When I first heard Cloud Cult, I was in the backseat of a car, maybe under the influence of something…but what I heard I thought was amazing music that I’ve heard all before. There was a discussion, if I remember correctly, about the quality of the lyrics and such. On a second listen while sober, I found my third guilty pleasure in the last year. The first being The Most Serene Republic’s Population, the second being The Deadly Syndrome’s The Ortolan. I’m a sucker for sappy indie art-rock, I suppose. There is such a melancholy hopefulness about this sort of music that always seems to put me in the right mood, and Feel Good Ghosts does just that, however, I like that Cloud Cult has put a nice electronic flavor to the album. All of the songs are pretty solid, though nothing stands out quite like the final vocoded-operatic ballad, “Love You All”, that is the epitome of sappy indie art-rock, which makes for an incredible cherry on top.
