When Alanis Morissette was in the studio, taking on all the jobs by herself this time around, there was a question of the new music's quality. If you've heard her latest release "Under Rug Swept", you know she did a terrific job, especially on the first single, "Hands Clean". This single (Part One of two) features 3 extra tracks that were left off of the album. In a nutshell, these songs wouldn't have sounded at all out of place on the album...which means they're all just as fantastic. "Awakening Americans" is a twangy soft rocker that soothes yet once again explodes with honesty and frustration from the artist herself. "Symptoms" is a light trance rocker that you could call a part two to "..Americans" in my opinion, sweet-sung but still emotionally wrung. "Unprodigal Daughter" is a song that fans knew about a year ago, when Alanis first started previewing songs off her "forthcoming CD". This was expected to be on the album, and there was a bit of surprise when it wasn't included. It sounds better as a b-side, however, and creates an excellent change of pace/sound for the "Hands Clean" single as a whole.
Go for this one! And get part Two.
