Alanis



Alanis

Postby jackalz » Tue Nov 12, 2002 2:02 pm

A couple of weeks ago I bought the 2002 CD of Alanis Morrissette, called Under Rug Swept. This music is just knocking me out. For me, her music is so much like Joni Mitchell. For one, she writes as a person who is happy with her self. So many other singers just aren’t happy unless they are in the arms of a soul mate. Though both Joni and Alanis see the beauty of connecting to someone spiritually and totally, but they also realize how special each individual is and that we don’t need any one else to be fulfilled.

Like in, Precious Illusions

“You’ll complete me right?
In the exact same way they never did
I’ll be happy right?
When your healing powers kick in
You’ll complete my right?
Then my life can finally begin
I’ll be worthy right?
Only when you realize the gem I am

But this won’t work now the way it once did
And I won’t keep it up even though I would love to”

She also writes of giving love without conditions in You Owe Me Nothing in Return.

The musical format for each song is a 4 or 5 minute song, it’s all about the lyrics, but still the music is absolutely captivating and emotional and progressive the way her vocals are used like an instrument. The vocals weave through the music uniquely with each phrase. It is amazing how many different voices she brings out, and each of them helping to tell the stories with such clarity.

Also, she still isn’t afraid to use explicit lyrics to make a point, like in Narcissus she writes… Dear momma’s boy, I know you had your butt licked by your mother.

She’s just such an open and honest in her writing, a lot like Joni, Peter Gabriel, and Jon Anderson in that respect.

<font color=red><font face='Papyrus'>I, too, have heard this release and consider it top notch! However, I think she may be trying to compensate for her overwhelming negativity still ringing from the echoes of <i>JAGGED LITTLE PILL</i>. She has definitely matured and I hope you're right in your observation, Jack. She has come a long way!</font id='Papyrus'></font id=red><img src=pix/icon_smokin.gif border=0 align=middle>

I loved her debut album. The "in your face" angry lyrics were right on then and now.

I just bought a new TV with built in DVD. I bought Yes Symphonic Live and Alanis from Navaho Nation. both CD's are cool Yes is electric symphonic and Alanis is all acoustic, and natural. It's all good.

Yes, she is very excellent, I like her very much, and I like her negative as well as her postive.

One

I am the biggest hypocrite
I've been undeniable jealous
I have been loud and pretentious
I have been utterly threatened
I've gotten candy for my self-interest
the sexy treadmill capitalist
heaven forbid I be criticized
heaven fordid I be ignored

I have abused my power forgive me
you mean we actually are all one
one one one one one one one

I've been out of reach and separatist
heaven forbid average (whatever average means)
I have compensated for my days
of powerlessness

I have abused my so-called power forgive me
you mean we actually all are one
one one one one one one one

did you just call her amazing?
surely we both can't be amazing!
and give up my hard earned status
as fabulous freak of nature

I have abused my power forgive me
you mean we actually are all one
one one one one one one one

always looked good on paper
sounded good in theory

I missed this post of yours, I must have been distracted with something else at the time.

For me, it's that she's never totally negative or angry or hate-filled and never blindly love-filled.

I was only a little surprised that you are open to her views, usually parents close off their mind to alot of the subjects Alanis addresses, or at least they don't admit to it. Anyway, IMO, you've proven consistently in your posts your willingness to appreciate honesty.

Jagged Little Pill is a fantastic album; my wife and I are both into it; the caustic nature of the songwriting is what makes the album so compelling to listen to! We still haven’t heard the new album yet, so I can’t comment, but Alanis is a singer I really like, and if I say so myself, my daughter does a cracking version of Ironic!

My daughter likes Alanis as well. I could never get into her music. Her voice just hurts my ears. I can't get past her voice.

She also has a new package out. It's the Under Rug Swept Tour on DVD, actually it's called the Toward Our Union Mended Tour (taken from an incredible song called I am a Man). It's done like the Jagged Little Pill Tour DVD, splices of moments captured, mixed with little innerviews. Also in the package is a new CD with the songs that didn't make the URS cut, called Feast on Scraps. I haven't got to the new CD yet, because the DVD is so good, I don't want to dilute it with leftover songs.
