    While it is nice to hear "Jagged Little Pill" acousticly, I kinda figured out that Alanis was over it about half a decade ago.

    I was a HUGE Alanis fan of "Jagged Little Pill". I love Alanis' easy to relate to music and her bitter, angry edge. I wasn't overly impressed with the acoustic version at first. Right when she would hit an edgy part, she would almost immediatly soften it. Her voice has matured, as she has, and you can appreciate her wanting to show that.....But why touch a classic???

  1. For a woman who once used lyrics to shock listeners, there's nothing terribly shocking about this new CD.

    Despite scattered flashes of uncharacteristic lightness, she rarely tempers the fury that drove the originals with the more accepting perspective that's guided her subsequent efforts. [Jul 2005, p.119]

    Though pretty, the stripped-down treatment... is mostly free of innovation, softening rather than sharpening the originals' enjoyably jagged edges. [17 June 2005, p.79]
