1 stars From the cover, instrumentation, and most reviews, one might think this is a trippy pastoral flashback with some heavy rock moments, but my attempts to connect with "Thirteen Tolls at Noon" have convinced me that this is a hard rock album, with a few gentle sequences. None of that passes judgement in and of itself, except that Floating State does not seem capable of connecting the dots, and that really does matter.

The words composition and transition do not seem to be in this band's vocabulary. This is especially important when the bulk of the album consists of a 22 minute and a 44 minute song, which come across more like musical exercises than anything approaching a logical unit of work. Even dividing them up into smaller pieces would have been an improvement, since taken on their own they sometimes make sense.

I cannot recommend this unless you enjoy that sinking feeling.
