The newest GHOST album came on on June 1st and I'd highly recommend it. I know there are more than a few fans here on the JBF.

Multiple back-to-back listens have only reinforced my initial opinion about how good this album is. It alternates between heavy, melodic, theatrical, and catchy, with just enough callbacks to music and even some movies from the 70s and 80s (I'm looking at you, Flash Gordon) to make this just about as perfect an album as I've heard in a long time.

If you grew up with bands like KISSAlice CooperBlack SabbathDeep PurpleRainbow, and/or Blue Oyster Cult, I strongly urge you pick this one up.
 
And then go get every one of the other albums. 

And then spend the rest of the weekend listening to them on repeat while you self-flagellate for not having done it sooner.

I love some of the cover versions they have done, such as "Here Comes The Sun," and "Crucified."

Matt, this new album has two bonus cover songs; The Pet Shop Boys' "It's a Sin" and Leonard Cohen's "Avalanche." I think they both came out great.

Their cover of It's A Sin is great. I need to listen to more of their original material, though.

A big fan of GHOST. I have seen them 7 times now (Ritual), to include a meet and greet. The new album a nothing short of Phenomenal. Only GHOST would put a sax in a heavy metal number. The cover of Leonard Cohen Avalanche is just amazing.
Going to see them again on Dec. 10 at the Hippodrome in Baltimore.
