Ghosts 'The World is Outside'Reincarnations of electronic outfit Polanski, Ghosts show with this album that they're a band of warm intentions and clever songwriting.

This new record from the band has one of the best opening tracks to grace an album in quite some time, despite sounding suspiciously akin to Jet's bass intro to Are You Gonna Be My Girl. However, the song itself (new single, Stay the Night) is a jazzy piece of crossing instruments, brass, walking basslines and a singable melody. Unfortunately, the majority of the remaining songs have a tendency to fade into the background no matter how much you try to concentrate on them, while the band themselves seem unable to settle on a sound of their own, instead borrowing from a others. Still, Ghosts are a band with a collective head for melody, and this album will inexplicably grow on you, no matter how much you resist it.
