Pepper’s Ghost released in 2005. While the writing process followed the usual pattern – Clive, Mick and John working separately on ideas and then combining them together into well-structured compositions, the album also features extravagant pieces like Opera Fanatica, Clive’s instrumental epic, which is far from the usual Arena style. Pepper’s Ghost is a conceptual album based around the subject of various signs of madness, which together with a masterly artistic design of a booklet creates an impressive result.
