GIVING UP THE GHOST is an excellent album filled with folk-country-pop tinged songs. Brandi Carlile's follow up to the exceptional THE STORY continues to have a down to earth and introspective feel with her impeccable songwriting and storytelling that can be found within each lyric and melody. With her musical collaborators, Phil and Tim Hanseroth and Celloist Josh Neumann who comprise the Brandi Carlile band, all eleven tracks on the record have a memorable and distinct trait
Brandi Carlile knows how to wring every last emotion from a lyric.
Brandi Carlile’s a young singer-songwriter with incredible range and a sense for drama that comes whipping through her third album, Give Up the Ghost. Produced by Rick Rubin, Ghost sits Carlile at centerstage. Guests such as keyboardist Benmont Tench, Red Hot Chili Pepper drummer Chad Smith (on two tracks) and master string arranger Paul Buckmaster (on one) are in low profile mode.

Brandi Carlile is a woman out of time. She’s no revivalist-four years into her recording career, her albums owe as much to early Radiohead as they do Johnny Cash. But she seems like an artist who, at any point in the past 50 years, could’ve come busting out of Ravensdale, Wash. to bowl the world over like she did in 2005 with her self-titled debut. The album was a fresh 10-song collection of rootsy, straightforward acoustic rock, shot through with wide-eyed, weary wonder. Writhing and burning and staring at life straight down the barrel, Give Up the Ghost is exactly the album Carlile needed to make at this moment. The production is thick but elegant, applied with full knowledge that the songs could exist beautifully in a sparse acoustic-strummed daze, but that they deserve more than that. The best part about Give Up The Ghost ? She will probably make an even better album one day.
