For me Meliora and Prequelle are superior albums, the songwriting has improved with each album - looking forward to the next one soon!
I like Prequelle a lot but think Meliora is far superior of an album. I hope their 5th LP is a bit of a return to that sound. Prequelle feels a bit too ballady with lyrics that aren’t nearly as provocative as the earlier stuff.
I agree with you 100% and still feel my opinion is also ok in light of that. I like the direction they’re going, just want to see a little more bite in some songs.On the contrary, I think the future of Ghost is as a genre-defying act doing all sorts of different genres. Don't think returning to a previous sound would be interesting or wise in any way.
Thought Seven Inches of Satanic Panic was brilliant.
