Yet another surprise for me as I fully expected this to bomb out in the immediate half of the rate, instead it almost makes it to our halfway point. 'Disconnected' was included in the release of 'Who Knew', back when b-sides were a thing, and it smartly deals with a disconnect with life itself by wrapping it up in a telephone call metaphor. I've always loved the theme and the way she bounces around lyrically, but never felt it punched as hard as anything on I'm Not Dead.
Considering the negativity in the commentary I'm pleasantly surprised to see it last until now, because there's definitely a gorgeous song inside of here and the chorus melody is pretty great - so for a bonus track, this is a hit.
@abael: (3) Pinks attempt at a track aiming both for empathy and independence is a misfire. She ends up reshaping her persona more negatively here than in songs in which that is the intent
@Laurence: (7) This works well to me, I think it's an OK track right at the end and it stands out because the others are a bit too filler for me.
@Music Is Life: (10) This is my favorite B-side from the era that didn’t become a bonus track. I just love the lyrics, and I think the rough production pairs extremely well with them.
@Maki: (6.25) My least favorite out of the bonus tracks/B-sides from "I'm Not Dead". It leans more towards the bland side. It has a nice hook, but nothing in particular is memorable about it (perhaps that voice message bits). I guess I'm a bit 'disconnected' with this song.
@R27: (8) This was a really great discovery. Mid-2000s pop rock executed flawlessly.
