    Florence + the Machine's performance deserves its spot in the upper echelon of MTV Unplugged shows.

    She steps up the challenge, revelling in the church-like acoustics and delivering a heart-stopping 'Cosmic Love'. 'Dog Days Are Over' is rendered as fresh and powerful as when you first heard it, rather than the supermarket shopping soundtrack it's now become.

    This chilled-out collection is an easy, pleasant listen, but it is far from an essential purchase for anyone except Florence completists.
  4. 60
    An impressive show, but not one likely to persuade doubters.

    It is her once feral voice, now markedly more controlled, which proves most impressive here. [Jun 2012, p.88]

    It displays the boundlessness of her vocal talent but finds her tethered to a frustratingly limited aesthetic.

    By removing the strident, strange production values of Drumming Song or Cosmic Love, for example, their original appeal is bleached out, and those not enamoured with that Welch wail will find no refuge in this state.
