Deeply disappointed, 13 Nov. 2009
I have been a fan since the days of Simple Things, and am therefore a big fan of the original vocalists, Sia Furler and Sophie Barker. I also thought that Tina Dico and Jose Gonzales both worked well on the second and third albums but the style of Yeah Ghost is so far from what Zero 7 stand for. The chillout/ambient sound has completely gone and they have replaced it with something, perhaps, they thought was more popular. But it's just awful! I can't even think of one track on there that I would say I like. A strange coincidence that Air's "Love 2" has also come out recently - I much prefer and would recommend that. And I also feel like I wasted my money on gig tickets. Their gig on 9th October at the RoundHouse, London was possibly THE worst gig I have ever been to, bar none. So bad, that we left after 30 mins.
Thoroughly disappointed. After waiting three years for the release of the CD, I was really expecting something special, but Yeah Ghost is far from that. Let's hope Sia doesn't disappoint too with whatever she brings out next.
