Ghost

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Phil Freeman
The fourth and final volume in a series of releases industrial-metal guitarist/producer Devin Townsend has been working on since 2009, Ghost is the softest, quietest release he's ever been involved with. The dominant instruments are acoustic guitar, synth, and flute, and the vocals are gently crooned rather than screamed or howled.
