Album review: Ghost Atlas – Dust Of The Human Shape

The songwriting throughout is brilliant, especially when Jesse mixes the formula up, like on Gaps In The Armoire, where acoustic guitars and slick solos combine to augment the storytelling. Elsewhere, the piano on recent single Seeker (Stretch The Night) works to the same end. There’s so much going on here, but it all sounds so well thought out, and never does it feel like the ideas overstay their welcome or are pushed too far.

Metalcore may be his day job, but the 12 tracks offered here prove that when he dons the Ghost Atlas moniker, Jesse Cash can leave most alt.rock songwriters in the dust.

Verdict: 4/5

For fans of: I The Mighty, Too Close To Touch, Underoath

Dust Of The Human Shape is released January 26 via UNFD.
