wonderdog Stunning, simply stunning. It takes my breath away - such a powerful voice & a powerhouse production. Not to say it's loud, just assertive. She should be hailed as a goddess.

Hassles An oft subtle African rhythmic presence, an avant-garde soulfulness, a haunting sparsity over which she reigns supreme, piano, strings & god damn its good! amazingly good. Florence watch-out, here she comes!
