Time for another album review. While the last review was for a shorter album (just 30 minutes in length), it actually was a full-length release.
Today we’ll be diving into another short album, but this time, it’s because it’s only a five-song e.p. The band is Ghost and the album is “Pantomime.”
Releases this past Friday it showcases Ghost’s ability to cover a wide range of songs and do so with an incredible amount of talent, skill, and enthusiasm!
The album opens with a cover of Television’s See No Evil. It’s a solid start, but not as catchy as track 2 – their Genesis cover: The 1992 single “Jesus He Knows Me.”
This one gets you moving and humming along. Maybe not the biggest Genesis hit, but Ghost takes it to a whole other level.
They also cover Iron Maiden’s “Phantom Of The Opera” from the Maiden debut album. What a great rendition of this 7+ minute song!
But my favorite happens to be the closer on the album, Tina Turner’s “We Don’t Need Another Hero.”
I can see Mad Max fighting in the Thunderdome from the first note of the song! What a great job by these Swedish rockers!
