Reviews:

''So Much Shouting, So Much Laughter'' is the second live album by singer-songwriter Ani DiFranco, released in 2002 (see 2002 in music).

The opening track of the second disc, "Comes a Time", is an excerpt from the famous speech by Mario Savio, given before Free Speech Movement demonstrators entered Sproul Hall to begin their sit-in on December 3, 1964. His climactic words about "the operation of the machine" have been quoted widely ever since, out of context, as the existential emblem of the FSM. - Wikipedia

Having conquered a sizable portion of the world by both being herself and beingher own boss, Ani DiFranco has nothing left to prove. So as too often happensin cases like this, she's spent the last couple years proving nothing.And while her metier has always been the live performance, following 1997'sdefinitive concert disc, Living in Clip, with another live double doesn'treally prove anything either, aside from the fact that Ani really, really likeshaving a horn section. The three trumpets and sax/flute/clarinet man Hans Teuberdon't intrude-in fact, they're weaved into the ever-more-texturedsound with admirable precision. But while they might point to the artist'sever-broadening palette, the artist herself sounds like she's floundering.Because the other thing that So Much Shouting, So Much Laughter provesis far more alarming: Ani DiFranco hasn't written a song you can rememberafter five minutes in half a decade.
