One of my favourite Ani albums,
This review is from: Up Up Up Up Up Up (Audio CD)
Before reading this review it should be noted that I find it very difficult not to love anything that Ani does. This being said, Up up up up up up is, in my opinion, among her very best albums. The intitial track 'Tis of Thee' is lyically stunning, and the words to her songs are of the same standard throughout.
Musically the album has a funky, jamming sort of feel to it that I really enjoyed. Much of the time Ani and her band are improvising, and the results are very groovy (though at times a little surreal). The songs are well arranged and beautifully played; my particular favourites being 'Angry Anymore', 'Jukebox' and 'Tis of Thee'. If you like Ani's later work such as 'Revelling Reckoning', 'So Much Shouting So Much Laughter' and 'Evolve' then you must get this record. If you prefer her earlier work you will enjoy the rawness and energy that the album has, so buy it anyway!
