1.0 out of 5 stars Only 2 Good Tracks, 17 Jun 2013
Only 2 decent tracks here, Florence's absolutely gorgeous 'Over The Love' and Jack White's excellent cover of U2's 'Love Is Blindness'. In this age of being able to download individual tracks why can't you download these 2 tracks alone? The rest of the album for me is a waste of money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty mediocre, 13 Jun 2013
Bought this out of curiosity. To be fair it's not really my cup of tea, but probably only one track will get repeated play, that being 'Happy Slap' which will be vaguely familiar as an early version of Florence's own 'Kiss With A Fist'. Florence's vocals are actually quite good throughout the album, and the basic jazzy arrangements are entertaining, unfortunately in most tracks they can't resist putting a male rap in the vocals, and it gets quite wearing to the point that it's unlistenable. When one listens to Lungs and Ceremonials you can see why Florence left Ashok.

Only for Florence completists - otherwise not worth looking at.

5.0 out of 5 stars Florence Stripped, 9 April 2012
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… Read more
