Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars A Staple in Your Ani Collection June 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars tied for my favorite Feb. 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is going to go down as one of my favorite albums of all time. It was my first album by ani and to this day i could listin to it whether i am happy or sad or lonely or content. It is a beautiful, beautiful album. It has some of the best songs possibly ever written like buildings and bridges and face up and sing. Its simply a pleasure to listen to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to Ani Oct. 20 2003
By Kevin
Format:Audio CD
This was my first Ani CD when she was touring to promote it back in the nineties. While it's not her best, it's a great introduction to an artist in transition from an acoustic folk singer to something a little more diverse. Her later albums contain broader influences and more complex orchestrations with a greater variety of instruments. I think this album shows that she was beginning to feel the limitations of being simply a girl with a guitar and ready to try something different...

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest singer/songwriter ever... April 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
As an avid Ani fan, I own all of her CD's. Though it is quite hard to pick a favorite, I would have to say that this is one of the best! Face Up and Sing is a great song along with Out of
Range. All the songs are phenomenal! This is a great CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing April 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
If perfection were recorded onto a disc, it'd be this CD. This is my all-time favorite CD not just from Ani, but from any artist. Every song is beautiful and takes you to a new place. It's the first Ani CD I bought so I creadit it to getting me hooked on her. If you're already a fan or thinking about adding some Ani to your CD collection this is a great place to start. It's AMAZING. Buy it, buuuuuuy it...

Out Of Range is the perfect midpoint of Ani DiFranco's catalog, even as she moves farther and farther away from the aural and social concepts that it represents. It represents a perfect balance of sweet and sour, whether it be the sparse but beautiful "Falling Is Like This" or the clinking silverware and snotty tissues in "The Diner." It dispenses with preaching in favor of simply telling off, relies on intuitively simple arrangements to surround her unmistakable guitar playing, and trades overt gender politics for a noticeable tone of women's lib throughout.
Forget about her aesthetics, many as they have been; this is Ani DiFranco doing what she does best: illustrating her life with her lyrics and guitar. An absolute MUST HAVE regardless of whether or not you're a fan (and, afterwards you might be).

I think Ani is one of the most amazing and honest of my time. She should be a role model for every female.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow Oct. 19 2002
By lo
Format:Audio CD
Out of Range is definitely one of my favorite studio recordings of ani. I love them all, but it probably gets the most play. It is amazing. I can listen to the cd over and over and still do not get bored with it.
The title song is played so powerfully; buildings and bridges...aahh, just great, could listen to it forever; not to mention beautiful songs on this album such as you had time and overlap. But seriously, i can't imagine my cd collection without this - something would be sorely missing.
I HIGHLY recommend this cd to ANY music lover; it's wonderful!
