Just a forewarning, this might be one of my last reviews for the website so you guys needn't have to worry about outrageously lengthy reviews nearly as much. Also, I've probably managed to slip in a few unnecessary commas and such. You'll have to forgive me because it's nearly 2am and I'm exhausted.

Why is the review so long? I feel that if an artist works tirelessly on an album for three years; if they have a hand in writing, recording, producing, mixing, mastering and sequencing their work, then at the very least they deserve something in-depth. If I didn't give them that, I may as well go write for AMG.

Great review, the more in depth, the better

Great job, man. The more spontaneous the better, and again, the more in-depth, the better.

Relax, man. You know, just keep following the heartlines on your hand.

PS: I wanted to review it, but you were quicker I guess :D

I love that line and just the manner in which Florence delivers it. You can review it as well though, user reviews and differing opinions are always welcome, my friend.

Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to read it. I hope you love it equally as much as I do.

Simply amazing.

Definitely, the album is gorgeous. As to why I'm leaving, it depends on my numerous other commitments. I just can't seem to balance everything that I want to do and still write regularly.

You can't stop writing for AP.net after this. Incredible review man, perhaps one of my favourite reviews I've read on the site all year.

The album itself is just phenomenal. Album of the year for me, no questions asked. Even the three bonus tracks + the Landscape demo are brilliant.

Yeah man, you shouldn't really leave after a review that splendid...

Oh, the BTs and demos may be the best part of the album!
