Probably the best production ever.
M. Callazzo
After getting tired of hearing when this would be released, I lost track of GLU until I stumbled upon this in a store a few weeks strictly by accident.
B. Morales
The songs are really great and are finished but there are two major flaws with this album.

This album is actually a collection of songs made 4 years before the album's release as they were slated for a previous album but the rocard label they were on went out of business before the new album was finished. So while GLU's previous album was in 1997 (7 years since this album), song wise, there was only a 2-3 year gap after the previous album.

The songs are really great and are finished but there are two major flaws with this album. The first is splitting hairs (or whinning) but the album only has 10 songs where I always see 12 as a minimum. The second problem, and a very big one at that, is that the recording quality is HORRIBLE. The songs are muddy sounding and are not clear. You can hear that the last track was created well after the other 9 tracks as it is much clearer although not perfect. I was very tempted to give this album 3 stars because of the recording quality is really poor, but the songs are pretty good so I figured 4 was a reasonable score.

Song per song ratings on a 5 star scale...

1. White Noise - 4 stars

2. Tricked - 4 stars

3. 1% (The Long Way Down) - 4 stars

4. Whatever You've Got - 4 stars

5. No Way (You Must Understand - 4 stars

6. Slip to Fall - 5.5 stars (possibly one of my fav GLU tracks)

7. History - 4.5 stars

8. 72 Hours - 3 stars

9. Miss You More Than Anything - 4.5 stars

10. Positivity - 4.25 stars

God Lives Underwater are back! Although, they really aren't. Up Off The Floor serves as a fitting epitaph for one of the more underrated Hard Rock/Industrial bands of the mid to late nineties. I was a big follower and proponent of the band, catching them at 5 shows in my area, as well as getting to play on stage at one of the shows with them. Turzo and Reilly were, in my opinion, masters of melding strong melodic hard rock with intelligent industrial stylings. Their first two CD's, the self titled EP and Empty were strong examples of industrial laced hard rock with accessible pop hooks. 98's release 'Life in the so called Space Age' found GLU focusing more on the electronics as well as garnering them some MTV exposure. While in my opinion, it wasn't their strongest effort, it was a success, and showed the band's breadth of talent. 'Up Off the Floor' feels more like a companion to their first two discs. Going back to the hard rock guitar and drums that were the 'norm' for them. All the songs have a catchy appeal to them, and if this CD were released during the band's 'heyday', it would have been a big success. Unfortunately this CD serves as a reminder of what could have been. Musically, it is one of their best efforts. However, the CD recording quality is average, with the levels being on the somewhat lower and muffled side. I can only imagine how this CD would have sounded like with the financial resources and production quality of a major label backing it. Nevertheless, the CD is a must have for any fan of industrial based hard rock and of course any God Lives Underwater fan. I'm glad they finally got the disc out, warts and all... and it serves as a reminder to me of a fun time in my life where GLU would take the stage of the cramped Coney Island High in NYC and rock out with the best of them.

As many of you may or may not have heard, former lead singer of God Lives Underwater and what would have been future solo artist David Reilly has passed away from stomach complications. A sad and tragic fate for a great performer. He will be sorely missed.

In the interim, the final album from God Lives Underwater does not come close to matching EMPTY and their self-titled debut, both of which had more of the hard-charging techno-rock embrace that domintated GLU's early material. LIFE IN THE SO CALLED SPACE AGE was flawed, but still strong and leaned more towards the techno edge. UP OFF THE FLOOR is the album that tries to return GLU to the hard rock/techno mix that EMPTY succeeded...they come up somewhat short. First off, the sound is kind of muddled on a few songs, although "White Noise" and "1%" are very good, strong rock songs and come as close to the rock of EMPTY as you're likely to hear. Secondly, they had originally planned 12 tracks and the two left off were good tracks, and the 10 we are left with are mostly good, but undermined by the flawed mastering job. It's ashame that the album turned out this way, because it could have been so much more than it is...a solid rock/techno album with a strong collection of songs, but a flawed sound.

UP OFF THE FLOOR is probably the weakest GLU album, but it still has its share of good moments and it's memorable enough to make it an essential to any hardcore GLU fan's collection. But sadly, it is not the masterpiece that it could have been had more time been put into the mastering and, some, the music. Listen if you want to hear the last notes of GLU. (May you rest in peace, David Reilly)

GLU was once called by Spin magazine to be the best band you've never heard.

`Up Off the Floor" has taken 5 years to come out. When GLU's record label 1500 records collapsed the album was shelved and the tracks could be downloaded from the bands website until that too went down!

Then GLU broke up, David Reilly formed Fluzee and released an e.p. called the `7 e.p.'

In the meantime David Reilly-vocalist recorded his 1st solo CD called `David Reilly-INSIDE e.p.' and Jeff Turzo continued to form a new project titled `WIRED ALL WRONG'.

`Up Off the Floor' is a masterpiece of an album; it is GLU's `In Utero'.

The songs are much darker and heavier, the lyrics deal with drug addiction, death, and well some positivity!

David Reilly is currently working on a full length solo LP on corporate punishment records.
