OLD GHOST: Light Returns: CD

The music is nice enough, but the vocals piss me off because it might as well be some five-minute pop chart wonder on the mic. I’m not someone who believes that country has to include drawls or slur words in order to adhere to some vague and affected notion of authenticity, but this sounds like little more than a competent country band backing a bland pop singer. My problem isn’t that this is insincere due to some lack of rural stylings—my problem is that it’s fucking boring.
