Alanis Morissette - Jagged Little Pill

Alanis Morissette - Jagged Little Pill

Alanis Morissette is the voice of my angst . . . and probably that of many others who have loved, lost and regretted. But it is her wicked lyrics which really strike a chord with me, putting words to complicated emotions and allowing them to finally drift away. An incredibly gifted vocalist who could have a second career as a therapist.

Wednesday evening , I headed off to Gene Simmons & Wolfgang Puck’s Rocktoberfest at LA Live not really knowing what to expect. I’d hoped to see Gene Simmons performing as well as Eric Dill who used to be the lead singer for the Click Five. It was a wonderful fun evening and while I didn’t see Simmons on stage, Eric totally rocked the house with his renditions of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing”, Radiohead’s “Creep” and (I think it’s by the Outfield) “Your Love”. He was backed by some of the all star band that Simmons put together for the event, Eric Dover/Guitar (Slash’s Snake Pit, Jellyfish), Brent Woods/Lead Guitar (played with Vince Neil), Michael Devin (Whitesnake and European sensation Steamroller), Matt Laug/Drummer (Alanis Morissette, Christina Aguilera, Richard Marx, etc.), Teddy Andreas/Keyboards (appeared with Carole King, Slash, Ziggy Marley, etc) and Big Jim Wheeler/Sax (toured with Kenny Loggins, Loggins and Messina, ABC, Slash’s Snake Pit). Eric just released his first solo single “War with the Wolves” just in time for Halloween. The full album I hear will be out in November. Watch the video - it’s sure to become a cult classic! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sd8zt0_YI0c Eric on iTunes at: http://bit.ly/EricDill

De Britse Imogen Heap brak met het geheel met vocoder opgenomen single Hide and Seek door, heeft een enorme online fanbase op Twitter, Facebook en Mypace en is nu terug met Ellipse, haar 3e CD en opvolger van Speak For Yourself (2005) en I Megaphone (1998). Na het poppy First Train Home lijkt Wait It Out de Hide & Seek van Ellipse. Muzikale progressie of ingeslagen andere wegen zijn er niet. Tamelijk onschuldig kabbelen de nummers voort (Little Bird, Swoon, Between Sheets), zoals dat ook bij de albums van A-Ha en Dido gebeurt. Earth grijpt er wat percussie bij en knipoogt vocaal naar Alanis Morissette, zoals ook op 2-1. In Tidal verschuift de instrumentatie van strijkers en drum'n'bass uit een doosje naar 80's synth arpeggio's, terwijl Heap in staccato doorzingt. Aha sprankelt ondanks de 'lala' frasen. Na het 2 minuten tussenspel The Fire op piano en het geluid van knapperend haardhout pakt de akoestische gitaar in Canvas de draad weer op. De ruimtelijke synth soundscapes doen hier aan landgenoten Note For A Child denken. Half Life schommelt je zachtjes naar het eind. Sommige tracks zijn goed doordacht, het geheel te mager voor een rijpingstijd van 3 jaar.

I have been anxiously awaiting Alanis' next album, but this single will tide me over until it is released. She is like that friend who will say what everyone else is afraid to mention . . . and you love her for finally getting out in the open. What will she say next ? Can't wait to hear.
