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!

Take a listen:

  • Ghost- See No Evil

  • Ghost- Jesus He Knows Me

  • Ghost - Hanging Around

  • Ghost - Phantom Of The Opera

  • Ghost - We Don't Need Another Hero
