Biography

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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait!!! 4 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In the past I've bought both Alanis's albums (the brilliant 'Jagged liitle pill' and not so brilliant 'Supposed former infatuated Junkie'.) As I just said, I loved 'Jagged' and still play it alot now, but I wasn't at all keen on the latter- it seemed to be a lot darker than the songs from Jagged (apart from 'Thankyou' which I really liked.) Needless to say I wasn't sure whether to risk buying 'Under rug swept.'
Let me just say I have absolutely no regrets:
'21 things I want in a lover' is quite steady-paced, not my fave song on the album by far, but very good. As soon as I heard it, it reminded me straight away of the style of 'Jagged' album and I only hoped the rest would be just as good- but it just got better.
'Narcissus' has grown on me so much I can't stop listening to it. Alanis's songs tend to have this effect on you, whereby you'll hear the songs, like the beat but not really take in the words. Then after hearing the song 2 or 3 times, you realise how true& brilliant her lyrics are- she doesn't just talk about a load of made up rubbish. You find yourself really connecting/understanding the meanings of the songs (not on a really deep level, but you know what I mean.)Narcissus is my 3rd fave song on this cd-but it's very hard to describe it.
Next there's 'Hands clean' which she's just released as a single. I love this song, and this is probably my fave song on the album. I love the chorus- and find myself singing along to it all the time. It's quite upbeat for Alanis but excellent all the same.
'Flinch' is very good, but slower than the rest, and it doesn't really have a chorus asuch, it reeminded me a lot of her songs 'Mary Jane' and 'Perfect' if that means anything to anybody.

5.0 out of 5 stars DO I SENSE THE YEAR OF ALANIS???? 7 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
GUYS......what more can I say? After listening the to the complete album...I am left speechless! Hardcore "Jagged Little Pill" fans....your goddess has made and will make her presence known again in the year 2002--"Supposed Former Infactuation Junkie" fans....you are going to be in heaven with the stream of consciousness and deeply geared lyrics that Morissette utilizies throughout the progression of this new album.
This artist has grown, matured and will be in the mind of the rock/pop scene for many years to come. This woman/songwriter/producer/artist --compares nothing more but to the great Madonna---constantly changing, redefining herself--giving a new meaning to the word "music" with every album she unleashes.
Potential Singles: 21 Things I Want in a Lover, Narcissus, Hands Clean, Precious Illusions, You Owe Me Nothing In Return, Surrendering, So Unsexy
Tracks to "Sweep Under the Rug": Flinch, That Particular Time, A Man, Utopia.
If Ms. Morissette plays it right with this album, over half of the album can be released with radio play and heavy rotation (for 7 tracks!!!!!) It could literally meet or surpass Jagged Little Pill.
Did I also mention that she (along with this album ) debut #1 on the Billboard? I can say with confidence that "Alanis is back".

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite CD in my collection 9 April 2002
By Rooster
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is far less angry than her first two CDs. I have those too and think they are great. This is brilliant and different.
She seems to have gone from anger at all men for being nasty to acceptance of the fact and resignation to it. She's a superb wordsmith, and I love the way she alters rhyme, reason, meter, pronunciation and acceptable accenting of words to fit with the tune.
It starts with "21 Things I Want in a Lover" which to my mind are all perfectly reasonable requests for qualities in a partner for either sex. It's certainly what I've always tried to be.
There follows a song called "Narcissus" which encapsulates many men who I think we all know.
Then it is "Hands Clean" which is agonising in its relentless assault on your feelings for this poor girl remembering being treated so shoddily by a successful and insensitive man. It also goes to show how difficult it is to get over it when love ends.
"Flinch" is simply superb. It shows again just how long it takes anyone to get over love (except, apparently, for the men in this distressed girl's life) and how the longing, and the anger at that longing, stays with you forever. It's simple disbelief that anyone can affect you as much as that.
One of my favourites is "So Unsexy". It bites straight into me as I realise it is just like me with all that tormenting self-doubt; but at least it has hope at the end!
"Precious Illusions" is also devastatingly accurate to all those people entering a relationship and wondering tentatively whether it will be as bad as whatever finished the last one. It's about wondering who you are and who you aren't and I simply love those last two lines!
"That Particular Time" is so beautifully worded, quiet, gentle and broody.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blessed to the Bone. 12 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I love the fact that in the CD booklet Alanis says that she feels 'blessed to the bone' and blessed she is. Her music is rooted in something firmer than fashion, her voice is powerful and tender, her lyrics are wise and divulging, her music is nostalgic and satiating. This is her at her most mature yet and every song here is a nice brim circle of its own which tells its tell and cuts right through to the bone. It is good to know that with all the recycled reproduced reiterated trash we are forced to listen to nowadays there are a few artists who are striving for originality and realizing a vision that is entirely their own. It is rare that a singer sings to your heart, and Alanis does.
She goes and she goes well. Good luck in every thing you do and don't, me lady.
As for my favorite song, well, you touch me like you are my god, 'Flinch'.
