Ceremonials (Bonus Tracks)

Ceremonials by Florence & The Machine
Released: Nov 2011
Label: Universal Records
After blowing up with debut Lungs, Florence Welch holds nothing back on Ceremonials. Every song has a similar setup: Welch tiptoes in like it's a haunted house -- quietly, innocently, almost tentatively -- before she bursts through, a reckless siren of Kate Bush descent, boldly battling with rolling piano, huge bass, glistening strings and choral echoes. She works the romantic drama with gut-twisting grandiosity like fellow Brit belter Adele trapped in some sort of Transylvanian echo chamber. This is the kind of woman who will haunt your dreams -- and you can't help but like it.
