I grew up to the beat of electronic drums
bought the album today with special bonus 7 track disc, it's a great album, ive been itching to get this for months and months!
Busy writing up a review, but...album of the year contender for sure.
I have to agree, VERY strong contender for 'album of the year'. Pun intended: Florence does have a great set of lungs! This album is everything a great album should be -- sincere, great songs, great production (that doesn't overshadow the artist), immensely enjoyable, and just so darn good!
I need to live with it for awhile before I review it. I have trouble expressing myself about certain music.Zen, I really like the passion of it. I like to think we're moving back to a phase of romanticism!
Maybe so indeed. It's monumental, isn't it?I like what you said about needing to live with the record for a while. I've been that way with the Antigone album, which I'd actually put as my 2nd favourite album of the year behind Flo-Ro.
xo, I have to agree with you (in regards to moving back to a phase of romanticism). Enough of the processed Lady GaGa types, already!To me, "Lungs" is immediate...but also a grower (in that repeated listens reveal more about the storylines and the attention to detail). I feel like Florence has been presented to us as a ripened musical fruit, brought down from a musical tree that holds influences from a range of other women in song (Beth Orton, Sinead O'Connor, Lone Justice-era Maria McKee and Sarah McLachlan, for starters).I love how there are did-she-say-that moments with lyrics like "...get your filthy hands out of my pie"!
Actually, that should be "filthy fingers"! It's early....
