  • In the four years following the release of 1998's SUPPOSED FORMER INFATUATION JUNKIE, Alanis Morissette went far afield from music, dabbling in film (DOGMA), TV (SEX & THE CITY) and stage (THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES). Her return to the studio found the older and wiser former child star hooking up with her old band along with a number of superstar guests. Sharing the same confessional approach towards songwriting as musical brethren Natalie Imbruglia and Fiona Apple, Morissette delves into personal experiences with ex-lovers ("Narcissus" featuring Flea), new ones (the soaring "Surrendering"), and feelings of insecurity ("So Unsexy" featuring Me'shell N'Degeocello).
  • Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Dean DeLeo and former Jane's Addiction bassist Eric Avery lend their talents to the yearning of "Precious Illusions." Best of all is the uplifting closer "Utopia," an anthem of hope that combines the spiritually focused Canadian's ethereal vocal phrasing with lush string arrangements and trilling acoustic guitar. Despite being weighted in a good deal of introspection, Morissette's third outing finds her deftly avoiding any hint of pretentiousness or self-absorption.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (3/14/02, pp.69-70) - 3 out of 5 stars - "...brawny and meticulous....She concocts folk rock dirven by hip-hop beats, ballads that build...and hard rock aswirl with psychedelia....She makes [her voice] quiver delicately with nervousness..."

Spin (4/02, p.114) - 7 out of 10 - "...The only thing pop about this record is a return to melodic hooks. It's a breakup record, full of Freud and props for inner peace. She's mellowed, but her thesaurus is still putting out..."

Q (2/02, p.107) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Some of the most inviting music of her career....a lyrical Trojan Horse to be wheeled into unsuspecting homes for months to come. Devious stuff."

Mojo (Publisher) (April 2002, p.100) - "...[Morissette's] own production makes much of this...zing along with dirty guitars...or big drum beats...and improbably insinuating choruses..."
