Latest Obsession

16 Jan

Well since I have some time on my hands and I haven’t posted anything about the latest crave I’ve gone through I’ll take this chance to do so lol. So not to long ago I finally got the chance to listen to the Florence and the machine (Florence + Machine) ( and no not because gLee covered Dog Days, I actually wanted to give her a listen too when I saw her perform at the 2010 VMA)  and I can say this album was amazing!!! Out of the 20 tracks of the album I can easily say that 15 tracks are my favorite, the remaining 5 (some are just demos or alternate versions) are ok but just not my favorite. Check out the tracklist and i’ll bold the tracks I really enjoy.

1. Dog Days Are Over

2. Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)

3. I’m Not Calling You A Liar

4. Howl

5. Kiss With A Fist

6. Girl With One Eye

7. Drumming

8. Betweeen Two Lungs

9. Cosmic Love

10. My Boy Builds Coffins

11. Hurricane Drunk

12. Blinding

13. You’ve Got The Love

Deluxe Edition

1. Bird Song Intro

2. Bird Song

3. Dog Days Are Over (Demo)

4. Falling

5. Hardest Of Hearts

6. Ghosts (Demo)

7. Girl With One Eye (Bayou Percussion Version)

Whats also interesting is the use of a harp in this album (as it shows up in most songs), its use creates a catchy melody that explodes into a joyful, exuberant chorus. Lyrically, Lungs finds Florence side-stepping mundane descriptions of the everyday in favour of flights of fancy. The track Howl is an excellent example of how she uses her lyrics to paint a dark picture but to descriptively sing a song about love. You are given the dark descriptions of a wolf (or a werewolf) breaking through the night prowling looking for something to hunt, to tear apart, but when put together with the other lyrics its a song about young lovers and the crave to be with each other.

Lol I’m trying to think of stuff to say but I have Felix and Orlando talking and I can’t really think to much LOL but alas this album is really good, you should check out the two songs I’m gonna post up they are my all time favorites. =D

Rabbit Heart ( Raise It Up)
