  1. As a writer she's never been stronger.
  2. "Goodbye Alice in Wonderland" returns Jewel to her folk/pop roots, serving up her usual host of poetic metaphors for lessons learned and observations on humanity.

    Somewhere beneath the Lilith earnestness glints something sharper. [28 Apr 2006, p.135]
  4. What's changed is that maturity has granted Jewel, now in her early 30s, greater perspective.
  5. A surprisingly substantial return.
  6. Unfortunately, Jewel... chooses to revert to the soppy musical formula of her 1995 debut, Pieces of You.

    Personally, I feel like a score of 0 is too generous for an album this terrible.

Ever since I had the misfortune of listening to the first 3 seconds of "Pieces of You", Jewel Kitlchelenemaner's ugly face has been burned into my memory, her cataract-laden eyes piercing my very soul as she bares her hideously misshapen teeth. I would send her my therapy bills, but this album (like the rest of her discography) was such a gigantic commercial flop I doubt she'd even be able to afford them. Full Review »

    I have listened to Jewel's music since the first and it has always been emotionally moving. I listened to 0304 many many times because I have listened to Jewel's music since the first and it has always been emotionally moving. I listened to 0304 many many times because that was her newest cd, however, now I can't stand listening to it. Goodbye, Alice in Wonderland is deep and mind-bending it wants to make you look at the world very much like many songs on 'This Way'. Full Review »
