Alanis Morissette :: Flavors of Entanglement

Alanis Morissette's fame grew from the angry, take-no-prisoner's style of Jagged Little Pill, but her last few albums have been more hit or miss. On Flavors of Entanglement, Morissette takes another run at the ugly side of relationships, more than likely born out of her very public break up with actor Ryan Reynolds. Unlike her previous albums, Flavors is heavily produced, and includes beats and loops more like a dance album than a standard pop album. Straitjacket is a great example of this beat driven synth-fest. Versions of Violence is similarly Euro-techno influenced. Some of the best songs though, are where Alanis returns to her simple piano ballad style such as in Not As We or Torch, which both feature Alanis' signature raw emotion. This album symbolizes the timely return of a music icon, and she doesn't disappoint.

Fun Facts

  • The album was produced by Guy Sigsworth who has worked with Madonna and Bjork in the past.
  • Alanis filled seven journals while writing this album.
  • In all, 25 songs were written for the album .
  • The Deluxe Edition Bonus Disc features five bonus tracks.
  • Hot Tracks

    Kerli :: Love is Dead

    Kerli is a platinum blonde Estonian Pop sensation with a healthy dash of emo style. The first single from Love is Dead is called Walking on Air, and has an insanely catchy melody and uses imaginative beats and chimes. She might describe herself as a creepy little girl, but being different and not apologizing for it will definitely win Kerli fans around the world. The title song, Love is Dead, is a dark rock song with an impressive symphony backing her crisp pop vocals. Creepshow is Kerli's coming out track that has a bit of Fergie's in-your-face pop style. With just a hint of an accent, Kerli will definitely get compared to Bjork, and like her, Kerli has a style all her own and a voice that demands to be heard.

    Fun Facts

  • The U.S. release has been pushed back to July 8th, 2008 but the album is available now in Canada.
  • Perez Hilton featured Kerli's video for Walking on Air on his website.
  • Kerli was invited to play for Island Def Jam Chairman L.A. Reid and he signed her on the spot.
  • Kerli wrote all of the lyrics on her album.
  • Hot Tracks

    Either SAO, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, or Day Break Illusion. The last two look like shows for little kids, considering all the main characters are girls but trust me, looks can be deceiving at first glance. Still watching Day Break Illusion.
