PopMatters

Elevating their idiosyncratic style to an even grander scale, Ceremonials makes Florence and the Machine’s captivating debut Lungs seem quaint and charming in comparison.

No Ripcord

This new material may be cut from the same cloth as Lungs, but it's missing something that album had.

Drowned in Sound

As a second album, it is perfectly acceptable and there are many aspects of it to admire.

look at her lean on that mirror. look at that album cover. a fucking masterwork by photographer Dong Spongler 3000. so dramatic, my eyes already well like plastic pots in sub-Saharan rain. who DARES disrespect this mistress of such ephemeral beauties as "Shake It Out" and the grandiose - but subversive and inventive "Never Let Me Go". god DAMMIT im crying again. GOD DAMMIT. GOD DAMN THIS ARTIST, FRIG
