something tells me I've been here before 5 April 2003
By Keir H. Fogarty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this album is known in official circles as a trip-hop album, but it really does stand alone. Lesley Rankine brings the attitude and daring of such past projects as Pigface and Silverfish, and lets it flow out in a celebration of a woman's sexuality. trip-hop--I'd say not--more like trip-punk--she doesn't have the "trained" voice typical of most trip-hop divas, but rather her singing is like the grit and core of her feeling and femininity coming out raw, and thats what makes it so alluring--if this was morcheeba's skye edwards or even portishead's beth gibbons, this album would lose 90% of its power--this is straight from the gut, but still has the beauty of femininity blooming like a flower-------the music made by Mark Walk to accompany Ms. Rankine is matched exceedingly well to her voice--this album isn't suppossed to relax you, it isn't suppossed to bathe you in melancholy--it grabs you, frightens you, slaps you with the funky rhythm that is sexuality--its an onslaught of the feminine sexuality that has been trapped, suppressed, enslaved for a lamentable portion of our recent history--the pressure has finally built up to breaking point, and is being released with explosive force--and the funny thing is...its catchy as hell, fun to listen to, equally great for the dance floor and the bedroom--it came out a long time ago, and I am surprised every time I listen to it with how fresh it sounds

The whole is equal to the sum of its parts 29 Jun. 2004
By Erica Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard of Lesley Rankine when she was in the rock band Silverfish back in the mid'90s. I was an avid fan of alternative music. After Silverfish, I read that she had a new project that was a lot different than Silverfish called Ruby. I bought "Salt Peter" when I lived a block away from this great independent record store called Atomic Records. I found a used copy one day and I decided to throw caution to the wind and bought it. It is really hard to describe Ruby's music but I guess it is a good mix of trip hop and industrial music. A lot of the songs on this cd does have that raw, industrial edge to its beats while there are elements of trip hop at the same time. "Salt Peter" is one of those albums that took me a few listens to get into but eventually I grew to love this music. There are moments throughout the cd that I was reminded of Portishead and Morcheeba but overall Ruby definitely has a sound of their own. Lesley Rankine's vocals just oozes of sexuality and certainly her lyrics like "Heidi" (one of my personal favorite songs on the cd) and "Tiny Meat". I think Ruby was way ahead of its time when trip hop and industrial music wasn't really recognized.

Reviset Ruby! 27 Jun. 2005
By P. Iannelli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've owned this album since 1995, and just recently reviseted it. I am amzed at how timeless it is. The lyrics are still amazingly provocative, and the beats still move me.Maybe I'm living in the past but this could come out in 2005, and still be innovative and beautiful. If you dont buy a used copy for 1 cent , sorry for you. Underated artist , and album. It was in 1995, and is still in 2005.

RUBY IS WONDERFUL, JAZZY, SEXY, COOL, and EERIE. 13 Dec. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have had this album for a long time and I can not believe that there is only one customer review. People should be buying this one like crazy...if you like depth, electronic rock like NIN, Bjork and Morcheeba...then you will love her too. She is her own person, but in this genre. This CD really gets you movin' and thinkin'.

Fantastic Mid-90s electronica 3 Feb. 2003
By heidi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
At the time I first purchased this album (96), I was a bit skeptical. I was sort of a record snob, and she was on a major label. This album stayed on heavy rotation for the next two years, however, until I unwisely loaned it out, never to be seen again. Songs like "Swallow Baby" blew my teenage mind with their empowered sexuality, classic vocals, and grungy (not the Seattle kind) electronics. I find myself mentioning her more and more to people lately, and these younguns haven't had the pleasure of her company yet. If you haven't either, please do yourself the favor of picking it up, and not ever loaning it out.
