Best version to get is the UK CD release on Warp. Has both excellent De-Orbit and Pepper tracks, which are missing from the USA version & been replaced by 2 cheesy dance tracks instead.

Make sure to get the UK CD version rather the USA CD version.

Had some of my best ever trips and comedowns listening to this wonderful album. De-Orbit and Beam Me Up! are my standouts. The latter mixes brilliantly with the Derrick May mix of Sueno Latino.

R2D2, oh god i think im about to cry.......not just speedy j's best tune but quite possibly the best example of bleep noises making you want to well up and start bawling your eyes out.....everytime i hear it, it makes me think of r2 standing next to a window in Coruscant, reflecting on the loss of life at the hands of the empire and han's bleek future....
...and why he's stuck with an annoying gold gaybot as a best friend...

Fantastic for its day and age, unquestionably it is. The only thing that strikes me even more is how Speedy J has sucessfully outdone himself with the next one, G-Spot". While "Ginger" displays a musical innocence he never looked backed to, as a producer and craftman, Jochem Paap only evolved and went on to forge even greater things afterwards. It's a great album, though, which showcases a broad array of sounds and ideas that would later on prove to be staples in a fair chunk of IDM albums. With an impressive ease he moves through various stops of electronic music; be it trance, soulful techno, slick electro or straight up ambient, the man rocks it like very few can. Full of deep, emotional tunes which don't move with haste, but deliver thoroughably enjoyable and dense material suitable for couch embracing afternoons.
It may never fully master the trancey IDM territory like his sophomore album does, and it will hardly ever reach or gain the thought provoking, genre bending and challenging status "Public energy #1" and "A shocking hobby" have, but nevertheless, "Ginger" remains a must own to fans of early Warp, Plus 8 and R & S Records. It skilfully embodies the overall feel electronic music can provide you with through a single album. It's lovely. One of those old school gems where the 'dare do' mentality is shamelessly clasped in both arms. 4/5.

What a great piece of electronic music, silky & smooth, clean produced but there is something that no one write about & is the similar between the track Flashback & the William Orbit's Hardcore Mix of Kraftwerk's Radioactivity, only avaiable on the US 12'' edition of the track [Elektra 0-66486,1991] & it is not only the bassline with the same notes & same execution, more elements sounds similar but one track is before than the other so you judge.

Fill 14, Pepper, De-orbit, and Beam me up! are the highlights of this silky electro thing. It isn't really good on the audio side, but the ideas are still effective.

A classic. Beautiful, discreet, warm, crystalline - "Ginger" is all of these and more. The vinyl version of "Pepper" is different, more upbeat, than that on the CD.
