Biography

On her new album Havoc and Bright Lights, Alanis Morissette distills her entire body of work into its closing track “Edge of Evolution.” “…we’re ready to push envelopes into full-blown consciousness,” she declares in the final verse. “The evolution of our consciousness can be such a lofty, overly heady, and, frankly, confusing conversation for ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Though the mainstream might have all but abandoned Alanis Morrissette since her mid-90s breakthrough as the MTV grunge generation’s Madonna, she has forged on with a handful of albums of a reasonably steely consistency, although even kindly ears would recognize her output since Jagged Little Pill as reduced strength versions of that celebrated album. Its slightly convoluted follow up, Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie, remains her most intriguing if long-winded work, and with her most recent record (2004’s So Called Chaos) more or less finding peace with itself--filing down the angsty internal dialogues and sounding almost content even at its loudest points--the future seemed to be heading on a downward spiral. But talk about an about turn. With Flavours Of Entanglement the bronco is very much bucking once more, often causing whiplash-inducing stylistic swerves. "Citizen Of The Planet" opens the album, erupting out of eastern strings and a sequenced underlay with blunt, compressed guitars and thumping beats, sweeping through desolate plains previously inhabited by nu metal fantasists Evanescence. The dark tension is upheld through the robotic techno of "Straightjacket" and dark string-laden drum ‘n’ bass of "Moratorium." Landing amid the lonely Tori Amos balladry of "Not As We," Texas-pop of "In Praise Of The Vulnerable Man," and the more typical Alanis fare of "Underneath," this is an often unsettlingly mixed bag achieving varying levels of success, but it is also probably her most emotionally satisfying work for a decade. -- James Berry

Product Description

The first studio album from Alanis
Morissette since 2004, Flavors Of
Entanglement fuses the organic and
the techno prompted by producer Guy
Sigsworth (Madonna, Björk). Incorporating
beats, loops and synthesizers,
the album was designed, says Morissette,
so listeners can dance your face
off. Balancing introspective confession
and delirious joy, the global and the
personal, Flavors Of Entanglement is
a tasty new musical feast from one of
pop's most intriguing artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Flavors' That Satisfy June 10, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The best thing about Alanis Morissette is that she wears her heart on her sleeve through her music, and new album "Flavors of Entanglement" is no exception. She realizes there is strength in vulnerability, and with that knowledge shares her growth as an individual as well as a musician.

The pearls of wisdom beyond her years typical of Morissette abound in this new collection, but thanks in large part to producer Guy Sigsworth these songs have more edge and grit than anything she's released since the '90s. These songs sway, caress, mesmerize and most definitely rock. Those seeking a return of the so-called "angry" Alanis from 1995's "Jagged Little Pill" will probably never come any closer to it than this new record, but this time around she is older and wiser, and the songs are stronger for it.

Morissette is able to be thoroughly autobiographical yet remain accessible. She will easily resonate here with those struggling to cope with death, whatever kind of death that may be. She has mentioned repeatedly in interviews hitting "rock bottom" upon demise of her engagement to actor Ryan Reynolds and how that informed "Flavors..." The album certainly reflects death - in this case, death of a relationship. Never hiding her bruises, she nevertheless moves forward toward the light at the end of the tunnel.

Rockers like the righteous "Citizen of the Planet" (My frontier is on an airplane/My prisons: homes for rehabilitating) and "Versions of Violence" rub shoulders easily with sunny melodies like "In Praise of the Vulnerable" and melancholy ballads like "Not As We," but despite the variety there are no particular standouts amid the album's slim 11 tracks, and that is a benefit here; "Flavors..." is thoroughly an album in the classic `70s sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars This pill is not so jagged June 14, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Along with everyone else I was a big fan of Alanis's major label debut album, "Jagged Little Pill" back when it was released. However because a co-worker felt the need to play the album non-stop for about three months the album became annoying. I don't think I've listened to it since and haven't paid attention to any of Alanis's follow-up albums. Then last week I heard her perform one of her new songs on Howard Stern's radio show and decided to give the new album a shot. This is a great album from start to finish. She has grown a lot since "Pill" and the combination of her lyrics and Guy Sigsworth's production are a match made in heaven. There isn't a weak track on the disc but the piano ballad "Not As We" is a stand out track for me. "Straitjacket", "Underneath", "Moratorium" they're all great. The album is loaded with hooks and much like "Jagged Little Pill" this is a disc you will play over and over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic. June 19, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Jagged Little Pill" is one of the most memorable CD's of all-time for me, and like many others, I have vivid memories of the summer of 1995 that are associated with the many brilliant songs and moods of that album.

While I enjoyed many of her songs since then, I was worried when she released the acoustic set of JLP a couple years back that she was going to fall back on the laurels of past success and never come back with something on the same level (creatively/musically) of that work.

Flavors of Entanglement put to rest those worries - this is just a fantastic, fantastic CD. Starting with the blistering beat of Citizen of The Planet and ending with the hopeful and forward-looking catchiness of Incomplete, the albums is indeed composed of many flavors and sounds, but reigning supreme on every track is Alanis' unique ability to create interesting lyrics and pronunciations and wrap them around great melodies. It is refreshing to see that perspective and wisdom have contributed to the evolution of both her approach to songwriting and performing, but her voice is still as simultaneously beautiful and haunting as ever.

You will not regret purchasing this CD at all, especially if you've been a fan of Alanis not only as an artist but as a poet and a person.

Just saw the track list (thanks), and after also reading the product description for this new CD to me it seems to be nothing like "So-Called Chaos", which is my second favorite album of her's next to "Jagged Little Pill".

I know what you mean. I went to both Wal-Mart and K-Mart and they didn't have it. So I had to go to FYE. If you have an FYE nearby or in your mall, I would strongly bet that they have it.
