Pop Art Blue
Yeah we are running and how we are running Across the hills in the pop art blue Buzzers fly above the car Circling us as if they knew If I fall down... See the rest of the song lyrics

  1. 80
    While they have been slowly inching in the direction of a purer pop record post-"Simple Things," Binns and Hardaker seem to have finally found their stride.
  2. Filter
    70
    Besides a couple of limp late-album tag-ons, it appears that, for once, the kings of chill-out have gotten downright animated. [Fall 2009, p.96]
  3. The music on Yeah Ghost is still Zero 7-but after a few cans of musical Red Bull.
  4. Uncut
    60
    Album four sees tracks pushing more into more arcane territory, but otherwise we see Zero 7 putting a subtle electronic spin on Elton John, Syreeta, Pentangle and Nick Drake. [Oct 2009, p.123]
  5. Q Magazine
    60
    While 'Pop Art Blue' strays a little close to coffee table pop, it's an absorbing jouney. [Oct 2009, p.119]
  6. Here's hoping that the pleasant-at-best Yeah Ghost is but a wispy, passing apparition, and not a haunting omen for similarly ineffective work in the future.
  7. Under The Radar
    30
    Yeah Ghost is simply too experimental. [Fall 2009, p.74]

Sometimes album aren't really inspired byYeah Ghost is the result of a musical evolution which nowadays not every ear is ready to revel. Sometimes album aren't really inspired by something and just by accident there's an experimental and very fresh result. Expand
