Superb Songwriting, 30 Aug. 2007
I bought this album on the strength of their highlight performance at V, and it is really very good, especially from the songwriting point of view. There are very few bands who can pull off the feat of crafting accessible songs which also have enough complexity to make them interesting, but Ghosts make it look easy. It's not just the singles either; there's hardly any weakness in here. My only criticism is that the band's live sound seems toned-down in the recording, with the keyboards rather than the guitar to the fore, and it very occasionally descends a little too far into 80's Kajagoogoo synth-pop for my liking. Still thoroughly recommended though.
