Christian Kleine Real Ghosts
- Words: J. David Marston
- Label: City Center Offices
Germany's Kleine, of Herrmann & Kleine fame, initiates a new direction with his second solo effort, away from the plink-plonk of past expeditions. One misses the Dr. Seuss of electrics as he trifles with more conventional rock and roll arrangements. There are moments of euphoric and no doubt delightful gain, but the directness of this album is too symmetrical, truncating his vision at precisely the wrong moments. Real Ghosts leaves one haunted with nostalgia for the past, while remaining entirely respectful of the present and Kleine's musical acumen.
