When you talk about the biggest albums of the 90s, you certainly have to talk about 1995's Jagged Little Pill. Alanis Morissette, to my mind, came to represent a version of the new woman of the 90s, leaving no questions as to her feelings and, some might say, demands. Decades ago, Aretha wanted R-E-S-P-E-C-T, but Alanis wants much more than that, and as far as I'm concerned, she deserves it. Apparently, at least one guy did Alanis wrong at some point; some women get mad, some get even - Alanis has the strength to do both. I for one love a strong woman.

To many, Alanis burst on the scene from out of nowhere with this mega-smash CD. I have one of her first two albums, so I know better. As a teenager, Alanis actually found stardom in Canada singing, of all things, bubble gum pop. I know - it's hard to believe. I don't think any artist has ever undergone such a radical transformation as Alanis did from her teen albums to Jagged Little Pill.

Do I even need to talk about the songs? Were any of these tracks not smash hit singles? It all started with You Oughta Know, which was a revelation of sorts to many radio listeners. Harsh, angry, a little perverted, cursed with a couple of those silly bleeps radio stations just have to use - this was something different, and it just so happened to rock, as well. Alanis says everything all the good girls wronged by bad guys want to say but cannot to the heels in their lives. Right Through You comes in from the other direction to hit the target; Alanis, as a new woman of the 90s, is far too smart to fall for all the shuck and jive guys try to sell the ladies. She knows what guys want, but she is not about to let herself become nothing more than a conquest some jerk can brag to his friends about.

For those who were around back in the day, over the years "Jagged little pill" has gained some sort of iconic status, as one of that decade's most seminal albums, and arguably the most celebrated angst-ridden album of recent times. Quite deservingly so, because this 13-track set proved to be a landmark for the '90s generation, who crowned Alanis Morissette as the voice of an era, who explored and expressed the emotional wreckage of youth and femininity in such an arresting manner, that her personal experiences became universal, rendering this album a contemporary classic. To celebrate the 20 years since its first release, this new, limited to 30,000 copies worldwide, 4-disc set seems like an essential purchase, being a spectacular package that further enhances the appeal of the original record.

CD 1 features the original album, newly remastered, overseen by Glen Ballard, producer and co-writer of "Pill". CD 2 contains 10 previously unreleased demos, that are either cut material in consideration for the record, or songs written after its release, all recorded between 1994-1998 (none of these are demos of songs from the album). This is the one of the most interesting aspects of this anniversary edition, as some of these tracks are pretty great, and could have been potential album tracks. It is historically significant, too, as on here is also included the first song Morissette co-wrote with Glen Ballard, the album producer, allegedly within an hour of their first meeting back in 1994 ("The bottom line"). CD 3 contains the acoustic re-recording of "Pill", released in 2005 to celebrate the album's 10th anniversary.

An unfortunate axiom in music history is that rock music has been and perhaps always will be a male-dominated scene. That's not to say there haven't been any notable females in the history of rock music, but few of them were ever fully embraced. Then of course, there was Alanis Morissette. Her international debut "Jagged Little Pill" was released in 1995 to monumental success, earning the distinction of becoming one of the ten best-selling albums of all-time with over 30 million copies sold worldwide. Since then however, the album hasn't aged well due to public dissatisfaction with Morissette's follow-up albums, leading many to label "Pill" a fluke. Other detractors have condemned Morissette's lyrics and vocals and questioned whether or not she could ever be considered a legitimate rock musician. Though "Pill" does indeed have its flaws, it is still unquestionably one of the best rock albums to have ever been released. "The Dark Side of the Moon," "Hotel California," "Led Zeppelin IV," "Nevermind," "Back in Black," "The Wall," "Ten," "Exile on Main Street," and "Appetite for Destruction" are not immaculate by any standards but are still among some of history's most beloved rock albums. Each of them are considered pioneers in establishing rock music as groundbreaking, emotionally engaging music that told epic stories and appealed to millions upon millions of people over several generations. Though "Jagged Little Pill" may never earn the accolades it deserves, it belongs among the list of aforementioned albums as a true masterpiece. What makes it so remarkable is that it manages to run the gamut of emotions through the course of only twelve songs. Despite being pegged as an angry, bitter break-up album, it in fact, is overwhelmingly optimistic.Read more ›
