"This CD kicks ass. National Ghost’s 2008 self titled debut is impressive on just about every level, from the musicianship, to the compositions, to the individual performances, to the overall production, it is just a beautiful creation."
"If you like the messy, ice cream head joy of a band that appears to change its shape from track to track, you’ll have great, disorganized fun with this new release."
"National Ghost are comprised of veteran players that bring equal parts passion, taste, bravado, humor and professional poise to the fore. They know how to communicate to a crowd and, for all their inventive and grandiose ideas, avoid the pitfalls of pretention and over-indulgence, This is an exciting and fun band that will appeal to those who simply have a hunger for well-crafted, melodic and groove-induced music."
"The band’s debut disc features 14 tracks of original eclectic rock and pop that borrow liberally from every type of genre you could imagine. Americana, country, funk, reggae, jam, prog-rock, blues—like some tasty musical smoothie; it’s an energized and powerful blend."
"This eponymous debut scales new heights with a mixed bag of rock and pop styles that are at once unique but immediately recognizable. Americana, country, prog-rock, reggae, soul and numerous other genres blend a stew that features exquisite harmonies and excellent songwriting as core ingredients. It's obvious after but one listen that the sum here is greater than the individual parts."
"National Ghost is a very enjoyable listen and runs across several musical boundaries. There's something here for most everyone!"
"National Ghost's music can be considered album rock with strong four-part melodies and a funk edge."
