through bright peaks & dark shallows, Obaro Ejimiwe's poignant spoken-words narrate another set of tales against a twisting maze of mangled trip-hop beats & smokey ambience that make for a truly compelling & wonderfully melodic aural trip.

from post rock build ups to lolloping electronic beats, from the portishead/tricky-like dark trip hop to the radiohead-like alt-rock explorations, this is a record that takes the mood of his previous, sparser output & takes it to a whole new level. his 3rd album was recorded with a traditional live set up & was self-produced & also features guest vocals from Nadine Shah, Etta Bond, Melanie De Biasio, Lucy Rose & Maxïmo Park’s Paul Smith. "new alt-rock territory grabs bigger ideas...compelling & thoughtful" 4/5 - guardian, "a message to those who seek to pigeonhole & limit the possibilities & potential of Ghostpoet. Really, it is boundless" 8/10 - drowned in sound.
