Ghost Box Orchestra – The Only Light On

September 17, 2010

The American Heritage Dictionary (4th ed) defines “critical mass” as

  1. The smallest mass of a fissionable material that will sustain a nuclear chain reaction at a constant level.
  2. The amount of matter needed to generate sufficient gravitational force to halt the current expansion of the universe.

Somehow, the same two ideas also seem to characterize this new album by Ghost Box Orchestra. Light but heavy. Ethereal yet substantial. Explosive yet still in equilibrium. And most definitely one of the best local albums of the year.
