So FloMac just released a mini-album available Aug. 12th locally, with her cover of Stand By Me as well as TWO original songs, Too Much is Never Enough and I Will Be. So fucking excited. Downloaded them...

Oh god...

What's the only thing worse than Florence and the Machine doing a song for Final Fantasy? Florence and the Machine doing THREE songs for Final Fantasy.

What's wrong with Florence + the Machine? I'm not familiar with her oeuvre, but that Stand by Me cover was just divine.

Her OTT total lack of subtelty vocals have never sat well with me, and I find her music bland. Stand By Me is a wonderful song and she just takes a sledgehammer to it. The fact she's well loved by people who otherwise have decent taste just makes it even more baffling.

You're wrong, Florence is amazing. This is amazing news!

The only criticism I can think of about Flo is that she's incredibly pitchy. But I think in a way it adds to her charm, as her voice actually sounds real and not autotuned to fuck like every other artist out there.

She's amazing.

Having seen her live, I have to say she's an amazing performer. This is mixing two of my favourite things!

I'm an old fogey when it comes to my Final Fantasy songs. I'd much rather take a Suteki da Ne over something re-purposed from elsewhere. Heck, I'd take 1000 Words feat. JADE from Sweetbox because at least that's an original creation for the game.

Having said that, at least the songs are pretty good. And I like the orchestrations, they make it work much better with Final Fantasy. Still though, I can't imagine we're going to have a dozen of tracks from the OST based around the melody of Florence and the Machine's 'Stand By Me,' and it's that integration with the game and story that made Eyes On Me, Melodies of Life, Suteki da Ne so powerful.

I like all three songs and have to say that I think Florence is an impressive singer.

Bought it and I'm a pretty big fan.

Flo is that singer that you either REALLY LOVE or REALLY DESPISE. There is no in-between.
