5.0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly Good 6 Oct 2011
By Mennis
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I took a bit of a punt on this, I hadnt heard any of thier stuff it was all based on a Pitchfork review. Well it was a gamble that paid off. The album is rich and diverse with occasional shades of Pink Floyd.

Its always nice to be suprised by an album and this ione did just that. From the nice gentle beginning of Honey Bunny it goes onto be a rich and expansive album. Well worth a punt!

4.0 out of 5 stars A surprise hit 13 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD
After being rather bemused by their first album, a ramshackle low-fi affair, which I disliked on first hearing but have slowly warmed to, I hadn't anticipated having much interest in their subsequent work. I find myself REALLY liking this album - again, its a fairly disparate collection from catchy pop hooks to J Mascis inspired effects pedal work outs (and the beginning of 'Die' is straight from Wolfmother) but this only adds to its attractions. The production is more full on this album and this helps the songs to breathe. I'll be grooving to this for a while.

5.0 out of 5 stars Father, Son, Holy Ghost 17 Feb 2012
By Blix
Format:Audio CD
Girls 2nd full album 'Father, Son, Holy Ghost' is the best album I have heard in the last 5 years or so. Though often accused of having no definable sound, other than that of 'indie band' Girls do embrace different genres and styles on a regular basis, particularly on this album with nods to Thrash, Country n' Western, Rock n' Roll, Pop, Accoustic, Gospel etc and the mini-album 'Broken Dreams Club' with it's Latin horn influences BUT it is exactly this quality that make them such a musically brilliant and interesting band who seem to refuse to be pigeon holed into any genres. In Christopher Owen, Girls have the most gifted song-writer of this generation whose lyrics and voice are full of pain but equally hope. Many of Girls songs begin with loss, heartache, regret, sadness etc but mid-way through they often take on an almost 2nd song quality which is hopeful, accepting, forgiving and optimistic that change will occur for the better. Quite simply this is an amazing album from the best and most interesting band in the world at the moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Girls - The Holy Trinity 6 Jan 2012
Format:MP3 Download
Holding out for Christmas presents may make economic sense but in the case of "Father, Son, Holy Ghost" by the remarkable "Girls" it amounted to a prolonged form of musical torture. Listening to this album almost constantly for the past week confirms one of the great unheralded albums of 2011 with enough variety, charm and innovation to make other contenders seem woefully shallow and painfully inadequate. In one sense no surprises here for their brilliant debut "Album" (see separate review) was a blast of spaced out joyousness not least containing two of the best songs of the past decade "Hellhole rat race" and the irresistible exuberance of "Lust for life".

At the time their resident genius Christopher Owens told Uncut that "it could have been "Pet Sounds" if they had decent equipment to record it on". In one sense it's a nice bit of bravado, but in another Owen is travelling a path within the 54 minute boundaries of "Father, son and holy ghost" which is almost peerless on the current rock music scene with a scale of ambition which is admirable and almost obscene. Equally the musical step up from their debut is huge and you wish that whatever source of inspiration Owens is drinking from that he would buy a round for some other bands far less blessed. Listen to the great folk gospel single "Vomit" and its starts off evoking Radiohead of the era of OK Computer but by the end almost reprises "The great gig in the sky" with a Clare Torry style fade out. It's a superb song although matched by the gently boiling melancholia of the nearly 8 minute long "Forgiveness" one of the loveliest drifting songs you will have heard in a long while which builds to a great climax and instant recourse to the repeat button.

This is how modern music should be produced and sound. Quality music with a fantastic eclectic mix of styles and influences. Needs several listens to fully appreciate its diversity and beauty. A lesson for the music industry at large! Audiophiles and music lovers can buy with complete confidence.
