17 Songs, 1 Hour 11 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

With all the blistering honesty we'd expect—and a calm gratitude we didn't—Alanis' follow up to Jagged Little Pill proves lightning can strike twice, but not quite the way we imagined. With Arabic-inspired melodies, dark electronic grooves, fuzzy guitars, and sparkling keyboards, Morissette delivers warmhearted songs like "Thank U" and "So Pure" with gentle serenity. Though it feels like the calm after the storm, the tension roiling underneath the seemingly languid confessional "Unsent" suggests this album might be the eye of a hurricane.

@ 13, I was not impressed older I got...

the more I understood. This is actually a completly underrated masterpiece that was considered a failure when put up to the masses success and sales of JLP. So unfair, this showcased the true talent she has and that she could do more than radio hits and combine it with her raw lyrics. Songs like 'Front Row' 'The Couch' 'Unsent' & 'That I Would Be Good' were certainly a challang to the radio waves and that's why I think it failed commercially because there was no way to promote it like JLP. It's more like the anti JLP in a musical sense. This was a darker reach into the back of the mind, where some of the deeper and dark thoughts hid. They always surface and although the songs are quite unusual on here, if you listen close enough , you will understand.

Her Best Effort...

I don't know what it is about this album... But it's my personal favorite from Alanis Morissette. I fell in love with "U Oughta Know" just like everyone else did. However, I feel that "Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie" was her "real" alternative music album. I think that most of the songs on here are just that... very alternative. Sample the songs if U have a moment... U may just find a few that make your life more complete.
