I always lose interest fast after "Hand In My Pocket". There truly isn't a bad song on here. It's an album without any surprises though. It starts out promising, but then soon you realize about halfway this is ALL she does, and that despite some solid songwriting on the second half, it all blends into one "#;[email protected]
Should be one of a handful of albums to be put into a time capsule. No other female has made a single album that is more powerful and influential than Alanis on JLP.
Should not have been remastered
Disappointed. Sounds so cold and disconnected. I used to really get into these songs with the combination of lyrics and powerful music but the warmth has been stripped.
Bring back the original version!
The original version of Jagged Little Pill is amazing. It's such a great album from beginning to end without even one wasted song. With various diverse topics covered and Alanis' powerful voice backing the tracks, to me this album embodies female empowerment. It's fantastic and one-of-a-kind, and this coming from a guy! It's one of my favorite albums of all time.
But, this remastered version lost the power and emotion of the original. Thankfully, I downloaded the original when iTunes still had it. Having this version is a big disappointment and disservice to music aficionados. Please iTunes, bring back the original Jagged Little Pill for everyone's listening pleasure!
Lesson to Other Artists
By Thomas Harman
Don't let iTunes mess up your music, not all music needs to be remastered. Waste of money, time, and takes away the greatness of this Album. Had to give 5 stars to be included for others to read. Otherwise 1 star.
I understand the issues with the remastered version
By Bob the astronomer
Yes, the digital chill is obvious. It's like they took the raw, feminine strength and rage of Alanis and digitally subdued it. Still, she's an icon and a glorious work of art.

I loved this cd this is my favorite artist of all time! This made me started too like soft rock!!!
Remaster is Bad
One of the most amazing albums of the 1990’s. Unfortunately, this remastered version is poorly done. It lack the warmth of the original.
WOW! Looked up Alanis because my mother mentioned her some time ago as an artist I might like. I was kind of like who the heck is she? But as soon as I heard the samples for head over feet and Ironic I got this big cheesy grin on my face. It was like a total flashback to when I was a kid and these songs played on the pop stations. I was only 4 or so when this album was released so this is a real nostalgia trip for me. I do so love 90s and early 00s music.
As we age and as we mature, our likes and dislikes grow and develop right along with us. I've lost track of how many times my taste for music, movies, food, hobbies, etc has changed throughout my 32 years. My love for this album, though, has NEVER changed. (Well, unless you want to consider falling even DEEPER in love with it, that is!!) I still remember every single lyric and I still love every single song. "Jagged Little Pill" will ALWAYS hold a special place in my heart. Ohh, The memories that keep flooding back, though!! The 90s were such a memorable era for me! I can honestly say that this is my top five favorites of all time! And we all know there's a $h!t ton of music out there, so that's pretty impressive!
