Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Whereas on Little Plastic Castle Ani DiFranco questioned her public image in song, here the fiercely independent singer/songwriter turns away from stardom's beckoning questions to further explore her emotional balance. "Angry Anymore" is a back-porch country song (with banjo and accordion) about coming to terms with a turbulent adolescence. "Everest" floats by as a reverie of spiritual rejuvenation. Most effective is "'Tis of Thee," which deals with racial injustice. The politics are oversimplified, but the melody is one of DiFranco's strongest. She even funks it up on the extended drum-machine-driven jam "Hat Shaped Hat." But while DiFranco enjoys playing around ("Know Now Then" features a "space phone" vocal), she's strongest when most contemplative, as the title track bears out. Backed by organ, piano, and guitar, she espouses this grand truth: "Half of learning how to play / Is learning what not to play." In her quietest moments DiFranco is living proof of simplicity's great power. --Rob O'Connor

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not her best... but it's still Ani February 16, 1999
By Jon
Format:Audio CD
So Everyone is all excited about Ani's new album and some people think she's crap and some people think she's God Herself. I think people are getting confused on what exactly selling out means. Live appearances on TV and radio airplay does not mean she is selling out. It's actually pretty incredible that she can gain the kind of FameInterviewsMagazinecovers that she has purely from touring and word of mouth (something that Tori Amos was barely able to do, even with the help of a major record label's financial support). No, this is not Ani's best album. Not nearly as emotional, beautiful and striking as OUT OF RANGE and NOT A PRETTY GIRL, her two best albums. It does not have the simplistic acoustic sound or folk melodies of LIKE I SAID or IMPERFECTLY. It does not have the novelty of DILATE and LITTLE PLASTIC CASTLE, her two previous studio albums that brought a new distinctive sound to her older formula. But that's just it, she's had her fun with novelties. What's she supposed to do, come out with a jazz CD just to sound new? How about hip hop or country? In a way she has already done that. And now she can move on. The new sounds we heard on the last two studio albums can be heard on UPUPUPUPUPUP, and you know what? I bet Ani doesn't care that she's not sounding new or novel. She's about making a living off of doing what she loves (writing and performing honest music), not trying to please critics. The critics came to HER, hailed her as new an innovative and now they are tired and will move onto their LatestDiscovery, disappointed that she has not come up with a GreatAlbumThatWillGoDownInMusicalHistory.
Anyone who knows Ani, knows that her music is mainly about being live. She is at her finest on stage, complete with flaws and mistakes.

4.0 out of 5 stars QUIT COMPLAINING! October 20, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Let me start out by saying: this is an incredible album. It has more of a jam feel than any of her other albums, and you can just hear her and the band having fun. But now let me say that I am tired of hearing the old die hard fans complain that her music has "changed," that she's not "folk-punk" anymore, and that this album isn't any good.
Ani's music is growing, and we should be happy to be able to witness the evolution. Where her lyrics used to be brilliant because they were raw and in your face, starting with this album, her ideas get more complex, her metaphors take a few lines to unfold, her melodies are more complicated...
This album will always be one of my favorites because it feels free, spontaneous, and innocent. It also marks the real beginning, I think, of her music with the band. Again, a great album from a great artist...even if she isn't still making the same music she did when she was 19!

4.0 out of 5 stars UP6 is worth your time October 29, 2002
By Sarah
Format:Audio CD
While I can agree with some that this is not Ani's best or even most accessible album, I must add that this is a beautiful album. As a huge Ani fan, I rushed out to buy this one and was stragenly sat on my bookshelf for months until I revisited it. I found some wonderful songs, beautiful language, and above all, the trademark earnestness that Ani Difranco is so famous for. While I can't say this is my favorite Ani album, I really respect the chances she takes and the trust she puts in her audience to come along for the ride. Not necessarily a must-have, but a must-listen. If you're looking for the angriness you find on other albums, it's not present here as it is on NAPG. If you're looking for a bouncy, catchy CD like Little Plastic Castle, it's not here. But if you want to listen to Ani's ever-maturing sound, this is a great album to start with ...most longtime Ani fans would agree. Her newer stuff is such a departure from her early work, it's finally refreshing to see an artist take strides to refine and experiment with her own sound, rather than rely on what she already knows works so well. That is truly what makes Ms D stand out: her willingness to forget the format and just play, for her own enjoyment as well as her audience's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another favorite Ani Difranco album January 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD
It has been awhile since I popped in "Up Up Up Up Up Up". My taste in music has changed drastically over the years. I am not the big Ani Difranco fan that I used to be. Eight years ago, I used to buy her cds on the day that they were released. My how times have changed. Still I respect Ani immensely for her DIY ethics and eschewing corporate America when it comes to her music. Next to "Little Plastic Castles" and "Dilate", "Up Up Up Up Up Up" is one of my favorite Ani Difranco cds. Songs like "Angry Any More" and "'Tis of Thee" really speaks to me lyrically. Unlike her earlier work, "Up Up Up Up Up Up" incorporates other different instruments other than Ani's traditional fierce guitar playing. The banjo, the organ, piano, and bass all adds a different layer of sound to Ani's music and gives her music new life. I personally love "Up Up Up Up Up Up". It is different from Ani's earlier music but I think it is still as good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ani breaks her own mold, again! December 22, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I have been an Ani fan since "Ani DiFranco" (1990). When I heard "both hands" it touched me in a way no other artist has since Tori Amos. I have followed her progression through the years, and the problem many Ani fans have with "Up Up Up Up Up Up" struck me at first as well. Ani has been progressively moving out of folk into funk-rock right up to Little Plastic Castles"(LPC) So, not surprisingly, you might expect this to take it a step further, instead she seems to take a breather and try to be heard the best by wispering. Don't buy this CD expecting LPC: part 2, you will be dissapointed. Buy this CD expecting what Ani is best at: ruthless, naked, honesty. You might even want to go back to her roots and listen to her earlier music before listening to this, it's a more subtle transistion.
