While it's nowhere near on par with the Poco of the late '60s and '70s, Ghost Town is surprisingly polished, AOR-friendly classic rock with a country tinge. Very similar in warmth and production values to the Eagles (a group that Poco member Timothy B. Schmit would eventually join), the songs are pleasant but easily forgettable in comparison to the rest of their catalog. Moments like the eponymous title track, "How Will You Feel Tonight," and "Shoot for the Moon" offer glimpses of the band's glory years, but the rest of the album fades into the "classic rock" mists whence it came.
