It’s an epic masterpiece of peace and mourning – packaged in a marvelous mix of New Age orchestrations and gloomy synth ballads lifted from a Tears for Fears record. It sounds both religious and mystic – images of Medieval cathedrals and enchanted forests come to mind when one becomes lost in this hypnotic opera. Ghosteen is a soothing sonic journey that stirs both the heart and the imagination.
