Album Review: 'Dreamland' by Floating In Space

Title:  Dreamland (Deep Elm Records, BandCampAmazon, iTunes, Spotify)
Artist:  Floating In Space (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SoundCloud, Deep Elm Records)

If one was to use one word to describe Floating In Motion's sophomore album Dreamland it would be soaring.  From the opening notes of "Airlock" the listener is taken on a wondrous journey that swells with hope and crashes with determination like waves on the beach only to repeat again and again like the coming and going of the tides.  Brainchild of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ruben Caballero, Floating In Space has taken the incredible foundation laid in 2016's excellent The Edge of Light and expanded the depths of their music's majestic wonder to all new heights.  Each song on Dreamland is filled with power and the soaring hope of a spring sunrise, pulling you in and taking your heart to the heavens with each glorious crescendo.  Like label-mates Lights & Motion, Floating In Space has perfected the genre of cinematic post-rock and taken it to new soaring heights.
