Ghosts In The Field is Shantell's second album, and comprises 8 tracks that build on the success of her first album. This is a Country/Americana album with a great relaxing feel to it and she has a wonderful sweet voice.
The first track is the title track, Ghosts In The Field, in which she sings about her memories as a child on the farm, and how coming home reminds her of the fun times. The song will get your foot tapping and no doubt making you remember of when you were a child and all the fun things you did. Having been brought up on a farm myself, the track brought back a lot of happy memories for myself as well. The second track is called Who Comes First, which is a song about the person dealing with a partner who prefers such as a bottle instead of the one they love, and how they feel some betrayal because of this. Just a Little is a light hearted song of someone who is just falling in love, with a great catchy tune, which brought a smile to my face, my foot tapping along. Track 4 seems to come so fast, Be My Rain is a more sombre song in style, but Shantell's beautiful voice carries you along in the story she is wanting to tell. We are now already past the halfway point as Blossom In The Dust starts, a nice catching twang to this song, about the child called Rose, and how she gets through her problems, to shine through. God Counts Every Tear, a sad song but with a positive message, a time for reflecting on life. Track 7 comes along, As Long As You're Mine, which starts with a nice guitar twang, a song about having been through life, heartbreak and all that it entails and giving your love now along as they are yours. Already we have reached the last song, this album went by so fast and the last song is playing, The Other Woman, and as the song suggests, it is how a woman is having to deal with the her man having been with another woman before and that she is the mother of his son. It's a powerful song, of the feeling of love to this man and how she will never be the other woman,
To sum up this is another great album that should be in your collection and I would give it 9 out of 10. Listening to the album time seems to go by so fast, listening to Shantell's sweet voice.
