CRITIC REVIEWS

No Ripcord

Enthusiastic and strange, a perfect good-time balance of the artfully absurd and the sonically robust.

Paste

This record marks a maturity milestone for the band. They played tight and cohesively on Putrifiers II. They were good. But with Coffin they are damn good.

80
Pitchfork

Although Floating Coffin does quite well with its searing powerhouses, the quieter moments add a much-needed sonic diversity.

NME

There are plenty of familiar garage-y thrills to be found here, but a new sense of menace too.

Tiny Mix Tapes

It’s somewhat surprising as to how well of a grip Thee Oh Sees have here, and although prolificacy may warrant missteps, this doesn’t seem to be the case with this band.

AllMusic

Floating Coffin will stand as a successful foray into the world of straight-ahead, heavy-rocking, non-weird alternative indie rock.

Consequence of Sound

Thee Oh Sees are incapable of recording an unlikeable album, and Floating Coffin’s warmed garage slashers will satisfy a noise-addled listener.

PopMatters

These songs take big bites, bites that take some chewing – for player and listener – to get through them, to find the good stuff in them we need.

Floating Coffin is the type of style and production that I have been wishing from Thee Oh Sees after listening to all of their albums. Like music to my ears, I’m so glad they finally found the style and god damn does this album hit all the right notes.

I'm kind of mixed on this recent revival of psychedelic garage rock. A lot of it just seems like really mediocre background music for weird stoners who eat Funyuns and wear these (https://cdn11.bigcommerce.com/s-ir45ne2d76/images/stencil/1024x1024/attribute_rule_images/3894_source_1583190717.jpg ), but it's yielded some good bands and artists--I think King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard have released some good stuff over the years, and I do enjoy Ty Segall's music too--yet so much of it is ... read more

Floating Coffin is a rolling, tumbling jungle of an album. The twists and turns are somewhat predictable, but interesting and cool nonetheless. This is a smart collection of jams, with thick melodies and instrumentation that begs to be explored more than once. It isn't groundbreaking, but it is very good.
