually move your soul. I love all their cds, but Glyph and Stone by Stone are must haves for everyone know matter what your favorie music is!!!!


good for all occasions
I like this cd, it has a song for every mood.

Floater- Awesome
I purchased Glyph, Sink, and Burning Sosobra. Buy everything you can by these guys before they get snatched by a major label. I've seen them twice in the last year, and they reproduce everything live that you hear on these cd's

something for every mood
i love all floater, but this one i can put on in any mood and it will fulfill any musical craving i have


OMG....such an ambience to this CD...
This is a good chill-out disc, but it has some rockers on there as well. I'm very new to the Floater world, but so far I love what I hear. GET THIS DISC......you will NOT be sorry!


f*cking awesome!!
great music to rock out to, or for me, to rockclimb to!

Honestly, Floater has never put out a bad CD. This is definately another one of my favorites, but I could say that about all there albums. I definately recommend to anyone who is interested.

Sami Ollas (Helsinki, Finland)

A masterpiece with instantly recognizable and unique style
This album grabbed my attention from the very first seconds and couldn't let go even once before it ended. It's rare to come up with an album that flows as well as this one, especially from a band that doesn't reserve praise from the music press all over the world. To top that, there's a great mix of different kinds of songs, some of which wouldn't sound out of place in a Tool album, and others that could fit on a darker Pink Floyd album. Yet Floater manage to sound completely unique, while combining those dark and psychedelic aspects in their music.

Highly recommended to anyone who doesn't hold music as just something for the background.


floater must have #1
Floater rules, and I could write way too much telling you why. Let's just call it a rare convergenceof the planets, a sonic alchemy of a sort both familiar, yet original. While there's no bad place in the catalog to start listening to Floater, there is something special about Glyph. From the opening ominous drones of The Knowing Dirge to the melodic killing floor Crawl into You, there's not a moment of dead space (not even "Dead"). There's not a formula or pigeon hole to describe it

Mike Smythe, Jr.

The defining Floater experience
Glyph is the CD that really defines the sound of this band. A lot of hard rocking with some truly haunting melodies thrown in for good measure. Timeless Gems like The Sad Ballad of Danny Boy (the only Floater song I know of to get commercial radio play) and Cinema show that Floater are capable of leaving most of the popular rock schlock in the dust when it comes to writing brilliant singles... All the while staying true a style that is always a joy when heard as an entire album. One of my top 3 favorites of all time.
