Telling it frankly !,
By A Customer
This review is from: Out Of Range (Audio CD)
Joni Mitchell meets Tori Amos on this angst ridden guitar and piano based album. Ani Di Franco doesn't write songs for the 'beautiful people'. She writes for all us lesser mortals those who love and lose, whose hearts don't break cleanly. Every song becomes a story and the fragility of her voice sits in stark contrast to the strength behind her musical talent. Strong tracks include track four, 'Hey You', and tracks number six 'Overlap' and eight 'Falling'. Her lyrics are both articulate yet brutally honest and so convincingly autobiographical that by the close of the album you feel as if you have gained a new best friend. Not immediatly accessible, it takes more than one listen to appreciate the depth of this musical talent. Heartily recommended !
