You're Better Off With the Purple One
Well, first off, the Collection CD is pretty listenable and enjoyable, a mixed bag of well-known singles as well as other songs that Alanis seemed to think were important for the collection. The DVD, however, is a disappointment. The extra footage tracks it promises are two poorly shot tracks from her Jagged Little Pill tour (the audio's bad, too). However there's an accapella "Your House" from her JLP Acoustic tour which is quite good, and the music video for "Ironic". The hour-long documentary, quite entertaining though having little replay value, provides tantalizing clips of live footage from great songs such as "Princes Familar" and "Your Congratulations" as well as in the studio recording "You Owe Me Nothing in Return" and "Jagged Little Pill: Acoustic". One wonders why these selections weren't expanded in full instead of those poor JLP outtakes. Or, at least, several promotional music videos could be included. Photos, tourbooks and backstage passes redeem the DVD a little, but overall I felt hoodwinked into spending an extra eight bucks over the purple "Collection".Was this review helpful?
