Melody, lyrics, chorus, and great orchestration,exceptional cello part, it is all perfect.
David Hall
Every time I buy a new Blackmore's Night CD, I keep on saying that this is the best one and that there is no way they can do a better one.
Ilhan Akbil
"Way to Mandalay" is the first released single from the album, and as a bonus the CD includes the video for the song.

Ghost of a Rose is the fourth album released under Blackmore's Night, and it seems apparent that Ritchie and Candace have now created their own genre apart from pop. The music contained reminds me of 16th century England with a blend of folk,rock and a hint of Gypsy intermingled.
This album, though similar to the others, definitely shows a maturity in style and performance. It possibly could be their best effort to date. Simply put, it pleases from the first to the last track. I am looking with aniticipation towards their next venture, and can say with certainty that I will buy it with confidence. There is something here for almost any taste.

As songwriters and arrangers, Ritchie B. and Candice Night started out strongly on their first release in 1997, and still consistently turn out interesting and clever lyrics and melodies (some adapted from pieces that are hundreds of years old). But I had the misfortune of hearing this disc AFTER seeing their incredible live DVD (see my review) which was released 10/11/05. The performances on that DVD of some of the tunes on this CD are so spectacular that those same songs sometimes sound lifeless and more like demos here. The production is rather cold and clinical, and lends no 'warmth' to the voices or the wonderful instruments that are used. Again, I'm sure that part of this is a bias on my part, attributable to the fact that I'm more familiar with the live versions. But the fact remains that their second studio release, "Under A Violet Moon", is easily their most well-produced.

The best of the originals are "Queen for A Day" and the absolutely awesome title track. Also, this release includes two covers (of songs originally by Joan Baez and Jethro Tull, respectively).

If you like this great band, you should probably get this and all their studio discs. BUT if you want to experience a really entertaining showcase by this unique act, go straight to the 'Castles and Dreams' DVD--you will not be sorry.
Thanks for reading, Ant

Well what can I say about this album, it's fabulous and I've never ever in my life listened to any thing like this. I have all blackmore's night album and this one is far more beautiful that any other album. Actually I think it's the best album in 2003 and maybe in the decade. The CD is full of great songs but my favorites are "Way to Mandalay", "Ivory Tower","Ghost of a Rose" and of course the perfect one "Diamonds and Rust".I've bought this CD today and I've been listening to it for more than 8 hours and I just can't stop playing it.
I do recommend this for all Blackmore's night and for any one who is interested in knowing their music (medievil/folk).I do recommend Shadow of the Moon and fires at midnight as well.
Great one you gotta have it in your collection.

NOTE: You MUST listen to this entire album 3 or 4 times before forming your opinion, the reason being that most of the songs are subtley catchy, they are not hit-you-over-the-head catchy, so it takes 3 or 4 listens before the catchy-but-subtle melodies stick in your head. This is also one of those albums where on repeated listenings new nuances emerge which you didn't notice on previous listenings. With that caveat here is my review...With "Fires at Midnight" Blackmore had raised the bar so high I was afraid he wouldn't be able to top that great effort. Were my fears realized? "Ghost of A Rose" is in many ways Blackmore's Night's most mature effort to date; in fact, with "Ghost" Blackmore's Night has established itself as one of the premiere folk-world-progressive-rock outfits of this or any other generation. Does that answer the question? Words cannot describe how much I love this CD. The entire group is in a real comfortable groove here. Candace Night's crystal-clear singing is as beautiful as ever, and her lyric writing continues to improve and mature still further and has become much more consistent. The backing musicians are world-class. The production is sparkling. And soft, sappy pop? Forget about it. Songs which might have been performed as soft sappy pop on previous albums instead here come across as elegant, romantic folk ballads of subtle beauty. Gone are the inconsistencies which plagued the first 2 albums and while "Fires at Midnight" was a very good CD overall, there were still 3 or 4 songs on it which took repeated numerous listenings before I warmed up to them. Not so with "Ghost." From the opening note to the final note you will be CONSISTENTLY mesmerized and left begging for more.Read more ›

This cd is excellent and has become one of my favorite Blackmore's Night Cds and I have all of them. This cd is Modern Medieval music with a touch of rock,instead of Rock with a touch of Medieval which some rock artist tried to do but ultimately failed for fear of rejection from their fans. Ritchie Blackmore has taken rock music to a land where no other rock artist would dare tread. And he has done it very well and has earned my applause repeatedly. Ghost Of A Rose is simply brilliant and original. so what if they did their own versions of other songs, after all this is done in the rock world all too often as well, so why criticize him for it?
I love the addition of the buzzing Kazoo sounds on this cd, it gives the music and even more authentic feel of the medieval ages, and it is done very tastefully. There is not a sour song on the entire cd. Though i love all the songs on the cd, my favorites are Mr Peagram's Morris and Sword, Nur Eine Minute, Ghost Of A Rose, Queen For A Day Pt 1and2, Cartouche, 3 Black Crows and Way to Mandalay. The bonus video track is awesome as well. The visuals are a long awaited welcome. We want more Ritchie and Candice, How about a live DVD for our collections. I highly recommend this cd as well as all the rest of their cd's to anyone who likes Medieval/Renaissance type music.
