Product Description

Amazon.ca

You could argue that Jagged Little Pill is the commercialised face of grunge. You could argue that Morrisette is just a cynical businesswoman, courting controversy with a few carefully placed, risqué references. You could even argue that this whole angst-rock is just a comfort-blanket for the therapy-generation. But it's still hard to argue that Jagged Little Pill isn't a great album. After all, it's the perfect alternative/mainstream crossover. There's "You Oughta Know", which marries its vitriolic, explicit narrative to thunderous, airbrushed grunge. With references to oral sex, Middle America were shocked, but not quite offended: it sold by the truckload. There's "Ironic", where Morrisette laments the trials that face every housewife ("there's ten thousand spoons / when all you need is a knife") to a scream-along, mosh-friendly chorus. The simple truth is, on Jagged Little Pill, the Canadian-born Alanis Morrisette does a very good job of being America's Everywoman. --Louis Pattison

4.0 out of 5 stars Good price but no secret song. Jan. 25 2013
By vrock
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
This is a good price for the record. I'm glad they finally reproduced it on vinyl as the originals sell for up to $200+. I was hoping the secret song would be on it but no luck. Happy to have it in my collection though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Album Dec 28 2012
By Seeker
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
It took a long time for me to warm up to this album her histrionic vocals caught me off guard but with every listen I grew to like it more and more and now I think it is one of the best albums of the 90's. This vinyl version is definetely better sounding than CD I have. Warmer and a little more dynamic. I still feel that the sound is fuller on some songs than others, maybe it was recorded in a couple of different studios. I would go out and get this if you are interested.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Unquestionnably The Best Album of The 90s" July 17 2004
By X
Format:Audio CD
I never really liked Alanis until i heard "Ironic"..i then listened to her album and...wow, i jus completely changed my view on her. My personal favourite is "You Oughta Know", its just...rage and emotion, some think she's crazy, but..i think thats good music. Same goes to "Right Through U" and "Unforgiven". All the songs on this album are different from each other. They have different meanings and topics,no wonder why she won album of the year at the Grammys. I also love "Hand In My Pocket" and "You Learn". I love the harmonica in "Head Over Feet", u jus cant match it. "Mary Jane" really shows her vocal ability and her hittin the high notes, i guess u can call it the "ballad" on the album.Overall, whoever doesnt have this album..its a must, ur missin out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Angry on the surface but empowering at its core July 3 2006
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
When you talk about the biggest albums of the 90s, you certainly have to talk about 1995's Jagged Little Pill. Alanis Morissette, to my mind, came to represent a version of the new woman of the 90s, leaving no questions as to her feelings and, some might say, demands. Decades ago, Aretha wanted R-E-S-P-E-C-T, but Alanis wants much more than that, and as far as I'm concerned, she deserves it. Apparently, at least one guy did Alanis wrong at some point; some women get mad, some get even - Alanis has the strength to do both. I for one love a strong woman.

To many, Alanis burst on the scene from out of nowhere with this mega-smash CD. I have one of her first two albums, so I know better. As a teenager, Alanis actually found stardom in Canada singing, of all things, bubble gum pop. I know - it's hard to believe. I don't think any artist has ever undergone such a radical transformation as Alanis did from her teen albums to Jagged Little Pill.

Do I even need to talk about the songs? Were any of these tracks not smash hit singles? It all started with You Oughta Know, which was a revelation of sorts to many radio listeners. Harsh, angry, a little perverted, cursed with a couple of those silly bleeps radio stations just have to use - this was something different, and it just so happened to rock, as well. Alanis says everything all the good girls wronged by bad guys want to say but cannot to the heels in their lives. Right Through You comes in from the other direction to hit the target; Alanis, as a new woman of the 90s, is far too smart to fall for all the shuck and jive guys try to sell the ladies. She knows what guys want, but she is not about to let herself become nothing more than a conquest some jerk can brag to his friends about.

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern classic June 3 2006
Format:Audio CD
Morissette has lately proved that 'happy' singer-songwriters don't breed the most memorable albums. However, her angry, raw, jarring classic delivers exactly what it promises; with her gritty wailing voice, sad and sometimes desperate and pathetic breakup lyrics, grungy '90s' melodies and mellow, sad guitars, listening to this album IS like swallowing a 'jagged little pill'. There is no beating around the bush: 'Pill' is a brilliant album. The less-than-graceful Glen Ballard production, contributions from former candy-pop Morissette and the inherent anger that is heard as well as felt make for a brilliant listen. It's one of the few albums from the 90s that people will remember years from now, and more than a decade later, teens of today can still drown their anger with their jerk ex-boyfriends (and girlfriends) with 'Jagged Little Pill' on their ipod nanos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing May 14 2009
By Elvick TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
So amazing in fact, that most of the 1 star votes just flat out hate on her. No constructive information at all. I recommend reading them for a laugh. I know I got one. :3

What can I say, Alanis is great. She at the time wanted to express her anger and pain through some of the songs on the album. And it turned out great. She left that behind her after she made this album. Any one of her fans knows this.

Some of the best songs by her are on this album. Perfect, about parents who put unrealistic expectations on their children and try to live vicariously through them. The hidden acapella track 'Your House' [on track 13 near the end], about finding a letter to her boyfriend from another woman.

It's a remarkable disc. And it's great to go back to it and remember Alanis as she was in 1995. This CD is the start of her emotional journey, which you can follow throughout her albums. Which is why she makes the remarkable artist that she is.
