Ginger Leigh - _From Artesia With Love_
(Independent, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
I reviewed Ginger Leigh's _Broken by the World_ back in CoC #51, an interesting disc that offered the listener a unique blend of industrial beats and bizarre ideas rolled into one. While not really metal for the most part, Ginger Leigh offered the metal masses a solid realm of heaviness that consisted of electronic snippets and distortion. While less electronic based that the past work, Ginger Leigh's new disc scopes out a very atmospheric soundscape, led by a lot of percussion work and a sitar. Interesting enough, these ideas only take up a portion of the record, with a good enough portion focusing on the industrial drive (Godflesh, Nine Inch Nails) that encompassed the first outing. While different from the last record, it is quite evident that Ginger Leigh likes to explore new ideas and keep the door wide open, never really pigeon-holing the sound and direction. The work of Ginger Leigh is far from done. There will be more.
