      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Ginger keeps developing and no matter what style he takes on his song-writing shines through

      This is the most eclectic mix of styles yet on a Ginger release and completely different from his Wildhearts material genre-wise, although his unique song-writing style can be spotted a mile off. Opener is an acousticy uplifting pop tune, then the album goes through instrumentals, classic Ginger songs like 'Queen Of Leaving', the oddball oompah-pah of 'House Of Moths' and the even odder 'You and Me (That's What I want)' sung by children (!). Couple Trouble (with guest vocalist) sounds like a 50's/60's vocal group but has Ginger's sense of humour dripping off the lyrics. Closer 'Shatterproof' has one of Ginger's recurring subject matters of being stronger than anything you can throw at him "To hurt me, you've got to beat me, but to beat me, you've got to kill me............. how can you kill something that will not die?"
      This album IS different from Ginger's earlier work, but it's SO compelling and varied it makes it one of my favourites (Valor Del Corazon is my favourite of his solo albums). It's certainly better than Yoni, so if you were a bit disappointed by that, try again with this one :-)

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Ginger proves his dynamic ability and songwriting skills once again

      The amazingly charismatic and outrageous frontman of The Wildhearts is back with a follow up to his critically acclaimed album, Yoni. Gingers takes a very different approach to writing his solo music which is very different from The Wildhearts.

      This album consists of the typical solo Ginger jangly guitar sound though it is a lot less rock 'n' roll than Yoni. The album also consists of a staggering twenty one tracks.

      The first track, Casino Bay, kicks off with very familiar lyrics and a very recognizable melody indeed which can also be heard on a completely different song on Ginger's first solo release, A Break In The Weather. The Queen Of Leaving spices things up a bit with some heavy distortion, a catchy vocal melody and a fast pace. Others tracks are a little intriguing such as Awareness And The Great Integrity, A Philosophical Conversation About Age and Regret.com.

      As we all know, with Ginger every song's a good one and here's twenty one of them all on one cd released by Round Records and distributed by Cargo Records.
