Florence & The Machine, Discusion Thread.

Really surprised there isn't a thread about these guys!!! I done my best to search for one but couldn't find any, sorry again if there is one out there,

I first seen Florence and the Machine on the telly at Glastonbury, and was instantly blown away!!! Phenomenal performance! still haven't seen them live myself, can't wait to tho, everything I've heard has been extremely positive!

There debut album "Lungs" is one of the best debut albums I've ever heard!! Great from start to finish!!!

Whats the thoughts on Florence & the Machine here???

It got a bunch of mentions in the "best music of 2009" thread, or whatever it's called. It's a good album - I just finally heard it a few weeks ago.

Actually, wikipedia spells it as Florence and the Machine (alternatively Florence + the Machine)

I love the album, going to see them live in a couple of months Although I feel weird saying "them" when it's really all about Florence Welch.

"Kiss With A Fist" is a cool song. That British accent isn't hidden at all, and I like that.

That's about all I have to add.

Lungs is probably the album of the past year that had the most hidden gems. Blinding, Cosmic Love, Between Two Lungs and Hurricane Drunk all deserve to get the recognition that Kiss With A Fist and Rabbit Heart have.

Damn , I thought I got the thread right this time! sorry.

Yeah Kiss With a Fist is a great tune, the rest of the album kinda takes a different direction tho, very consistent and great throughout, Kinda like a more poppy Arcade Fire,

The album is well worth checking out,

I think "I'm Not Calling You a Liar" and "Howl" are also hidden gems,

Does the + thing really matter?

Using a + in a band name is awesome, so yes, it matters.

Yep. That and Rabbit Heart are pretty superb. I mostly listen to the album just to hear Florence sing; the music is incidental.
