5.0 out of 5 stars Annoyingly chipper and yet still darned good, 9 May 2004
This review is from: Everything [CD 1] (Audio CD)
Asside from the fact that I should be shot for using the word "chipper", once again Miss. Morissette has managed to completely change her image and indeed genre, whilst still maintaining a solid insane fan base (of which I must be part of or I wouldn't have given this such a nice review :)).
Her claim to fame was being the first (or at least the first who was any good) of a long line of insane Canadian feminist singer/songwriters, selling enough copies of the man hatingly wonderful Jagged Little Pill to outsell even some of the most famous releases of all time.
"Everything" is a far cry from Jagged Little Pill, but then again so is all the material that she's released since. What seems to be so endearing about Alanis is that she doesn't just stick to the "same old songs" that she so easily could have done and her emotional and spiritual growth is clearly reflected in her music. Leaving her hair behind her, Alanis has released what seems to be a tribute to those around her, some of whom apear in her video. Although not particularly thought provoking, the song is very strong in terms of the competition of "feel good" songs out at the moment and surely a song that will secure the same success for So Called Chaos that her previous releases have.
It's a common misconception that only the loyal fans will enjoy Morissette's more recent offerings, and I myself only became a fan following Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie. As much as this will inevitably be a success with the fans, it is certainly a good point at which to jump on the proverbial Alanis train and enjoy the emotional offerings of such a hugely talented woman.
So buy it. Please :)
