Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Session musicians are often thought of as jobbing musicians without any vision of their own. However in , Interview with the Angel, Ghostland prove with their second album that there is often more grace and charm, purity and soul in the anonymous backroom boys than their more famous paymasters. Between the three members they have worked with everyone from Oasis to Bjork, Peter Gabriel to Simply Red yet Interview with the Angel easily holds its own against these competitors. A beautiful, spiritual, haunting and ethereal album it ebbs and flows its way through intelligent pop, New Age atmospherics, Celtic dreams and the sparse symphonics of composers such as Gorecki. While tracks such as "Sacred Touch Of Beauty", "Faith In Love" and "Angel Eyes" (featuring Sinead O'Connor) are relatively conventional pop songs in the vein of Sarah McLachlan or Natalie Imbruglia it's the drifting string pieces like "Calming the Sea" or the cinematic title track, with its Hans Zimmer flourishes that really stand out. The real highlight though is "The Kiss" which combines the aural soundscapes of Enya with the chiming otherworldliness of This Mortal Coil to create a gentle and warm embrace. --William Luff

Session musicians so often carry bands who lack there own individual sound, and so try to create their own image by slapping a string section over their tracks.
It often works, so what can the session musicians do on their own?. Quite simply, THIS:.
Ghostland's Interview with the Angel is a haunting, inspiring album, that starts brightly and gets better.
The title track sends shivers down my spine just thinking about it. Sinead O'Conner comes in the lend a hand on the more poppy "Angel Eyes", and it is a welcome change of pace.
But this albums greatest strenghs lie in its invention and the cinematic strings used throughout. It is dreamy, and for anyone looking to experiment, and hear what the session musicians sound like without the burden of the likes of Oasis, take a look.
A gem.

After Ghostland's haunting debut eponymous album, came this piece of sublime beauty. This is not a collection of songs with an added string section; these are first and foremost orchestral string compositions, some of which have added voices and other instruments. It's closer to a film score in mood than a conventional album. Apart from the more "pop" oriented tracks Faith in Love and Sacred Touch of Beauty, the remainder of the album is extraordinarily moving and sensitively played. This is some of my favourite music ever.

And yet Ghostland don't even have a page on Wikipedia. What is going on? Maybe this falls into that lost category of music between "serious classical" and "pop", that no-one seems to know what to do with. A great, great shame. This is a true masterpiece.

I heard the instrumental track Calming the Sea on a compilation so bought the album. There are some more lovely instrumental tracks with lush strings and gentle rhythms, but more than half of the album is given over to songs. Most of these are a bit too pop for my taste but the quality of the production and playing is very high.

Ghostland are John Reynolds,Caroline Dale (who made her own album) and Justin Adams.
They use various guests all girl singers such as Cara Dillon,Jane Siberry,Lucinda Drayton and Sinead O'Connor (who I could well do without)
The CD I have is a promo copy and has no writer info or in fact any info apart from the lineup.It has a different sleeve of a forest
If you like Hector Zazou's Lights in the Dark or the Equation or Cara Diillon's solo work then you would love this album

Outstanding album - can't recommend enough. Hauntingly beautiful from start to finish. Good to lose myself in when travelling home on the commuter train with ipod plugged in. Pick of the tracks being In Your Light, but closely followed by all others!
