Alanis Morisette has a new CD called Under Rug Swept with tracks like "Hands Clean"

2002 (Maverick)

Alanis Morissette is back with her first studio album since 1998's Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie. On her latest CD, Under Rug Swept, Alanis Morissette continues her unique storytelling about relationships gone wrong and what she's learned from them.

The first single, Hands Clean, is already burning up the charts - proof that Alanis Morissette hasn't lost her touch. The songs on Under Rug Swept are guitar-driven, edgy pop songs but just because they're pop doesn't mean Alanis is singing about how cute so-and-so is or other cheesy issues. Alanis is not cut from the same cloth as girl pop groups. Most of the music on Under Rug Swept blends keyboards and acoustic guitars giving it a different feel than ...Infatuation Junkie. Songs like the upbeat Narcissus take you up while gentler acoustic tunes like Utopia take you away.

Alanis had the help of some very notable guests playing on the CD including Meshell Ndegeocello (bassist,) Dean DeLeo (guitarist, Stone Temple Pilots) and Eric Avery (bassist, fomerly of Janes's Addiction.) The CD is full of great introspective tunes, although one more upbeat song would probably have gone a long way. For a pop CD with more substance than Britney puts in her hair, check out Under Rug Swept by Alanis Morissette.

    Three Brothers were stranded on an island. They found a lamp.  1st brother: Hey! Maybe this is a magic lamp like the movies. They rubbed it. Nothing happened. They tried again. Nothing. They tried and tried again, until almost all hope was pulled from their very hearts. 2nd brother: Maybe we will be stuck here forever 3rd brother: Yeah 1st brother: Nonsense! There has to be another way Fortunately the lamp was just delayed. Very very delayed. Something appeared. It had legs, It couldn't be a genie Unknown creature: Hello. It is the genie. 1st brother:You don't look lik- Genie: Enough! Each of you have one wish. 1st brother: I wish to go home. His wish was granted. Home he went. 2nd brother: I wish to go home with my brother. 2 down, 1 to go. 3rd brother: I wish my brothers were here so I'm not lonely.
