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.

A much better than the first album with many more memorable songs with a fascinating voice from Florence Welch and beautiful strings.

'Ceremonials' was a much larger 'Lungs', but without the edge. It doesn't have that same dazzling beauty, going instead for a fuller, more general sound. By anyone else's standards, this is eccentricity personified, but by Florence's standards, it doesn't have that sharpness. Still, songs like 'Only If For A Night', 'What The Water Gave Me', and 'Seven Devils' capture that ghostly spirit. A very strong album.

a voice to die for - solid and classy pop
