Really need to get around listening to this band again for a better evaluation... Another solid album from such an underrated band!!

3.0 goodEasterInTheBatcave | June 9th 16

Super poppy rock record with minor progressive elements. I love Joey Eppard's voice, and there are some really catchy tracks here ("React," the title track, "Afterglow"). It's sort of one-dimensional though, and "One with the Sun" and "The Barrier" are both underwhelming. Overall, The Ghost You Gave to Me is a fun listen, but not a particularly deep or rewarding one.

3 is one of those bands that can never disappoint, as long as you listen with open ears. The band began in the
early 90's as a Pop Funk Rock outfit consisting of Josh Eppard, Joey Eppard, and Chris Bittner. The latter
moved on to Applehead Recording and Production where he has been the house Engineer/Producer for the
past decade. Chris Bittner produced the album in my #1 and also engineered The Ghost You Gave To
Me. He is currently producing Coheed and Cambria's 6th album (the past 2 Co&Ca albums were done
elsewhere - 3 hadn't worked with Chris Bittner since the debut album, Paint By Number). Drummer, Josh
Eppard, left 3 to pursue a career in studio drumming (mostly at Applehead) and eventually joined Coheed and
Cambria. Most are not aware that 3 is Coheed and Cambria's progenitor.

Now, 3 has taken a heavier direction- laden with poly-rhythms. When I listen to The Ghost You Gave To
Me I'm unsure if I should bang my head or shake my hips! I have yet to come across another band that
confuses my musical response so greatly. Every single song on this album is incredible. Joey Eppard's vocals
are unmatched, as is his hybrid slap/flamenco style of playing guitar. This record is truly unique, and should
be listened to from start to finish.

Just listened to the stream all the way through today... I gotta say, it's 3's magnum opus. This album is fantastic, enormous, emotional, and much more. It's for sure on my top 10 of 2011.
