She seems to have a fairly limited range in her alto voice and the only other dynamic is yelling. At the end of the day, her voice isn't really all that amazing, but I suppose she's doing well enough with what she has.
This is a fantastic song and I love all things Florence, her voice, her lyrics, her presentation and of course, the way she looks. I don't understand all the hate here for her, but we all have different tastes and that's cool with me. I'm just glad that RP likes her and plays her often. Thanks.
Cool song but every song from this album just reminds me to listen to the superior first album. This one for instance is good but when My boy builds coffins the power of this song suddenly seems limp by comparison.
I'm still not sure why there is so much hate directed at F+TM. She's got an amazing voice, the melody is fantastic, the lyrics are fantastic, The music is fantastic and her compositions have a completely unique sound. I love her.
Having seen Flo perform live (on Tv) on several occasions by now, I'm beginning to wonder whether she has a personal vendetta against notes. When 80% of her notes are off key- and I mean way off - and she continues to prance about the stage as though this is her intention - suspicions are going to be aroused.
Her voice doesn't sound off-key on these recordings, but I've never heard a live performance of hers. "Foghorn" Florence's pitch is not what bothers me about most of the songs I've heard from this band, it's her howling.
