A self contained group [4 guys and 1 girl] common to this period. Though at times very loud and vocally histrionic the album flows as an uninterrupted suite. Everyone contributes, and as these things go Floating Opera isn't a bad record. They do a nice job with the ballads, and the album is cleanly produced. Fans of this style group/music will almost certainly like Floating Opera. The album is packaged in a nice looking gatefold cover with the lyrics inside, and the group's picture on the front.
