Top critical review
on 1 July 2008
Alanis is still a classic singer/songwriter, with her twisted lyrics that are very talented placed in songs - but this cd left me a little confused of which way this cd was heading. It borders on the angriness of past releases but somehow holds back on the true Morissette power. OK Underneath, which is being criminally ignored here in the UK, should be a massive hit and is the best thing here, and is classic Alanis but nothing comes close to it on this cd, Other tracks worth a listen here are Straitjacket, Versions Of Violence and Not As We, but this cd begins to sound same over all the way through. I shall of course remain a big Alanis fan, but this cd will be placed way behind Jagged Little Pill, Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie, Under Rug Swept and So Called Chaos - but rather building on a huge comeback, i feel that this cd will be a huge disappointment outside her huge fanbase, which is a shame, but as afore said Underneath is a classic.
