Product Description

Product Description

Special four disc (three CDs + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) edition includes two bonus CDs and a bonus DVD. Disc One contains the original album while Disc Two features 11 rarities, B-sides and more. Disc Three includes nine tracks recorded live at Abbey Road Studios. Disc Four (DVD) contains a full live performance at the Rivoli Ballroom, London plus special acoustic performances and the music videos. 2009 debut album from the hotly tipped UK outfit fronted by Florence Welch. Lungs, produced by Paul Epworth, James Ford and Steve Mackay, is an intoxicating mix of delicate fragility, dark humor and twisted Tim Burton style fairy-tales. From the live favorite 'You've Got The Love' to the raw Blues-tinged 'Girl With One Eye' to the beautifully painful 'Between Two Lungs', the album is crammed with crowd pleasers. Also boasting fresh tracks like new single 'Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)', 'Drumming' - with its epic denseness, the terrifyingly brilliant 'Howl' and 'Hurricane Drunk' with it's paradoxical charms of heartbreak, love and loss, Lungs promises to leave us wanting more of the insanely captivating Florence Welch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Run fast for your father July 27 2009
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
"Happiness hit her like a train on a track/Coming towards her stuck still no turning back/She hid around corners and she hid under beds/She killed it with kisses and from it she fled..."

Florence and the Machine is one of those little bands that seeps in under the pop radar, and becomes a sensation based on pure talent. And Florence Welch and Co. produce a solid debut, "Lungs," that blends delicate polished instrumentals and different genres -- there's little splatters of pop, punk and soul woven together, and cemented in place by Welch's lovely voice.

It kicks off with the plucked intro of "Dog Days Are Over," with Welch's sweet voice singing about "Happiness hit her like a bullet in the head/Struck from a great height by someone who should know better than that." While it starts off as soft, ethereal pop, the melody is swathed in eruptions of orchestral pop-rock -- it gets loud'n'catchy, with Welch yelling, "The doooog days are OVER-ER/the dooooog days are ALL DONE!"

She continues the high note with "Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)," a scintillatingly colorful melody that sounds like a thunderstorm in a flower garden. After that she unleashes a bunch of other great songs: the soulful "I'm Not Calling You A Liar," the urgent piano-pop of "Howl," the wandering twangy "Girl With One Eye," the bouncy wistful "Between Two Lungs," and the sweetly macabre "My Boy Builds Coffins." An especially fun one is "Kiss With A Fist," a blazing punky tune that celebrates rough'n'passionate relationships ("You hit me once, I hit you back/you gave a kick, I gave a slap/you crashed a plate over my head/and I set fire to our bed!").

5.0 out of 5 stars A musical experience like no other Oct. 28 2010
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
While I can't say I've been with Florence and the Machine from the very beginning, I am proud to say that I discovered this incredible artist several months before she started getting wider exposure in the US through TV commercials and movie promos. It's so rare these days to find an artist with a truly unique sound, but that is exactly what you get from Florence and the Machine. Florence Welch's voice is simply mesmerizing and beautiful, and I can only describe her music as ethereal and downright hypnotic - and the diversity of musical styles to be found wrapped around these 13 tracks is amazing. Individual songs such as Dog Days Are Over feature amazing transitions within themselves, as Florence can go back and forth from a soft and poetic delivery to a howling crescendo of emotion at the drop of a hat. She may borrow from many different musical influences, but her sound is entirely her own. In terms of creativity, raw emotional depth, and meaningful lyrics, I would rank Florence way up there, not too far behind Tori Amos (and believe me when I say that this is high praise indeed).

I wish I had the depth of musical knowledge needed to truly do this album justice. I can't even begin to describe Florence's music - it's something you really have to experience on your own. All I can say is that I've listened to this album numerous times over the last several months and have yet to begin to tire of it. You can pick and choose individual tracks to listen to and never go wrong, but Lungs is really an album that should be listened to in its entirety - with the repeat button on to start the whole thing over again when it's finished. This is a musical work of art that captures your full attention each and every time you hear it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as expected. Feb. 16 2014
By FormosaWest TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
What can i say.

This album is great. The vinyl version is clean, dynamic and a real treat. I enjoy this album and expect that many others will too. As archaic as vinyl is, i enjoy its tactile involvement, its collectibility and its unique and natural sound. Even from a digital master, (which today is ideal by my opinion) vinyl imparts a certain magical musical experience that likens to nature in a very special way. No tape hiss, no digital harshness, not over compressed/treated. It lets the magic of a good moving coil cartridge show you what vinyl is capable of.

I feel the songs on this album are all instant hits and are just the ticket when i feel the time to hear florence welsh show her stuff! What a voice and what style. Fabulous songwriting.

I could listen to Florence Welch sing the phone book. Her voice is a force of nature and the songs are wicked. Buy it - you'll love it.

When auditioning LUNGS by FLORENCE AMD THE MACHINE, one hears a fusion of the brilliant pop eccentricity associated with BJORK brushed with a minor vocal shadow of KATE BUSH and in certain moments CHRISSIE HYNDE and ANNIE LENNOX (as soloists).

This CD is musically influential for this decade as it creatively surpasses current low standards set by the music industry. Fans of Britney, Millie and other pop tarts are duly warned this will go above the grasp and knowledge that you have acquired for pop music.

LUNGS immediately landed at #2 on the UK charts upon its release and impressively remained at that position for five consecutive weeks.
Certain segments remain dark and ominous as witnessed by the lyrics on tracks GIRL WITH ONE EYE & the troubling KISS WITH A FIST that tackles the theme of abusive relationships yet melodically it remains sophistically inspiring and upbeat.

The intriguing musicianship crafting this CD constantly sways from Indie/Pop to Baroque/Folk.
The end result has listeners spellbound, addicted and truly wanting for more from this band.

Best tracks:

DOGS DAYS ARE OVER
RABBIT HEART
HURRICANE DRUNK
KISS WITH A FIST

and the remake of Candi Staton's hit;

YOU GOT THE LOVE

~~~~ One of the best releases in 2009!~~~~~

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab CD
Great CD filled with angst ridden lyrics. CD arrived well before estimated delivery date. Ordering from Italy can be a pain, but sellers like this make the transaction livable.

This is an amazing album all round. Enchanting lyrics, sounds, beats and a modern vibe grounded in a classical sense of the world.
