EDITORS’ NOTES

Big, bold, and baroque, Florence + The Machine's debut album thrives on drama. Built around the effortless sweep of Florence Welch's voice, and the delicate trills of the harp, it proudly lays its emotions bare, barreling between suffocating lust on “Drumming Song,” debilitating fear on “Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up),” and the pain of heartbreak on the breathless “Cosmic Love." But Welch also understands the power of redemption: She closes with a rousing version of The Source and Candi Staton's “You've Got the Love.”

Wonderful~!

Florence and the Machine is utterly amazing! I just think that the Lungs deluxe edition should be added to the US iTunes! If you agree, say that this review is helpful!

Pure Brilliance

This is one amazing album, hands down. I'm not even sure how to convey how much I love it. Florence's voice and music are simply outstanding. The mix of beautiful instrumentation and the dark, gothic lyrics is stunning, and the more you listen to the songs the more you realize just how intricate and special each one is. Although I hate to single songs out, the must-have standout tracks are Dog Days Are Over, Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up) and Cosmic Love. In my opinion though, the whole CD is worth every cent.
