This review is from: Jagged Little Pill (Audio CD)1. All I Really Want - A fantastic opener, and the opening guitar riff will be in your head all day! The lyrics in this song are really well-thought out, however it does lack a bit of 'oomph'. 4/5
2. You Oughta Know - Wow. This song really shows off Alanis' voice, and is a great song to listen to loudly when you're really annoyed! It starts off nice, slow and relaxed, and then explodes into the lively chorus. One of the best songs on the album, I think. 5/5
3. Perfect - On first listen, it appears a bit slow and dull, after the first two amazing tracks. However, listen to it a few times, and it grows on you. 3.5/5
4. Hand In My Pocket - This is a nice track to ahve on in the background, but, like All I Really Want and Perfect, it lacks the big chorus that You Oughta Know has. 3.5/5
5. Right Through You - Like You Oughta Know, it starts off slow and relaxed, and then the fast-paced chorus comes in. 4/5
6. Forgiven - A nice hearfelt song about the Catholic religion, probably one of my favourites4.5/5
7. you Learn - A nice 'pop' song, and a nice catchy chorus and verse. 4/5
8. Head Over Feet - This is a really nice song, and fits well with You Learn. 4/5
9. Mary Jane - Still not too sure about this one. It's a slow one, and it seems to have a slightly melancholy side to it. 4/5
10. Ironic - Another one of my favourites. The chorus really gets you going, and all the things that happen make me smile a little ;) 5/5
11. Not The Doctor - On first lsiten, this was a favourite of mine. Immediately draws you in, nice and catchy. 4/5
12. Wake Up - This one seems to lack a little bit of something. Not too sure what though, but still a good song. 3.5/5
13. Your House - The hidden track after Wake Up (Or a different version of You Oughta Know on some versions). On the first few lsitens, it just sounded like a depressed woman warbling. But when you actually lsiten to the song, rather than having it in the background, it's a really ncie song. 4/5
Overall, a great album. The whole thing fits really nicely in with each other. My only complaint is that some of the songs don't have the same catchy feels that the gems like you Oughta Know, Ironic and other have.
Also, this is a very different album to her next, Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie. All I Really Want sounds the most like the sort of thing on SFIJ, so if you like that, you may like her next aswell.
