Alanis -- Under Rug Swept

OK, I've just downloaded the whole thing (spare me the lecture of downloading music and copyrights, I'll buy the damn thing when it comes out).... And it's fantastic!!




1. 21 Things I Want In A Lover
Great way to start. Upbeat, rocking, great lyrics!

2. Narcissus
Not my fave on here, but it's still great.

3. Hands Clean
Current single.

4. Flinch
Absolutely brill! I just adore this song. Wonderful lyrics!

5. So Unsexy
Slower tempo, very different than the first 4 songs. Excellent song, none the less.

6. Precious Illusions
Superb!

7. That Particular Time
Best Alanis ever. Nothing else to say.

8. A Man
A little but clunky here between #6 and #8, but it's a good song, maybe just misplaced.

9. You Ow Me Nothing In Return
Very moody and dark. I could see this as a single.

10. Surrendering
LOVE IT

11. Utopia
Sad, haunting yet a hint of hope. Lyrically sound!

OMG! OMG! yay i love you seles fellow alanis fan!

Yeah this album is brilliant and i'm definitely buying it on Feb 26th or 25th i forgot!!

My review then!

1. 21 Things I Want In A Lover
Excellent song! I love the beat!
<i>Are you unhinbited in bed more than 3 times a week, up for being experimental?</i>

2. Narcissus
Not my fave either, weird lyrics but catchy.
<i>You go back to your friends who will lick your ass</i>

3. Hands Clean
I love it, radio friendly!
<i>I might marry you one day if you watch that weight and keep your firm body</i>

4. Flinch
Beautiful but not my fave!
<i>i'll only flinch at your name</i>

5. So Unsexy
Excellent song!
<i>I can feel so unsexy for someone so beautiful</i>

6. Precious Illusions
Superb indeed, certainly my fave, see my signature.
<i>You'll rescue me right? in the exact same way they never did</i>

7. That Particular Time
I like it but not as much.

8. A Man
Quite a scary music lol! i like it though!
<i>i am a man, as a man i've been told..</i>

9. You Owe Me Nothing In Return
Excellent song! I love the lyrics!
<i>You owe me nothing for giving the love that i gave, you owe me nothing for caring the way that i did, i give you thanks for receiving it's my privilege and you owe me nothing in return</i>

10. Surrendering
LOVE IT TOOOOOOOO!!
<i>And i salute you for your courage and i applaud your perseverance</i>

11. Utopia
Really sad but beautiful and lyrics are so true!
<i>We would open our arms, we'd all jump in, we'd all coast down into safety nets</i>

Also listen to the b-sides, they're excellent, she wrote 27 songs and only 11 on the album.

Listen to Unprodigal Daughter, Fear of Bliss, Sister Blister, Bent 4 U, Awakening Americans etc.

She's soooo totally awesome! Last weekend on MMUSA (Much Music) they had a concert w/her where she surprised a girl in her school and sang some new songs. It was so good.

Thumbs up

I love Hands Clean!

At least that is how it feels to me

I have to buy this album when it comes out! Only 11 songs. A much shorter album than her previous two. Any "hidden" songs like "Your House" on Jagged Little Pill?

Aloysus, i think there's one hidden song but i'm not sure. Also they will be a lot of b-sides on the singles, and a dvd!

I'm so excited i cant wait!

Lightbulb

I like Alanis, too!

I have "Jagged Little Pill" and "Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie" so I suppose I'll get the new album someday.

"You Oughta Know" is such a KICK-ASS song


I wish Sheryl Crow would hurry up and get a new album out!
