5.0 out of 5 stars Beauty in its Purest Form! May 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Ani is unique in many ways from her music to her poetry. She defentally has opened my eyes to the world that we live in. I have listened and chereshed Ani sence the begining, all 14 years and all 25 albums or so,(I even met her) and I have seen her music evolve, but when i look back I always go to this album. "Like I Said" is a album of poetry and simplistic music of Ani and her guitar. The three most chereshable Ani songs are featured on this CD: Fire Door, Out of Habit, and most importantaly Both Hands. Ani's music has defined a generation. Buy it and you WILL love it.
If she ever comes to your town see her live and you will understand why music is here!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classics by an esteemed artist. June 21 2002
Format:Audio CD
Ani Difranco is now the patron saint of artist who make it on their own. Through her copious energy and sheer strength of will, she has become a popular icon, a heroine and an inspiration to many.
But her success was not always assured. Back before the magazine covers, the duets with Prince, the sold-out shows and screaming fans, she was a struggling young artist with little chance of making it in the music industry. These songs are from that time period. And although not as polished or experimentally mixed as her later material, these songs show a raw passion in a young musician who wants, not to be liked, but to be respected. And over a decade later, the album still feels fresh and powerful.
Songs like "Anticipate", "Rush Hour", and "The Slant" show how she is able to experiment musically, using her voice and guitar in new ways to express strong emotions. Her abilites as a singer/songwriter/poet were firmly established by such lyrical works of art as "Not So Soft" and "Out of Habit". And lest anyone confuse her for a fluffy bit of entertainment, her bold political stances are made clear in "Gratitude", "Work Your Way Out", and nearly every other song to one degree or another.
Ani Difranco's later albums range from polished masterpieces to tired and mellow collections. She is now all grown up, married, having bucked the system and created her own. It's inspiring to see an artist change and grow and mellow, and yet never give up her principles. But sometimes it's exciting to peek back to the days when she had to work for every fan, when each tiny college concert meant one more day of having enough money to eat. These songs are from that time, and they're a joy to hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars great place for you to start... March 11 2002
Format:Audio CD
ani difranco is still one of america's most underrated and important artists alive today. ms.difranco happens to be one of the few artists i know who is indeed a self-made pop star. here is one of lesser known albums which i sat down to digest recently and i'm glad to say it's a new member of my cd family. like i said just happens to be a great place to start for all those interested in ani whereas five years ago i probably would've told you to try not a pretty girl or dilate perhaps. this cd is basically a compilation of her first two albums and i've read or been told that these are actually remixes of the originals though i'm not for certain. ms.difranco has a lovely voice which doesn't sound forced but yet is undeniably powerful. on this cd, we find an intoxicating and stimulating hearing experience of spoken poetry over acoustic guitars alongside beautiful balads which stay in your head for nearly days. i'm singing both hands as i'm writing this review. be sure and check this one out real soon. happy listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unlike anyone else March 1 2002
By Dave
Format:Audio CD
This was the first Ani CD I purchased and will always be special. It takes songs from her first 2 CD's and there isn't a bad one on here. Various styles from the spoken "Not So Soft" and "The Slant" [no-one can speak a song like Ani] to the gorgeous "Both Hands" It is unfair to pick out tracks but "Whole Night" makes me laugh & "Gratitude" is a cutting song. All Ani's songs have a story to tell and I for one will go on listening to her tales.

4.0 out of 5 stars cut [it out] July 7 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
ani's best songwriting cropped up in the late 80s and early 90s, culminating with "like i said". it's too bad her fan base has gone teenybopper now (a bunch of 14-year-old self-proclaimed bisexuals who aren't gonna take it anymore 'til they get new cars), but it's nice sometimes to pop this 'un in and have a good listen. the songs on this album are pretty universal and after a decade, have withstood the test of time. this is one of those albums that doesn't get old. 's a classic, and it deserves a listen.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ani is My Favorite Artist; My Mentor; but... Oct. 31 2000
Format:Audio CD
I haven't been listening to Ani for very long because I only recently heard of her when my friend finally made me go and see her live with no previous knowledge about her. Since then, I have gone through and bought each one of her major studio releases (tallying 11, I believe), and then started working my way through her EPs and then this one. However, I am disappointed to have to report that this album is not up to par. The album seems to me like a mockery of the wonderful songs that I worship. You see, the two albums that these songs came off were accoustic and completely performed by Ani, while this one is a re-do of some of those songs with a backing band. However, the backing band in most of the songs isn't necessary, and it was as if she felt a need to have one, so she assigned the members random jobs. For instance, on "Out of Habit", one of her best songs, she adds in this funny little conga-like drum to add a beat to a song that doesn't need one. I think she should've left her songs the way they were, because they were perfect.
