Description
This is the fifth studio release from American singer–songwriter Samuel Beam, who goes by the avatar Iron & Wine. "Pop music hadn't seen anything like it since the heyday of Cat Stevens," said Rolling Stone of his previous album, Kiss Each Other Clean, and with tunes like "Grace for Saints and Ramblers," "New Mexico's No Breeze," "The Desert Babbler," "Caught in the Briars," and "Low Light Buddy of Mine," its follow up is a fountain of lush pop bliss as well.

"Vigorously polished, unrepentant in its use of syrupy lounge staples – pianos tinkle unobtrusively, backing singers coo – and suave in its mastery of its chosen style, it still teems with ideas and smuggles in lyrical barbs among the sumptuous melodies . The smooth funk of 'Low Light Buddy of Mine' quivers with an undisclosed menace while on 'Lovers Revolution,' Beam cuts wine bar jazz with gothic country, like an apocalyptic preacher at a cocktail party. Four stars."—The Guardian

"The early word was I&W had 'gone jazz', but nothing is that straightforward in Sam Beam's world, and Ghost on Ghost is as dense stylistically as it is lyrically…. There are songs here so polished they could be mistaken for George Michael (in a good way). Best lyric? Too many to choose from but 'the makers of the medicine will always say you're looking sick' would take some beating. Five stars."—The Independent
