“It's almost an aural diary with some of the most complex, mind-blowing music you'll ever hear backing it... A stunning, super-memorable collection of songs.”
"I hesitate to call this a guitar album because of the brilliant mix of instruments throughout the six tracks that makeup up the self-titled debut from Ghost Towns of the West... They also demonstrate the same respect for Neil Young’s influence on grunge music that Pearl Jam championed most notably on 'Tall Green Grass' which pairs Young influenced rhythm guitar with McCready influenced lead guitar."
"Judging by my initial listening reactions, Ghost Towns of the West qualify as a true find filling an under-served niche on the local scene. Their 6 track debut EP was recorded this past December at Ed Ackerson's renowned Flowers Studio, and it's a smoky and haunted affair with more than a bit of the Doors dark mojo in its lithe keyboard lines."
"With its widescreen songs, beefy production and ace musicianship — the lineup includes a terrific saxophone player — the album sounds like an old-fashioned major-label production, not the first fruits of a young band. Expect to hear more from these guys."
