    The Ghost in Daylight is ignorable background music and the lowest point of the Gravenhurst discography thus far.

    The Ghost in the Daylight is a thing of great beauty... [yet] sounds dull - perfect, of course, with every note in the right place, but perfectly predictable too, with 10 songs that blend into one long, brooding whole. [No.87 p.55]

    The Ghost In Daylight is a memory-haunted journey through the dead voices and deep narratives of Englands lost; broadside ballads culled from earth and sea. [Jun 2012, p.87]

    Much of this record plays like a tribute to '90s miserabilists Red House Painters, all phantom-like reverb over misleadingly comforting folk tropes.

    These tunes blur together into a woozy, vertiginous haze. [Jun 2012, p.158]

The tracks "The Prize" , "Fitzrovia" and "The Foundry" are more qualitative than the remaining ones, but the entire album deserves to be listened for its unique atmosphere. Full Review »
