It seems Floor started gathering attention after one of their members started Torche, the critical darlings of stoner/sludge/doom metal. I’m not much of a fan of Torche but I thought I might give this album a try. I can’t really say how it stacks up against Torche. It is slightly sludge-ish with stoner vibes to it but there’s also a lot of post rock and even some post punk/emo/pop punk tendencies to it. Parts of it even reminded my of Weezer. That could just be me though. It also reminds me of some of the later day Baroness stuff, before they dropped the heavy side of their sounds. Regardless, this album isn’t really my cup of tea. There’s some interesting parts and some good songs but overall I just couldn’t get into it. The short run time helped.
