No Earthly Thing ~ by Ghost Estate
Ghost Estate is a band from Pittsburgh PA. Their music is a wonderful combination of classical vocals and violin melding with guitar and synth, all done with a Celtic Twist. The result is a debut album that is a highly dramatic, original take on some of your favorite songs.
The album is aptly named as there is an almost other worldly, surreal quality to it, as if it was recorded somewhere between the concert hall and a ren faire, by the light of a gypsy moon. All of the songs are wonderful but the hauntingly beautiful Roslyn Castle is outstanding, and I am not generally a fan of instrumentals. Greensleeves has long been a favorite of mine and this version is one of the best I’ve heard. This is an amazing first album and one classical crossover fans and lovers of good music, that isn’t afraid to push the envelope, will want to have in their collections.
