iTunes Review

On Ghosts Upon the Earth, Gungor approaches the story of the world’s fall and redemption with fresh eyes and an adventurous spirit. Michael and Lisa Gungor may sing in subdued, almost murmuring tones, but the message they express is alive with awestruck joy, honoring the Creator in deeply personal, mystically-tinged language. Together with their band mates, they embellish their idiosyncratic style of liturgical folk/rock with bluegrass instrumental flourishes, shimmering orchestral strings and surging techno beats. “Crags and Clay,” “You Are the Beauty” and “Brother Moon” are prime examples of Gungor’s eclectic, multi-layered approach, far removed from the typical arena-pop bombast of modern praise music. Particularly outstanding are “Let There Be” (built around a soaring choir and an oscillating electronica groove) and “Wake Up Sleeper” (framing Lisa’s earnest vocals with skittering, jazz-tinged violins). At once otherworldly and immediate, Ghosts Upon the Earth is the sort of quirky yet compelling worship project that Christian music could use more of.

Customer Reviews

Worship meets true creativity...

This is NOT your typical worship album. This is NOT your normal "Christian radio-friendly" album. Gungor's latest offering is a progression in sound and style from "Beautiful Things," certainly taking flavors of that album but pushes those musical thoughts to their natural conclusion. The result is an incredible song-picture of God's love for His creation, tuned to an Indie/Folk sound. Even though this album is not very "corporate," it is very Biblical... the creation/redemption motif is very pointed, and very beautifully presented. One has to respect the craftsmanship and skill in this production, and I truly think that this kind of creativity should be promoted more in Christian music. I recommend this album highly.

While I'm not a Christian...

This album sounds like Heaven to me. The production is amazing, as our their voices and the entire vibe. VERY well done! :)

I don't know what to say...

I'm not sure whether this is a really bad album, or a really good album... Well it's not really bad at all, but it does leave me a bit confused to some things that go far beyond the music itself...

This group is like kettle corn; it's an acquired taste. Why? The style is very different, which is good, especially since the music itself is so VERY creative and fun to listen to, but at the same time, I'm realizing that they have worked in various ways of putting things, and you can't really determine the statements' alliances to scripture as sharply as most other Christian groups I've encountered... NOT so good. I encountered this a little with their Beautiful Things CD (my first time hearing them), but I'm encountering it more in this CD than I have in the past, and the more I listen to the CD, the more I am left wondering... Who are these people, and what exactly do they believe? The gospel they preach is indeed the gospel, but it is far from simple. There are few songs on this CD that I would give to someone I'm witnessing to and say "Listen to this! It's great!" As a matter of fact, I would only give this to someone I know to be well versed in scripture because many of the themes could be approached from SO many different angles that it would make for a very confusing situation for someone hears "Mother Earth, giving us life" in the song Brother Moon and not recognize that as NOT SCRIPTUAL in the LEAST bit...

While I can appreciate many of the deeper themes that are created, I can't appreciate the complexity to which they are brought about. But I still like Gungor... I'll give them one more chance (on their next CD) before I write them off completely. But as far as this CD, there are too many shadowy moments of "what exactly are they saying here" to really appreciate Christ through the CD as a whole. I could easily pick out one or two songs and listen to those, but I would still be left wondering who these people are that I'm listening to? I would no more listen to a Christian with false pieces of doctrine than I would Beyonce or Jay-Z. I would want to know 100% of the time that the doctrine they are pushing is true if I'm gonna listen to ANYTHING that they put out.


Genre: Alternative

Gungor are a baroque pop, folk, and experimental rock-influenced collective centered on the husband-and-wife duo of Michael and Lisa Gungor. Although Gungor grew out of a Christian musical background and have often included spiritual concepts in their music, they do not consider themselves a CCM band. Raised in Wisconsin, Michael spent his formative years leading worship services with his pastor father. He attended Oral Roberts University (where he first met fellow musician Lisa) and later studied...
