On So-called Chaos Alanis Morissette sounds paradoxically like a woman who has found her own peace with the world. So-called Chaos finds her in a life-affirming, positive place, making music that in a sense sums up her past strengths along with some newfound maturity and perspective. The resulting album is a set of Morissette's most adult and compelling songs, compositions that more than ever explore life's emotional dualities.
It's been a long time in coming, but with So Called Chaos Alanis Morisette has finally produced a worthy follow up to her globe-conquering debut. Calmer and more focused, the songs exude a new, mature woman, firmly in control of her life. "I'm not threatened by every pair of legs you watch go by", she sings with Zen-like serenity on "I Doth Protest Too Much" (as if she'd have said that on Jagged Little Pill). Time mellows--leave the angst to Avril Lavigne.
Over exposure once made her fantastic voice grate, but now it's like welcoming back an old friend--that distinctive little warble, that softness... it's her most valuable asset and the simple, clean production wisely allows it to breathe freely. Most of the songs follow a slow, quiet verse/loud sucker chorus pattern and there's nothing on here that rivals anything from her debut, but everybody (including herself) has accepted that now. The absence of a world-class cosongwriter plays a part, but it's a refreshing change to see no external involvement. Accept Morisette for what she is--a female singer songwriter with an exceptional, original voice, and you won't be disappointed. --Ben Johncock

'So Called Chaos' is the much-delayed successor to JLP in the sense that Ms. Morissette has progressed in a direction that I prefer. Her upbeat melodies juxtapositioned with her insightful lyrics exposing her incredible vernacular and broad range emotion make for a brilliant and innovative combination, last seen in JLP. With incredibly uplifting tracks like 'Eight Easy Steps' which could even appear in the next 'Legally Blonde' movie, show a more positive aspect to her music, the single 'Everything' which has been more popular on MTV than any other Alanis Morissette since the 'naked' video, 'Doth I Protest Too Much', 'Out Is Through', 'Excuses', 'Knees of My Bees' and 'This Grudge' shine out of the album which are a return to a happier place.Read more ›
Almost every review compares this album to JLP. Why do people do this? Saying JLP is better than SCC is like saying red is better than green or France is better than Russia. You simply cannot compare two things which are so different. JLP was set in a different time and a different place. If it came out now it may be the biggest flop ever or an even bigger success - who knows??? Just listen to the album right the way through about 4 times then tell me you don't like it - you won't!
As with all Alanis's albums the lyrics are still on top form. Stand out tracks being Doth I Protest Too Much, This Grudge, So-Called Chaos, Not All Me and Everything.
This album is a grower, as with most of Alanis's work. When I first got it I wasn't too sure about it, I felt it was too poppy for me. But as I've listened to it more, Ive found ive not stopped playing it!
This album is better than her previous one Under Rug Swept and on a par with Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie and Feast On Scraps. If you liked Feast on Scraps then the tone of the music is similar to that. Still not as good as Jagged Little Pill but then I don't think that will ever be bested.
Although not Alanis's best album its still a great buy and better than most albums out there!!
1. Eight Easy Steps - a really catchy song, that satirises the public's persona of Alanis. The tune does not have all of the Alanis brilliance of tracks that are slightly less predictable.
2. Out Is Thru - again, rocky and catchy, but there are few twists. Lyrics on this track and throughout the album are, of course, simply amazing. Lyrics are what Alanis does best. Some reviewers may take something she's written, and say how silly it looks in isolation - they completely miss the point.
3. Excuses - hurrah! Proper Alanis material - the tune and lyrics are clever, and this one is fast growing on me. Some of her best tracks just don't work the first time through, but they get better and better.
4. Doth I Protest Too Much - my favourite track on the album. I love the title; I think it's so clever to take one of Shakespeare's phrases that is in everyday usage and warp it slightly. The chorus is amazing - seems simple but takes a genius to write.
5. Knees Of My Bees - hmm... I don't understand this one "you make the knees of my bees weak..." I'm afraid I do judge songs partly by their title, and I was never going to particularly like this one. I still enjoy it, but it's not a highlight of the album for me.
6. So Called Chaos - another great track.Read more ›
