Album Review: Ceremonials by Florence + The Machine

I can't quite put my finger on it, but there is something off about this album. At 12 tracks it feels like 24 as it just seems to go on and on. There isn't any track that stands out and honestly from one listen to the next I don't remember anything about the album. Florence Welch has a strong voice, but I'm not convinced she's a good singer as every song just seems to be too much. Too much her, too much with the instruments, just too much.

Following the Rhapsody rating method I give it 1 out of 5 stars for Just OK.


  1. This song sounds a good bit like a certain cut of alternative music from the late 1980s and '90s where the female vocalist always sounded really smart and beautiful and interesting to me--but I never actually paid a lick of attention to the lyrics.

    I liked this song a good bit.

  2. I bet these people could do a great cover of "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)."
