    To that, I guess Alanis would say something like;

    Pregnant or not.

    I never understood why some think her music is angry or "on the rag." Her angry songs, which don't seem like many to me, recount times when I think anyone would feel angry (break-ups, etc.). As far as sounding like she's having her period - what does that mean?

    I do have to admit that I've lost some of the love for her newer songs - but then when I hear others like TORCH, which takes a lot of balls to write and record, it renews some of my faith.

    I don't think I'd want an album centering around her child any more than I'd want one from Tori (Ribbons Undone - bleck!).

    I agree. She got pigeon-holed after JLP, and no one wants to admit that she has grown and matured away from that very immediate, less-mature emotional songwriting.

    I think from SFIJ on, her songs have been either upbeat and positive (Thank U, Giggling Again For No Reason, Everything) or introspective and melancholy (everything else, LOL)

    After you talked about Torch, I went and re-listened (It's been a while.) I forgot what an amazingly simple and gorgeous it is. Songs like that prove to me that her way of dealing with disappointment and disillusionment have changed a lot since '95.

    -Jacob.

    I don't think she's actually angry, nor did I use the words "on the rag", nor do I think the sound of angriness limits itself to her negative songs.

    Have you guys heard the bootleg from the recent Agape benefit concert? It's up on www.unprodigalalanis.com, and there's some video. She did rarities like Utopia, Everything, Offer, and the first ever performance of You Owe Me Nothing In Return.

    Utopia:


    Everything:


    Offer:

    Ha. She looks glowing and great, but I can't help but have flashbacks to this Alanis:



    Btw, she contributed a song to the film she's in. Radio Free Albermath or whatever it's called. The song is "Professional Torturer" and you can listen here: http://alanismorissette.info/viewtopic.php?t=50696

    It's recorded from inside a premier of the movie, but the quality is great. I personally think it's a fantastic song; great lyrics, her voice sounds gorgeous, and it's very SFIJ.
