Walking through the psychedelic title track, the RUBBER SOUL-ish pop, the garage rock, and the lovely Eire-meets-Tennessee 'The Galway Girl', BLUES is his musical road map..." - Rating: A-Q (7/00, p.114) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...There is no doubt that his songwriting chops just keep getting better...proving his mastery of every country-rock style..."Magnet (1-2/01, p.44) - Included in Magnet's "20 Best Albums of 2000" - "...The crowning achievement of Nashville's king of the road..."Down Beat (3/01, p.73) - 4.5 out of 5 - "Th ebest of Earle's career is a brilliant melange of rootsy country, blazing rock, Irish folk, uptempo bluegrass and Beatlesque pop..."No Depression (5-6/00, pp.110-1) - "...There is much to suggest that a little less hair and a little more gut are matters of nuance,, and nuance is what it's eventually all about....it is socked with good things...making loyalists glad they've been on board for the whole dang oeuvre..."Mojo (Publisher) (7/00, p.106) - "...He bares his spiritual chest...with a Lennonesque honesty and a vocal delivery that increasingly resembles Tom Petty's sub-Dylan sneer..."2.873933

Rolling Stone (6/13/96, p.85) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...while most devoutly `political' artists stress polemics, DiFranco stresses music....she's at her best when she picks somber guitar phrases and lets her voice trail off into a whisper. Her self-deprecating humor prevents her personal songs from becoming sappy or self-righteous..."Spin (7/96, pp.93-94) - 7 (out of 10) - "...a song cycle excavating an unrequited obsession that knocked the wind out of her. DILATE's core conflict is DiFranco's pain as the other woman....DiFranco retains her knack for the well-cut phrase, and that's what razors some of these behemoths down to size..."Entertainment Weekly (5/24/96, p.98) - "...DiFranco's songs and voice grab you between the ears and won't let go." - Rating: B+Alternative Press (10/96, p.82) - 4 (out of 5) - "...she goes electric, adding a Hammond organ, sequenced drums and synths to her songs that blend punk's anger with a folksy belief in the power of protest..."Option (9-10/96, p.102) - "...DILATE smoothes out DiFranco's rough edges a little....DiFranco handles out-right love songs like `Superhero' with surprising ease, and even strays from her usual six-string folk, experimenting with things like echo tracks and synthesizers..."Village Voice (2/25/97) - Ranked #22 in the Village Voice's 1996 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.NME (Magazine) (8/3/96, p.45) - 6 (out of 10) - "...Ani Di Franco is her very own one-woman music industry.

Let it pour..."NME (Magazine) (7/24/93, p.35) - 7 - Very Good - "...as assuredly chilling as they've ever been...."2.119566
