Nice album cover, but not as interesting as Mylo Xyloto's cover design. The songs however, sound a lot better than Mylo Xyloto! Love love love her voice, definitely one of the more unique voices in the music industry now.
Ceremonials does not disappoint, Florence Welch has produced a very haunting album indeed, with some very well-crafted songs, but is it better than Lungs/Between Two Lungs? I really can't say that it is, mostly because I find the songs from both albums very ethereal and dramatic, which is something that I'm fond of.
To sum it up, I think she did a great job on her sophomore album, so all hail Florence Welch! *worships*
Overall: Must listen if you love indie-folk music! 9/10
Recommended: Shake It Out, What The Water Gave Me, Never Let Me Go, Spectrum, Leave My Body, Strangeness and Charm, Heartlines (Acoustic version)
Coming up (for real this time): Kelly Clarkson's Stronger
P.S: Oh i forgot - Happy Halloween y'all.
