what is it with these people reviewing ani's albums and bitching about ani's left-wing politics and how that makes the albums go from great to just good?!?!

other than her great song-writing ability and ultra-personal lyrics that strike a chord with listeners, what makes ani ani is her unapologetic criticisms of mainstream and conservative politics...... i dont think she'd appreciate knowing that some of her "fans" are apparently politically apathetic and complacent.... It's one thing if you don't agree with her politics, but the impression i get from these reviewers is that they'd rather live in a self-imposed bubble where they can view life through rose-colored glasses. if you want that go listen to avril lavigne or someone equally as vapid.

other than that though i am one of those people that prefers her earlier stuff. I dont think she pulls of this jazz/fusion direction she's taking, there aren't hooks to the songs and her lyrics just don't carry the same punch that they used to.

This album contains everything that I love about Ani diFranco. And everything that infuriates me about her.
Let's start with the bad news: the unadulteralted rinky-dink left-wing whining is in full force here. "Your Next Bold Move" is SO full of potential, but it alternates thoughtful writing with drivel about the plague of Reagan and Bush or the left wing being broken or... god, I don't know, just a lot of political ranting that diFranco doesn't even try to dress up as art. And much later comes "Subdivision," which starts out "White people are so afraid of Black people that..." Gee, thanks. Tell me something I don't know...
But then -- bam! Interspersed with this self-indulgent political nonsense are some of the greatest lyrics my ears have ever had the pleasure of hearing. "Garden of Simple" and "School Night" just blow me away; she must have sold her soul to come up with those metaphors. The "back" button on my car's CD player is now worn out because I repeat these two songs so frequently. And then there are so many other great images scattered throughout the rest of the album ("her Picasso face twisted..." is a favorite).
Ani, how could you sing a line like "you are a party and I am a school night," such a sweet, simple and PERFECT metaphor, and then give me drivel like white people are so cared of black people that white people have to live in subdivisions? AAARGH.
But still: you have to respect this woman. If I had nuts, I'd give my left one to be half the writer she is.
SO: GET THIS CD. Then master your own version, and treasure it forever. The really good stuff here should fit easily on one CD. And, oh, that one CD should have "School Night" and "Garden of Simple" twice each.

I am a huge fan of mid-career Ani. Out of Range through To the Teeth were brillant albums. I think that the success that she enjoyed cultivating the funky side of To the Teeth (probably with the help of others) gave her an inflated impression of the scope of her abilities. She is not a jazz musician and the music that she creates when she is trying to be jazzy/funky just plain sucks.
None of the songs are catchy. The feeble moaning of horns at strange and inopportune times are irritating. The lyrics are occassionally interesting but not what they used to be. The arrangement of the music is amateurish. She could handle a couple of guitars, bass, drums and vocals but she is in way over her head with the jazz ensemble.
In short I think that this album has few, if any, redeeming features. I will proceed with caution with Ani in the future. If she pulls another one of these she will be off of my instant-buy list.

"Coming of age during the plague of Reagan and Bush / Watching capitalism gun down democracy / It had this funny effect on me" exclaims Ani DiFranco on her new record.
"Reckoning/Revelling" is DiFranco's 15th album to date. This time around, DiFranco pleases her fans with an extra dosage by releasing a double album of completely new material.
DiFranco pioneered her way through the music world without the assistance of any big time music label. She did not follow the predictable route to success. Instead, DiFranco started her own indie label "Righteous Babe," and started releasing her own material on it.
Cut: 12 years later, DiFranco is signing up-and-coming bands on her label and selling out stadiums. She's earning a loyal growing fanbase and the critics' utmost respect.
When the bigwigs of the record industry came knocking, she gave them nothing but the middle finger. Not bad for a little folksinger who started out touring in coffee shops in her hometown of Buffalo, New York.
The righteous babe's debut album was a simple collection of queer feminist folk songs. Nothing more, nothing less: just DiFranco, her pick, her acoustic guitar and a mouthful of words to sing.
As she released more albums, she evolved into different genres of music, ranging from big band, to punk, to rap and now to funk. Adding more flavors to her palette did not disturb her politically aware lyrics.
When she was the giddy folkster, she sang about cultural no-no's and their superficiality in "Pick Yer Nose" singing: "How come I can pick my ears but not my nose?" Undoubtedly, DiFranco is not one to compromise her honesty for any reason whatsoever.
Being a DIY girl hasn't been easy, though. Radio stations overlooked her records and MTV denied her any air time.
