It's made to be secured to a 90 degree application, sitting tight to both surfaces. Applied to a sloped ceiling would require some blocking behind it unless you were laying it flat on the surface.

The wall and the ceiling are at 90 degrees, except the right side of the picture. Making the transition up the roof slope should be fun. It's the transitions in planes that will give you pause.
The standard installs at the 90 degree places will kick out from the wall much more then where the sloped ceiling contacts the wall.
The trick will be to make a smooth transition as you go up the wall.
