The Canadian equivalent of Tears for Fears or Duran Duran, Frozen Ghost's total output spawned only three full-length albums and a few singles of marginal note. Lead singer Arnold Lanni was best known for his work in soft rock supergroup Sheriff, and while traces of his work in Sheriff skim the surface from time to time, Frozen Ghost are a synth-friendly up-tempo band first and foremost. This Essentials collection starts off with two of their most well-known hits -- "Should I See" and the hauntingly beautiful ballad "Dream Come True" -- and works its way through to the band's harder-rocking output of the early '90s before the group decided to call it quits. This is the most concise survey of Frozen Ghost's output available, and given the scarce availability of their original recorded works, it may be the most beneficial primer and idea collection for fans to own.
