  5. The songwriting is Songs: Ohia at its most unconventional - with two twelve-minute avant-folk pieces and ambient interludes, it’s certainly something to take in but is accessible and powerful at first listen. It's hard not to feel a real attachment to "Not Just a Ghost's Heart" or "Incantation". One of my favourite albums of all time.
  6. Subdued and somber, Ghost Tropic could make for the perfect soundtrack to a midnight walk along a deserted street. At its center is Jason Molina 's voice, beautiful and frail, surrounded variously (though rarely at the same time) by sparse guitar, keyboards, and percussion. Everything moves as slowly as a three-legged dog, and anyone neither patient enough nor attuned to Molina 's style of songcraft .
  7. Ghost Tropic begins with "Lightning Risked It All", an Alt-Country dirge played with the looseness of a Slacker-Rock band and the abstraction of a Post-Rock band (the percussion constitutes a track in itself). "The Body Burned Away" is more typical, more lively, and features a stronger melody which reaches an emotional peak.
  8. "Lightning Risked It All" sounds like a track from The Lioness until that hollow, wooden percussion comes in and eventually dominates the entire track. Speaking of "hollow," Molina's music was always stark; his early albums had basically no production, and when the songs got slow you could feel the empty space lingering like, ahem, a ghost.
  9. Ghost Tropic is modern folk music that sounds like it has just crawled out of the swamp, completely unaware of conventions or anything that has gone before it. It's also a bit of an anomaly for Jason Molina, abandoning Songs:Ohia's (also brilliant) indie-rock/country modes that came before and after for a full-on atavistic descent into his personal darkness/5(12).
