Florence + The Machine - How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

After a four-year absence, Florence is back with her bandmates for their third studio album entitled, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful. After listening to the album, some of the songs that stick out to me are Ship to Wreck and Delilah. If you're a fan of the band's smooth, melodic sounds, then this album will be sure to please.

  • Do people still buy a lot of music? I thought that was slowly dying off as more people streamed from sites like Pandora, R.dio, etc.
  • Yes. People still buy music.
  • I prefer buying music over a Subscriptions. Thats what she said
  • Streaming is the way to go
  • Nah bruh. Nothing like owning. This way you can listen to that song you haven't listened to in a while and you'll still have it vs streaming... In which case they may have taken it down due to contract obligations or whatnot. Though personally, I get 2 in 1 with my grandfathered music pass.
  • To each their own.  Owning MSM is overrated.  I do own a lot of mixtapes from relatively unknown and underground artists I find online.  It is dying off.  Streaming is set to overtake digital sales this year.  http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/03/streaming-music-services-made-more... Most likely what is happening is that people aren't buying everything, because they don't have to like they used to.  People are buying the music they really care about.  Most music that is out there, people do not care about.  It just isn't any good any more.  It isn't inspiring or motivating people like it used to.  But there are always a few good albums tha come out every once in a while that are worth listening to.  Much better enjoyed than relying on the algorythms of some streaming service. So I do both.  I download my music and upload it to Microsoft, and stream it from there. 
  • There's more music out now and available than at any other time in history. If you're not finding what you like then you may need to dig deeper. Besides, what you find "good" or "inspiring" is very different than what someone would call "good" or "inspiring". Our subjective tastes are not not universal. I'm also not relying on an algorithm. I have an XBox Music Pass and subscribe to music, so I have the same listening experience, as if I bought each song or album individually.
    I think streaming threatens radio and subscription threatens individual sales.
  • people who listen to music on the go still buy music. streaming buffers too much when you're underground on the subway or jogging through the park
  • I know I do still so yeah
  • Man, its while since last I heard Major Lazer ... I think it was in GTA IV Balled of Gay Tony
  • I just cant get into his music.
  • Me neither, not my type
  • Run All Night is an 'okay' movie. 5.6/10.
  • Lean On is a good song, but it's been played WAY too much for me to even like it now. I'll check PITM out though.
  • Major lazer influenced beyonce's Who Run The World song. He's an amazing Jamaican technopop guy
  • That song is fkn annoying though. XD
  • The beat is sick however
  • Major Lazer is great! Not for everyone, but I love it!!!
  • i agree, not everyone love it, they're influenced by reggae fusion, lean on is great, i like mø's voice, its weird but lovely, maybe im hypnotized lol
  • I just checked it out and I like it. I'm always looking for new stuff to add to my Spin class playlists.
