Album of the Day
Jagged Little Pill (Collector's Edition)
Alanis Morissette embarked on one of the most spectacular career reinventions in music history when she turned from the fluffy dance-pop of her first two (Canadian-only) albums to the ragingly cathartic JAGGED LITTLE PILL. Working with producer Glen Ballard in Los Angeles, Morissette's soul-baring songs burst with raw emotion, but there was also consummate craftsmanship in these recordings – the melodies and forceful arrangements of “You Oughta Know,” “Hand In My Pocket,” “Ironic” and “Head Over Feet” practically jumped out of the radio. By the time the smoke cleared, the Maverick release had gone multi-platinum (Billboard would certified it as the best-selling pop album of the decade) and picked up an Album Of The Year Grammy. A critical and commercial smash when original released - on this day in 1995 - JAGGED LITTLE PILL has lost none of its power.
