Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

As she has become both indie icon and industry force, Ani DiFranco has grown more unpredictable, savvy, and restless with every release. On this sumptuously packaged double set, DiFranco often pours her brutally personal and political images into summery, horn-based jazz arrangements--Maceo Parker even takes one gorgeously funky sax solo--and yet somehow still keeps the focus on her own minimalist guitar and vulnerable, emotionally strung-out voice. Her jittery, jazzy phrasing deconstructs the pleasure and poison of her lyrics, so that even vicious lines like "our culture is just a roughneck / teenage jerk / with a bottle of pills / and a bottle of booze" resonate beyond easy condemnation. This is a dark, brooding, but ultimately cathartic work of confessional art. On nearly every track, DiFranco pursues the kind of defenseless honesty and personal vision that few other performers today would dare. --Roy Kasten

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece! April 25, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I knew it was a good sign when I had problems getting into this CD on first listen. All of my most favorite music ("desert island" CDs) were difficult at first.
The first thing I thought upon listening to the first track off of "Revelling" was "ooh, her old fans are going to HATE this!" Very few tracks on the whole double album sound anything like "Out of Range" or "Imperfectly" or any of her more purely folk albums. And although I love all her music, this new direction is, IMHO, a good thing. Revelling has some wonderful music moments with insightful and flowing lyrics, but Reckoning is the deeper and more ultimately satisfying of the two discs.
Like Ani, I have been married for about 2 years and can appreciate a lot of the angst, confusion, joy, and bewilderment at being joined with another human being in such a "legal" way. Probably my favorite song is "School Night" (although the critic from Spin cited this as one of the songs she should have left off). For me the song explores the idea that "your one true love" is a farce. There is not just one person in the world that you can love enough to marry, but in the song, she grapples with the fact that she intends to honor her committment even though she also loves this other person.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful October 11, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album is one of several examples I own that show just what happens when the wrong artist makes a great album at the wrong time and in the wrong way.
Allow me a moment to explain myself. This album is, in my humble opinion, one of the 20 greatest albums I have ever heard. I've not heard 5% of the music out there, I'm sure, but I've heard enough that to be in my top 20 is no small feat. But it is an extreme growth and change for Ani, and it shows the downside to having the kind of fevered, intense fanbase that she does. They fell in love with a young girl singing songs that spoke to them, or that stated their own political views with passion, and many are having a hard time accepting that there might be more to Difranco than that. A good number have already jumped ship. It's as silly an argument now as it was when Dylan went electric, but a lot of her fans are just mad that she's not making Dilate 2, or that she's trying new things. Go figure.
Reviewers haven't been much kinder, because many of them too fell in love with Difranco in the mid-90's, and they haven't like anything since. So, you see, Ani's majestic, sweeping, devestating Revelling/Reckoning, her best work to date, is coming at a terrible time for her. If it came 10 years from now, it would be hailed, and if it had come out in 1994 it would have blown people away. If some unknown artist had made it, critics would line up to rave. But now it's just the prettiest pink stone you've ever seen, sinking in a sea that is grey.
I could spend all day rambling about the implications, hints, and outright statements in the lyrics. But that would be stupid of me. I could go on and on about the incredible arrangements, or how the horns add to her sound, or the differences between the two discs, or the album art. Instead, just let me say this:
Ani Difranco made one of the most beautiful, powerful albums of all time, and it's destroying her career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Double Fun January 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD
"Coming of age during the plague of Reagan and Bush / Watching capitalism gun down democracy / It had this funny effect on me" exclaims Ani DiFranco on her new record.
"Reckoning/Revelling" is DiFranco's 15th album to date. This time around, DiFranco pleases her fans with an extra dosage by releasing a double album of completely new material.
DiFranco pioneered her way through the music world without the assistance of any big time music label. She did not follow the predictable route to success. Instead, DiFranco started her own indie label "Righteous Babe," and started releasing her own material on it.
Cut: 12 years later, DiFranco is signing up-and-coming bands on her label and selling out stadiums. She's earning a loyal growing fanbase and the critics' utmost respect.
When the bigwigs of the record industry came knocking, she gave them nothing but the middle finger. Not bad for a little folksinger who started out touring in coffee shops in her hometown of Buffalo, New York.
The righteous babe's debut album was a simple collection of queer feminist folk songs. Nothing more, nothing less: just DiFranco, her pick, her acoustic guitar and a mouthful of words to sing.
As she released more albums, she evolved into different genres of music, ranging from big band, to punk, to rap and now to funk. Adding more flavors to her palette did not disturb her politically aware lyrics.
When she was the giddy folkster, she sang about cultural no-no's and their superficiality in "Pick Yer Nose" singing: "How come I can pick my ears but not my nose?" Undoubtedly, DiFranco is not one to compromise her honesty for any reason whatsoever.
Being a DIY girl hasn't been easy, though. Radio stations overlooked her records and MTV denied her any air time.
