CRITIC REVIEWS

90
AllMusic

That rare sophomore outing that not only manages to avoid the slump, but bests its predecessor in the process.

80
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.

The goddess creating a new testament.

Pound the drums, pluck the harp! Florence is here, and she's here to stay. The band's sophomore effort transcends further into a magical euphoria, with grandiose arrangements and Welch's remarkable voice belting out their best lyrics yet. This is a must for all baroque listeners. Florence is a legend in the making, and Ceremonials is a testament.

So "oh" recommended me Florence + The Machine's discography, and gave this a 100... The pressure is real.
If it helps "Never Let Me Go" sounds really solid, and I do think the album is well-produced, but I definitely expected more from this, you know. Florence's vocals are really good, but just like Taeyeon's OSTs, it doesn't prevent the songs from being close to sleep-inducing.
