CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

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

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.

Despite the calling card single, "Shake It Out", this album feels like a compilation of songs that are too alike for their own good. If it does anything well, Ceremonials showcases Florence Welch's behemoth pipes, a voice that can be heard for miles. However, as her contemporary Adele Adkins has confirmed, you can't carry an album on vocals alone.
