Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

Out of Range marks the end of the first phase of Ani DiFranco's career, not so much in terms of the way she goes about her business (as always, on her own terms) but in terms of her songwriting, arranging, performing, and, to a greater extent than ever before, growing popularity. On Range, for the first time, DiFranco's songs sound like they wouldn't be out of place on the radio (in this case, that's a good thing); on the very first track, "Buildings and Bridges," she expresses herself with greater grace and subtlety than ever before. But the message is still loud and clear: she can take what the world will throw at her, and she will persevere. The rest of the album unfolds along similar lines and often reveals similar treasures. --Randy Silver

Out of range is probably one of the greatest albums (not just ani albums) I have ever heard. While no two songs sound the same, the album is more like a folk symphony. I think this is achieved not through careful editing and sequenceing, but through Ani's innate ability to put her emotions carefully and precisely into her songwriting. Out Of Range has a continuity found rarely in her contemporaries. Now, the individual songs...where can one start? Buildings and Bridges has a lyric so profound that it leaves the listener barely able to escape a few days of serious soul searching. Hearing this song live was one of my life's highlights. 'Letter to a john' is a staple song at any ani show. And with good reason. It explores the traumatic life of a stripper while providing an inspirational door through which independence can be reached. Listen. It will explain much better than I can. 'Face Up and Sing' is a calling to women to basically grow up in their 'efforts' for feminism. 'Hell Yeah' is my favorite by far, though. I can only repeat our favorite folkster, "Life is a B-Movie, it's stupid and it's strange. It's a directionless story, and the dialougue is lame. But in the 'he-said, she-said, sometimes there's some poetry,if you turn your back long enough, and let it happen naturally. Oh yeah. Hell yeah." Hell Yeah...

I have to say, this was a lot better than I thought it would be. My best friend hounded me for ages, begging me to start listening to Ani. Hey, I love Tori and Alanis, so Ani DiFranco ought to be the next member of my Goddesses of Music Pantheon.
So I listened. I've heard most of Ani's music, but never owned one of her CDS. Out of Range was my first. I enjoyed several of the tracks ("If He Tries Anything" will forever be the song I associate with Charles de Lint's Crow Girls). However...it only reinforced, in my mind, the kind of militant feminism that has made Ani so poular, and, to my mind, so irritating. It's as though she believes that every man in the world is an abusive, wife-beating, child molester, and that all women are inherently spunky, sweet creatures who need to find their own fire. Perhaps the reason I dislike her so much is that I found my own a long time ago.

This is definitely a MUST for any Ani fan, or for those who want to indoctrinate themselves...It's visceral, immediate, pure Ani, and it's amazing from beginning to end...It's songs stand on their own, but together in an album they are pure magic. In my opinion the first standout is 'Buildings and Bridges' - you can't not stop and take notice of this song in which she draws parallels on the necessity of one's ability to shift, grow, change, and ultimately accept life, by comparing it to the necessity of the built environment (a human creation) to bear the shifting tides of the earth. The thoughtful observation, pure emotion and truth of what she is saying creates a song with magnitude and breadth. 'Falling is Like This' is gorgeous. 'You Had Time' is so quintessential Ani - haunting, sad, layered, a foreshadow of the great artist she has, and continues to become. Don't miss it.

OK, so you loved NOT A PRETTY GIRL, IMPERFECTLY and PUDDLE DIVE and you want another album by Ani that's "kind of like those". You're in luck -- there's one left! It's called OUT OF RANGE and it's great.
(Not that the earlier, more simple albums and the later, more synthesized albums aren't great too, but this one sort of rounds out the 'in-your-face folk style quadrilogy".)
Songs like OVERLAP capture deeply personal moments with anger, longing and guts.
YOU HAD TIME is about wishing you loved someone that you know is a good match for you, and who -- even worse -- ouch -- happens to love you deeply.
And of course, there's her trademark political FACE UP AND SING, which is probably the reason for the cliche, "You go, girl." :)
It's another must-have in your Classic Ani collection.
