    It was the anger and angst of a jilted 20-year-old that gave the original songs their edge--something entirely absent from these blandly matured acoustic versions. [Aug 2005, p.90]
  2. Like Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells II and Meat Loaf's Back Into Hell, it doesn't so much play as fall out of the speakers with a flump: the sound of a towel being thrown in.
  3. The once fist-raising anthems for the Lilith generation have been replaced by the bland.
  4. Stripped of the rough guitars and eclectic production of the original, two things are exposed - those words and that voice. Neither fare well.
  5. Where the was once teen angst, there is nowt but middle-aged resignation. And no, the lyrics to ‘Ironic’ still aren’t bloody ironic.
  6. In the end, this can't even make you feel angry; just desperately sad. [16 Jul 2005, p.50]

    Jagged Litte Pill was a fantastic album and this stripped down acoustic version just shows how excellent the songs on the original are, a great take on a classic album Full Review »

    I think that the record is not the best but it shows the other side of alanis's vocal evolution and her voice is wonderful and amazing but some tracks from jagged little pill acoustic are a little boring. Full Review »
