Anathallo has always been a band of untapped potential. On all of their previous efforts, especially 2002's Sparrows and 2003's Holiday at the Sea, the band has shown flashes of brilliance in their approach to indie rock, made unique through the use of horns and a soft, atmospheric disposition. The closest they've ever come to greatness is "Don't Kid Yourself, You Need a Physician," circa 2003, but the band has yet to ever write anything that great again; it was upbeat, had some excellent sounding percussion, and boasted one of the coolest vocal parts I've ever heard in the bridge. However, for every awesome song they've done, they've had two or three not so great ones, mired by a slow pace, messy arrangements, and awkard moments. The band's new release, Floating World, takes everything about this band and expands it tenfold. The question still remains: What happens when you take something not so great and turn it to eleven? The result is a fourteen-track album that satisfies very little and leaves the listener without two important things: anything to hold on to, and any reason to continue listening to the album.
