13GHOSTS / The Strangest Colored Lights [2008]

Spacey Americana folk-rockers 13ghosts' 4th full length album, The Strangest Colored Lights is a lyrically brilliant album full of finely crafted ballads about Death.
At times it's solemn but not so much that it puts you into a state of depression. In fact, there a few faster tempo songs placed in just right spots so not to get too emotionally heavy.
Unfortunately, as it is with a lot of Americana folk groups, many of the songs just aren't that memorable in the melodic sense. With that said, I can honestly recommend this album just for a few of the 5 star songs.
