  • FLOORED GENIUS is a perfect introduction to the weird, wonderful world of Julian Cope. Spanning Cope's 1979-1982 tenure as the lead singer/bassist of the celebrated UK post-punk group the Teardrop Explodes through his solo PEGGY SUICIDE album, this 20-track collection distils the best of the Teardrop Explodes' three albums and Cope's seven pre-1995 solo outings into one essential collection.
  • The six Teardrop Explodes songs on FLOORED GENIUS find Cope at the peak of his powers. Teardrop made inventive and colorful rock, encompassing everything from the swirling, neo-psychedelia of the UK pop hit "Treason" to the bright, Turtles-like '60s pop of "Passionate Friend." This is one of the great, "lost" bands of the early '80s. Although Cope's solo albums never managed to match the consistency and vision of the Teardrop Explodes, the solo recordings showcased on FLOORED GENIUS easily hold their own against that band's best work. The selections forsake the unfocused whimsy and indulgent experimentation that occasionally weigh down his albums, instead covering such concise, well-crafted songs as the aching psychedelic pop of "Elegant Chaos," the stately ballad "Charlotte Anne," and the garage-rock raver "World Shut Your Mouth." FLOORED GENUIS is a delight from start to finish.
