+ Overview: In the 10 years since the original 'Jagged Little Pill' grabbed theworld by the throat and shouted angrily in it's face, Alanis' style has obviously matured and in this acoustic version of the 90s classic, this maturity certainly shows. Jagged Little Pill Acoustic is a beautiful, ... Read review

Smooth Little Album

AdvantagesA beautiful re-imagining of her 1995 hit album

DisadvantagesNo new material

"...the first single from the Jagged Little Pill. In this version of the song, it does feel as if Alanis has began to grow past the pain of the messy breakup which she describes in the lyrics, as the relaxed, acoustic guitar and the far less staccato singing (rather than shouting) allow you to listen calmly to the story being detailed. Where the original version grabbed you by the neck and shouted in your face, this acoustic version calmly explains how ..." Read review

Jagged Little Pill Acoustic-Alanis Morissette

AdvantagesChilled out,familiar,still got that magic,more mature vocals make songs emotionally stronger.

DisadvantagesNot really any new material but it does give you something new in sound and feel.

"Jagged Little Pill Acoustic- released in 2005 suits the new Alanis really well. With her general albums showing a mellower (hippier) side, the acoustic take on the past albums is really a nice idea. The good thing about this album is that the songs still have the familiarity that they did before but with a slightly new sound. Now if you are expecting it to be an album of just Alanis and an acoustic six string, then you will be proved wrong! From ..." Read review

Acoustic Little Pill

AdvantagesA gorgeous, relaxing version of her original, 1995 album

DisadvantagesNo new tracks

"This album marks the 10 year anniversary of the release of Alanis' original 'Jagged Little Pill'. I was such a fan of Alanis' 1995 album, 'Jagged Little Pill' that when I saw the acoustic version advertised in the summer of this year (2005) I purchased a copy almost immediately. Apart from the fact that the songs are now heard as acoustic versions, there are some very subtle changes to the keys in which some of the songs are performed. "One ..." Read review

A present well recieved...

AdvantagesA mellow, tuneful album - fabulous background dinner music!

DisadvantagesProbably not a good choice if buying for someone who doesnt appreciate sole vocals!

"...a fan of alanis's work, Jagged Little Pill (original) was my first taste at the age of 14 of her brilliant works and am now the proud owner of four of her albums. As my original Jagged Little Pill is somewhat lovingly worn I was pleased as punch - although a little dubious - when given the acoustic version. I did not need to be... As an album is should not be confused as a money spinning rerelease of the original but should be celebrated for ..." Read review

Jagged Little Pill Acoustic - Review.

AdvantagesGreat voice; new versions of old songs

DisadvantagesNo new material -but i guess that is the point of the album.

"I bought this CD with a little hesitation as the original 'Jagged Little Pill' album back in 1995 was a classic. After being unimpressed with her last album 'Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie' I wondered what the motives behind re-releasing this album in an accoustic format were. A quick and easy payday? Cashing in on the reputation and success of what has to be said was a great album? I'm glad to say that my fears were unfounded and that the ..." Read review

Liner Note Author: Alanis Morissette.
Recording information: Westlake Audio, Hollywood, CA; Aerowave Studios, Los Angeles, CA.
Ten years after the 1995 release of her bold Maverick debut, JAGGED LITTLE PILL, Alanis Morissette commemorated her breakthrough album by re-recording it in an acoustic-based studio setting. Those predicting safe reinterpretations of Morissette's headstrong, diary-like songs are proven wrong; here Glen Ballard's slick rock production is replaced by his own earthy, organic new arrangements, and Morissette is clearly invigorated by the chance to rework some of her most beloved tunes.
The decade since JAGGED LITTLE PILL made Morissette a more savvy and nuanced artist. Some tracks, including the vibrant, Middle Eastern-inflected "All I Really Want" and the yearning "Wake Up," feature a string quartet, while others are transformed into spare, folk-like numbers. Morissette's revamping of her scathing rock hit "You Oughta Know" glides along on acoustic-guitar strumming and minimal drum beats, and "Head Over Feet" is transformed into a gentle, piano-led tune. Although JAGGED LITTLE PILL ACOUSTIC still showcases her youthful verve, it's a record that reveals a subtler, more mature side of Morissette, and reinforces her remarkable staying power.
