Ani DiFranco - Not a Pretty Girl

Not A Pretty Girl is the sixth studio album released by singer-songwriter Ani DiFranco on her own record label, Righteous Babe Records.

Cited by many fans as her finest work, the 1995 album extended the punk-edged folk singer's early formula of acoustic guitar and drums to a passionate crescendo.

On subsequent records, DiFranco would add electric guitar, horns, band members and guest musicians, but on Not A Pretty Girl she belts out her guitar licks and her political-yet-personal lyrics accompanied most often by Andy Stochansky's fitful and emotional percussion alone.

Not A Pretty Girl stands as a watershed album for DiFranco.

It also intensified the word-of-mouth buzz and the occasional nod from alternative media, which are the predominant modes of publicity for DiFranco, who shuns the corporate music industry and as a result gets little airplay on commercial radio.As a small rebellion in CD design, the case of Not A Pretty Girl is designed to be looked at "the wrong way 'round", with the spine on the right hand side rather than the left.

According to AllMusic, "Light of Some Kind" is a "deeply felt portrait...in which the singer seems to be confessing to a man that she has been unfaithful to him with a woman" Released on Living in Clip, the track "Shy" earned DiFranco a 1997 Grammy Award nomination for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.
