Florence + The Machine

Recommended Posts

I was honestly worried that Ethel Cain blowing my mind would make this album pale in comparison, but this is really excellent. Every single track hits and I love the lyrics and atmosphere throughout. Florence killed it, Jack killed it, it's soo good!! Cohesive and complex throughout and a darker take on dance fever than I expected, which I LOVE. What an excellent week for music :true:

This album is impressive. I love it. It's probably going to be one of my favorites.

Has anyone heard the Poems versions of King, Cassendra and My Love that are exclusives to Apple Music ? What do they sound like ?

Just got the vinyl boxset in the mail:

- Search and Destroy is a cover of the Iggy Pop song as he is the writer in the credits :rip:

- the card set is TINY but all the cards are the same except for King and Dream Girl Evil which are different :crai:

- the lyric book has zero pictures :toofloppy:

 

I still love it though:defeated:

Okay so 24 hours later, and I think this may top HIH as her best written album. "The Bomb", "Daffodil" and "Morning Elvis" are personal standouts for me. But really the album is that rare combination of cohesive, artistic, and well formulated. It feels like each note, each lyric, serves a clear and distinct purpose that takes the album as a whole to a new height. There is nothing sloppy about this (none of Flo's work has been), and it shines in both concept and delivery. 


catch a wave and take in the sweetness
