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.”
