You can barely hear the tunes under the HAVOC that is the POTATO PRODUCTION though

You're gonna say this when I have the power to ban you???
Maybe it’s just a testament to the quality of Firebird and he actually means they’re both fabulous?

So many album titles now being thrown about in this thread I’m wondering when and how Fetch The Bolt Cutters will fit into the equation.

I was trying to soften the blow by saying something good about Firebird :D a bit of a cheap move I admit

I didn’t dislike SPFITR or anything, I just wish I hadn’t read everyone’s transcendental experiences on here beforehand

Diddy doesn't know diddly squat.

No idea if that relates to his last post, but the outburst from me has been long overdue and I'm already feeling at one with the dangling carrots.

So I think this is now probably my 3rd favourite Alanis album of all time.

I've got some superwomaning to do myself. The album was a revelation, but to me she was on a high from Flavours and still gliding in banshee fantasia freefall on the likes of the soabgly angst-relinquishing Guardian so she's never really had an artistic stumble if you ask me.

I thought I was reading this thread just now but it was actually the tail end of the Kylie Guest List topic and was terribly confused.

I wouldn’t say she’s been on top form with every album but all of them have enough quality stuff on them to be worthwhile. SFIJ is still my #1.

‘Jagged’ is on Sky Documentaries on Dec 18th 1.50am. I know Alanis ended up not endorsing this film but I’ll watch anyway particularly as reviews and people who have seen it aren’t quite sure what she finds so salacious about it but I guess it may become clear when I see it.

Yeah, I read someone from Canada saying it was really good and they thought it might be the early pop star days and how her parents look at that time that might be the issue for her as they couldn’t see what else would be an issue.

I don't know why (as in no specific reason) but I love her so much in this interview.

I've not seen this before - and I love it too. She's not normally like this in modern eras. She's more in a sort of JLP/SFIJ headspace here of being quite serious and taking herself seriously, but with added maturity/confidence to be almost a bit impatient with the questions (very unusual for her these days - she normally humours any questions). As a result it feels quite raw and I of course love that.

Exactly. I'm far more used to this Alanis in interviews:

How interesting that the HAVOC era interviews are very SFIJ/JLP in terms of persona which is all rather discordant with the content of the album :eyes:

I'm revisiting Havoc as a result, and I have to agree with @Fairytale of New Jark really. There are some boppettes on this album for sure. Maybe the production isn't even that bad really.

I randomly listened to "Everything" just now and feel it was a real misstep. It's just so... bland for her? I would've led with "Eight Easy Steps".

I agree as a stan but it actually did well for her I think.. and she was getting some good Ryan R d I guess, which may have clouded her judgement.
