Cherry Ghost, Beneath This Burning Shoreline Album Review


Whether by good fortune or not, the music of Bolton-based five-piece Cherry Ghost has the advantage, in sound-alike terms, of falling somewhere between fellow Lancashire band Elbow and current alt-rock kings The National, two groups very much in vogue these days. Following on from their acclaimed 2007 debut Thirst For Romance, Beneath This Burning Shoreline has been a long time coming; writing began in 2008 in Berlin and Rome, while the recording process spanned almost all of last year in a converted barn in Cheshire owned by pals Doves.

Mancunian sextet Cherry Ghost are the latest in a long line of bands who've taken that 'mature' route to pop stardom.

'What mature route?' I hear you scream.

Why, the same one employed by the likes of Snow Patrol, Athlete, Ghosts and countless other inoffensively bland peers.

Maybe I'm being a tad unfair comparing 'People Help The People' to the aforementioned hall of shame, as there is at least a semblance of belief in the way Simon Aldred's hoary vocal moves the song along at a grandiose pace, not least when he implores 'If I had a brain.' in some measured cry of desperation that at least sets it apart from careerist fake sentimentalists like The Feeling.

Still, expect this to be soundtracking the dramatic last rites of some soap opera tragedy before the summer's out.

6/10
