5.0 out of 5 stars FLORENCES LAMP SHINES BRIGHT!!!!!!, 14 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MTV Presents Unplugged: Florence + The Machine (Audio CD)
Florence ia a real taalent with one hell of a voice,and this excellentpackage shows it off well.
"Only for the night"is absolutely stunning,followed by a storming version of "Drumming song" nextup is "Cosmic Love" which is not on the DVD,avery atmospheric upbeat tune continues the quality shown so far.
"Breaking down"follows with its steel drums and great piano in the backing,very sad lyrics though.
"Never let me go"follows,again a slow building cauldron of immense passion.
"Try a little tenderness" is just a majestically ,magnificently brooding version of the Otis Redding song,stunning.
"No light no light" again starts slowly,beautiful harp playing adds to this,..
"Jackson" is the old Nancy Sinatra/LEE hazelwood song sung with Josh Homme and is the weakest track on the album.
"what the water gave me"re minds me of 80's folk rock band "All about eve" and is possibly the most "Unplugged" song on the album.
"Dog days are over"is next,with its slighly supertamp piano,thundering drums and glorious gospel singing and vocal gymnastics,in time clapping as well!!!
The whole album i s bought to an by an amazing version of "Shake it out"
This is an unplugged album with A gospel choir and orchestra and too many musicians to mention individually,but this is a fine achievement indeed!!!
The packaging is not up to the standard of the "Ceremonials" special edition but then few cds are.

DVD....41.50

June Carter and Johnny Cash's version of this song is amazing and yes Florence and Joshua do it justice, but how could they not....with talent like that!!
