      2008 release, the third album from this Icelandic outfit led by Bardi Johannsson (also one-half of Lady & Bird with Keren Ann). Ghosts From The Past is a collection of extremely well-written songs, full of melodic outbursts, the likes of which are rarely seen these days; with careful arrangements and coherence, but still diverse. From the pop manifest to the almost metallic influences of a hit, 'I Know' is an irresistible Pop-Rock track; the emotional crescendo and the almost mystical rise of the opera singer on 'Ghost From The Past' will bring tears to your eyes; and 'Don't Feel Ashamed' is an ethereal delicacy, a sublime composition worthy of the best of The Lotus Eaters or The Cocteau Twins. Bardi proves here, if needed, the extent of his talent. Bardi Johannsson loves mysteries and eclecticism; he is always ready to take the least expected detours. Like the specters evoked in this third album, Ghosts From The Past, he sometimes disappears and reappears, but his music never ceases to haunt us.
