Review by Finnforest
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
5 stars Stunning progressive visual document

Without question one of the most original, progressive titles released in 2007. This is an audio and video (cd/dvd) psychedelic event that will blow the minds of anyone interested in avant-garde, psych, or space music. I say music, not rock, because this is not rock and roll. It is experimental sound. Understand this is not a normal concert. It is an event as bizarre as a drug trip, as a UFO light show from '67 London. Total, unfettered improvisation. Here is what went down. The band rented a large warehouse and each member set up their instruments far away from one another. Then they hung these lace curtain dividers up between the members so that they could not make eye contact with one another. The audience was brought in to sit all around the band and the hall was darkened. On the lace curtains were projected images by a "liquid lighting team" and this visual art completely amplifies the mystery of the collective experience happening. Once in place, the doors were closed and the audience not allowed to move until the performance was over. It was really kind of spooky I'm sure as the cavernous hall created great reverberations in sound that added to the aura.

There were no written songs performed, there is no set list. "Overture" is one complete and total improvisation. The members had to come up with the evening's performance on the spot, listening to each other in the dark without being able to get the usual cues. Feeding off the energy of the crowd and trying to channel back and forth. It doesn't always work but it is fascinating. It is not loud or rocking for the most part. Most of the sounds are rather quiet and created by tabla, flute, acoustic guitar, lute, recorder, along with electric guitar, bass, drums, piano, bells. From the CD booklet: "This is nothing but a spiritual conversation between the members, which passes through the senses of the audience, thereby filling the space. The audience is an important "medium." The intention of the arrangement, positioning the players in parallel at a distance from one another, is to connect every member's sound image spiritually, as eye contact with one another is prevented. This is a meditative task. The primary acoustic feature of this space is the length of reverberation. Its tremendous reverberation of 13-15 seconds is the same as that of a limestone cave. Each feels the echo, or remaining spirit of the sound we might say, sensually and spiritually, and each overlaps his individual echo upon it."

The sounds you will hear are chaotic, frightening, dissonant, lost, wandering, rarely melodic, sometimes beautiful, always challenging. This is not for the faint of heart or someone looking for a good rocking time. It is for the very patient listener of unapologetic, slowly moving, pure improvisation. It is very difficult to offer any comparisons. It doesn't sound anything like Ummagumma, Rubycon, or free jazz in a traditional sense, but it possesses the spirit of all three at the same time. The lights literally breathe to life on the curtains as they roll and twist creating surreal silhouettes of the audience members. Images like lava lamps spill onto huge surfaces, a perfect flower appears on a wall above your head, images of people suddenly appear on the support columns, designs of all kinds are constantly changing with the music very slowly. So fantastic are the visual images that they are as important as the music itself. It's for people who want to lay on the living room floor alone and take in this experience on the television (and is presented in 5.1 surround dvd as well as stereo.) This is not a DVD you want to watch with other people unless you are certain they will sit still and shut up for 90 minutes.

It is very hard to be surprised by an album anymore, to be caught off guard, to see something unlike anything you've ever seen before. Ghost has managed to pull off a free-from visual rave as bizarre as Laurie Anderson's "Home of the Brave." In the end, the wonder of the event plays out like a beautiful religious service more than a rock concert. It is a breathtaking event. Not everyone is going to like it, in fact quite a few will not. Yet, if daring explorations into improvisation are a pillar of progressive music, this must be considered a masterpiece. Just not the kind you'll sing along to in the car. And yes, this title has extremely low PSAF (progger spouse acceptance factor) so be warned.

5 stars What a sacred, solemn, but weird atmosphere this is!

Please forget our long experience about psychedelic / space rock scene. When Jim Russell aka Finnforest introduce this band to me (THANKS JIM!), the name of this band could let me chill. At first, I think a Japanese GHOST should not be a phantom or a vision but a spirit itself. GHOST always reminds me the Japanese religious history, that we must believe and take care of the dead spirits. For the dead some of Japanese everyday read OKYO (a religious sutra) and believe that the dead spirits in another world should always support us now living here. This concert is not like a typical one but full of ANOTHER atmosphere.

Well look at the sleeve and you can find a monotone Great Buddha image (DAIBUTSU in Japanese). Now we should be knocked out by the spiritual sleeve and image. As ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE shows on their sleeves, a Great Buddha is a great symbol of all Buddhist and most of our (Japanese) minds. Please listen, and feel...basically awesome, solemn percussions can encircle us. About 5 minutes later, a shamisen (Japanese banjo), wabue (Japanese flute) and bells can make thier sounds heavier and deeper. In such a eccentric music, weird percussive sounds should be alive. Gradually our palpitation with the atmosphere should be greater and greater. Even electric guitars or keyboards, as everyone thinks as typical instruments for rock music, can be noise shooters or storytellers of GHOST. I consider totally this long track can't be called as a song but can be defined as an illusion. There are lots of Japanese instruments as above mentioned, in that especially wabue and various percussions should make this track serious and seraphic. And a piano coming here after 17 minutes can push this sounds toward an upper stage. Electric sounds should NOT be self-assertive or in front of all instruments. Here they should be only noises with adding some solemn flavour. In the middle part avantgarde and sharply noisy explosion can fly and blow over our head. In another world we can't realize what happen but can feel cold, keen-edged, and GHOSTLY wind. Over the noisy society GHOSTs can fly and dance elegantly...I always feel with listening to this track. Someone may say over 56 minute song should be boring. However, I can not think so. YES, this track is not a song but a wind or an air, and should make our heart palpitate as an earthquake, at least for me. Indeed there's no Mokugyo (Buddhistic percussion) or Rin (Buddhistic bell) but every percussion can play each religious part. Furthermore each instrument, without assertion, can support this track under the earth. (Even a saxophone or another horn can play on the background as one of their collaborators.) I'm sure everyone joining the concert should be happy with jumping and tripping over ANOTHER WORLD. Now I can a bit feel this fantastic and awesome atmosphere. I'm very happy. Really, really I can't breathe till the last piano vibrations...

This album is, I wanna say, exactly another Japanese psychedelic culture.
