Released: Mar 2006
Label: Def Jam
Crackling samples, loose soul loops and doo-wop harmonies waft through the mix as Ghost pleads, coos and threatens on vignettes "Beauty Jackson," "Crackspot" and "Big Girl." The LP is bathed in shadows and dread, and populated with characters held hostage by cruelty and obsession, making Fishscale the equivalent of postmodern urban noir. Another classic from Ghost.
