Review by admireArt
3 stars A natural turn of events.

Tim Bowness' "Lost in the Ghost Light", 2017, musical language displays an ellaborated simplicity very much in tune with the best of Pop and Rock's easily radio waveable friendly songs. Of course this styling falls naturally in his slow paced, dream like ballads as in his most precious attribute his bare naked, fully emotional lyrics, where music as such is at their command.

It will be totally unwise to bash this project because of the before mentioned closeness to mainstream audiences, worse considering how narrow the borders between Prog and white Pop/Rock eventually turned out in these modern times and if anything (as always) his guest ensemble is quiet a dream team!

Clean, attractive and showing a healthy unpretentiousness, this release does not break any kind of unexplored grounds but emphasizes the well established and focused side of Tim Bowness' personal, atmospheric and melancholic moods and his up front approach in their musical expression as in his unmistakable narrative, moving, as told, towards detailed simplicity and transparent perfection.

*** 3.5 PA stars.
