Devy without the Hevy leaves you with a surprisingly enjoyable experience, Townsend sheds his manic industrialised progressive metal and unleashes a calming flow of soothing tunes on Ghost. The difference between the two "project" albums this year is staggering, Deconstruction is a completely shameless exposition of the mastermind's inner quirkiness, whereas Ghost is nothing of the sort. You're in for a tranquil 70 minutes to say the least, the meaning behind the album title becoming apparent for all its ethereal atmosphere.

Deconstruction was actually my least favorite album of these four, and probably my least favorite of his that I have heard. It seemed so overblown, lacked focus, and felt the least honest of all his records.


I agree. I'm pretty sure all these points were, for the most part, intentionally made so by Dev when making this album. It goes along with the theme of the album. Of course, this doesn't excuse it from being less interesting though.

The artwork is an important part of the album for me, if it has good artwork I tend to be more interested in wanting to listen to the music. Then again there is wonderful music out there hidden behind mediocre cover art.

I find that when I'm drawn by a particular album cover, I almost always enjoy the music. Similarly, artwork that deters me usually ends fronting music I dislike. I can only think of a few exceptions, such as Back To R'lyeh's The Awakening / Last Fight Of The Primordial. Ugly cover, brilliant music.

Indeed. But this artwork is like a masterpiece compared to the one used Addicted, a brilliant album with one of the worst covers I've seen.
