Florence + The Machine
“How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful”
After a three year hiatus from personal issues, depression and writer’s block, Florence Welch creates a captivating concept album that you can’t help but to cheer her on. What’s big about this album is the rise and defining sounds of hardcore guitars riffs as well as the volcanic vocals on Welch. What’s blue is how each song’s theme is riveting and striking that it will leave you to tears. What’s beautiful is the blossoming arrangements in the string, horn and percussion sections; the edge of perseverance, and the attempt to live life after moving on through depression on this magnificent album. Florence + The Machine also proved that within every sorrow and despair, there is always joy in their reflections.
