OK, so you bought NOT A PRETTY GIRL and went wild. Then you bought IMPERFECTLY and you still want more. So PUDDLE DIVE should be next on your list.
Right from the opening track -- her voice hits hard vibrato that you ... didn't know was humanly possible -- and the acoustic guitar is so fierce it makes your fingers hurt, just listening. And that's just the first track!
Later, you'll get to hear the deceptively sexy love song (always with her unusually phrased lyrics) called ANYDAY and the very passionate WILLING TO FIGHT.
Not an album to be missed, if you love Ani DiFranco. I remember a period of time when it seemed to be her most popular.

This was one of the later Ani albums I bought, starting with Out of Range, jumping to Little Plastic Castle (which was brand new at the time)and jumping around from there.
After her recent change of style (from 6up on) I was looking for more of that familiar "out of range" sound.... THIS WAS IT! Not quite as razor-edged as Dilate, not as simple as her self-titled debut, this album was like digging into the memories of that first year back in High school I spent absorbing all things Ani.
A few hits, a few minor misses, and as always, her prophetic, insightful lyrics.

Is this your first Ani Difranco CD? It should be. Ani Difranco's styles range from slow rock blue to hard core punk to swing jazz; but if you're looking to start a collection with her, start here. This CD has something for everyone, the tunes have an upbeat and catchy rhythm and great lyrics. Even if you don't buy another Cd from her, you won't be able to turn down this. The bottom line is it's good music. It's not (as) violent as some of her stuff, but if you're an avid fan you'll still find the old spirit in there too. Still edgy on buying it? Here's some advice from a girl who owns all Ani's music; take a leap of faith and buy it already.

I was happy to read some of the lower reviews here, some criticism to mix it up. Any old fan can just gush on about how AWESOME there fav artist is, and certainly Ani has more than her share of fanatical followers. I was one of them; now I've moved on to more vital artists.
Most real Ani fans agree that "Out of Range" is her best, most gutsy, accessible album; the best album to start with. But I like to champion "Puddle Dive", for the simple reason that it best shows off her skills as a songwriter. Listen to those lyrics-- they're about nothing! Tiny everyday insignificant moments-- getting a speeding ticket, snot, coffee, making a new friend. And yet that's the talent of a songwriter, to take those moments and make them universal and important, to fit them into the bigger picture. All these songs just seem to fit together for me, as much a real album as she's done. And its a great snapshot of her in transition. "Puddle Dive" still astonishes me at times.
I haven't bought or even listened to anything since "Castles"-- she's just too prolific, and there's so much other important music out there. But her first six+ albums, all the way up to "Pretty Girl", are incredible, important stuff.

I had heard of Ani for years before I finally gave in and purchased a CD. I had thought I would not be into it. Dear God, as soon as I slipped this CD in, I fell in love with it. It goes on my top 5 albums of my lifetime, I highly recommend this to anyone who is ready to experience, a cool, strong women, who can really belt it out, and play guitar like you can't believe. This album started me on my Ani craze, 5 years ago, and my insanity keeps going strong! Buy this CD!!!!

But she has better albums. This is a good album, but not necessarily a fabulous Ani album.. I can listen to whole Ani albums and not feel the urge to press the forward button, but this is not one of them. Certainly, it has wonderful tracks, particularly 'Anyday', '4th of July' and 'Pick yer Nose', but I must confess I find some of the tracks exceptionally irritating, particularly 'Names Dates and Time' (I don't know why, I find it grating!) and 'Blood in the Boardroom.' I am by no means a prude, but that strikes me as a particularly crude track and beyonds the realms of mere feminism.. She seems more like a joyful girl on this album, and while it is Ani and therefore marvellous, there are higher degrees of marvellous I am afraid!

I usually write semi-long-winded reviews, but this one is open and shut. I love this c.d. It is just fun to listen to and even better to sing along to. If you have this one, you've got yourself a keeper.
