Floacism "Live"

by: Floetry

On the strength of 2002's Floetic, Floetry became the Bush of neo-soul -- an English act with most of its commercial success in the States. Though the critical reception was equally warm in both territories, Floetic hit the Top 20 of the Billboard album chart in the U.S., while it didn't perform nearly as well in the U.K. With the two-disc Floacism "Live", Floetry give their U.S. fans a gift of sorts, with a performance -- recorded at New Orleans' House of Blues -- that is provided in both CD and DVD format. The show has a lot of energy, but it's best experienced visually, although the live arrangements are competent enough. Discerning fans will be satiated somewhat by the three new studio recordings that open the set, including a fiery "Microphone Fiend"- sampling tune that features Mos Def. ~ Andy Kellman
