Angels in the Flesh and Devils in the Bone

by Floater

In the two-and-a-half years following Glyph, Floater's swelling fanbase was demanding new material, and Floater delivered with an incredibly immense and ambitious work. Their trademark blend of heavy primal rhythms, bruising riffs, and hypnotic vocals

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Following their move to Portland, Oregon, Floater released their third full-length record, "Angels in the Flesh and Devils in the Bone." Returning to their strength for creating concept albums, "Angel's" brought a new vibe to Floater. It wasn't long before widespread audiences came to embrace what has now become the band's trademark - their versatility.
Working with Bill Barnett at Gung Ho Studios (Tori Amos, Cherry Poppin' Daddies) and Drew Canulette (Soundgarden, Nirvana, Mudhoney), Floater takes a more "rock opera" approach with this album and comes out with a powerful blend of music and lyrics.

A True Masterpiece
Floater has captured the hearts of Oregonians everywhere. Their fluid and sometimes surreal sound blends such lyrical gems such as \"Medicine Woman\" and \"American Theatric\" into memorable pieces. I had originally heard of them in High School and since then I\'ve fallen in love with each and every one of their albums. I hope they remain on top for a long time to come.

Another soul adjustment from Floater, one of the Northwest's most popular, reputable bands, both highly respected by critics and amateurs. With a constantly-evolving palette of harmonies and drive, painting emotion and conviction in their notable way, Floater reaches more towards the subtle and the brooding in this album, turning its attention to the shadows cast by their earlier works, thus opening up to the full spectrum of their musical expression. However, this is not just a complementary album, but a cultivated pinnacle of muse on its own terms.

This is a GREAT CD!
Floater is a band with a musical style that's difficult to classify. I have seen them described as "post-grunge," but that is very misleading. They sound much less "mainstream" than bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, etc. If their musical style must be classified at all, it is "progressive metal" similar to Uriah Heep. Their music is extremely "heavy" sounding, as this record shows. This is a GREAT CD filled with MORE Floater for anyone who hasn't seen them live.

This one gets under your skin...
The story behind the music is one I'll probably have to piece together in time, but in the meantime......this disc just gets into your blood and doesn't let go until you listen to it. REPEATEDLY. There's also parts of Angels that remind me of Pink Floyd's The Wall as well. Good rocking tunes, good groovy tunes....what can I say? This CD is frickon FLOATERIFFIC! 8D

Floater's compositional evolotution is wickedly apparent
Strong poetics interwoven with sensitive musical structure. I'm vastly proud of this band. I've been seeing them in concert since I was in middle school (ten years ago?) and they've only mutated and twisted into something more intriguing along the way. "Angels in the Flesh..." is akin to an album like Sink, their first major debut, in that it tells a story, like a single song, spliced together with movie quotes, apropos sound FX, and soul. Well worth the money to people who like their rock to not only roll, but to also slither, cast shadows, and grab you by the throat and howl at you to come alive. Moody, dark, and human, with shining moments of levity. I'd say the lyrics are borderline transcendental. Memorable bass grooves and dynamic drumming and lead guitar. I urge people to support this Oregon band. They've made the choice to stay local and not sell out to the major labels.

Style and Sincerity
Floater's music could appeal to a large audience, but it still isn't for everybody. It's thoughtful without being wordy or nerdy. It's heavy and hard, but not in-your-face, at all.

"Angels" is the kind of album that could define the word "album". It explores different moods while maintaining a consistent style and sincerity. Meanwhile, the lyrics tell not-so-obvious stories that you have to listen to the music to understand.

The album starts with the beautiful acoustic guitars of "Endless 1", then sort of alternates heavy ("American Theatric") with light ("Medicine Woman").

Tracks that stand out, in my opinion: American Theatric, Medicine Woman, The Last Time, Endless 1 and 2, Mexican Bus, Minister, The Feast.
