  • Summary: The second full-length album for the Canadian band is the conclusion to a trilogy of albums that began with the debut album The Pink Ghosts and the EPs Blankets and Tin Fist.

    With Klausener diving headlong again into elemental metaphors, No Ghost could easily become Garvey's album of 2010. [Jul 2010, p.94]
  2. No Ghost may initially present itself as one of the prettiest indie-pop albums in recent memory, but its structural depth truly demands and rewards active attention.

    The entirety of No Ghost is filled with poetic verses about the usual triumphs and failures of love, and taken together amounts to an emotionally mature piece of work with a healthy amount of upbeat, exciting tracks to go with it.
  4. No Ghost, for me, ultimately had the effect of calling to mind the past, even as it moved forward in painting a sound that has less to do with getting stuck in your head, and more about lingering in quiet moments as it gradually unspools itself.
  5. There are glimmers, in the various half-ideas that surface throughout No Ghost, of a vision that the band could have taken and run with. Klausener's lyrics can be appealingly morbid.
  6. Uptempo grooves such as Bobcat Gold Wraith may be too workmanlike to build up much momentum, but there are some lovely moments here. [Jul 2010, p.128]
  7. The songs on No Ghost are never less than pretty, though one wishes a few of them had been steered by a stronger melodic compass. [Summer 2010, p76]
