It is incredible that both Deconstruction and Ghost album were created by the same artist. They are so vastly different it is truly amazing. Deconstruction is easily the heaviest album of the four Devin Townsend Project discs into which Devin channeled the most ridiculous levels of his psyche, complete with jagged and abrasive sections culminating in off-the-wall passages, aggressive vocal parts, and mostly humour-driven lyrical content.

Ghost, on the other hand, is marked with a droning, meditative atmosphere throughout. The songs are defined by lofty passages filled with finger-picked acoustic guitars, a lot of flute sounds, and subtle landscapes of sound layered on top of each another. The melodies are strong, but they are infused into the winding, labyrinth-like song structures. As a result, the hooks don't hold for a while yet it is still a fascinating experience listening to the whole disc. About five plays in, I was totally blown away by the album, especially when I realized how all the songs, despite not having much structure, come to a theme and stick with it for a few phrases and build on it before moving onto the next one.

The melodies are among Devin Townsend's finest, perhaps since Terria. Listening to "Feather" has been one of my most rewarding musical experiences ever. Townsend employs an elevation technique when a melody starts on the low and then keeps climbing throughout the song.

Devin has done it again- this time, with smooth, mellow writing and playing. This is a great contrast to the HEAVY, heavy, Deconstruction album. If you enjoy ANY type of music, you should like this. Polished, Serene, and Captivating music from Devin once again. This is a MUST have album.

First time I heard this when it came out I thought it was nice, chill, contemplative, etc. Loved it then as proof that Dev is capable of performing almost any musical genre with skill and integrity (like Buckethead with the guitar--versatile is a strong understatement.)

Well, close to three years have passed since then and of all the iTunes playlists I have made consisting of one single album (there have easily been 100s+ of such), this is the lone album to stick there by itself, and I think it will for a long time.

The reasons it's "good" are because, like the music, it's simple yet complex.

1. It's got a soft touch but there's enough subtle variety inherent to each song (yes, you need to pay attention to actually catch it though)that it never gets "boring" or comes off as single-faceted, as some reviewers have stated. Each song has a backbone with various musical/vocal elements weaving in and out seamlessly; if there is a slight lift to the music it's most often a light flute that delicately helps to build an airy, effervescent feeling.

2. Instrumentation/vocalization: Flute, light percussion, banjo, acoustic guitar (electric too?), keyboards, clips of nature sounds (non-cheese!), female vocals (ethereal), and male vocals (ethereal & a few Maynard-esque "almost-yelling" moments that don't detract from the mellow feeling, but build a touch of heartiness where appropriate.) I might be missing some intricacies that are harder to pick out from the nicely-layered mix, but that's what I've noticed off the top of my head.

3. This is the one Devin Townsend album that is potentially accessible to pretty much anybody from any walk of musical genres, given they have a semi-open mind.

Nobody is as prolific as Devin Townsend, and at the same time can produce album after album of such astonishing variety, excellence and brilliance. Perhaps only Frank Zappa was as diverse and capable of turning out a huge amount of records in his lifetime. That's very heady company.
"Ghost" is the fourth of the quadrilogy from the Devin Townsend Project and the most surprising. I haven't heard "Deconstruction" yet but I do know it's maniacally heavy, which Devin has done well for ages. "Ghost" however is a work of a totally different sort and for my money ranks with "Ocean Machine" as the best work this amazing man has done.
It is ethereal, hazy, beautiful and loaded with a quieting music that maybe is as close to the natural music of mother nature itself than any other attempts from other impressionist musicians. Flute music abounds over dreamy synthesizers, acoustic guitar provides the backbone to the more traditional structured portions, such as the title track. Townsend's vocals are deliberately buried deep in the mix, the better to not interfere with the instruments.
If only other metal musicians were this confident and fearless to release work of uncompromising beauty. We know that Steve Wilson of Porcupine Tree and Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth have their moments of beauty, and one hopes they would throw caution to the wind and explore the deeper melodic side to their musical souls. If fans don't like it tough. Intolerance in music is echoing loud and clear, just like it is in real life, and that's a shame. If it takes real musicians like Devin Townsend to open doors to new musical worlds, then let's get more. "Ghost" should be on everybody's MP3 and at home on the CD shelf. It's that good.
