I bought this package of a DVD and CD in March of this year (2011), together with The Collection and Flavors of Entanglement. It contains a DVD of a live performance, which was recorded on the 13th of August in Ahoy, Rotterdam, The Netherlands. It took me a while to find that out, but I think it is pretty cool that it was in 'my' country: I could have been there actually! Although in 2002 I was not going to concerts that often. If she will visit the Netherlands again I am certainly going! The bonus disc consists of b-sides which were left off Under Rug Swept.
I watched the DVD two times and I must say, I don't really like it. It would have been much better if it was just the recording of the full concert, without all those things in between. Of course it is nice to have some additional material, like interviews and behind the scenes, but I would have liked it to be optional and not so much as it is now. …

As I am planning to review all of the albums I own, I see no reason to skip the compilation albums, although it is hard to compare them to the 'normal' studio albums. I bought this album in March of this year (2011) to complete my own collection (!) of Alanis, but I already knew most of the songs. The album consists of 18 songs of which 13 were released on earlier albums, 4 came from soundtracks and other albums and 1 is the cover of Seal's Crazy, which was released as a single. I think it is always difficult to compile a 'best-of' album, especially when an artist have had many hits, like Alanis. According to Alanis (in the booklet) these songs are her favourites, at that time at least. Personally I would have chosen differently, I think.
The album doesn't contain any songs of the time before Jagged Little Pill.
From the album Jagged Little Pill, it contains the following songs:

Flavors of Entanglement is a record that wants to describe a crisis. And the escape from it. And the release. I loved this record since the very first day I listened to it. It was not the same feeling you have whenever you listen to your favorite artist's new cd, which makes you that excited to let you believe it's the best record she could have released. This time the feeling lasted more than those 24 hours.
I wasn't excited about an Alanis full length record since Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie. Which is like to say 10 years ago (wow!).
Beside the fascination for Under Rug Swept's experimental aspects and the amazingness to listen to that gem of an EP, called Feast on Scraps, I had felt so distant from who used to be my favorite lyricist.
This album, probably because it's a result of a suffered path, doesn't disappoint me on any track. It's linear, it's consequential, it's full of outstanding poems made in music.
