REVIEWS
Average points: 4.5 (Reviews: 8)
***
Ein wenig düster und gleichsam nichtssagend kommt dieser Titel aus dem neuen Album von a-ha daher; der ist zwar nicht richtig schlecht, aber man hätte sich dieses etwas monotone Gehäckel auch schenken können. Nur ein bisschen weniger ist manchmal erheblich mehr, sollte man wissen!
******
Ein A-Ha-Fan der 1. Stunde, bin ich aktuell immer noch dabei, mich in das Comeback-Album "Cast In Steel" reinzuhören, das ich bislang weder als Enttäuschung noch als die grosse Offenbarung empfinde.
Ein Song, der mir aber schon jetzt sehr gut gefällt - neben der 1. Single "Under The Makeup", die sich nach und nach in mein Fanherz geschlichen hat - ist "Giving Up The Ghost", weil bei dieser düsteren Synth-Pop-Nummer für einmal ein eher sperriges Arrangement über harmlose Ohrwurmqualität gestellt wurde.

Geht in Ordnung
*****
Schöne Nummer und wie schon gesagt mit einem nicht vordergründig poppigen Arrangement.
*****
Noch ein Ausrufezeichen im hinteren Teil des Albums. Absolut gelungen.
*****
Dieses düstere Pop-Werk ist für a-ha schon fast experimentell zu bezeichnen und bekommt von mir daher die fünf Sterne ...

Im Übrigen hört sich das Stückchen wie ein Soundtrack an.
****
Auch dieser Song hat seine Qualitäten.

gut
