To them, I said: "She already made like a gazillion albums in her other style! She recorded more songs already than most artists ever will. How long was she supposed to keep going before trying something new?" I figure she has to either reinvent herself or get bored, and I think she made the right choice
I think this album is a TRIUMPH. It's mopey, honest, and absolutely heartfelt. Her lyrics are just as smart as ever.
SUPERHERO is a fantastic song about how when we fall in love, we all become ridiculous cliches ... no matter how 'above it' we thought we were before.
ADAM AND EVE is a powerful, brooding feminist statement about men who "leave you in the morning".
OUT OF ME, ONTO YOU is more or less ... a curse on someone you hate.
I think DILATE is a gem, and every Ani fan should take it back out again and listen to it with fresh ears.
Dilate marks a time when Ani was experimenting with her sound. This is evidenced by the frequent use of electric guitars, drum machine tracks, and samples. The vocal tracks also sound very different than any other Difranco record. When I first heard the sound of the vocals I was immediately reminded of Suzanne Vega.
Playing this record very loudly from beginning to end, the listener will experience an explosion of emotion. Dilate is a beautiful record and a must have for any passionate music fan.
