CD REVIEW: Oh Halo "Ghosts Can't Be Buried"

               What begins as a cross between synth pop and dream pop but might not be synth wave but maybe dream wave comes off like a version of a genre of music that I enjoy but is not typically associated with One-Eyed Doll, yet the vocals can resemble those of Kimberly Freeman.

                As the album progresses, you can hear some later Madonna coming (probably some earlier Madonna too) as it goes from that dance beat of the 1980’s straight into my once again being forced to find myself singing “My baby’s got a secret”.

                The end of the album though, as the lyrics suggest, does end up slowing down and it becomes very dreamy in a blissful way.   It’s not as fast beat as when the album first started, but it does bring me back to the notion that this is dream pop.

                Whatever you call it, this is just all around awesome- musically, lyrically, originality and the pacing of the album as a whole.
