No, their own show at The Palace. Her vocals are less polished live I suppose and she skipped a few of the high notes on the album, most notably in the chorus of Rabbit Heart. But she could have sounded three times worse and I probably wouldn't have noticed because she's just so much fun to watch

I discovered Florence And The Machine because of the Here Lies Love album. I loved the track and loved Florence's voice, so decided to check out the Lungs album, I really liked it and will definitely be looking forward for new releases.

Towards the end of her tour she started playing a new song Strangeness & Charm. It is probably the best song I have heard so far this year. If this is the direction she is taking then her next album could be even better than Lungs.

I enjoy the album a lot, but I think she's a pretty weak in terms of vocal abilities.
I think I'm in love with XX remix of "You've Got The Love", more than the original version.

I love Florence's singing but I do think that she's a fairly limited vocalist. Maybe her singing will become more varied with time, she just only started out after all.

This is very good, I hope it'll be on her next album.

I just adore Florence . . . I know a lot of people think she's an annoying screeching harlot but I adore her passion and Lungs is one of my favourite albums at the moment . . . came to it late but fell in love from the get go

thanks for posting that song Screwtape . . . it's gorgeous

As much as I love the album, I have to say that she's really not impressed me with her live singing.

I saw her this year ... honestly don't remember how she sounded (I was tired and had a bad spot, and wasn't 100% involved, alas).

But after seeing her on SNL (where she was horribly flat on both songs) and seeing clips from the Isle of Wight performances (thanks, Palladia!), I have to say that she goes flat an awful lot.

Maybe she needs to change up her style so she's not belting so much, because that's when she seems to just completely biff it.

But I still love the album.

I thought Florence was good at the concert I went to, but I've also heard her sing live on the radio and seen a few live clips on YouTube and yes, her vocals can be terribly hit-and-miss. Maybe she just needs more experience in order to develop better vocal control.

I can't wait to hear Florence and The Machine opening for U2 in Miami - only like three songs, mostly Dog Days Are Over, but I'm looking forward to their set.
