Ghost Town, Kinsella's 6th album in 10 years, is everything an Owen fan could want. It is a document of the inner workings of a man, splayed open and dissected down to the bone all while his heart is still beating, pushing every thought and every breath through stereo speakers. Whether it is his relationship, or lack there of, with the concept of god, his sincerest wishes for his daughter's future, or even the ups and downs of his marriage, nothing is off limits.
That is, where 2006’s At Home with Owen and 2009’s New Leaves took a more positive-minded perspective, reflecting on his then recent marriage and birth of his daughter, Ghost Town returns to his brooding roots, digging into the darker, more contemplative corners of his heart. And in contrast to his Owen past, Ghost Town introduces string instrumentation and folk-inspired arrangements on many of its tracks, immediately setting it apart from his previous solo efforts and lending a sound that’s fuller as well as more universal.
Overall, Owen's Ghost Town plays like a well-crafted folk/pop atmospheric album, reminiscent of artists who do maudlin atmosphere better, such as Mark Kozelek, or Iron & Wine. 60. Owen leave behind the emotional outbursts of his collaborations with his brother Tim in Cap'n Jazz, Joan Of Arc and Owls, but keep a quieter, suburban rage alive on his sixth album.
