About this deal

Where Lungs at times felt like pieces of entirely different albums Ceremonials is a cohesive whole: taking the mystical sounding instrumentation of Cosmic Love and Rabbit Heart and the pounding rhythms of Drumming and ramping them up to an even higher level. On her band's second album, it can feel like Florence Welch is simply holding out a single note at top volume for an hour. Ceremonials received generally positive reviews from music critics, who drew comparisons to artists such as Kate Bush, while also praising the instrumentation, Florence Welch's vocals and the production of the songs.

The only time [Welch] and The Machine stray from the formula is the Krautrock- disco motorik of 'Spectrum'; elsewhere, declamatory piano chords and burring organ underpin the banked, soaring vocals that are her trademark".During their North American tour, Florence and the Machine debuted " What the Water Gave Me" at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California, on 12 June 2011. Compared to How Big How Blue and the deluxe edition of Lungs this is probably the best I’ve heard her sound on vinyl, lots of depth, very punchy and for the most part this sounds very clear!
