Though it was released after the band's self-titled debut, Dove was actually recorded in 1994. While the album shows signs of the sonorous drone that would become the band's trademark, the rawer recording and rougher vocals mean the album doesn't quite have the same soaring qualities the band would develop. What makes Dove interesting is that it shows how, even in their early, more elemental days, Floor still possessed an ear for pop melody, with "Figure It Out" acting as a hint for what the band would eventually grow into. In contrast to the band's self-titled effort, Dove certainly isn't essential listening, but for the initiated, it definitely makes for an interesting look back at one of underground metal's most woefully underappreciated bands.
