Poor By Ginger Standards
on 21 April 2014
There's one thing Ginger's been doing recently. And that's writing an awful lot of music.
Unfortunately this is one release too far. It's a mess of an album, filled with some great ideas but with overlong songs and with a sense that "The Ginger Wildheart Band" doesn't actually know what it is.
So you're probably wondering why I have given it 3 stars. Bearing in mind that I am reviewing the 10 track CD Release, there are two songs I will definitely add to my Favourite tracks playlist. Those being the opener, Drive and the first "single" Body Parts.
And there are some great musical bits throughout the rest, but whoever produced the album needed to strip it down. A classic example of this is the 10 Minute closer Albion. Some brilliant music with a massive amount of filler. It reminds me of a Pink Floyd closing song, only worse.
From reading the reviews, this album is not a "Best Of" the original album of 15 songs. Which of course it should be. So when I buy a 10 song CD I expect to get 7/8 damn fine tunes.
So if you want to listen to a damn good Ginger album, then buy the Hey Hello one instead. Here's hoping for better next time.
