Rolling Stone - p.783.5 stars out of 5 -- "GHOST is a baroquely arranged drama that echoes his string-swelled Seventies hits."
Record Collector (magazine) - p.904 stars out of 5 -- "[A] powerfully resonant singer's farewell, and a last reminder of just how special he's been for so long."
Uncut (magazine) - p.904 stars out of 5 -- "This is an attempt to produce the final statement of a man facing the dimunition of his faculties, and death. It's a delicate balance, but the obvious sincerity of Campbell's performance overcomes any qualms about what could be an exploitative concept."
