5.0 out of 5 stars the greatest superhero musicians return, 8 Aug 2002
This review is from: Vs the Floating Eye of Death (Audio CD)
In the 'bats third release "Floating Eye Of Death", the familiar ska sounds so prominent in their two previous album are subsituted a bit for a more Electronic feel, but the album does definatly not suffer from this.
Kicking off with "Sequence Erase", we see the new direction of the bands music, with great horn and guitar work being complimented by some electronic sounds. This sound is carried on through most of the album, with some exceptions, "Chemical Bomb" leans toward a more relaxed caribean sound, but the comedy is there. Some of these songs have such good chorus's, which never really leave you feeling bored "Anti-Matter" and "Canis Lupis" are good examples.
It's hard to define the aquabats sound, but I would go for electronically enhanced ska music with a twist, and possibly the most comedic lyrics in music at the moment. The Aquabats are like a breath of fresh air, in the current "emotional" heavy draining pap that seems to be popular, not naming names..... *cough*nickleback*cough*
So if this is your first sight of the aquabats, I recommend pick either this or their newer album "....Other Amazing Aventures" and then go back and pick up their two first albums, "The Fury Of The Aquabats" demonstrates a more pure ska sound, and is essential to ska fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Brilliant, 19 Aug 2010
This review is from: Vs the Floating Eye of Death (Audio CD)
I bought this album 10 years ago when I listened to and punk, ska. These days I'm more into electronic music but this album still does it for me. Bound to cheer you up and put a smile on your face. Great music and the best lyrics I've ever heard :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Weird But I Like It, 30 Oct 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Vs the Floating Eye of Death (Audio CD)
If you aren't open to new musical experiences then forget this album, 'cos everything about it is weird! The lyrics, the vocals, the samples, the instruments, all completely bizarre, but it's because of this that this album is so good. Highlight is "Giant Robot Birdhead", but Tiny Pants and Canis Lupus deserve mentions for being so funny.
