This album is surely an essential for any music lover. Ani is so original, and as someone else already said, its the best album to get if you are unfamiliar with her music. She can seem bizarre, and i think this album is maybe the least weird, and it is one of the most consistently brilliant. Each song has incisive, moving lyrics, and she sings and plays with such emotion. She is one of the few truly talented songwriters of our time.
It is hard to pick out any tracks, but here goes... the first (title-) track opens the album so perfectly, it's so clever and just absolutely fun to listen to, Gravel and As Is have to be two of my favourite songs EVER, Pixie has cynicism, wit and attitude, and Pulse is just a beautiful ending to a fantastic album!
Ani is so amazing, she's released so much music over the years. Check out her music label 'Righteous Babe Records' it has a great website.
So if you get this album (which you definitely should) and enjoy it (which i think you will)- find some more of her albums and build up your collection!
