FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE-LUNGS
This CD won a very prestigious award in London for best new artist. I completely understand why. If you have been reading MUSIC MANIAC for sometime you know I write a lot about music. This type of CD does not come around often. I’m obsessed with Florence. Her passion, voice and song writing is so unique and powerful! Every song has alittle bit of a different beat and attitude but it all screams Florence and the Machine. The title “Lungs” tells it all. It all comes from so deep inside that the lungs need to let it out and boy does she. This is a must…everyone I recommended this to has thanked me and is now in the Flo club.
SINEAD O’ CONNOR-THE LION AND THE COBRA
This debut CD from Sinead was so powerful and strong! We never heard a voice so passionate and beautiful at the same time. She was so interesting and unique. I thought that the Florence and the Machine CD mentioned above reminded me of this CD from the past. Mostly for the beauty and strength that both represent. They go together. Sinead uses her “lungs” to their capacity to sings songs such as Jackie, Troy, and Jerusalem. Check it out. This is one of the best debuts from one of the most gorgeous voices in rock music.
