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.
