I'm not going to go into a track by track rundown, as others have already done it.
All I can say is that this is a brilliant piece of work, although flawed in places, as I don't particularly like the "electronic beats" on most of the tracks, as it isn't anything that interests me, particularly.
I must say it does seem to work mostly, but my favourites are the beautiful ballad "Not as We" (the piano IS supposed to be simple, by the way, anything else would spoil the song!), and "Incomplete" (which seems to be another track some people don't get, which I can't understand). The simplicity of the verses musically, with the joyous melodic chorus, really seems to stand out, for me!
I think the bonus CD is also superb, and it's well worth spending the extra, as 4 out of the 5 tracks on it, deserve to be on the CD "proper". "Orchid" is a particularly beautiful song. I think I prefer the "sweeter" voiced Alanis to the more "abrasive" sounding one, but either way she is an artist who knows the value of "light and shade" in music. I do love this album and can't stop listening to it!
I've been a fan for over a decade, and have most of the CD's, and I think her "unique" way of writing (and singing) lyrics make her an exciting and influential artist, and this album hasn't made me change my mind.
I do however think she is an artist that some people will either "love" or "hate", with not much in between!
