...the soundtrack to a very eerie Broadway musical....most of
the songs, even the ones with a facade of normalcy, are tinged with
that sweet, cloying smell of the monster lurking under your bed
(or in it, as the case may be)...Highly recommended.
Omaha World Herald: ...a stellar
collection of acoustic rock, piano-driven ballads, symphoniclike
pop tunes and more...What a great thing Floating Opera is.
...vocals, sometimes direct and unadorned, and other times wailing
and warbly, waft over detailed timbral backdrops.
Omaha Reader: The follow-up
to Floating Opera's 1993 self-titled debut, Everybody's Somebody's
Monster is every bit as rich and rewarding... a mosaic of moods
and stories that's the perfect escape from a horrible day.
vocalist Lori Allison has a great voice and her performances are
very well presented midst a harmony of excellent instrumentation
and eclectic musical arrangements...A fun release, a pleasure to
Lincoln Sunday Journal
-Star: The Floating
Opera has produced two of the best recordings to come out of Lincoln
in the '90s...a brilliant collection of lush, carefully arranged,
superbly played inviting songs anchored by the entrancing vocals
of Allison and Ore...the music is deeply woven, creating a variety
of setting from driving, rock-based sounds to drifting folk-tinged
pop... the lyrics add a spooky, unsettling element as they spin
their dark, literate stories.
...spectacular singing, from quiet to soaring...a great piece of
work from a bunch of truly talented people. Grade: A-
Omaha Reader: ...brilliant
release...a somber joyride of intricate melodies and ideas beautifully
