11 Songs, 46 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Striking a perfect balance between honest self-reflection and fierce, unbridled catharsis, this might be one of our favorite breakup albums of all time. One minute, Alanis' otherworldly voice sounds tender and heartbroken on the delicate ballad "Torch." The next, her tone turns splendidly icy, backed by a torrent of synths on the wickedly smart character assassination "Straitjacket." The emotions here are as big as the end of a relationship, and there's no singer we'd rather feel them with.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Alanis at her best.

Classic Alanis. Much like Suppossed Former...But more sonically pleasing. The production is great. Get the deluxe version with The Guy who Leaves. Wish it had been better promoted. Could've been a smash with four or five singles and great videos. Tapes and Citizen of the Planet are incredible.
