Biography

We don’t have to look far to find the results of what happens when filters are removed and people create what they think they want to create. Most often, it’s chaos.

It takes the truly gifted artist, at the exact moment when personal uncertainty is as its peak, to reach within and draw out music both noticeably free from constraints and laser-like in its focus.

Editorial Reviews

Ghosts Upon The Earth, the 2011 release from GRAMMY ® nominated group Gungor, was produced by the band's namesake, Michael Gungor. This follow-up to the critically acclaimed Beautiful Things project was composed as a full narrative celebrating the beauty of existence and bemoaning its darkness and frailty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cinematic September 21, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Buy this album, lock yourself in a room, turn down the lights, and turn up the volume. Allow yourself to be immersed. This music will evoke pictures, memories, dreams... It is cinema.

This is not "Beautiful Things Part 2", but it does seem a natural progression for the band. It contains complex beat patterns, unique blends of instrumentation, beautiful harmonies, and authentically honest lyrics. There is certainly plenty of diversity among the songs, and yet the album has a one-ness to it.

I'm encouraged to see another example of Christians creating original, artistic, quality music. Despite it's overtly Christian themes, Gungor's authentic approach manages to avoid being preachy. It feels like we are eavesdropping on Gungor as they serenade their Savior. In essence, this is an album of love songs-- it was not written for us... Perhaps *this* is exactly why "Ghosts Upon the Earth" is so good.

Whatever your theological persuasions may or may not be, if you are a part of the human epic (hint: you are), I highly recommend this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intricately artistic and wonderfully cohesive September 27, 2011
By JoeAZ92
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After a release as successful and simply excellent as last year's Beautiful Things, I knew Gungor was going to have a hard time topping it with their next offering, which was to come a mere year and a half later. As Michael Gungor said in his post about the new album, "there was a temptation to take the safe route on this album and try to make a `Beautiful Things-2.' We knew people liked it, and the easy plan would be to try to do it again. That's not what we did." There is more truth to that statement than you might believe: Ghosts Upon the Earth isn't a "Beautiful Things 2' by any stretch of the imagination. It's something almost entirely different, and whether that is a good or bad thing I suppose depends on how the listener chooses to listen to it. There's no denying that Ghosts Upon the Earth is full of artistically stunning music and a powerful, cohesive story; I think it will really just depend on what the listener makes of it. This listener, at least, is thoroughly impressed with the record; and here's why:

Ghosts begins its artistic narrative with the Beginning in the epic opening track "Let There Be." Lisa Gungor's stunning vocals lead an awe-inspiring crescendo that musically feels a lot like you might imagine that moment where God said, "Let there be light," would have been like. The wonderfully deep and upbeat worship tune "Brother Moon" follows with a sense that the brand new Creation is worshiping its glorious Creator with lyrics like, "You're glorious, You're holding us together." "Crags and Clay" also captures a true sense of awe-inspired worship, only with a quieter sound than "Brother Moon.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Pick for Album of the Year September 23, 2011
By semindn
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
As a musician and singer-songwriter (hobbyist), I'm super picky about my music. I usually criticize about 95% of the music so much that it annoys people I am close to. However, Gungor is definitely different. In terms of 'Christian' affiliated music, this band has no equal in my opinion. There is so much depth and variety in the music and lyrics, yet at the same time, there's a simplicity there. This album is hands down my favorite album of the year. When you listen to it, listen to it all at once if you can and it's a beautiful tapestry of glimmers of angst and hope all meshing into a 'post liturgical' symphony of awesome.

Buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worship Music is a pet peeve of mine, but........ October 10, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I do not like worship music-----the worship music of today to be exact. The last decade has seen an explosive new industry in music that continues to grow and bank millions of dollars every year. Colleges now even offer bachelor degrees in worship music.....and the unfortunate thing about the whole of it is the killing of art in one of mankind's oldest forms of expression: communicating the otherworld and his connection to his Maker through music. I speak as one who is an artist and has been a worship leader before, and the last several years have found me completely disconnected from worship music period. Too often we find contemporary worship mimicking what's been done before to the point of cheesiness, aimlessness, and vanity. The focus has gone from simply making art for the Lord to being as prestigious on stage as possible------all in a masquerade of Christian conviction.

Yet not all Christian artists fall into that category. A friend introduced me to Gungor's "Beautiful Things" last year. Upon taking it in, I thought the band had great potential and had unleashed a bit of it in some of the tracks from the album, but much of it still felt like the same old, same old. Just the other night I heard that Gungor had made a new record with a title taken from a line from C.S. Lewis' "The Great Divorce". I looked it up, listened to the samplers, read every review I could google, and finally decided to just buy the album.

"Ghosts Upon the Earth" is truly a throw back to the art Christians used to make. The entire album functions as a cohesive whole, each track a specific movement in a musical narrative.

Not at all a typical worship album, though little from Gungor really is. It is worshipful, it is not just a Sunday church music type album. Read more
