2002 was the year that Alanis Morissette dug through the vaults of her "Under Rug Swept" studio sessions and prepared 9 b-sides to release on this CD and DVD set. "Feast on Scraps" is Alanis' Christmas 2002 release and consists of 9 previously unreleased tracks (that is, internationally since some tracks were previously released in different regions on CD singles) and a DVD containing footage from her Towards our Union Mended tour.
When compared to tracks from her previous albums, "Jagged Little Pill" and "Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie", "Feast on Scraps" features an obvious shift, both lyrically and musically. "Under Rug Swept", Alanis' February 2002 release was Alanis' first time flying solo in the studio, writing and producing all tracks alone, without the aid of producer Glen Ballard (most known for producing Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror"). The tracks showcase a more mainstream adult contemporary, rock/pop sound, when compared to tracks like "Unsent" from her 1998 release. With more distorted guitars and catchier melodies, Alanis had successfully changed her style. Of the 30-some songs that were written for "Under Rug Swept", 11 made the cut, and later in the year, 9 more were chosen for this release. The CD features some of my personal favorite Alanis tracks, including Bent 4 U, Sorry to Myself and Sister Blister.
The DVD features most of the 2002-08-13 stop of her "Towards Our Union Mended" tour at Ahoy in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Spliced in between the 21 track concert is various backstage footage and interviews from on the road. However, the major flaw, I feel, in the DVD is the fact that the whole show was not there! For half of the tracks, footage from various concerts were spliced together to form one song.

I was very upset with Alanis after finding out that she ditched Fear of Bliss and Sister Blister off the URS CD. While I admire her integrity and evolution, it was upsetting that fans and non-fans were deprived of such gems. What I think the URS CD track list should have been:
1 Fear of Bliss - 3rd single
2 Sister Blister - 1st single
3 Unprodigal Daughter
4 So Unsexy
5 A Man
6 Twenty One Things
7 Precious Illusions
8 Flinch
9 Hands Clean - 2nd single
10 Simple Together - 4th single
11 Bent for You
12 You Owe Me Nothing
13 Surrendering - 5th single
14 Utopia
Anyway, back to Feast of Scraps. Overall, the CD itself is a B+ only because it feels short but it has about 5 classics on it. And Alanis could have added Awakening Americans and Symptoms on the cd, although that would have made a pretty somber track listing. Here is my grade system for the songs:
1. Fear Of Bliss (A+)
2. Bent 4 U (B)
3. Sorry To Myself (B)
4. Sister Blister (A+)
5. Offer (A)
6. Unprodigal Daughter (A)
7. Simple Together (A-)
8. Purgatorying (B)
9. Hands Clean (A)
The DVD is just a marvel to watch and at the end I was left wanting more. The tracks Alanis chose to portray in the DVD were odd choices but still very good. I have great respect for an artist who doesn't focus on their mainstream hitlist during concerts. The contents overall is quite hilarious and really an opener for people who thought Alanis was perpetually dark and serious. Some scenes are quite emotional as well. Overall, this package is ambrosia for her fans.

I place the CD in my CD Player. I understand that the songs on this album are the ones that didn't make Under Rug Swept. I'm greeted with Fear Of Bliss. One song after another, I realize why these songs aren't on Under Rug Swept. That was a happy more upbeat album, and these songs were dark, brooding, angry. In other words, nothing like that album.
Regardless, this is some of her best work. Songs like Bent 4 U and Sister Blister belonged on Under Rug Swept. They could have been huge hits and restored Alanis to superstar status. At least in my opinion. All of them are great. I love Hands Clean in acoustic form.
After listening to the CD, I don't break the momentum and I immediately put on the DVD. I sit spellbound for the next 2 hours as we see Alanis entertain the people of Rotterdam with her biggest hits. She has a magnetic stage presence, running around and throwing her head every which way, her hair flying around. In between each song, we get a peek into Alanis's everyday life. Interesting and fun moments include Alanis breaking down and crying during her recording "Surrendering," Alanis making a very dirty acceptance "speech" while hanging out with friends, and whether she's acting like a robot or talking in a Cockney accent, Alanis is funny, intelligent, and she looks like she'd be a good friend to anyone. It invites you in and makes you feel that way.
I'm not even gonna complain about the sound because a: I don't care and b: if people are gonna drop a star because the quality is bad sometimes, they have no business owning this album.

This album is better than her recent major release "so called chaos" - I fell in love with some of the songs instantly. "Bent For you" is right out of my own life - as usual with alanis lyrics.... so pogniant and perfectly arranged.
