Ghost - Phantom Of The Opera (Single Review)
Updated: May 17
I dunno how this got released without me knowing about it until just now, but whoaaa Ghost's cover of Phantom Of The Opera is everything I'd hoped it would be! The guitar and bass at the beginning are absolutely gorgeous. This entire cover is very bass driven, which is something a little out of the ordinary for Ghost, but I'm all about it. The guitar solo in the middle is wonderful. This song is very instruments heavy and less about the vocals, which I thought was interesting. Though what words we did get had a few lyric changes and that paired with the visuals just point even more towards us losing the current incarnation of Papa soon. I mean it's overdue with how the cycle goes, but I'm still sad about it. This cover is just amazing though and I can't wait to hear the rest of Phantomime! It comes out in just 2 more days!
