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.
