This review is from: To The Teeth (Audio CD)
When i first happened upon this record, i was killing time at tower records at the listening post and slapped this on. The next thing i remember is realizing i had been standing still staring out the window for 3 quarters of an hour. This album is nothing short of mesmerizing. Her writing and delivery, free from those generic metaphors and 'brave' statements, drifts from the devastating Hello Birmingham to the dreamy nostalgia of I Know This Bar while always remaining honest and straightforward, inspiring a funny kind of trust and belief in her what she's singing about. For me anyway, Ani Difranco marked a new means to music listening, and really transcended all that image stuff that i admit i was really into.
I think that anyone that hears this can realize that she is truly in a class of her own, whether to their taste or not and her music is definetly something to be experienced. Be careful of building up a dependancy though!
