What is a lyrical style?

Poetical, I suppose, but then since it's not in verse, what do people mean by poetical?

Easy on the ears?  Smooth, flowing language?

Heavy on the figures of speech?  (Can be problematic for fantastical writing)

Lots of concrete detail?  Especially sensuous detail -- lots of things to see and smell and taste and hear and touch?

I ponder the question.
