Every time Ghost Town comes out with a new album they are either hated for it, or many people become completely obsessed with it.

Ghost Town came out with their new album “Evolution” on Nov. 6, 2016, and their music includes genres such as post hardcore, electronic dance music, dubstep, and horror.  Ghost Town went all out with their previous album, “Party in the Graveyard,” with songs that reveal a punk and horror theme.

The fact that Ghost Town did not add much horror to their newest album may have disappointed a few fans, but it certainly made it stand out, and not in a bad way. Ghost Town’s previous album, “Party in the Graveyard” was completely different from there newest album “Evolution.”

A few songs such as “Skeleton, You’re So Creepy,” and “Party in the Graveyard,” really grabbed my attention because of all the different types of horror music. However, while listening to this album, I noticed that the songs sound similar because of the electronic dance music, and post hardcore styles. While this isn’t bad, it takes away my attention from the songs’ lyrics, and forces me to focus more on the music itself.

Out of the many songs that are included in their new album, “Loner,” and “Candles” are the two most stand out songs.

“Candles” creates a new vibe for Ghost Town because of its slow pace, acoustic feel, and smooth singing.

“Loner” creates a more personal feel for them because of the lyrics. The lyrics “tonight I feel like being a loner, call me a loser but my night’s not over,” gives listeners the message that it is okay to have time to yourself, even if you appear lame or boring because of it.  Being alone with your thoughts provides you with the opportunity to shutout the rest of the world’s opinions and discover your own truths.

 Ghost Town’s “Evolution” suggests a more rebellious and personal theme compared to their album “Party in the Graveyard.”

Although I can’t say Ghost Town’s new album was a great success, “Evolution” blew me away even after eliminating most of the horror and EDM features from their music.
