Spin (p.67) - "[Welch is] a bloodied, bloodying songbird in a gilded cage of immaculately crafted, slow-burn, chest-beating empowerment anthems, gripping steel bars that her elegantly volcanic voice could shred at any moment."
Entertainment Weekly (p.74) - "[A] confident, unflinching tour de force....CEREMONIALS genuinely rocks..." -- Grade: A
Entertainment Weekly (p.100) - Ranked #5 in Entertainment Weekly's 'The Top 10 Albums Of 2011' -- "A big believer in Red Sea-parting melodrama, she's got the orchestral grandeur to pull it off."
