    For a supergroup involving this many individuals from this many bands, Lightbody's presence is the most felt. Not such a bad thing, but you have to use your imagination to differentiate this from a Snow Patrol effort. The bits of "country" and "Americana" are so timid and restrained you wonder why they bothered, but overall this is a very fresh, pretty album. Probably has a lot of replay value.

    The bulk of the album feels much more controlled, and though it's technically accomplished record--as well it might be given the lineup--there's more brain than heart in the final mix. [No. 104, p.60]

    Happily, The Ghost of the Mountain succeeds in every respect, an album that sounds like the product of a group rather than simply a collaboration between like-minded associates.

    If you’re looking for good, occasionally great, mature music about facing the end, The Ghost of the Mountain is a damn fine choice.
