Reviews

No major label deal for DiFranco, she's stayed with her own label throughout her career, she's controlled her own destiny. She's also released a ton of records, so it's difficult to buy them all, but goddammit, someday I'll own every single one - I really like Ani Difranco!

Albums like Puddle Dive and Out of Range are welcome additions to the DiFranco canon without actually being highlights, although her fans tend to have their own favourites anyway. To some Out of Range will mean the world to them - DiFranco has that effect on her fans - although to non-fans she's just stuck in with a bunch of other female singer-songwriters with which she has little in common.

Out of Range shows subtle signs of development over the previous album, but it's no huge jump. The songs are arranged a little more thoughtfully, but still retain DiFranco's natural sound and feel. The title track has genuinely great lyrics, and "Letter to a John" is good enough to see me paying attention to every single word, and also enjoying the sound, the feel, and especially the melodies present in the vocals.
