Florence + the Machine – How Big How Blue How Beautiful (2015)

A worthy follow-up to Florence and the Machine’s first two albums, “How Big How Blue How Beautiful” is one of her most consistent as well, with each song registering as a mini-masterpiece in its own right (especially “Queen of Peace”), driven by her forceful vocals, arresting lyrics and the urgency of her music. In some ways she’s become the sophisticated rock version of Pink, delivering reliably strong material that manages to sound both artistically authentic and commercially viable, making her one of the more interesting semi-mainstream acts around.
