New Alanis album

Just browsed the first three pages here, surprised no one's talking about this yet. Picked the CD up last night and two thumbs WAY up. I think she gets better with each album. It's more along the lines of "Under Swept Rug" than her first two albums. I recall many people saying positive things about that album here, so I think you're gonna like this one.

I wasn't crazy about her last two albums, but I think it's pretty good as well. It has a "Jagged Little Pill" feel to it (at least to my ears).

I'm not thrilled about the slick, Pro Tool-y sound, but she always puts out quality stuff. This is no different.

I also enjoyed the little featurette on the CD... Though it doesn't top the documentary on the FEAST ON SCRAPS CD (where she breaks down into tears while writing a song), it's still a treat to take a peek into the Alanis world.

I think this is her best album since Jagged Little Pill. I really like the first song on the cd.

I picked it up and its a great cd.

At first, I didn't like the first song, 8 Easy Steps, but the more I listen to it, I really like it.

I'd have to say favorite track on the cd is Excuses.

I love track #4, "Doth I protest to much".

Excellent CD. Alanis is becoming one of the best songwriters out today. Her lyrics are just incredible. I personally think JLP is her worst album.

Agree. Alanis and Aimee Mann are the two best female songwriters going at the moment.

Yeah, I still listen to Supposed... and URS all the time, but I haven't put in JLP in years. She's definitely improved with time, though I think Supposed is her best.

I need to buy the new album though!

this is the 1st Alanis album I have picked up and I really like it, when I Was in europe at the end of April they were playing the video for everything in heavy rotation.

My favourite track is 'This Grudge'
