    Massively disappointing album. Still some good songs on it like Adios.

  1. Von Bohlen's thin vocals and a generally mushy sound keeps Glass Floor from catching hold at first, but Maritime's gently buzzing guitars give the songs a backbone that helps them stand up to multiple exposures.
  2. Plenty of albums split the difference between gems and junk, but the biggest problem with Glass House is that it lacks any discernible anima; the band seems to be phoning in their performance from a comfy armchair somewhere in Milwaukee.
  3. An unexpected treat.
