I'm 43, so trying to get down with the youth, OMG this record is, like amazing.....

Seen them live and both albums are outstanding, with the MTV version setting a new level. Now, if you don't like them, don't buy it cause it is a raw version of F+TM, without any poptarts added, just a voice and a few "unplugged" stringy things.

This has set a new level; enjoy!

There - that got your attention!

There are many out there who think that Florence only has one voice setting, this is the perfect response. Stripped of many of the layers of instrumentation, Florence's voice displays a subtlety which is not always apparent on the two studio albums, and as a result many of the songs display a different character to the original versions.

My personal favourite tracks on this album are 'No Light, No Light', and a beautiful cover version of the Otis Redding classic 'Try A Little Tenderness'. For me it's also worth the extra to buy the CD/DVD version, the cover of 'Jackson' with Josh Homme works much better when you are actually watching the performance rather than just listening.

This is an excellent album, showing a different side to Florence's voice. Dare I say it, more than a few who don't like the studio albums may be tempted to check this one out. To anyone in this category I would unequivocally say do it - you won't be disappointed.

Having had the pleasure to see Florence live in person during the recent Ceremonials Tour, I was hardly surprised that this album knocked everything out of the park. Florence has great range here and shows it especially in "Try A Little Tenderness". The band and background singers are sublime, complimenting Florence's style effortlessly. Special mention goes to the acoustic guitarist who really shines throughout the set.

Once again Florence proves she performs just as well in duets as she does solo. "Jackson" with her and Josh Homme is a delight to listen to but even better when watched. The DVD is worth it just for that song alone, not to mention the brilliant set design and actually seeing Florence perform with such grace and emotion.

In conclusion, this album is nothing less than fantastic. It's a must have for die-hard fans and newcomers alike. Also features possibly the best renditions of "Never Let Me Go" and "What The Water Gave Me" I have ever heard.

I must say that i was completely surprised by this Album, I always thought the MTV Unplugged series was for Artists that
are living legends like Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart,Paul McCartney etc.
Florence and The Machine make a refreshing change to the Genre and perform a memorable and beautiful set and the Vocals and Production are absolutely Brilliant.
I would go as far as to say that i think this is the Best Unplugged Album of the Lot.
Absolutely Brilliant from Start to Finish, i do not think there is one duff track on the whole Album.
An Absolutely Beautiful Album - A Must Have!!!

Ive watched the dvd several times now and my reaction is still the same......WOW! Florence shows what a wonderfull and emotive voice she has bringing to life some wonderfull tracks in this MTV performance.The set looks amazing and is in near HD quality on my tv and played through a 5.1 sound system you can hear every musical instrument,raw and unplugged.Her voice.... wow you just have to turn the volume up to appreciate it (i apologise to my neighbours right now! hehe)

As has been mentioned im puzzled by the omission of Cosmic Love on the dvd,its one of my favourite songs and although its on the cd i still would have preferred to see the performance.Overall though this is a truly magical album that i will treasure for a long time....and my 5.1 system has never had it so good. 10/10

In contrast to her other studio albums, this one is almost melancholy, but wow, does the power of her voice really shine through.

The studio albums are ones for turning up the volume, particularly when "the wife" is out, whereas this one is far more laid back and suited to a relaxing Sunday afternoon.

It all depends on whether you like the unplugged style of presentation - if you do, and you like Florence, then buy this. If either of these isn't true, stick with the studio albums.

It all comes down to personal taste and I can't dictate that for you.

Make up your mind - hopefully this review and others will give you food for thought.
