While The Sleeping Ghost is playing, you can feel the pressure of the lyrics' hell wrought meaning. For those who have had their soul broken and scattered in the dirt, the intelligence of this band's word and music will be found to touch the core. Their sound transcends the usual immature and popularized shit lyrics of the broken heart love singers. These songs are real; the naked shattered soul is exposed in this music. No other band or bands come to mind in comparison to this one as is usual in the case of the critic who says that such and such a band reminds him or her of some other band or composite of bands. The Sleeping Ghost is a dreaming ghost. The violent, satirical, contemplative, genuine and deeply romantic energy of this band's performance is unusual to be heard in the many bars and clubs these days.
