  1. For a woman who once used lyrics to shock listeners, there's nothing terribly shocking about this new CD.
  2. A nice enough idea, but being much quieter and more pastoral, it is also somewhat anti-climactic. [Aug 2005, p.128]
  3. It's a pleasant enough listen, but it's hard to see the point of the album.
  4. Morissette turns in a powerful and nuanced vocal performance over these lighter but layered arrangements. [16 Jun 2005, p.98]
  5. For the most part, what was once electrifying is now stripped of almost all of its energy and novelty.

    A second rate version of the original. [Sep 2005, p.102]
