Ginger Leigh - _A True Life Story_
(Masuno, 2003)
by: Xander Hoose (8.5 out of 10)
Continuing where he left with _10 Stories, 10 Lies_, _A True Life Story_ is a more nuanced journey into the realms of harsh electronics, subtle hums and devastating feedback by Ginger Leigh. The album has a more aesthetic feeling to it when compared to _10 Stories, 10 Lies_, the compositions are better, and there is a better balance between loud and soft. Having a somewhat cleaner mix causes the songs to seem more vivid; there isn't much that Ginger Leigh and Muslimgauze have in common, because of the entirely opposite direction Ginger Leigh is moving in. The tracks on _A True Life Story_ are more song-oriented, and are very melodic even in all their electronic harshness compared to Muslimgauze's anti-melodies. _A True Life Story_ is not for the faint of heart, but then again, it's not for the breakcore-addicts either: the album contains too few brutal beats and has too many passive moments. For those who appreciate the subtle shades of industrial, _A True Life Story_ is definitely worth checking out.
