5.0 out of 5 stars Pale Green Greatness, 14 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pale Green Ghosts (Audio CD)
A stunning second album follows a great first album. With less of a 'warm' sound then his debut, John Grant comes back with an electronic palette. The title track opens the album, setting a high benchmark, putting pulsating synths and beats to their most eerie use ever. Grant has no trouble maintaining the high standard - the beautiful GMF and It Doesn't Matter To Him evolve the sound of Grant's debut effectively - but it is the unfamiliar tracks that warrant special praise here. Sensitive New Age Guy and Ernest Borgnine are similarly electronic but stun in completely different ways, while Glacier's luscious balladry carries considerable emotional heft. The standout track (of an album bursting with high points) is the incredible Why Don't You Love Me Anymore, which combines a hard electronic edge with Grant's rich tenor voice and effortlessly moving melody-writing ability.

Present throughout is John Grant's trademark lyrical mix of humour and bitterness - set once again to stunning music, with much for old fans to love while developing in new directions. A must-listen, and a must-buy.
