This has to be my favourite Alanis album! (not jlp!) 'Front Row' has got to be one of my absolute tracks of all her work too- it's sheer brilliance and I still haven't managed to sing the backing 'other' lyrics within the liner notes along in time(Good job the walls are thick- i hope!) I was totally captivated by this album and overall think it has a great sound- other favourites include the beautiful and classic 'Thank U' - I also particularly like The couch and I was hoping. I was unlucky in that I receieved two albums that ghad different tracks on that would not play- Amazon were very helpful in resoving the issue- and by hearing a bit from one cd and a bit from the other I managed to write a brief review- in short- IT'S GREAT!

Jettisoning the bubblegum pop that made her a star in her native Canada, Alanis Morisette proceeded to release 1995's "Jagged Little Pill" - a hugely successful record with whose bitter lyrics and hormonal rage teenagers all over the world could identify. Naturally, this would be a tough act to follow for any artist.
However, Alanis released "Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie", an album obviously inspired by her travels to India, which, although initially rejected by the bulk of her huge fanbase, is arguably better than its predecessor. A brave move by anyone's standards, "Junkie" is a deeply introspective showcase of Alanis as a grown-up woman who embraces her flaws and seems determined to recover from her past.
Whether she is condemning fake gurus ("Baba"), aching for respect ("Would Not Come"), coming to terms with her family ("The Couch") or simply letting go and enjoying herself ("So Pure"), Alanis sets the unique swoon of her vocals to the swirling, multi-layered universe of eastern music and succeeds in delivering a masterpiece of emotion.
Though sometimes alienating, and nowhere near as catchy as "Pill", "Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie" was never really meant for top-of-the-charts appeal. Instead, it is a textured vision of Alanis' psyche; a battleground for issues, fears and self-doubt to clash and blend - in short, it is one the best albums of the '90s, and definitely one to buy.

It took me all of 2 months to actually get used to this album. I heard it once and was ready to return it back to the store after expecting a repeat of the collosal album "Jagged Little Pill". I still say JLP is a better album, but after looking deeper into "Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie" I can see how deep and spiritual it is. It was the lack of tune on the album that I hated at first, but every song has a tone that fits the mood and in the end it's backing music to alanis' poetry. It is an amazing album and would recommend it to anyone who likes music with a meaning. "Joining You", "I Was Hoping", "Baba" and "Unsent" are the best tracks.

This album is not quite as good as Jagged Little Pill but it still makes excellent listening. All tracks are original & the lyrics actually mean something. Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie is definitely one of my favourite CDs. Alanis Morissette writes all but a few of her tracks & she has a unique & wonderful voice. I would strongly reccomend this CD if you are looking for a good rock album thats not too heavy with decent meaningful lyics that are original.

Jagged Little Pill was diamond edged, razor sharp and electric blue.
Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie is thick, rich, deep red velvet.
It's a very different feel, and won't be for everyone, but it is superb.

There are only three singles here. But don't let that put you off, because as with most albums the singles tend to be the best and the rest is filler. With 17 tracks, you have to make sure that that does not happen. Alanis Morissette has crafted a work of absolute brilliance, and this in my opinion is better than both Jagged Little Pill and Under Rug Swept (but only just). Here is a track-by-track analysis:
FRONT ROW - It has a great, memorable hook line and sets the tone of this record perfectly.
BABA - Rockier and with use of electric guitar. But the chorus is still catchy.
THANK U - One of the best here. Morissette's vocals are purer than ever and the lyrics are close to her - a standout.
ARE YOU STILL MAD - Doesn't live up to the others with its slower, less melodic tone. But it isn't a filler.
SYMPATHETIC CHARACTER - Even rockier than "Baba" with lyrics that struggle to fit in. But this is still a great one.
THAT I WOULD BE GOOD - Vocals here are beautiful and it is the most acoustic song here. Another standout.
THE COUCH - Um...er...can't remember this one as much as the others, if that says anything. Sorry!
CAN'T NOT - Yet another rockier one. This album is rockier but better than JLP! Great hook.
UR - A quieter one with a pretty melody. Lighter than the others but by no means weak.
I WAS HOPING - The way she expresses her vocals here is original and stunning. Possibly the best track, but maybe an acquired taste to some.
ONE - Slower, melodic, brilliant.
WOULD NOT COME - Ranting and raving Alanis in full mode here - but that makes it all more fun.
UNSENT - Dear... is the storyline here. Writing unsent letters to former boyfriends with an irresistible melody. This woman is ace.
