    She was brilliant. Loved the finale of Rapture and her I Won't Change You bit was fab.

    She's very likeable and such a strong performer.

    I love that video... The rollers, the gentle shape throwing, the magnificent side eye. :disco:

    "Death of Love" is really special. Is the rest of the album worthwhile?

    Death of Love is one of the best songs she's ever recorded. Familia is a fab album too though not instant. I was initially underwhelmed but it grows a lot.

    "Death Of Love" is the standout for the album for me.

    And yes, she was incredible live. The crowd was REALLY middle aged (ie- my age :D) and straight, which surprised me compared to the times I've seen her before. Love her "end of night acoustic at the sound desk" schtick too...

    I forgot what a TUNE that song is.

    :D at her serious spoken interlude though. “It’s true guys, anyone can, it’s keeping it going”

    How wonderful.

    I find it hard to get excited about the orchestral GH she has in the works, but she remains a joy.

    Exactly this. I just don't understand where in her fanbase she thinks this is a great idea. I'll bite, just because it's her, of course...

    With child YET AGAIN. We'll never get this orchestral business out of the way.

    Yes you would have thought they might have had enough of each other by this point.

    Sophie's womb clearly cannot be appeased.
