When I first saw the CD advertised, I originally thought it was a album by one of the other members of The Wildhearts, who I have nothing against, but I do have to budget my money when purchasing music, but wasn't till I read a review of the album that I realise it was his nibs himself.
Anyhow, enough of that fascinating anecdote, this record does remind be a little of "The Wildhearts must be destroyed", it quite a commercial sounding album, but still rock & roll.
What adds an extra dimension the songs is Victoria Liedke vocals, which really blend well with Gingers, to offer something new & bright to his already massive musical cannon.
Most of the tracks offer a positive message (most), which gives the record a nice "don't' scrutinise the music too much, just enjoy", which you need on occasion (not every album has to change the world).
You also receive a fee "Black Valentine" single, which has two none album B-sides (that's one for the kids!), "Wacky Women" & "She's a Beauty", great sassy rock song, with Victoria on lead vocals.
So a highly enjoyable album, a as with all of Gingers extra-curricular activities, he puts 100% effort in making it the best record he can.

As much as I love the prolific amount of quality output that Ginger seems to put out these days, my one 'complaint' is that editing process can be a bit lacking, leading to perfectly good 3 minute songs meandering off in different directions and ending up double the length, sometimes out staying their welcome. This doesn't bother me particularly, as I tend to lap up each new release regardless, but I can see how this may not be the best approach to expanding past the usual hardcore fan base.

If you are a more casual fan put off by the above, than this is the LP for you! Short, almost perfectly formed 3-4 minute bursts of 'bubblegum' rock (for want of a better description), with the delightful vocals of Victoria Liedtke featuring prominently, makes for a much more uplifting, easier listening experience. Would like to point out the stand out tracks, but be honest after a few listens even some of the ones that sound bland(er) to start with prove to be just as good as the rest....so just get a copy already!

Ginger will be a legend. In two hundred years time, his cd's will be pulled out of the ashes. And like artists, question will be asked. Why wasn't he more popular in his time? He's one of the best songwriters of our generation. Every review - fan or professional - states the same.

The answer is simple. Mr Ginger, you've got to cut your ear off!

The man is just a workaholic genius. This output seems to be getting more airplay and more attention than anything the ginger one's done for a long time. True, it's a bit more commercial than the wildhearts but most of his solo stuff is. Could it be something to do with his collaborator on this occasion who, let's face it, is slightly easier on the eye than Random John Poole (tho I know he has lots of admirers!)

Along with 555 the best of Gingers recent output. Catchy pop tunes with a punk edge.
