Zola Jesus & Opinions on Florence + The Machine

How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

Florence + The Machine How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

With the release of their third studio album, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, Florence + The Machine have entered into their introspective phase. The album, produced by David Lynch collaborator and stadium rock creator Marcus Dravs, was a product of a dark period lead singer Florence Welch had in her life after a breakup. Greg thinks the songs that are introspective and address her personal life show real growth among the stadium rock songs. He gives this album a Try It rating. Jim on the other hand, hates this album. He doesn‘t appreciate Florence’s propensity for musical bombast and wishes more of the album had the big rock propulsion that the introspective songs lack. He gives the album a Trash It rating.
