  • Summary: Recorded live in Italy during the Fall of 2000, this eight-song album from Jason Molina (and a full backing band) features five previously unreleased songs. The three familiar tunes include "Tigress" and "Being In Love." The album title translates to "You Come to Me as a Ghost."

  1. Fantasma offers a better introduction to Songs: Ohia than the last couple of proper albums.
  2. Molina and cohorts turn their limited resources into an exercise in compelling minimalism. [#184, p.144]
  3. Performed with a full backing band, which includes guitarist Dan Sullivan from Nad Navillus, Songs: Ohia stretches out on Fantasma, allowing Molina's songs to breathe but never sounding gratuitous, like a slightly subdued Crazy Horse.
  4. Still sounds like the work of someone desperate to gain the approval of the Drag City clique. [#215, p.69]
