Only just recently got into Cherry Ghost after seeing them support Doves in Bradford. Bought their 1st album the very next day and loved that and was eagerly awaiting the release of 'Beneath The Burning Shoreline'. I was not disappointed. It is an excellent album with numerous stand out tracks. 'We Sleep On Stones', 'A Month Of Mornings' and 'Kissing Strangers' being the highlights. Basically if you liked the 1st one, this one is just as good.

Will hopefully try and catch them live at some point.

this follow up to 'thirst for romance' is immaculate and gently addictive. simon aldred and his band of friends have again created an atmospheric collection of late night laments and torch songs for the lonely and disposessed, which is coloured by the addtion of mournful trumpets, mariachi rhythms and delicious tempo changes.

like elbow, their geographical neighbours, they perfectly convey a sense of longing, blistering melancholy, sparkling with imaginative arrangements and pure poetry instead of simple lyrics.

this is the sound of darkness receding, dawn approaching, renewed hope. this album will stay with you, fire your memories, keep you warm. embrace this.

Credit where its due beneath the burning shoreline contains some seriously good music , each track is mesmerising , a very generous thirteen tracks too and not one misses a beat , i enjoyed cherry ghosts last album and didn,t think it could be bettered but beneath the burning shoreline is equally as wonderful , its nice to find music you want to hear over and over again and sends a tingle down your spine , check it out for yourself , highly recommended .

Of the Cherry Ghost albums, this one is possibly the most in depth of the lot. Really strong offering with the characteristic beautiful lyrics and stirring melodies. Straight out the game with "We sleep on stones", a really progressive track that keeps you hooked. And "Kissing strangers" is a really light and flourish-filled track. And "My God betrays" is possibly the stand out. Really hard song, but has to be heard.

A recent convert to the band after hearing the single Kissing Strangers on the radio. Bought this and ordered the debut album within 15 mins of first listen! Reminds me of Richard Hawleys sound with maybe Ian MacCuloch singing (no bad combination). Dark but beautiful atmospheres on the songs and clever lyrics. If you like a melody and great songcraft, this is a no brainer.

Had this CD given to me years ago and it languished unheard since then, lost in the alphabetically correct world which is my CD collection (how old fashioned!). A flash of boundless boredom was enough for me to break the cellophane and sit down to listen and what a revelation. I have been harbouring a gem. It is nothing short of sensational. Buy it.

If you buy one album in 2010 make it this one.
It has everything.Songwriting talent like this does not come along very often.Deep lyrics,melody,production,arrangements,strings,guitar and a voice to die for.This recording will not be matched for a very long time..More...more,more.I have not stopped playing it.

Such a good album though so invisible - classy but populist, surely deserves a mass audience. And proves that a classic set-up can still be fresh. On a par with the best of the National.

Barberini Square! And what a voice. A work of lyricism and poetry. For my ears not quite "Thirst for Romance" (his previous album), but then, what is?
