Shane Morkin released his album Ghost Town towards the end of 2014, Shane is actually from Denmark, but don't let that put you off from listening to this album, as it is a great country album. The first track is Don't Think Twice, a foot tapping song that basically is giving a positive note, to start a relationship, and a good song to start the album as it applies to join Shane on this music trip. The Spell is the second track which is a good dance song, heading towards Americana. The third track is Have A Nice Day, this track you hear some good guitar work to start the song, with the now familiar soft voice of Shane. Hearts That Beat as One, a song about your feelings about your true love. Track five gives the feeling of sitting around a camp fire, and you could imagine one of the cowboys singing Forever to his girl. Track six is back to foot tapping mode, with Last man On The Moon, now we hear a different sound to Shane's singing voice, the guitar work taking front stage, which i love in this track. Stronger is the 7th track, and is a very catchy song, I feel like dancing, which is not wise. This is followed by Fools Game, this is a nice simple track, where you almost feel you know the words, but not quite. Coffee Bar In Old Soho, a different type of song, drowning his sorrows in coffee rather than beer. Then we reach the title track, Ghost Road, remembering the past, but with a great up beat tempo. Track Eleven is Someday, he is telling us he will be back again someday, sometime, to the one he loves, and before we know were we are, we have reached the last song, Hurt To Say Goodbye, and as the title suggests, the tone is much more sombre, as he sings about his goodbye and the hurt it gives him.
The entire album is a great relaxing listen, enjoying the foot tapping moments, and even sometimes touching an accord with the listeners, with experiences we have all had at some point in our lives. This album is very much worth adding to your collection, I give this 4 and a Half stars.
