Describing Florence + The Machine’s “Ceremonials” as a mixture of strangeness and charm would be far too easy.
The album takes what made the band’s 2009 debut, “Lungs” a success, Welch’s billowy voice laid over disenchanted gospel music, and refines it to the point of near-perfection.
“Ceremonials” is bigger, brighter and filled with more melodrama.
