Script error: No such module "Unsubst-infobox". Template:Music ratings Ghost of David is an album by the singer-songwriter Damien Jurado, released in 2000 on Sub Pop.[1][2]

The title comes from a dream Jurado had in which his friend and former bandmate David Bazan had died.[3]

Critical reception

AllMusic wrote: "Another strong collection of urban folk songs from Damien Jurado, Ghost of David builds on the gentle, friendly loneliness of Rehearsals for Departure and deepens it with a spiritual, often otherworldly feel."[4] No Depression wrote that "'Ghost In The Snow' and 'Paxil' see Jurado at his best, music and meaning waltzing with each other in a death march that is fascinating to behold."[5] Trouser Press called Ghost of David "a powerful, haunting album that should be kept far, far away from depressives."[3] SF Weekly called it "a gracefully stripped-down mix of personality and invention, a record in the powerful, simple vein of Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska."[6]
