DVD Verdict Review - VH1 Storytellers: Alanis Morissette (656 words)
On the surface this "concert" (recorded in July of 1999) by Alanis Morissette sounds better than it actually is. At the start of the performance, Alanis tells the crowd that this experience of talking about her music is an uncomfortable one since she feels she says everything needed to say in each song.
Her reminiscences about her music often being and end with "it was a hard time in my life" or "this came from a break-up," which would be insightful if it wasn't well documented already that her music spews from a well of anger, bitterness, and pain.
But, I guess that's the curse of VH1 Storytellers; because the artists spend so much time talking about their music, their time for actual singing is cut in half (as evidenced by a recently broadcasted segment featuring an acoustic Bruce Springsteen with his wings clipped).
Alanis Morissette: VH1 Storytellers (1999) (1528 words)
Whereas Rod Stewart used his Storytellers mainly to shake his ass and look like an idiot, Alanis takes good advantage of the format.
Alanis Morissette: VH1 Storytellers appears in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1 on this single-sided, single-layered DVD; due to those dimensions, the image has not been enhanced for 16X9 televisions.
Storytellers comes with a low enough list price to entice fans, and I recommend it to those with an interest in Morissette.
