It's early 1997, your debut album has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide, you're an overnight sensation, a multi-Grammy award winning household name and expectations for a follow-up album have never been as high. So what do you do? Well, in the case of Alanis Morissette you pack your bags and take yourself off to India to seek out spiritual enlightenment - to 'find yourself' and come back refreshed. Yes, since that infamous and now legendary debut album "Jagged Little Pill" spoke the truth for a generation and spawned a million angst-ridden vixens, Alanis had to make an album that maintained her success and kept her alive in the public subconscious, didn't she? Well, maybe some people thought so, but she certainly didn't. To make an album as well-accepted on a social scale as Jagged Little Pill was going to be impossible, so Alanis laid down the law and, in the fall of 1998, unveiled "Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie" to the world. Typically, critics adored it but the public failed to agree. Yeah, so the album went to No.1 all over the world, but in the end only sold around 8 million copies worldwide. What is considered her most tragic album by the public is actually her greatest masterpiece by the diehard fans. I for one am in agreement of this album's genius.
The first single to be taken from the album was "Thank U." The song charted at No.5 in the UK in October 1998 and was a huge hit around the world. The confrontational lyrics were typical Morissette, but the light-hearted and somewhat forgiving lyrical matter was new. The anger that dominated her debut was traded in for relaxation and reflection on her sophomore. The video to the single featured a naked Alanis in one of the greatest music videos ever.

This was the first release Alanis made after her record-smashing album "Jagged Little Pill" sold so many copies that one Australian household in six owned a copy.
However, despite being seen as belonging to the singer/songwriter tradition, "Jagged Little Pill" betrayed such traditionas all through, sounding much more like the pseudo-macho posturers Australians - deprived of arty, feminine singer/songwriters by the unsuitable environment (sparse population, infertile soils, erratic rainfall) - have always lapped up insanely. The pompous production and bland anger of "Pill" was rooted in the work of Suzi Quatro or Pat Benatar - both tremendously more popular in Australia than in the US or Europe.
"Thank You" is a real attempt to show Morissette as a singer/songwriter, and is an advance on the pompous noise of "Jagged Little Pill" that thoroughly annoyed me in Year 12 back in 1995. The song is held together by a piano line and Alanis' voice is nothing like so annoying. Nonetheless, the song has far too little feeling to suggest Alanis has absorbed the knowledge of such soul sisters as Laura Nyro or Liz Fraser or folksingers like Sandy Denny or Maddy Prior or June Tabor.
The chorus, moreover, is by any standards tepid and airy in a bad kind of way, as if Alanis wants to absorb the fakery so often seen in Eastern religions as an escape from her Catholic background. The guitar and bass are placed so far back in the production as to give the impression the the arrangers have little idea what is required to convey the song's message.
An improvement, yes, but nowhere near enough to take her seriously.

"Thank U" Alanis May 22 1999
By mjmelly@excite.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Alanis Morissette is an artist with an extreme amount of talent and she shows it here with this fabulous 3-song single. The title track "Thank U," which can also be found on her new CD, is a stunning tribute to everything that she learned while taking a break from her hectic schedule. The two b-sides are a must listen. The angry but powerful "Pollyanna Flower" showcases that Alanis is exploring the new territory of wild guitar excursions. And the demo version of "Uninvited" is mesmerizing.

Maybe Morissette's Most Moving Masterpiece March 27 2004

The first single to be taken from the album was "Thank U." The song charted at No.5 in the UK in October 1998 and was a huge hit around the world. The confrontational lyrics were typical Morissette, but the light-hearted and somewhat forgiving lyrical matter was new. The anger that dominated her debut was traded in for relaxation and reflection on her sophomore. The video to the single featured a naked Alanis in one of the greatest music videos ever.
Thank U starts off with a simple and sparkling piano intro before Alanis starts singing, "How 'bout getting off of these antibiotics? How 'bout stopping eating when I'm full up? How 'bout them transparent dangling carrots? How 'bout that ever elusive kudo?" The lyrics here are really weird, but definitely make sense if you peek under the curtain of what Alanis is trying to say. She then glides into the chorus, "Thank you India, thank you terror, thank you disillusionment, thank you frailty, thank you consequence, thank you, thank you silence." Alanis then moves into the second verse, "How 'bout me not blaming you for everything? How 'bout me enjoying a moment for once? How 'bout how good it feels to finally forgive you? How 'bout grieving it all one at a time?" She then sings the chorus once more, before sliding into the best part of the song. She sings the spectacular bridge, "The moment I let go of it was the moment I got more than I could handle. The moment I jumped off of it was the moment I touched down." The song ducks down somewhat as she sings, "How 'bout no longer being masochistic? How 'bout remembering your divinity? How 'bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out? How 'bout not equating death with stopping?" Alanis then sings the chorus again and again before wailing the song out with her traditional yelp. The song slowly dies down and so ends another masterpiece from Alanis!
Thank U is perhaps Alanis Morissette's second most-loved song ever after the anthemic "Ironic" for the Jagged Little Pill album. The lyrics on this single are superb, and they really provoke an exploration of Alanis mind. We get to see what's going on inside her brain, like most of the songs on Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie. Pick a copy of this up today! Alanis rules, and you know it!

You're stupid to NOT get this. Feb. 18 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Even if you aren't very fond of Thank U, you should get this. Even if you already have the SFIJ import w/ the Uninvited demo you should get this. Why? Pollyana Flower is the best b-side around. Instead of a live cut like those on the JLP singles, this is an amazing studio recording that was almost put on SFIJ, but didn't make the final cut.

Pollyanna Flower Is A Gem March 28 2001
By lost_in_space82 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you're an Alanis Morissette fan, get this single. Not only do you get a nice demo version of Uninvited but you get the haunting an somewhat Jagged Little Pill like Pollyanna Flower. A must for Alanis maniacs!
