I am not ashamed to say that “Jagged Little Pill” was one of my favorite albums of my teen years. It was that time when I was really starting to discover music. I listened to a lot of different music back then. My musical tastes had a broader scope at that time. But more then anything, I still love the music of those years of my life.
This acoustic album is much better then what was planned – a re-mastering of the original 1995 “Jagged Little Pill.” On first thought, this acoustic album seems like MTV Unplugged, rehashed. After listening through the entire album a couple times, this is much more then “Unplugged,” and it is anything but rehashed. You sing along to every song on “Acoustic” and you do a double take. Did she change the lyrics? Are you serious? Morissette actually put effort into this album? Indeed she did. In a time when artists are becoming lax with their music – with “Best Of” albums that are merely re-mastered – Morissette delivers a new “Jagged Little Pill” that seems to have even more kinetic energy then the original some 10 years ago.
