Floetry follow-up their Grammy-nominated debut with the live disc, Floacism. This set features nine songs from Floetic and three new studio tracks, including the Mos Def collaboration "Wanna Be Where U R (Thisizzaluvsong)."
All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
On the strength of 2002's Floetic, Floetry became the Bush of neo-soul -- an English act with most of its commercial success in the States. Though the critical reception was equally warm in both territories, Floetic hit the Top 20 of the Billboard album chart in the U.S., while it didn't perform nearly as well in the U.K. With the two-disc Floacism Live, Floetry give their U.S. fans a gift of ...

The show has a lot of energy, but it's best experienced visually, although the live arrangements are competent enough. Discerning fans will be satiated somewhat by the three new studio recordings that open the set, including a fiery "Microphone Fiend"- sampling tune that features Mos Def.
Billboard - Gail Mitchell
The disc captures the seamless, spontaneous interplay between Ambrosius and Stewart; it also taps into the pair's symbiotic relationship with its audience -- a mutual admiration society that kicks in energetically on several tracks.
Blender - James Hannaham
It corrects the first release by adding spontaneity and by showcasing Marsha Ambrosius's often brilliant vocals, which improve the more she dominates Natalie Stewart's self-righteous flows.

    THIS IS ONE OF THE GREATEST CDS I'VE EVER HEARD!!!

    Floetry is such a wonderful duo! They're lyrics are real and they definitely speak about life experiences that everyone goes through. The live CD is actually better than their first album, which was great! So, that says a lot about their talent. You have to have this CD in your collection!!!
