Overview

One of the last things Kip Winger released before taking a long sabbatical, Songs from the Ocean Floor was largely inspired and influenced by his trip to Egypt following the death of his wife in a car accident. The events in Winger's life had a dramatic effect on the music of the disc, as his normally good-time rockin' self was replaced with a more introspective, somber singer delivering grittier performances than those of his pop-metal tenure (especially when compared to power ballad fluff like "Miles Away"). The musicianship is much more layered and diverse, with Middle Eastern elements and instrumentation taking the place of the traditional rock combo of drums, bass, and guitar. It might not win over any new fans (especially ones looking for another round of "Seventeen"), but loyal fans should take note of Winger's creative evolution. Although an expression of grief associated with personal tragedy, Songs from the Ocean Floor is quite a leap forward for Kip Winger in terms of maturity and musicianship.
