Saw Florence in concert yesterday! She's a star, a totally gorgeous, dynamic, theatrical, charismatic performer Great pair of lungs on her as well, though it's a shame she had to hold back on those high notes in Rabbit Heart. I think she also worked in Fever Ray's If I Had a Heart into one of her songs.

I regret not having heard this album earlier, as it is a really enjoyable listen with great variety. It definitely would have made my best-of 2009 list had I heard it in time. I'm somewhat ashamed to admit that the bulk of my indie listening comes via Pitchfork's "Best New Music" designations, and since Florence was not granted said designation she evaded my notice.

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.
