VIMTV Album Review #415: Florence + The Machine – Ceremonials
Jake: Not Really Recommended, 66/100
Tom: Not Really Recommended, 64/100
Verdict: A fairly weak and overproduced sophomore album.
Overview: While Ceremonials is in general a much darker album than Florence + The Machine’s debut, a lot of that mood is stifled by the grandiose production. Also, nearly all the tracks are a bit too long, and the record as a whole gets pretty stale midway through. Florence still delivers some highly impressive vocals, but it doesn’t quite save Ceremonials from being lackluster overall.
