Glen Campbell – Ghost on the Canvas (2011)

Share this:

Stricken with Alzheimer’s, Glen Campbell has announced that this is will be his final album — and it’s pretty strong, save for the terrible cover of Guided By Voices’ “Hold On Hope” — with its awful abuse of autotune (seems to be absent elsewhere, not sure why it’s on this one) and I think he missed the ironic sentiment of a band like GBV doing a traditional ballad.

It’s pretty hokey, and it sticks out like a sore thumb where the other tunes are really solid. Somber, but I really like this. He’s definitely going out on top. Glen Campbell’s Ghost on the Canvas is due Aug. 29 on Surfdog Records.
