Best bloody album innit - every track is just flawless imo. My favourite Iron & Wine album by a long shot.

There is a popular trend among some pretty major players - Cat Power, Joan As Police Woman and, most noticeably, Bon Iver - where it would seem that in recent years you can either go smooth or you can go home. And with Ghost On Ghost, Sam Beam too continues what he started on 2007's The Shepherd's Dog and refined four years later on the easy-listening Kiss Each Other Clean.

Trad-folk purists may bemoan the hermetic influence of recording in a professional studio, yet today's Iron & Wine set-up retains the power to surprise if not appease these same few. All the same, Beam's beardy beginnings in South Carolina are but a distant memory as he tackles the dark "Lover's Revolution", which simmers around deconstructed jazz before finding its feet, contorting into a deliciously understated groove with midsection passages of free-form skronk.

The hi-fi trickery required for Beam's multi-tracked choir during barely-there lullaby "Joy" has a certain charm too, while the rather fantastic "Low Light Buddy Of Mine" is buoyed by an entire recording budget's worth of supporting musicians to whom we can attribute sax, piano, peculiar percussive effects, smoky bass and harpsichord - much more under scrutiny to be sure.

Showing the other side of the argument with its simple pedal steel and emotive piano, the uncluttered closer then becomes a best-of-both-worlds showcase as Beam rounds out the production with great washes of warm strings.

Be wary of those who you may put ona pedestal.

Always tread carefully with reviews and critics.
Those that come to praise and those who dismiss too easily.

I went into the purchase with my eyes wide open and my doubts niggling away.

I love Iron and Wine, I have bought every album. Been to see him/them play live, even went to Amsterdam.
Unfortunately, this is a disappointing album at best, not a great album as hoped.

It is not the album of the spring nor will it make it into the summer.
Better things are out there.
Save your cash..

When I first came across this act, I was quite taken with the quirky acoustic noodlings and high harmonies, but thought this sound would need to evolve into something a little meatier. Unfortunately, it still needs to. Nothing has changed, and those harmonies I mentioned are appealing on one song, what I didn't realise was that he was going to do exactly the same on what seems to be every third song or so. Actually, if anything, this album is even blander. He seems to be going for for a late-60s Beach Boys poppy-psychedelia sound, which was ersatz at the time. There are moments when I'm uncomfortably reminded of the likes of Eric Carmen and Richard Marx and other middle of the road warblers. Overall, he's just going in the wrong direction for me. If he has any ambition to stand alongside (or even anywhere slightly behind) the likes of Jackson Browne, Neil Young, Bruce Cockburn, James Taylor etc. he needs to realise that yeah, you should have a recognisable sound, but you need to ring the changes, varying keys and arrangements and to never sit in your comfort zone. Neil Young said something about burning out and rusting. Iron and Wine has to avoid the latter.

I thought Deerhunter Monomania was a real grower but now it just keeps getting better and better with each new play and Iron And Wine Ghost On Ghost was stunning i liked it right away i would say it is a classic .

Wow this album was a gamble because I have never heard of them before but they are amazing! I'm now buying the rest of their music and can't wait!

I love Iron & Wine and have all their albums. The style has changed somewhat on this new one but it's great.

Sam Beam's further explorations in all good things musical continues with a jump back to the early 70s, with possibly a 'radio friendly' and polished album, but that really is a good thing. Hints of Paul Simon, James Taylor et al with elements of soul, jazz and funk along with their alt.country trademark sound, this really is an upbeat, joyous album, that is both colourful and engaging, with particularly impressive brass and strings.
