  • Summary: One of three releases out on the same day by the alternative country rock artist, this two-disc set tilts more toward country than rock and roll.

    Williams made some pretty great records during his tenure at Curb, but Ghost to a Ghost/Gutter Town suggests that he's only just begun to showcase his apparently boundless creativity and breadth of his artistic vision.

    Ghost to a Ghost/Gutter Town is easily the purest expression of Hank3's crazed country vision to date, and anyone who's followed his wild ride owes it to themselves to give it a listen.

    The country double Ghost to a Ghost/Gutter Town, is the best and it's not un-experimental. [Nov 2011, p.84]

    Ghost to a Ghost proves to be the most accessible release of the bunch, while serving as an effective palette cleanser for the strange ambiance of Guttertown.

    Ghost... has most of the more straightforward roots songs... Guttertown mostly contains the weirder stuff. [Dec. 2011 p. 97]

    Of the lot, the best is Ghost to a Ghost/Gutter Town, an unruly ragbag containing everything from mean-eyed industrial hoedowns to ambient drones to a bleary gypsy waltz featuring Tom Waits.

    Hank III is as prolific as he is good. I liken this to old A side and B side albums. The first half is very good, solid country music. It's lively, it's thoughtful and it stomps. The other half is something new. If Tom Waits would produce an old Hank Williams album, it might sound like this. The texturing, the layers, all the orchestration, it oozes style, vibe and...I can't really shower this effort with enough good words. Expand
