Ginger Leigh - _10 Stories, 10 Lies_
(RLM, 2002)
by: Xander Hoose (7.5 out of 10)
How does one define originality? The question rises from time to time, when coming upon certain albums. Ginger Leigh's _10 Stories, 10 Lies_ is one such album. Continuing the electronic / industrial onslaught of previous albums, _10 Stories, 10 Lies_ contains thirteen songs that are unique in many aspects but share great similarities with other artists on the other side: when one listens to the middle-eastern percussion and the scraping beats, break-genius Muslimgauze comes to mind. However, Muslimgauze has always limited his experiments, whereas Ginger Leigh takes a far wider spectrum of noises and sounds and integrates them into his music. Ranging from passive drones to hyperactive industrial walls of sound, there is enough for the listener to experience and enjoy. I am a little discontent with the production, though: a somewhat heavier mix wouldn't hurt the songs at all.
