The Ghosts of Searchlight - Sprawl - Album Review - Traditional Rock from Long Beach, California, USA

Today we are featuring a promising traditional rock project, The Ghosts of Searchlight, from Long Beach, California, USA. I have reviewed their second long-play album, Sprawl, along with its character, style, story, potential, and more.

The Ghosts of Searchlight came to my attention with their new long-play album; Sprawl, only their second after releasing their debut, Here Lie...The Ghosts of Searchlight album back in 2016. The first thing that came to my mind while listening to the album was its beautiful sound. Sprawl offers a solid blend of characteristics from the traditional rock scene such as surf, progressive, stoner, and art rock in its musicality, recorded and mixed with world-class standards. Let me go into more details below.

I have never been a fan of instrumental music myself, and this habit doesn't seem to fade away in me. Sprawl, in this way, wasn't an easy listen, yet I can't ignore the fact that the album sounds superb. Good old-school psychedelic rock instruments while they play killer riffs, grooves, and many dynamic sections throughout the album. That's briefly what's waiting for you once you decide to give it a try.

Additionally, the band shows potential with their standards in their work, and this is one of their main qualities. Although most artists and bands aren't getting any return from their investments in their music, bands like them simply deserve all the respect in this world, mainly for the respect they show for what they do. The band has valid origins in their musical blend, Sprawl is generally traditional with progressive, cinematic, dynamic, energetic, and also atmospheric compositions.

The technical side of the work has the necessary industry standards for me. Sprawl is not only a great-sounding album, also has a promising personality of this band. I am aware that this isn't the ultimate The Ghosts of Searchlight sound, yet I can sense that evolving to somewhere exciting.

When I take all these into account, I'd like to say that I've had a great time listening to The Ghosts of Searchlight. Their second album, Sprawl deserves the top mark both with its musicality and technicality, a serious step forward in the band's career.
