Listening to an Alanis Morissette album has always been like reading her journal. Never one to hold her feelings back, Morissette gives you a glimpse into her heart and soul. Now, for some it is at times too much, too intimate, but for millions of others this is just what they are looking for. Many love her frankness and intimacy.
During the last little period Alanis has gone through the end of her engagement to Hollywood hunk and fellow Canadian Ryan Reynolds. Well, it is all here on "Flavors of Entanglement". The heartbreak and the ensuing emotions. Coupled with her personal lyrics are plenty of different stylistic differences. The music on the album changes from her typical rocker to a song with Eastern strings to techno beats on the next track. This constant changing of sound is done with varying levels of success. Some are better than others.
Despite her up and down career, you cannot fault this artist for sticking to what she loves. Alanis makes the kind of music that she wants to whether it sells or not. She remains accessible in her explorations of a myriad of emotions.
