Consequence of Sound

Holy Ghost! may not be a game changer, but it’s not redundant in an electro-pop scene increasingly dominated by progressive disco.

71
Pitchfork

The big stumbling blocks are redundancy and an overextension of a few good ideas.

Holy Ghost! will need to dig a little deeper into their souls and diversify their influences to make more of a mark in the long run.

60
Drowned in Sound

The duo seem too intimidated by their own influences, and pay them too much respect, to really meet their potential.

Great funky record that takes good ideas and develops them in interesting ways. The duo delivers a bunch of fun, groovy and textured dance-tracks and manage to enterntain from start to finish. The production is excellent, the instrumentation and the sounds are interesting in almost every moment in the whole album, the songwritting is relatively solid and even though there is actually nothing really original or groundbreaking here, this album is a fun and worth listen.
