    Some wonderful songs on this album, but others miss. The rock songs feel awkward and self-conscious, as if she knows that she's mimicking Joplin and Raitt.

    This is Jewel's most progressive album. I think she has really matured as a singer ("Love Me Just Leave Me Alone", "Serve the Ego") and also a song-writer ("Serve the Ego" and "The New Wild West").

    First album, this is me. Second album, this is you. Third album, this is it. The real thing, sung in a range from minstrel to Janis Joplin.

  1. An album of tuneful but calculated pop-rock to be admired rather than loved.

    Knowing what she's capable of, it's impossible not to feel disappointed. [Feb 2002, p.120]
  3. It's her first genuine step forward... probably the best record she has cut to date.
