  1. Ghosts skirts its predecessor's instrumental self-indulgence, allowing its tracks to swim in grandeur--but not drown.
  2. The Five Ghosts is the band's most consistent album yet, and their best since 2005's "Set Yourself On Fire."

    The Drowned In Sound critic who reviewed this album woke up in a very bad day. It's not great but certainly didn't deserve such a negative review. Every track flow perfectly, although it lacks some substance sometimes. But it's very pleasent to listen to. And "Wasted daylight" is cute! Full Review »
