So-Called Chaos finds one of music's most popular singer-songwriters coming to terms with who she is as an artist and a person. With a newfound maturity and life-affirming, positive perspective, Alanis Morissette crafts beauty out of chaos on one of the major new albums of the year.
It's been a long time in coming, but with So Called Chaos Alanis Morisette has finally produced a worthy follow up to her globe-conquering debut. Calmer and more focused, the songs exude a new, mature woman, firmly in control of her life. "I'm not threatened by every pair of legs you watch go by," she sings with Zen-like serenity on "I Doth Protest Too Much" (as if she'd have said that on Jagged Little Pill). Time mellows--leave the angst to Avril Lavigne.
Overexposure once made her fantastic voice grate, but now it's like welcoming back an old friend--that distinctive little warble, that softness it's her most valuable asset and the simple, clean production wisely allows it to breathe freely. Most of the songs follow a slow, quiet verse/loud sucker chorus pattern and there's nothing on here that rivals anything from her debut, but everybody (including herself) has accepted that now. The absence of a world-class co-songwriter plays a part, but it's a refreshing change to see no external involvement. Accept Morisette for what she is--a female singer/songwriter with an exceptional, original voice and you won't be disappointed. --Ben Johncock
J'ai reçu le CD à date, le seul problème c'est que toute les supports qui retiennent le milieu du CD étaient brisés. Read morePublished on Oct. 21 2012 by Marie
A short time ago she released "feast on scraps". Apparently she is still cleaning out her fridge and feeding us scraps. I love Alanis but this is just forgettable fodder. Read morePublished on Aug. 26 2004
Jagged Little Pill was great, but since then Alanis has just churned out three albums with nothing new to offer, little inspiration, and lyrics that aren't particularly poetic or... Read morePublished on July 19 2004 by Hugo Calendar
I've played the heck out of Alanis' former CDs. This new one just doesn't have the same appeal. Alanis is happy in her personal life, and I'm happy for her, but her music was... Read morePublished on July 15 2004 by Regina C. Salvati
I'm a fan of Alanis. My favorite was the much-malingned Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie. I wasn't thrilled with Under Rug Swept, but it was listenable. Read morePublished on July 12 2004 by EmBee
I've read most of the other reviews that talk about
this album, and I agree with the fact that this is a
very readio frienly album... Read more
This CD is alright...Alanis has obviously taken to the trend of glossy, polished studio recordings, with the likes of Avril Lavigne. Read morePublished on July 9 2004 by "sankronized"
Judging by the lyrics, someone has definitely answered Alanis's personal ad "21 Things I Want In A Lover", the opening track on "Under Rug Swept". Read morePublished on July 7 2004 by bobby
