A Ghost In The Arcade

Idlewild
Despite the poetic promise of the title – imagine a ghost in your local arcade, it would put you off while you played on the fruities – this is a dispiritingly (no pun intended) straightforward workout in undemanding big rock . About 90 seconds in it decides to kick the volume up several notches and threatens to get quite impressive, but the threat is sadly not carried out. ‘Meh’ is the word.
