Up Off The Floor is the 2004 album released by God Lives Underwater and is their third full length album. The album was originally recorded in 2000 but due to drug problems within the band and their record label going bankrupt the album was shelved until Megaforce Records picked it up. There have been numerous complaints amongst fans about the quality of the album's mastering, as well as complaints that two of the more well-known songs from the album's sessions ("Choir Boy" and "Fame") were removed and not included in the official release for undisclosed reasons. The album was, however, released to somewhat modest success, with the song "1% (The Long Way Down)" featured in the movie 15 Minutes.

CD Audio Quality[edit]

The CD release by Megaforce Records/Locomotive Spain suffers from audio fidelity issues. One with a talented ear will notice artifacts akin to MP3 or Windows Media Audio compression. In fact, the album will test positive as being sourced from an MPEG-style stream when run through an audio fidelity testing application such as "auCDtect." How Megaforce Records' final master suffered this problem is unknown, but suspicions such as carelessness on the record label's behalf are possible. It is worth noting that several bootleg "promo" copies of the album do not suffer from this problem. This is a rare case where a bootleg release of an album has a better quality sound than the official release.
