iTunes Review

Ani's an independent-minded folk singer who's always stood for the individual, so it's not surprising to learn that her first studio album in more than three years features tales of people struggling through a tough economy. She's joined by Pete Seeger for a reworking of his legendary protest anthem (the album's title track), where she invokes many of the troubles facing America in 2012. DiFranco's living in New Orleans these days, and "Life Boat" sends her eyes and ears there to speak as a homeless woman for whom "this park bench is a lifeboat." "Amendment" demands laws that protect women's rights. It's not all protest and darkness, though; her touring band keeps the grooves up, while guests like Ivan and Cyril Neville and avant-saxophonist Skerik further color the sounds and her dreams. She's playful with the frank truths of "Promiscuity." "Hearse," a gentle folk tune, clings to love in the face of death. With a New Orleans funky blues for "If Yr Not," she lets us know that "if you're not getting happier as you get older, then you're f***in' up." Forever the free spirit, DiFranco keeps it honest and real.

A new twist on an old idea

This album is all the things we've come to know (and love) of Ms. Ani D. She, as usual, advocates for the power of women, pushes political buttons, creates striking imagery and plays some great guitar.

But what stands out for me on this album is how Ani presents love.
Of course she's shared parts of her relationships with us on many albums before, but I feel this one with particular courageous vulnerability.

'Hearse' is the vibrant gem on this album for me.

Also loved 'Albacore', 'Promiscuity', 'Splinter', and 'Zoo'.

Missed you!

Amazing songs, each one with a vibe of it's own! Love it! I have been waiting to hear some of these songs again. I saw her perform "Splinter" and "J" at her concert last years. Her lyrics and sounds are ...
Oh So Ani!

A folkie in punk's clothing, Ani DiFranco battled successfully against the Goliath of corporate rock to emerge as one of the most influential and inspirational cult heroines of the 1990s. A resolute follower of the D.I.Y. ethos, DiFranco released her records through her own indie label, Righteous Babe, slowly but steadily building a devout grassroots following on the strength of a relentless tour schedule. An ardent feminist and an open bisexual, her songs tackled issues like rape, abortion, and...
