April 17, 2017
True to form the Residents have returned once again.This concept album dealing with the topic of train wrecks recorded throughout the late 19th/early 20th century is one of the most cohesive efforts put forth in recent memory.
Each song is a separate account of a different wreck told in vivid,sometimes gory detail.Sound effects are scattered throughout adding layers of detail to the stories.I notice different aspects upon each listen that lead me to believe this new incarnation of the "real residents" has expanded their musical horizons as well as their storytelling abilities.
I'm rather biased on the subject,as I own a huge chunk of their huge catalog in one form or another but Ghost of Hope definitely stands on its own and actually raises the bar for one of my favorite bands.I would put it in my top five all time favorites from them.
