Florence and the Machine - how big, how blue, how beautiful

Its drama this 3rd album from Florence and the Machine, there is no shortage of emotion on display amid the sonic attacks on songs like "Ship to wreck" and "Queen of peace". In fact it can be a bit overblown, over the top but you know... it just sounds so damn good. Florence's voice is so powerful she could easily get a job as an auxiliary fog horn if the music career dries up, on music like this this is a good thing by the way. Its not a perfect album, or even a good one. More a set of really good tunes set amid some filler but the filler is at least passable and when its good its really good.
