Product Description

When Animals Stare' is the stunning second album from the illusive duo of Theo Keating and Simon Lord. An album that warms the soul and rejuvenates the body and spirit. Simon s delicate writing and stunning voice accompanied by Theo s subtle, lo-fi, hip hop, dub and electro influenced productions, make this indie-pop, electro-folk-tech longplayer quite a listen.

Format: Audio CD
The Black Ghosts are Theo Keating and Simon Lord and their new
album 'Where Animals Stare' is as fine a collection of electronic
pop as I have heard in the past five years. It really is THAT good!

These are strong tunes; soulful, richly textured and memorable.
There are eleven songs in the set, each as good as one another.
Mr Lord is the principal writer and his voice is simply beautiful.
(He owns a pitch-perfect high tenor with a sumptuous falsetto).
Mr Keating's production skills brings the music to sparkling life.

I have listened carefully and have struggled to make comparisons
with other performers inhabiting a similar generic sphere. The
Black Ghosts have a truly distinctive style all their own.
The sheer musicality of the compositions demonstrates that the duo
share an intelligence and sensibility rare in dance-oriented pop.
The marriage of technique (and technology) with lyrical finesse is
heart-warming. Man and machines working together in perfect harmony.

Opening track 'Water Will Find A Way' kicks things into play with
a delicious quasi-orchestral arrangement which teases with its charming
"easy listening" string flourishes and elephantine plodding tuba-like
bass synth line. Mr Lord sings the melody with conviction and feeling.

'Walking On The Moon' is another cracking song. (It has something of a
Boz Scaggs sense of swagger and elan about it). Scintillating electro-soul.
The playful staccato latin rhythm of 'Sanguinella', with its warmly
layered vocal harmonies, frames yet another stunning vocal performance.

Format: Audio CD
Having been a big fan of Theo Keating from the early days of DJ Touche and spending many a grimey night giving it portions to him and his more recent alias as Fake Blood I was pretty excited when he paired up with Simon Lord to present the Black Ghosts. The Mixtape of 2008 was slightly different to theo's sets and succesfully fused electronic music with a high tempo, an occasional pop melody and the trademark dark influence haunting the tracks.

Therefore I snapped up there new release 'When animals stare' when it was released, especially after reading a review in Mixmag, which called it "beyond brilliant" and the review posted before this one, which I must admit does sound like it was written by Simon Lord himself with a little assistance from Stephen Fry! After listening the first time these reviews distinctly reminded me of when a two year old child does a painting and a group of so-called art expert critics lavish misplaced praise upon the genius of the creator. After a couple of listens some of the songs are a little catchy and the beats are ok but I just cannot look through the pimarily cheesy and annoying vocals that are totally irrelevelant and far from genius. Every track is centered around these vocals, which include lines such as "dead computers dancing in the rain", "insulin instint memory beer bottle" and "Love peace suicide pizza". Absolute nonsense. Although Lord does admittedly have a good voice, they totally ruin the tracks and as if you need to be reminded by the absurdity of these lyrics they have printed them on the inside cover!

I very rarely write reviews (as you maybe able to tell!) and I would not place my musical opinions higher than those of Mixmag but am just letting people know that if you are fan of their previous work you will most probably not enjoy this pretentious new offering. Seems to me as instead of pushing new boundaries and harnessing the obvious talent these guys share, they are creatively going backwards.

this album may not have the dance and beat of their first but is still a good sophmore effort.

The Black Ghosts debut album is one of my favorite records of all time, and I am very pleased the duo have decided to continue their collaboration. This album is a more subdued and chill affair than the first album, but still has the unique combination of voice and grooves that make the Black Ghosts so distinct. Check out some of their compilation tracks, too, like the recent "All is Love" (also available on Amazon MP3).
