Throughout this album there are a variety of sounds and songs, ranging from pop-folk numbers to hard rock to noisy outré concepts, held together by Ghost's diverse musical personality. The essence of Ghost is the epic 'Hemicyclic Anthelion.' Nearly thirty minutes of free improvisation from several live shows are strung together into a seamless progression. Featuring the same line-up that recorded Hypnotic Underworld. Contains a cover of Cromagnon's 'Caledonia'. Deluxe gatefold jacket. LP version features a different sequence and an exclusive extra version of Cromagnon's "Caledonia". Buy record at ( 2LP currently not in stock ) Greatest Hits Mailorder (D) change

Their 7th album and their first since 1999's "Snuffbox..." & "Tune in". A fine, colourful release that ranges from Krautrock influences, mystro/improv/prog rock jams to folk rock pieces and 60's US West Coast influenced psychedelia in Fever Tree, Quicksilver tradition. Included are cover versions of songs by Earth & Fire and Syd Barrett. Buy record at ( CD 14.00 EUR) Greatest Hits Mailorder (D) change
