I believe it is being sold ahead of the formal release at Starbucks. Best Buy and CC state 07.26.2005 as the national release. Thanks for the information, though! I'll be out to grab it tonight!

It seems this has caused a bit of a stir ... I read about this on Netscape yesterday, some of the retailers are pulling her albums. I thought it said some of the Big Boy's were yanking all her albums
This is all could find today.
Starbucks> Alanis Morissette Exclusive
Posted Jun 8, 2005, 2:50 PM ET by Brad Hill
Starbucks, resembling a record label/distributor lately, has obtained a six-week exlusive on Alanis Morissettes new acoustic album, a remake of Jagged Little Pill. Small CD stores are furious, threatening to pull all inventory from Morissettes label. This piece in the Village Voice predictably carries a caustic tone about everything Starbucks, but there is no question the coffee retailer has one foot in the future, and gets one important fact as weel as Steve Jobs does: Its not about the product, its about the lifestyle.
Do you know what happens when you "ROB" Peter to pay Paul ... you end up with a sore Peter
I hope it sounds better than most of her live crap, she really does alot of vocal rambling if you ask me and I cant take much of it....I think she still thinks she is the shit as far as being an "artist", her star faded very very fast IMO this new album just means she is washed out and has pretty much "jumped the shark"
Chadnliz, c'mon...let us know what you really think :-) I'm not sure about her live performances, as I've never seen her...but your post did give me a chuckle!
That being said, I really do think that "Jagged Little Pill" was an audio triumph for the ages. The lyrics and vocal projections of angst, anger, and alienation were sheer musical poetry. I think that this would qualify for a "one hit wonder" album!
All that deep emotion from a 20 something woman, OH the angst...oh the angst!
Ok so I have Jagged lil pill...now all my dark shameful secrets are revealed and I have nothing more to hide lol c'mon guys, YOU YOU YOUUU OUGHTAAAAAAAAAAA KNOOOOOOW, I have to go I cant type fast 'cause I got one hand in my pocket and the other ones waiving a peace sign
Is the foul language cleaned up on the new acoustic version? Starbucks was going to sell "Devils and Dust" by Bruce, but backed out because of the lyrical content of "Reno", which is a far more thoughtful "adult-content" lyric than "You Oughta Know".
Sorry, comparing Bruce and Alanis is somewhat akin to comparing the Great Wall of China to my back yard fence...
I wouldn't be surprised if "Pill" was cleaned up. Starbucks probably has that kind of clout...
