Kerrang!Aug 28, 2019What's undeniable is that Ceremony's sixth album is packed with more memorable tunes than many bands can manage in a whole six albums. [31 Aug 2019, p.54]
Aug 28, 2019While Farrar’s restlessness seems authentic, he sometimes gives the impression of someone who’s lost track of himself, barking truths so obvious that they fall flat when said aloud. Still, Spirit World rewards repeat listens, a dense full-length on which a band with an ever-shifting identity finds a firm foothold, at least for now.
Aug 28, 2019Although new listeners may find this brand of new wave revival frivolous in such an oversaturated pool of sound-alikes, longtime fans, or those who listen close enough, will hear a band who has a little more weight beneath the surface than their contemporaries. Songwriting that isn't always complementary, but bold nonetheless.
Aug 28, 2019The album's pretty good -- especially as Relapse loves letting bands do this shoegazey wandering and overall 'finding yourself' schtick -- but with something so deep and filled with portraits of different eras and mentors, it's going to take some time to really say just how good, especially compared to an already profound discography.
Sep 3, 2019Fusing elementary post-punk with a radio friendly pop sheen, In the Spirit World Now represents Ceremony's most accessible collection of songs to date. Which, depending where you sit on the Richter scale of hardcore to post-punk will undoubtedly divide segments of the band's fanbase.
