On her new album Havoc and Bright Lights, Alanis Morissette distills her entire body of work into its closing track “Edge of Evolution.” “…we’re ready to push envelopes into full-blown consciousness,” she declares in the final verse. “The evolution of our consciousness can be such a lofty, overly heady, and, frankly, confusing conversation for ...

Product Description


You could argue that Jagged Little Pill is the commercialised face of grunge. You could argue that Morrisette is just a cynical businesswoman, courting controversy with a few carefully placed, risqué references. You could even argue that this whole angst-rock is just a comfort-blanket for the therapy-generation. But it's still hard to argue that Jagged Little Pill isn't a great album. After all, it's the perfect alternative/mainstream crossover. There's "You Oughta Know", which marries its vitriolic, explicit narrative to thunderous, airbrushed grunge. With references to oral sex, Middle America were shocked, but not quite offended: it sold by the truckload. There's "Ironic", where Morrisette laments the trials that face every housewife ("there's ten thousand spoons / when all you need is a knife") to a scream-along, mosh-friendly chorus. The simple truth is, on Jagged Little Pill, the Canadian-born Alanis Morrisette does a very good job of being America's Everywoman. --Louis Pattison

5.0 out of 5 stars I never get tired of this album 24 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
'Jagged Little Pill' was recently voted at number 42 in 'Q' music magazine's best 50 albums of the last 15 years. We're talking alongside Radiohead, Sringsteen, U2 and all the other music greats. Personally I think Alanis' music is a fantastic change to the current obsession with trashy teen pop which regurgitates the same old stuff every month. Pop artists bring out crappy albums in quick succession, but we have to wait over 2 years for something new from the truly great artists. This album has stood the test of time in my cd collection. There is a song for every mood (although non-fans claim Alanis is depressing.) Every one of her songs has something to say about an aspect of life, from religion to relationships. Alanis consistently produces some of the best lyrics I've heard in a long time. Its too easy for female lyricists to be labelled negatively, but anyone with brains can she this woman has talent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sentimentality 25 July 2006
By Shell
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was a young teenage girl when I first heard this album. I coveted this album; I enjoyed its energy and ballsy attitude towards the antagonists in Alanis' life and I loved that, even though I barely understood the nature of its lyrics, I could so easily remember those words and relate to them in my own way.

However, I'm alot older now and I can appreciate its intellectual value as well (alright, so it's not Homer). Alanis, although barely in her 20s at the time of writing, seems to have nailed some of people's most elusive behaviour through her effective use of metaphors, personification and similes. And she has written so much of this album in the second-person narrative; perhaps the reason why I felt so close to the album as a teenager. Whichever you listen to this album yourself, you will probably relate to its issues of trust, failure and expectation which, for Alanis' young perspective, are surprisigly astute. And angry. This is part of Alanis that you may not want to indulge in too much; there's alot of negative energy that just doesn't need to propositioned as a burden of your own.

So, listen at your discretion and comfort, and don't believe everything she says! ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars "...Perfect..." 4 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
I'll make this short and sweet: Undoubtedly, Alanis at her best, arguably, the best album *EVER*. If you've just heard Ironic, and thought it was ok but forgettable I beg you to purchase this, Ironic isn't even the the sixth best song on there, it's one of those albums everyone has to own, and after a good listen, I'm sure you'll see why.
A timeless masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the very very best from the nineties! 14 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
An astonishing album that came from nowhere to take over the world in 1995. It still sounds brilliant today and it would be somewhere in my list of all-time favourite albums. This much soul, naked feeling and uplifting intelligence rarely co-incides with massive commercial success.

Every song on "Jagged Little Pill" is strong, even the odd one I personally am not so keen on. A freshness and energy come through on every track. On later albums Alanis sometimes comes across as self-indulgent, even self-obsessed, but here her screaming and ranting just sound honest and genuine. This woman has really had enough of being treated like dirt, make no mistake! Alanis goes right into her emotional and psychological troubles but empowers herself and the listener at the same time.

The production by co-writer Glen Ballard is subtle and not too sophisticated, which serves the songs well. The final song "Wake Up" is one of my favourites, a call to get up off your backside and take responsibility for your life. I love this album. Thank you Alanis, Glen Ballard and friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best piece of Alternative music EVER! 8 Jan 2003
By Ahmed
Format:Audio CD
An inspiring album that is peaceful, enjoyable and at the same time one you would want to dance along with. Jagged Little Pill is still Alanis' best album ever as well as being one of my all time favourite albums!
The hit of the album for quite a few people was the Grammy-award winning single of the year "you outta know"! Well...not exactly my thoughts. My friends and I always loved "ironic" even before the video was released. "Ironic" is a peaceful, fun, alternative musical theme that you would want to play constantly. It's Alanis' biggest "CD single sales" track being certified gold. If you enjoyed "thank you" you would enjoy this single. It's one of my all-time favourite records (see listmania list). Alanis is a great singer with a fabulous voice and a great writer. If you happen to enjoy this album you should check out "rug under swept" and "Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie". But if you're only going to buy one Alanis album, this one should be it.
Ironic- The hit of the album for me. This alternative/pop trackis peaceful and very enjoyable.
U outta know- A rock bad-tempered constructive single.
Hand in my pocket- good voice variations and a good constant background beat.
You learn- A sweet catchy beat, second only to "ironic".
Head over feet- Another enjoyable new age type catchy single.
Wake up- the album's longest track, a solid sweet alternative rock hit!
Different songs in their own way make this album one that would be enjoyable for all Alanis Morissette, Sheryl Crow, Celine Dion, Enya, Shania Twain, Christina Aguilera, and U2 fans! If you like this album you should check out some of her other works (mainly "thank you" and "hands clean")!
