Format: Audio CD
Describing Third Eye Foundation to someone who hasn't heard them is a tricky thing to attempt - they have a quite specific atmosphere created by mixing unusual electronic drums, high-pitched voices taken from Vietnamese and Egyptian recordings, and other stretched and droning sounds which are difficult to pick out from each other or determine the origin of - and when combined together in these gradually shifting webs of sound, they create an ambience whose subtleties are hard to describe in words. The result is something chilling, misty, moon-like; something gloomy and edgy.

Third Eye Foundation's beats, which draw on what I would call breakbeat or jungle style, are easily my favourite of any electronic music I've heard, and would appeal to anyone who likes the complexity of Aphex Twin but dislikes the kind of plasticky, drum-machine sound of most electronic beats - the beats here have a quite organic sound to them. The beats are extremely subtle and give the album a mood of seriousness, as opposed to the dancey or funky feel that many programmed drums have.

Ultimately, the album's title probably describes Third Eye Foundation's film-soundtrack sound best - it is quite ghostly music. It's an odd combination of old recordings and futuristic music, which conjure up the image of a melancholic alien lifeform sitting on a cold planet somewhere in space. Because of the beats and guitar drones it's an extremely cool-sounding album, but more music for an art gallery than for a disco; a lot of people would find this tough to get round their head. I like it, but it doesn't come across as instantly appealing. Perhaps in the year 3000, this will be the kind of music that people will be listening to.

This is one of my favourite late-night albums, with an absorbing, melancholy and sometimes uncomfortable atmosphere. 'Ghost' has a rougher texture than Third Eye Foundation's later releases - the sound is grainy and organic, even where the arrangements are sparse, because every instrument is made from pitch-shifted samples with their own internal rhythms and harmonies. Matt Elliott layers squeaking hinges and wandering clarinet lines on top of rattling drums to create beautifully bleak and lonely soundscapes. If you ever go for walks in the middle of the night, take this album with you.

Spectral and bizarre 28 Mar. 2002
By Jason Robey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Ghost" is dark insanity, haunted schizo-chill, ground-crumbling cemetery wax, rusted chain nightmares, electrified spirit trails, and all other such forms of twisted horror-show oddity. It's an amalgam of detuned strings, sinister drum 'n bass loops, and bizarre samples that at times resemble howling wolves, mumbling spirits, screaming banshees, and buzzing flies. "Ghost" won't flow easily into most ears.
This is the kind of album to turn the lights down for, with only a candle or two flickering in the empty pitch, prepared to follow the Third Eye down the blackened pathways of the mind.
The album starts fast with "What to Do But Cry?" and "Corpses as Bedmates," my favorite tracks. The tribal drums on "Cry" guide the ears past moaning beasts (what is that sound?) and chanting wraiths that seem to be speaking from the other side of the grave. Seriously. Listen to it! "Corpses" evokes the title of the album like no other song on here. Skeletal trees blowing in the wind, frenzied ghosts shrieking and circling, and a wicked drum loop to ignite the whole platter and make it dance. "Corpses" evokes images of "Fantasia's 'A Night on Bald Mountain,'" when the dead rise at the devil's behest for a grim fandango.
The album slows down a bit after these two stellar tracks. "The Star's Gone Out" sounds like rusted metal scraping and oscillating. "The Out Sound From Way In" is... I don't even know - it's just weird and fractured, but in a good way.
I won't try to describe the final three tracks, except to say that "Ghosts" and "Donald Crowhurst" bring the mood down slowly to an almost gentle throbbing. If you have the album set to repeat, like I often do, track 1 will sound like it's from a different planet, but the progression from 1 to 7 makes total sense nonetheless.
How cool are these song titles by the way? "Corpses as Bedmates," "The Out Sound From Way In," and "I've Seen the Light and It's Dark" are compelling titles in and of themselves. It makes me wonder what the album would have been like if Matt Elliot had penned some lyrics.
I shudder.

a disturbing lo-fi horror show 6 Feb. 2000
By Bryan O'Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Ghost" was the first Third Eye Foundation album I picked up, on a whim at one of my local record stores. When I first listened to it, I was shocked: this is not your typical clean, samey drum-and-bass outing. It's more like an edgy electronic soundtrack to the apocalypse.
The rhythms of Ghost are crumpled and thrashed but familiar; the harsh screaming melodies that overlay them guarantee that you won't have an easy time playing this album as background music. It insistently demands your attention and makes your skin crawl even as you tap your foot.
The overwhelming impression of this album is of devastation and paranoia, and it is just beautifully evocative. It makes a fine back-to-back combination with anything by Canada's Godspeed You Black Emperor.
Unless you know that you like harsh and creepy electronic music, you ought to think about giving this album a listen or five before you buy it. It won't grow on you; it will tunnel inside.

Best TEF Album as a Whole 6 July 2000
By Nathan K. Rockswold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ghost was the first and the best album I've purchased of TEF's. This is not your regular day-to-day drum-machine, turntable, dance music. This album is different, very different (as is all TEF albums.) But Ghost, especially, layers it's waves with samples you have to listen to 15 times before being able to discern them between a wolf howling or a door squeeking shut, etc. Texture, is the key word for the album Ghost. The sounds that flow out of your speakers ARE INTERESTING. That's what puts this album, and all TEF albums, on the map for me. Sure, it is somewhat haunting, and beyond that, it is also dense and intricate, pleasantly disturbing to the ear and mind. The album as a whole is brought together perfectly, starting on top of the climax, slowly coming down, until finally scraping somewhere against the floor. Each track flows very well into the next, and each track is as interesting as the last. You Guys Kill Me doesn't have that flow, though the individual tracks are well done. And Semtex is somewhat a disappointment compared to this album (save the 1st track.) Get Ghost if you haven't already and especially if you are interested in SOUND.

Brilliant 3 Jan. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Matt Elliott totally changed his sound from his TEF debut Semtex with this one. It stands as one of the best electronic albums of the decade, a statement I normally would hesitate to make. Not here. Fans of Flying Saucer Attack will be familiar with the swirling guitar/feedback sounds, but the similarities end there. Elliott has introduced canned breakbeat loops and lo-fi beats into the mix, but the dominating mood is not a dance vibe but rather a morose, dreary gloom. This is powerful stuff, never quite paralleled by the followup, You Guys Kill Me.

fantasmas personales 7 Sept. 2001
By "frakiliprulil" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Posiblemente, uno de los discos mas completos que he adquirido.
primero, no quiero clasificarlo con la palabra completo,ya que es demasiado comprometedora.
Aun asì, este disco contiene un trabajo en LO-FI, que promete ser uno de los exponentes mas importantes en un tiempo considerable, para los amantes de la música electrónica y sus ramas extendidas.
The third eye foundation,logra con gran genialidad, el poder construir un disco negro, cargado de hermosas melodìas (casi tìpico por parte de ellos), con una visión demasiado amplia de la composición y LOOPS increiblemente colocados, en ritmos desesperantes, temas largos con mezclas entre, drum n'bass cortados y de tiempos cortos, que al final nos parece interminable.. de bueno o malo para otros.
Podrìa decir tambien, que es un disco ambiental (y no para cualquier ambiente)pero si logras ubicarlo en un contexto especìfico con otras mezclas y puedes hacer otra cosa con el que suene mejor, de seguro lo encontraras.
Ghost, queda comprendido, como un disco concebido a un nivel mayor de presonalidad musical, sin desprestigiar su nuevo trabajo, casi reciente ( I POO POO IN YOUR JUJU ), que no tengo palabras en este moento para explicar como han evolucionado en todo este tiempo,pero considero este ghost como un logro inmenso y controlado de las emociones musicales y de los campos mas vanguardistas que existen en este momento. GHOST es un disco inteligente.
Esta fundación, pretende estar en un nivel superior y lo estan!
1.FANTASMAS
Los fantasmas de este disco,estan en nosotros.solo trata de sacarlos desde lo mas profundo, de nuestros cuartos o refugios, para evolucionar tal vez? o tambien ayudarnos a enfrentar los miedos?, porque cuando enfrentamos nuestros mayores miedos, experimentamos poderes especiales que ignoramos.Personalmente este trabajo (ghost), me inspira mucha confianza,en mis
sentimientos, labores y en mi desarrollo personal, ghost, es un disco cargado de EGO que es verdaderamente lo que debemos aprender a utilizar.
The third eye foundation, es un filtro de energìas.tu estas lleno de fantasmas, entonces vencelos, y evoluciona.
GHOST es un disco espiritual!
