4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT ALBUM IF YOU DON'T ALREADY OWN IT!!, 16 Mar 2011
This review is from: Between Two Lungs (Audio CD)
Lets get one thing straight, this is not a new Florence and The Machine album it's just the original Lungs album put together with a second disc that includes one real new track and a reworking of another track. the rest of the second disc includes remixes and live tracks. It also includes new artwork.

The original album is great of course and for people not familiar with it and might know only one or two tracks then this would be the perfect time to get it. the album includes all six singles that have been released from the album from the haunting "Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)" which has Florence in full Kate Bush mode. "Drumming song" with it's heavy drum beats and catchy chorus is great. "You've Got the Love" which is a cover version of The Source and Candi Staton is probably the song you will know best and as covers go it's very good.

The first single released from the album was the brilliant "Kiss With A Fist" which has some great lyrics such as "a kick in the teeth is good for some". "Dog Days Are Over" opens the album with the sound of harps before the the drums come in to drive the track on, it works great. "Girl With One Eye" is a track you could imagine PJ Harvey doing with it's stripped back sound and talk of doing damage to a body part!

The second disc open with single "Heavy In Your Arms" that was used on the soundtrack to The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, it of course wouldn't have sounded out of place on the main album. Next up is a reworking of her cover version "You've Got the Love" with English rapper Dizzee Rascal called "You Got the Dirtee Love" which the two performed live at the 2010 Brits Awards. The last six songs on the album are acoustic performances from the iTunes Festival 2010 that have been previously available. The Horrors remix "Hurricane Drunk" and Yeasayer remix "Dog Days Are Over" There is also two tracks recorded from the Hammersmith Apollo they are "Strangeness & Charm" and "Swimming".

This is the fourth version of Lungs to be released and if you already own the album you have to ask yourself is it worth paying for the album again for the second disc or should you just download the tracks you don't already have. However for people who don't already own the album this is a great release!
