About this item

Floral Shoppe (フローラルの専門店) is the cult studio album by the American electronic musician under the one-time alias Macintosh Plus, released on December 9, 2011. Since then, Floral Shoppe has been considered to be the defining album of the Vaporwave style and been heralded as one of the most significant albums in the early days of vaporwave.

In a retrospective review, Adam Downer of Sputnikmusic characterized the album as "constantly—and delightfully—unsettling" and "a beautiful record that's both warm and strange, nostalgic and futuristic, bizarre and totally simple." Writing for Pitchfork, Miles Bowe concluded, "Nothing could change or improve its sound which, even after thousands of soundalikes, has lost none of its perception-shattering power." Vice (Noisey) included Floral Shoppe on their ranking of the 100 best albums of the 2010s.
