A phenomenal '90s success story, Alanis Morissette caps off the decade with a recognized symbol that an artist has achieved enormous popularity - an MTV "Unplugged" special and album. Her third Maverick album, Alanis "Unplugged" follows the landmark Jagged Little Pill and 1998's Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie. Alanis "Unplugged" finds the edge singer-songwriter baring the acoustic souls of hits such as "You Oughta Know", "Ironic", "Hand In My Pocket" and "Uninvited" in an intimate and powerful performance.

Muze PNote Though Morissette is known for songs driven by big, hard-hitting production, her larger-than-life sound translates surprisingly well to a stripped-down, acoustic-based approach. Backed by acoustic guitar, piano, and strings (and a tasteful rhythm section), Alanis scales down the grand scale of her arrangements for a more intimate, directly communicative effect. Listening to the almost gentle version of the formerly piledriving "You Oughta Know" will provide something of a revelation for Morissette's fans. The scathing lyrics achieve an even more cathartic effect with the contrasting feel of the music, and the singer/songwriter is revealed as a folk-rocker at heart.
Muze PNote Her previously noted preference for the confessional mode is further underlined here by an earnest version of the Police's soul-searching plaint "King of Pain." Thankfully, Morissette has enough common sense to avoid changing it to "Queen of Pain." The unfettered swoops and glides of her vocal style have more room to flow here as well, and Morissette sounds a bird in full flight throughout.

Professional Reviews

Spin (2/00, pp.114-5)
- 7 out of 10 - "...With a dollop of new stuff and a tic-laden reading of some classics, she makes the best of her ever-syrupy catalog..."

Entertainment Weekly (11/26/99, p.96)
- "...a compelling live performer - exuding intelligence, warmth, and a quirky combo of passion and Zen calm. She draws on these, and the gentler acoustic setting, for a powerful finish..." - Rating: B-

CMJ (12/13/99, p.27)
- "...M{her] powerful and expressive voice and songs stand up to the bare-bones treatment....each twisted [lyric] sounds more raw and painful..."
