ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Here’s are descriptions of our music from reviews:

The Musician's Homepage: ...a tapestry of sounds woven from any variety of piano, percussion, electric and acoustic bass, electric and acoustic guitar, keyboards, saxophone, trumpet, violin, and cello. Floating Opera falls into that oft-elusive category known as "smart pop". You have the catchy hooks and grand choruses you'd expect of a pop song, but you don't have to check your brain at the door while listening. There's a level of sophistication to the songwriting that makes it a pleasure to pick out the strands that make up each piece of music. It's not surprising that the list of artists contributing to this project reads like a who's who of Midwestern indie rock - this is a top notch CD and one worth giving a listen.

The Daily Vault: The album will likely contain the most lush and musically gorgeous textures you will hear this year. [It] contains enough rocking moments to make it an ideal soundtrack for a late summer drive. The percussion and crunching guitar work produce enough of a thunder to rattle your speakers. The band's ability to effortlessly fuse different styles together without sounding like a novelty. The pop melodies are as irresistible and catchy as some of the poppiest tracks on radio.

Aiding and Abetting: It's... exceptionally complex and enthralling. He manages to whip up a glorious order from the mess of voices and instruments that populate each song. Floating Opera creates music that is impossible to forget. I've been listening to these folks since 1997, and every person I've turned on to the band has fallen in love.

Smother.net: ... complex song arrangements, wonderful melodies that soar in and out of range, and a knack for just offshoot catchiness. The vocals alone could easily make this a favorite but it doesn`t end there, instead excelling in production, engineering, and arrangements... Amazing.
