2 stars After hearing good things about this album I finally bought it to see what all the fuss was about. The album kicks off with a short piece 'Prelude', nice but only ok. 'The human element' has some nice lyrics and interesting sections but seems to lack any real substance. 'Consequences' is next, and for me is far better. Long, interesting and powerful. Track 4 'No words' can only be described as forgettable, by far the weakest point on an already average album. The next is the title track 'English ghosts' which is at times great but I feel is stretched out way too long. Maybe by 5 or 6 minutes. Next up is 'Motion' which I think is the best track on the album. Seems to be about evolution. Some wonderful lyrics and beautiful guitar work. 'The road goes ever on' contains smatterings of Yes, but unfortunately only the commercial 90125, Big Generator era Yes. Finally is an instrumental 'Coda' which is basically a few minutes of widdly guitar soloing, very nice but thats about it. Not a great production, a weak vocalist and average songs. All in all, a bit of a let down for me.
