4 stars "Ghost" has an obvious acoustic dimension: lots of acoustic guitars and some percussions mixed with electric guitar sometimes rather hard rock. It is not rare to hear piano parts. There are floating loud keyboards, like organ and classic mellotron of the old KING CRIMSON's stuff. Dave Cousins' voice is good, as always, and yes it sounds a bit like Peter GABRIEL, but still remains unique and give personality to STRAWBS. "Ghost" contains many mellow and relaxing bits full of keyboards ("Remembering", "You And I", "Grace Darling"). You have to hear the choirs on "Grace Darling": majestic!
