I love this album. Florence Welch is so different to any other artist I know, with the use of the harp being prominent and refreshing on several of the album's songs. I can listen without skipping a track, and the mix of songs is quite eclectic, with indie-rock 'Kiss with a Fist', dark, nonchalant 'My boy builds coffins' and the hugely powerful and tribal sound of 'Cosmic Love'. Perhaps my favourite non-single (so far anyway) is Hurricane Drunk although i'm really coming round to Cosmic Love.
Main review stops here - for longer version, read on...

I'll quickly review each track.
Dog Days are Over - Quiet ukelele gives way to full-blown havoc
Rabbit Heart - A bittersweet reflection on the achievment of fame, 'sacrifice' of life for the shiny 'looking glass' - 'who is the lamb and who is the knife?'
I'm Not Calling You A Liar - Not the best on the album, but with a beautiful switch of key for the chorus.
Howl - A real belter, one I loved as soon as I heard it.
Kiss With A Fist - Based on this song and Dog days, Florence was awarded the Critics Choice award of 2009 at the BRITs. Quality, not quantity is the key in this song.
Girl With One Eye - Dark lyrics 'i'll cut your little heart out, cause you made me cry' - kind of evokes music from Westerns.
Drumming Song - This should have done better as a single. Louder and louder...
Between Two Lungs - breathy (naturally) and light, I haven't really got this song yet. but enjoyable.
Cosmic Love - A real punch in the face - Florence's voice is at its most powerful and astonishing here.
My Boy Builds Coffins - not one of my top 5 songs but an interesting and disturbing listen.
Hurricane Drunk - great, accessible. About her being rejected. 'I belong to the hurricane'.

Florence and the Machine dazzled me last year with her haunting vocals and beautiful compositions. Therefore without purchasing the original CD last year and feeling slightly guilty, It was only right that I should purchase this box set and there are some good points and bad points.

General Contents

CD 1 - Lungs (Album)
CD 2 - Live At Abbey Road Set
CD 3 - B-Sides, Remixes, Rarities and Acoustics
DVD - Live at the Rivoli Ballroom, Acoustic sets and music videos

Packaging

The box set is really good quality as it has an almost book feel to it. The hard cover gives it durability and weight which is nice when your paying all this money. The disks are nicely spread out and the book in the middle was a really worthwhile addition although I'm disappointed that full lyrics were not added in. 9/10

CD's

The album 'Lungs' itself is a winner and needs no rating as it is pure brilliance. The live set at Abbey Road was great as it really showcases Florence's vocal range. The content on the B-sides was good but there were some annoying absences. There were no demos, 'Addicted to Love' and 'Falling' were not included and in all honesty, the third disk just didn't do the box set any justice. 8/10

DVD

I have mixed feelings about the DVD. The live set at the Rivoli Ballroom was a mixed bag to be honest. The camera work was excellent but the sound quality was poor. Although the music can be heard clearly, Florence's vocals, which are the main focus of the entire band were really quiet and fell to the background. Also I didn't like the way the DVD flowed as it kept cutting to the next song, which didn't show her personality which is a spectacle in itself.

This is a review for the vinyl edition of Florence and the Machine Lungs album. It's now a couple of months since I've had this album and I still don't tire listening to it. The Gatefold Vinyl presentation is first class - photography on both inner and outer cover tremendous plus photography on both sides of the sleeve insert makes this a fine addition to my vinyl collection. Nice touch on side 1 and side 2 of the record being labelled "in" and "out" - you won't get that on any other format like CD and definitely not on a digital download! Sound quality of the tracks is first rate played on a quality turntable and noticed that same track listings as in CD release so nothing added or lost.

Florench Welch's fine vocals and energy like a fusion of Kate Bush and Siouxsie Sioux - can't wait to see her perform live in Dec 2009 Glasgow.

Great to see new artists releasing their material on Vinyl. Just ordered Bat for Lashes "Two Suns" also on Vinyl and hoping that it will be of the same standard as Florence and The Machine's album. Keep it up for us vinyl collectors who still like to physically hold and cherish their music collection. Vinyl still rules for presentation of Album artwork, lyrics you can read on bigger fonts and of course the sound quality on a properly produced album such as this.

I won't focus this review on the main album here, Lungs, as chances are you have already heard it if you are looking at this box set. Suffice to say it is a fantastic album and easily worth 5 stars in its own right.

The remainder of the box is a very worthy addition to the collection of any Florence fan - the Live At Abbey Road disc has very strong live performances of 8 tracks from the album (including all 5 singles) plus a good cover of "Oh! Darling".

The third disc is actually quite a disappointment - the "Remixes Covers and Rarities" on offer are a woefully small selection of the great rarities that Florence already has to offer. What is there is generally good, but there are glaring omissions such as her great covers of "Hospital Beds", "Addicted To Love" and "Going Down" and the contents of the original bonus disc from the 2-disc version of the album. It also would have been nice to see the acoustic version of "My Boy Builds Coffins" there given that to date it has only been made available on vinyl (on the Drumming Song 7"). Finally, it would have been amazing to have the bluesy, gutsy demo version of Coffins on there too. But for all these flaws in the track listing, I can't really fault what is there as there are still some strong tracks on this disc.

The fourth and final disc is a DVD, live from the Rivoli Ballroom. I haven't actually watched the DVD yet, but I was in the front row at the concert back in July and can safely say that Florence was on fantastic form and provided that the camera has captured the set well it will be a fantastic DVD that I look forward to watching soon. It's also good that the entire set that she played that night has been included on the DVD.
