Artist: Blackmore's Night (www.blackmoresnight.com)
Title: Ghost of a Rose
Label: SPV (www.spv.de) / Steamhammer
Genre: Rock/Renaissance, New Age, Hard, Celtic, Progressive

Once I knew Blackmore's Night would be releasing a new album a few months ago, I was counting the days for its arrival. Having the utmost pleasure in consuming the band's entire catalog at the beginning of this year, I was anxious to hear their new offering. Well its here and it is titled Ghost of a Rose.

The rock renaissance/medieval/Celtic influences once again rule the Blackmore roost, although a few surprises will delight the old guard of fans from the Deep Purple and Rainbow days. Ritchie is so smart when he records; he always uses all of his talents and influences to satisfy his worldly fan base that has been gathering steam since the 60s. All of you that have enjoyed the previous albums will absolutely love this release. "Way To Mandalay" (which is also a bonus video on the U.S. release) sets the stage for songs like the title track and others such as "Mr. Peagram's Morris And Sword," which is a splendid instrumental track. Ritchie lets his old fans know he has not forgotten them with tracks such as "Rainbow Blues" and "All For One," which offer some of that old Blackmore blues-rock guitar magic without giving up his newer sound and influences. Candace Night is once again her phenomenal self, singing her heart out, sounding like a gift from the heavens, and ostensibly playing the part of Maid Marion from the days of Robin Hood and Friar Tuck.

This amazing music touches my soul every time I hear it. If there is such a thing as reincarnation, this music certainly makes it feel real. I have always had an affinity for this kind of music and I have no idea why, and listening to this CD brings it all closer to my heart. Ritchie Blackmore has always been a brilliant guitar player now he is beyond that, it is indescribable. He has transformed himself into a pioneer and legend that is far ahead of those commonly used terms. He will surely continue to turn heads each time he sets his foot onstage or records. This is some of the most beautiful music recorded today. I have no doubt whatsoever with my convictions regarding this recording or any other released by Blackmore and his band.
