  1. Decidedly mature and unapologetically soulful, Float is one of the most important records of this young year. [Apr 2008, p.148]
  2. With Float they’ve delivered another strong album that is more assured than their other records, and offers a hopeful energy.
  3. 70
    It's the band's most diverse album yet—and, diversity being their strength, it's also their most accomplished.
  4. Most of the time, however, the band's blazing energy and instrumental swagger is able to lift your spirits despite the depressing subject matter.
  5. Float is rescued from abject tedium by the deep, poetic lure of the subject matter and a couple of genuinely outstanding compositions in ‘Float’ and ‘(No More) Paddy’s Lament.’
  6. Thier relentless pursuit of "the craic" is wearing, evocative song titles not hiding the fact Dublin-native Dave King's lyrics lack the romanticism of Shane MacGowan. [June 2008, p.138]
