iTunes Editors’ Notes

The albums from the woman who became a superstar with “You Oughta Know” have become intense confessionals where it’s more like a matter of you have to know. Morissette’s psyche twists and turns like her murderous grammar, making for uncomfortably personal yet riveting listening. “Straitjacket” works as a dressing down of an inattentive lover (“Talking with you’s like talking to a sieve that can’t hear me”) except Morissette’s the one who ends up losing her grip. Producer and co-writer Guy Sigsworth, noted for his work with Bjork, window dresses these tunes with extra beats, strings (“Torch”), tabla (“Citizens of the World”), and vocal manipulations, transforming Morissette’s delivery into a transmission from outer space. This otherworldly charm sweetens “Giggling Again for No Reason,” one of the album’s pure expressions of momentary joy. Elsewhere, it’s a frightening amount of stress for one woman, from “Moratorium,” where she declares, “I declare a moratorium on things relationship,” to “Tapes,” which recounts the unsteady voices in her head. The album plays as much as a therapy session as a piece of music. Intriguing to say the least.

Customer Reviews

Alanis's Flavors

I was so excited to hear Alanis was coming out with a new album. I waited patiently. We all knew it was coming. She split with her fiance, Ryan Reynolds. Oh the heartbreak. Writing must be coming soon. We all missed Alanis. It'd been 4 years since So-Called Chaos was released. And it confused us all. Where was her temper? The rage? Oh, she was in love then. With Mr. Reynolds. So that album focused on the love. So this one must be opposite, yes? Songs about an ended relationship? That's exaclty what this album is all about. There are all sorts of experimentations going on with this album. I was wondering what it would be like since she collabortated with Guy Sigsworth. Wondering how Alanis could pull off electronic. Can she do it? Yes. She can. All these songs are different from each other, yet they all mold together to make the perfect album. 1.Citizen of the Planet - 10/10; starts out Middle Eastern style, then winds up with crunching hard guitars in the choruses. 2.Underneath - 10/10; has a great beat. An uplifting song. Has that kind of summer feel to it. Makes you want to bob your head to the beat. 3.Straitjacket - 9/10; here is the Alanis we've waited for since Jagged Little Pill/Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie. Here she is. The rage-filled Canadian we all love. She's cutting up Mr. Reynolds here. Very electronic. 4.Versions of Violence - 10/10; oh yes. Another electronic song. Very electronic. Strings are heard in the back during the chorus. Great song. I love the way she sings the verses deep. 5.Not As We - 10/10; classic Alanis. A piano-driven ballad. That's all. Piano. No fancy machines here. Beautiful. Raw. Emotional. 6.In Praise of the Vulnerable Man - 8/10; finally Alanis looks to the good parts of a man. She's looking back at her past relationship with Ryan. 7.Moratorium - 9/10; love this song. It has a distant, far away sound to it. Nice beat. Its about putting an end to some things. 8.Torch - 10/10; one of my absolute favorites on the whole album. It is another ballad about looking at the end of a relationship and seeing all the things you miss. But the chorus is warm and welcoming and uplifting 9.Giggling Again for No Reason - 10/10; great. Another song that has a summer feel to it. I love this song. Makes you happy. 10.Tapes - 9/10; this song really makes you delve into your self-awareness. Alanis is looking into her mind and seeing all the bad things about her and how they circle and swarm and fill her thoughts. 11.Incomplete - 10/10; ironic. Incomplete, yet it completes the album. It is another summer-song. It's about searching for a life you have that is still incomplete. Even though it sounds sad, it is very uplifting. This is probably one of Alanis's best albums yet. It's what we all wanted after Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie. Buy this album.

The Evolution of Alanis . . .

After 4 years of absence, Alanis returns with a surprisingly good album. I have been waiting for this album to come out since last September. I have to say that i'm impressed with 'Flavors'. Alanis tackles a new sound with the help with Guy Sigsworth (responsible for Madonna's 'What it feels like for a Girl'). Despite the new sound like in 'Straitjacket', Alanis still retains her classic style such as on 'Not as We'. These songs are filled with raw emotion and personal lyrics that makes it easy to relate to them. There are also some songs that may relate to her breakup from Ryan Reynolds. For example, Moratorium tells of Alanis' desire to take a break from relationships ("I've never known freedom from intertwining"). Songs such as Citizen of the Planet and Versions of Violence show a darkish sound similar to tracks on 'Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie'. There are also tracks that lean a little more towards the pop/dance genre (Giggling). Alanis & Guy really experiment with different 'Flavors' to create this album and the songs really show this. What's also great about this album is that there are bonus tracks which are just as good as the songs that made the final cut. 'Limbo No More' is very emotional while 'On The Tequila' is a fun catchy song. Also check out '20/20', another bonus found on the 'Underneath' cd-single. It has a similar message as 'Moratorium'. Overall, this album is great. I can't stop listening to it. I highly recommend this to fans and new listeners. 'Flavors' has a fresh sound and much different from the last two albums. Her past albums still influence this album which makes it even better. Good job Alanis!

Buy the Deluxe Version instead

It has a few extra songs that will cost less if you buy that one altogether!

Alanis Morissette was one of the most unlikely stars of the mid-'90s.
