Product Description

Jewel is about to deliver her most personal and autobiographical record so far - Goodbye Alice In Wonderland. Not content to relegate herself to a traditional music arena, or to be typecast, Jewel has established herself as a culturally significant and relevant brand. Author, songwriter, actress, poet-there are no limits to how Jewel can and will deliver her message. The underlining truth that ties it all together is the integrity of that message.


The word "confessional" is frequently applied to folk of all stripes, including folk-rock and folk-pop, which is where Jewel comes in. Even within the bounds of folk, however, her music is more nakedly confessional than most. (Too nakedly, some have carped.) Along with a coterie of Nashville pros, she began her latest musical journey by laying down another introspective song cycle in the vein of 1995's Pieces of You. Dissatisfied with the results, the Texas-based artist scrapped that effort and re-recorded with Rob Cavallo (Green Day). This lends her sixth album the expected rock edge, but Jewel hasn't changed her spots. If anything, she sounds more like, well, Jewel than she did on dance-oriented departure 0304. She’s still pop star ("Fragile Heart"), sensitive folkie ("Long Slow Slide"), and scrappy country gal ("Stephenville, TX"). Her Joni Mitchell-esque soprano soars as high as ever, with more of a sardonic Dylan chaser than before. What's changed is that maturity has granted Jewel, now in her early 30s, greater perspective--"Growing up is not an absence of dreaming," she states in the title track--and a sense of humor missing from her more earnest early work. On "Satellite," for instance, written when she was 18, but revamped since, she notes that "the Pope," "rock and roll," "Valium," even "Miss Cleo" can't fix her broken heart. In her statement about the album, Jewel claims that, after years of ups and downs, she's "not broken, just more myself." --Kathleen C. Fennessy

I actually got this album today and it's extraordinary. As I expected.

Jewel is fascinating. Most artists today makes one great album, and then fails with the follow-up, because it sounds too much or too little like the debut album. But not Jewel. Each of her 6 albums has its very own sound that makes Jewel interesting, but still, there's something I can't quite put my finger on, that makes the listener recognize Jewel's spirit in each song. Sometimes she also displays a very strange sense of humor that's simply irresistable.

Now for Goodbye Alice in Wonderland. I love it, each and every song. The title track is very special to me, because I can relate to the "journey" she describes. Only One Too sounds like it could have been performed by one of those rude 20th-century-girl-groups. Fragile Heart was actually one of my least favourite tracks on 0304, but this version is much better.

Basically, this album is romantic, but it definitely has up-tempo songs. I'm also amazed by her voice, or should I say voices, because she has a wide range of nuances that she uses very skillfully. She has differed between these nuances earlier, but not within songs the same way that she does in this album. Again and Again is an example in which this is more obvious.

This album is worth every cent many times over, my favourite buy this year, and possibly this century.

Quite a change from 2003’s “0304”, this sixth album from Jewel slows down the pace considerably, mixing pop, folk and a generous helping of country. There’s a lot of music here for your money, running nearly an hour, with three tracks that are more than five minutes long.

First single “Again and Again” is a standard pop ballad, but done Jewel-style with that little yodel. You’ll love the lyrics of this one, and probably play it again and again and again:

“But you, you're always on my mind.

It's like this all the time.

Say it's cause you're mine

All mine...”

Second track “Long Slow Slide” is just as the title implies, a long, slow, touching country-style ballad, and is followed by the title track, which is more folk-oriented, but with a lot of personal reflection. The chorus of “Good Day” is one you can almost hear Melissa Etheridge singing, and “Satellite” sounds more like a Shawn Mullins song.

One of the best tracks is “Only One Too”, with its excellent chorus, and then comes “Words Get in the Way”, another good song with country roots. Maybe it’s a coincidence, but “Drive To You” reminds me a lot of “I Drove All Night”, and this one is another attention-getting track.

“Last Dance Rodeo” is, as you may have guessed, a full fledged country song, and the longest on the album at just over 6 minutes – too slow and too long for my taste. If you’re in the mood for more slow music, stay tuned for “Fragile Heart” which sounds more like vintage Jewel and the folk-country auto-biographical “Stephenville, TX”.

Jewel's career has touted many different faces, themes, and sounds for its singer/songwriter. I've been listening to her since she burst out when I was a wee 4 years old (no joke) and I've never parted ways with her.

There's something about her that gets me everytime. Not to mention, I own all of her albums. Each of them has some quality that seperates it from its predecessors and followers. "Pieces of You", the unbeaten debut album, was filled with introspection, and was recorded very raw. Her Sophomore album "Spirit" was dark, but filled with religious symbolism. There was the Christmas album "Joy" and in 2001, we saw the arrival of "This Way", her most country-style outing to date.

Then "0304" came out. Jewel fans ran away screaming when they saw the gorgeous blonde shaking her rump in the "Intuition" video, but I gave it a shot. Oddly enough, the album is just as great as all of her other works. It's just very up-beat. You can dance to it, but it's still Jewel at its core.

And then she came back with this. I bought "Goodbye Alice in Wonderland" the day it came out and it hasn't left my cd player since. In the liner notes of the album, Jewel writes "This is my most personal work since Pieces of you", and it shows.

The album showcases a woman who has grown significantly and isn't afraid to reveal herself to her listeners.

The lead single and album opener "Again and Again" was co-written by rock super-producer John Shanks (Ashlee Simpson, Michelle Branch) and is very different from the rest of the album in its pop sensibilities. It's a pretty obvious song. "you're always on my mind, it's like this all the time". A good love song, but a bit uninspired. Still beautiful, though.

An authentic Jewel

By Jean-Claude Elias

She's young, blond, good-looking and fashionable, plays the guitar and possesses a superb soprano-like voice. And yet Jewel is unlike the too many female singers who today would fit the above, somewhat commercially pre-formatted profile. I found at least two reasons why the lady is truly different from the crop: her songs are as sincere as they can be and, in a certain way, conjure up the rebellious sound and words of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and the like. Not to mention that she writes her own material - not a minor point.

"Goodbye Alice in Wonderland", Jewel's latest CD, released just a few months ago, continues the trend she started back in 1995 with her stunning "Pieces of You" debut album. The artist is still smartly provocative, never shocking. Most of her lyrics are introspective. "Piece of You" was heavily centered on Jewel's voice and guitar performance. The new disc has a more elaborate, wider instrumental structure, the singer being backed up now by a first-class band. The musicians take the music to the edge of folk-rock with some songs played with distorted guitar riffs and chords that even Jon Bon Jovi wouldn't deny.

Jewel hasn't change her singing style - why should she? She easily moves from low notes to higher ones while slightly changing the colour of the sound on the way up. It's a bit as if one voice was doing the low notes and another voice the higher ones, while maintaining an essential consistency. The 13 tracks cover a good range of moods, from poetic, slow and soft ones like "Long Slow Slide" to heavier pieces like "Only one too".
