Product Description

Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill Acoustic is an "au natural" revisiting of the cultural zeitgeist that was her 15-million selling 1995 debut. The songs on this diamond anniversary acoustic album will appear in the same order as they did on the original album, including the hidden track, 'Your House'. The CD package also includes special footage from the original album's era, as well as other bonus features. Maverick. 2005.

To mark the 10-year anniversary of the 30 million-selling Jagged Little Pill, Alanis Morissette decided to release an acoustic version of the very same 13 songs. A little more sung than screamed, Jagged Little Pill Acoustic is certainly less edgy than the original, but then again, so is Alanis herself. Now a 30-something Grammy-winner, she has far less to be angst-y about. The disc opens with one of its highlights, a slightly East Indian-tinged "All I Really Want" which includes a more controlled vocal than the original, backed by Arabic-influenced instrumentation. The new take is most charming, as is "Right Through You" which proves to be another case of improving on the original. Morissette's vocals soar through the chorus, now swooping over a host of (once again) Eastern-influenced strings. The vitriolic "You Oughtta Know"--perhaps the most rockin' track on the original CD--is now more contemplative in it's pace and sensibility, as is "You Learn"'s new mellower melody.

So there are moments of beauty, but also some of the same old, same old. Why, then, does one need this disc? For die-hard fans, the curio factor is reason enough. Marginal Alanis fans, those who found the original too screechy, will get the chance to hear the songs toned-down. Those looking for something different, however, should be aware that this is the entire Jagged disc, start to finish. For a woman who once used lyrics to shock listeners, there's nothing terribly shocking about this new CD. Isn't it ironic? --Denise Sheppard

"Re-recording these songs ten years later has been such a great opportunity to honor them in a way I could not do 10 years ago," observes singer/songwriter Alanis Morissette in the liner notes to "Jagged Little Pill Acoustic," an album of sparse, low-key interpretations of the 13 songs that comprised "Jagged Little Pill," her 1995 debut album that thrust the then 21 year-old Canadian siren into the vanguard of the alternative music scene and mid-90's pop culture. The record went on to sell 30,000,000 copies worldwide; the highest-selling album ever by a female artist.

It is an interesting concept; a tribute album to one's one album, but the end result is better than one might think. "Acoustic" serves as a sharp reminder of what everyone loved about Morissette a decade ago when she first surfaced on worldwide radar, and with Glen Ballard again filling the role as the album's producer, the results sound true to the original.

Indeed, her "angry" vocal performances in songs such as "Right Through You" or "You Oughta Know," which gained her instant notoriety as her debut single, are considerably more restrained now. And while some may at first dismiss the idea of hearing these songs sung without their original ferocity, they are still worth the time.

"You Oughta Know" is the clearest indication that Morissette was able to change the direction of some of the material, as if to challenge the interpretation listeners immediately had to the song. To be sure, the original was carried along by raw anger, and appropriately so. Nevertheless, she has always maintained that she herself finds the song as being more sad than angry, and this time her vocals sound distinctly more vulnerable.

When I first heard that Alanis Morissette planned on releasing an acoustic version of her most popular album "Jagged Little Pill," I was a bit nervous. I personally didn't see the point, and thought that a re-issue of the original album would have been better. However, would there have been any point in releasing it again? Doesn't everyone in the English-speaking world already own this album? My thoughts exactly. So this album came out yesterday in England and I bought my copy in a record store, took it home, and was pretty much blown away. I now realise how important it was for Alanis to re-record these songs exactly 10 years after she originally did.

Back in 1995, Miss Morissette was a dangerous and angst-ridden young vixen. Her guttural moans and screeching became her trademark on an album so emotional, powerful and full of pain. Ten years later, her voice has softened in reflection to her increasing happiness. The angst has been replaced with love. Love for life, love for her husband, and love for her dear friends. It's beautiful to see this transformation, because it's so natural and pure. I bought Jagged Little Pill in October 2002, not expecting much, and coming away realising that it is my favourite album of all time and that it always, always will be. The music isn't the most complex I've ever heard, the lyrics aren't the best, but good God, the sound of the album touches me in more ways than I ever thought possible.

In the three years that I've owned the original album, it has to be the most played record in my collection. I never tire of it, and that is the sound of a classic album in my eyes. People think it's overrated, but they obviously aren't touched like many by the music Alanis is singing. Is this album a masterpiece? In my eyes it definitely is.

I am so utterly impressed with this CD!! Alanis has such an exceptional voice and it really shines in this acoustic version that truly pays tribute to the original.

If you are one that knows every note from the original release and are offended by slight alterations, maybe this CD isn't for you. This interpretation adds wonderful new fluctuations that showcases her vocal range. The acoustic instrument arrangements are exceptional and add a lot of emphasis in just the right locations to enhance the flavor of every song.

I wrote up a song-by-song analysis of this album as I listened to it for a friend of mine, and rather than summarize my opinion of this album, I'm just going to paste in what I wrote to my friend. For those of you who have no desire to read a song-by-song analysis, suffice it to say that this album is AMAZING both in addition to the original OR as a stand-alone CD.

I'm going to give you a song-by-song analysis...

1. All I Really Want -- Great version. You can really hear the growth in her vocal abilities in this song, and it's a great opener still!

2. You Oughta Know -- I like this version, but it can't hold a candle to the MTV Unplugged version, which continues to give me goosebumps.

3. Perfect -- Just beautiful. wow....

4. Hand In My Pocket -- HOLY COW.... I loved this song before, of course, but this version is The new chord progressions are awesome! This is a perfect example of how you can take a song that was already great and make it better even by changing the core of its sound (the chords used).

5. Right Through You -- This song's okay, but it seems to lose a little oomph in this version. You can hear her emotion, but it's diminished by the quietness of the accompaniment.

6. Forgiven -- "My brothers, they never went blind for what they did." Still my favorite line in this song. This version is just as powerful as the original. The one difference, however, is that in the original, you can hear/feel her anger and frustration, but this time around, the anger and rage have dissolved into a very noticeable pain and heartache that was probably there to begin with, but masked by the gritty sound. MMm...powerful. Is that some Spanish guitar I hear in there? Interesting! Nice touch.
