Spectral and bizarre
Jason Robey | Silver Spring, MD USA | 03/28/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Ghost" is dark insanity, haunted schizo-chill, ground-crumbling cemetery wax, rusted chain nightmares, electrified spirit trails, and all other such forms of twisted horror-show oddity. It's an amalgam of detuned strings, sinister drum 'n bass loops, and bizarre samples that at times resemble howling wolves, mumbling spirits, screaming banshees, and buzzing flies. "Ghost" won't flow easily into most ears.This is the kind of album to turn the lights down for, with only a candle or two flickering in the empty pitch, prepared to follow the Third Eye down the blackened pathways of the mind.The album starts fast with "What to Do But Cry?" and "Corpses as Bedmates," my favorite tracks. The tribal drums on "Cry" guide the ears past moaning beasts (what is that sound?) and chanting wraiths that seem to be speaking from the other side of the grave. Seriously. Listen to it! "Corpses" evokes the title of the album like no other song on here. Skeletal trees blowing in the wind, frenzied ghosts shrieking and circling, and a wicked drum loop to ignite the whole platter and make it dance. "Corpses" evokes images of "Fantasia's 'A Night on Bald Mountain,'" when the dead rise at the devil's behest for a grim fandango.The album slows down a bit after these two stellar tracks. "The Star's Gone Out" sounds like rusted metal scraping and oscillating. "The Out Sound From Way In" is... I don't even know - it's just weird and fractured, but in a good way.I won't try to describe the final three tracks, except to say that "Ghosts" and "Donald Crowhurst" bring the mood down slowly to an almost gentle throbbing. If you have the album set to repeat, like I often do, track 1 will sound like it's from a different planet, but the progression from 1 to 7 makes total sense nonetheless.How cool are these song titles by the way? "Corpses as Bedmates," "The Out Sound From Way In," and "I've Seen the Light and It's Dark" are compelling titles in and of themselves. It makes me wonder what the album would have been like if Matt Elliot had penned some lyrics.I shudder."
A disturbing lo-fi horror show
Bryan O'Sullivan | CA, United States | 02/06/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Ghost" was the first Third Eye Foundation album I picked up, on a whim at one of my local record stores. When I first listened to it, I was shocked: this is not your typical clean, samey drum-and-bass outing. It's more like an edgy electronic soundtrack to the apocalypse.The rhythms of Ghost are crumpled and thrashed but familiar; the harsh screaming melodies that overlay them guarantee that you won't have an easy time playing this album as background music. It insistently demands your attention and makes your skin crawl even as you tap your foot.The overwhelming impression of this album is of devastation and paranoia, and it is just beautifully evocative. It makes a fine back-to-back combination with anything by Canada's Godspeed You Black Emperor.Unless you know that you like harsh and creepy electronic music, you ought to think about giving this album a listen or five before you buy it. It won't grow on you; it will tunnel inside."
Fantasmas personales

"Posiblemente, uno de los discos mas completos que he adquirido.
primero, no quiero clasificarlo con la palabra completo,ya que es demasiado comprometedora.
Aun asì, este disco contiene un trabajo en LO-FI, que promete ser uno de los exponentes mas importantes en un tiempo considerable, para los amantes de la música electrónica y sus ramas extendidas.
The third eye foundation,logra con gran genialidad, el poder construir un disco negro, cargado de hermosas melodìas (casi tìpico por parte de ellos), con una visión demasiado amplia de la composición y LOOPS increiblemente colocados, en ritmos desesperantes, temas largos con mezclas entre, drum n'bass cortados y de tiempos cortos, que al final nos parece interminable.. de bueno o malo para otros.
Podrìa decir tambien, que es un disco ambiental (y no para cualquier ambiente)pero si logras ubicarlo en un contexto especìfico con otras mezclas y puedes hacer otra cosa con el que suene mejor, de seguro lo encontraras.
Ghost, queda comprendido, como un disco concebido a un nivel mayor de presonalidad musical, sin desprestigiar su nuevo trabajo, casi reciente ( I POO POO IN YOUR JUJU ), que no tengo palabras en este moento para explicar como han evolucionado en todo este tiempo,pero considero este ghost como un logro inmenso y controlado de las emociones musicales y de los campos mas vanguardistas que existen en este momento. GHOST es un disco inteligente.
Esta fundación, pretende estar en un nivel superior y lo estan!1.FANTASMASLos fantasmas de este disco,estan en nosotros.solo trata de sacarlos desde lo mas profundo, de nuestros cuartos o refugios, para evolucionar tal vez? o tambien ayudarnos a enfrentar los miedos?, porque cuando enfrentamos nuestros mayores miedos, experimentamos poderes especiales que ignoramos.Personalmente este trabajo (ghost), me inspira mucha confianza,en mis
sentimientos, labores y en mi desarrollo personal, ghost, es un disco cargado de EGO que es verdaderamente lo que debemos aprender a utilizar.
The third eye foundation, es un filtro de energìas.tu estas lleno de fantasmas, entonces vencelos, y evoluciona. GHOST es un disco espiritual!"
