iTunes Review

The grandaddies of gloom-rock cut loose on a soaring, widescreen return that sees them broaden their sepulchral sonic palette in style. Produced by My Bloody Valentine collaborator Allan Moulder, Ritual encompasses everything from chugging Americana on “Strangers” to the cathedral of pulsing power pop that is “The Power and the Glory”. Then there’s “Bigger Than Us”—a fittingly colossal, stadium-ready blockbuster borne on chiming guitars and Harry McVeigh’s hefty vocal.

Customer Reviews

Stunning, Chilling... Essential

If you like music, get this.
Ok.... if you like Editors or Interpol, or any twist on the regular alt rock formula you need to check out this band. Their first album "To lose my life" was flawless and this album comes very close.
The samples wont do it.... the songs, nay, the album as a whole has to be listened to and appreciated as a whole. It brings you through so many views on emotions, thoughtful lyrics but ambiguous enough to create for yourself a meaningful connection to the songs. Driving guitar explodes from nowhere, crisp drumming throwing you in and out of verse and chorus and round-a-bout again.... I can't describe the feeling. Buy "Is Love" and see what i mean, then get the rest of the album... simply superb.

Almost as Good

Not as good as the briliant debut album but still decent

Perfect... Dark and beautiful.

I completely agree with Nathan. It has so many amazing moments. To Lose My Life was an outstanding achievement. Brilliant!!! This album is a step in a slightly different direction but still has the brilliance of the debut. White Lies you are Gods!

Indeed, the three musicians are so committed to the U.K.'s post-punk scene that they signed with Fiction Records, a Polydor imprint best known for its '80s releases by the Cure and the Associates. While attending school in West London, singer/guitarist Harry McVeigh, bassist/lyricist Charles Cave, and drummer/keyboardist Jack Lawrence-Brown formed the group...
