(4 out of 5 stars)

"Ghost Sonata is a peculiar symphony of, inter alia, violin, woodwind, classical strings, cascades of electronics, piano, tape loops and snatches of vocals fed through a vocoder. Eerie in places, jazzy in others, their songs? never fail to amaze for ingenuity. The Sonata is held together by bits of dialogue from what seems to be a film soundtrack. Beside the atmospheric, orchestral Music Number Two, other interesting pieces include The Funeral Of A Friend, An Affair At The Soiree, Licorice Stick Ostinato and Les Odalisques. But The Sonata should really be appreciated as one movement. Try it for something vastly different if you have an intrepid ear."
A masterpiece like no other

"Tyxedomoon had recorded many brilliant albums, although nothing close to that one. Trying to describe the music is a totally lost case, suffice to say that if you don't have it then you commit a crime (to your ears,anyway) by ignoring it."
