When Jewel released her debut album Pieces Of You in 1995, her raw ruminations about life's big questions were a throwback to the coffee house singer and would prove the perfect foil to the venom of Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill, which followed it by mere months, with both albums gaining phenomenal commercial traction.

The two best songs on that album - Who Will Save Your Soul and You Were Meant For Me - are still her signature tunes 15 years later from a catalogue of albums that have seemed to suggest Jewel (or her advisers) has never really known whether she's country, rock, pop, folk or MOR.

Two of her biggest singles - Foolish Game and Am I Standing Still - showcase her country crossover appeal, which is probably where Jewel best fits if she wants to find the pieces of herself again.
