ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ghostwheel is the artistic pseudonym of European-born, US-based producer / recording artist Dobo Radichkov. Ghostwheel sources musical inspiration from Depeche Mode’s world of dark electro-rock soundscapes and UK’s Britpop scene.

Ghostwheel’s music transcends reality to a place glorifying the beauty of melancholy ridden melodies driven by stark, yet layered atmospheres. Technological precision, ethereal instrumentation, experimental sampling, vulnerable vocals, and human imperfection catalyze a chemo-musical reaction best described as, well, ghostly.

Newborn, Ghostwheel's impending first release, is a collection of ten atypical Depeche Mode covers. The album was recorded during 2006-2007 and is released on Minor Key Records.

Vicious!
Ghostborn has arrived! This first effort by “ Ghostwheel” (the pseudonym of the ambitious Dobo Radichkov) is an auditory safari into the soul of what Depeche Mode is all about (and fans know exactly what I mean) What I like most about this album is the ambience, he really does a superb job at creating a haunting mood. These days it's hard to find an album that flows well from beginning to end, and Ghostweel does a great job of doing that. I also like how his voice changes from one song to the next, which gives each song its own character.

Now that I've heard the songs in their entirety, I appreciate them much more! "Sea of Sin" and "Newborn" (my favorite) should be played on progressive radio stations like BBC 6 music. The other songs like “Darkest Star” parts 1 and 2 are so well done, they make Depeche Mode's version sound like it was produced with Playskool toys! He does a good job of upstaging the Mode on some songs, like "Get Right with Me" and "Sometimes" (my second favorite--that should be on the radio too). I love the entire album from start to finish--it's vicious!

The CD itself is also worthy of mention. The booklet is absolutely well put together and the photography is beautiful.

Other tribute albums don't come to near to expressing the dark and soulful side of the Mode like Ghostwheel has (and I bet Depeche Mode would agree). As a tribute album, it stands up to its name.

Cover Me Good
It\'s rare to find a tribute album these days that choses the tracks that are worth covering, rather than just the obvious hit singles. Ghostwheel does this particularly well. We get the lost B-side classic \"Sea of Sin\", a heart-breaking version of \"Sometimes\", and \"Darkest Star\" turned into a better track than The Mode did on \'Playing the Angel\'. I have many Mode cover albums, but this is easily the one with most thought put into it, and is an essential purchase for all Depeche Mode devotees.
