Much of the album is frenetic -- full of bodies and larger-than-life. But the muted and downcast moments end up being memorable, tender and affecting.

Florence + The Machine - How Big How Blue How Beautiful

It's not a radical reformation of Welch's style; she hasn't stripped all the ornamentation from her cathedral of sound and become a folky confessional songwriter. But she is resorting less to abstract, lofty imagery and speaking with a more frank immediacy.

For as erudite as it is, though, In Colour doesn't require footnotes to enjoy -- it's first and ­foremost a dance record.

This is an even better album than her last, with more consistency and variety. And Musgraves still excels at chiding Southern tradition.

Despite the bold declarations, beautiful beats and brash imagery, To Pimp a Butterfly is not an announcement, it's a conversation.
