4 stars The first thing I want to say is that Ghost has one of the most beautiful covers I've seen and fits the music perfectly. The slipcase is also a pleasure to behold. Now onto what is contained in the album. At first I didn't really care for this album, being much more inclined to Devin's heavier works. I loved Ki, but this was far from that level of intensity as well. This is not an album to pop in while cruising with your friends and blast out your windows (though I would enjoy it just for the oddity of it). It has a very very laid back atmospheric feel, and is super relaxing. I get tired easily while driving so this is not a good album for driving in the car to me. It could do well as background music, but if you want to just stare out the window and relax in your favorite chair, this is a great album for that. I have a preference for the shorter tracks on this one, Texada being the exception. I also really like the beginning Feather which sounds similar to Devy's Ih-Ah, though the rest seems to drift a little too much for my taste. Blackberry, Texada, and Kawaii are my favorite tracks. I would definitely recommend this album more to those who like the mellow side of Devin as that's what you'll get and nothing remotely heavy. I haven't listened to much music in this style but it has opened up my ears, and if you're looking for something fresh check this out!
