Living in Clip
The mannered vocal style that has always been the most off-putting element of Ani DiFranco's music is still present on this two-disc live set, but for some reason it doesn't matter anymore. Maybe it's the way you can hear DiFranco using her breaths to accent a rhythm section that's downright merciless with its circling, pulsing, scary grooves. Or maybe it's the way, with an audience screaming, she pours heart and soul into "Unforgettable Face" and the story song "Gravel." Whatever, Living in Clip is the album where DiFranco begins to deserve her hype. And "Amazing Grace," backed by the Buffalo Philharmonic, is where she surpasses it. --David Cantwell
Top Customer Reviews
*Just a note: I have purchased studio recorded material from Ani DiFranco and haven't found any of it to be half as satisfying as Living in Clip.
I can't even begin to tell you what an amazing artist/folk singer/poet/feminist/anarchist/socialist/intelligent young woman Ani is. At a point in my life when it is difficult to find people of likemind I must say that Ani is my inspiration. I play this CD over and over again in the morning and it "helps me through my day" which is exactly what Ani's music is meant to do. Now I could sit here and wax poetic about Ani's politics, ideals, and her charming personality, but I do believe her music and this particular CD are the topic at hand.
This CD is absolutely perfect for anybody beginning an Ani collection and a must for all Aniphiles. It has music from all different time periods and stages of Ani's career giving you a broad look at the punk folksinger's various talents and abilities. Ani is especially real on this CD; It's pure soul, the persistence of the human spirit. Her voice, her trusty guitar, the band, and of course, her screaming fans. Which is exactly what an Ani concert consists of.
I can't tell you anymore about this CD than that I IMPLORE you to buy it if you haven't. And if you don't you shall surely be missing out on one of the most engaging artists to come around in years.

Ani seems to touch every feeling a person can have on this CD. She goes from subtle and soft, to yelling, screaming and laughter. This is the best CD I have ever bought. Read morePublished on June 26 2004
One album, two discs, hours of immensely quotable Ani. What's not to like?
For anyone new to the Difranco experience, I'd recommend you try either her self-titled debut first... Read more

Although I've only heard 4 songs from this cd, I would probably buy it because Ani has such a beautiful voice and her lyrics are great. Very real. Read morePublished on Dec 14 2002 by Lisa

This album is *sort of* like going to one of her shows, except here there's less verbal interaction with the audience (for obvious reasons). Read morePublished on May 14 2002 by Jamie Savino
Ani may cross many genres, but at heart she is still a folk artist. As Ani said in the book to Living in Clip, "I've never been a studio musician. Read morePublished on Jan. 27 2002 by asteadyrain
