A music blog dedicated to metal, rock, electronica and more. I mostly do reviews of underground music as those artists need more promotion. However, I won't hesitate to review mainstream stuff as well. Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. Hope you enjoy it.
P.S. Sorry but NO LINKS and NO SAMPLES. ONLY REVIEWS. I don't want to risk having my blog taken down. Thanks.
Sam Beam continues to branch further away from his folk roots and really shows how versatile a songwriter he is on this album. The influences here range from jazz to pop to funk to soul, but somehow it all blends to make a coherent and beautiful collection of songs. In fact, that's one of the things I really admire about him. He's not afraid to experiment with new styles and move out of his comfort zone even if this is a process that takes several albums to fully achieve. While this is definitely not my favorite of his, "Ghost on Ghost" does contain some potentially classic Iron and Wine songs such as "Caught in the Briars," "Low Light Buddy of Mine," and "Baby Center Stage." In all, this is another high quality release from a very high quality artist and will hopefully pull in even more fans who will appreciate Mr. Beam's eclectic musical stylings. 9/10
