Jagged Little Pill
Jagged Little Pill
is the third studio album, and international debut, by Canadian singer Alanis Morissette, released on June 13, 1995 through Maverick. It was her first album to be released worldwide as her first two albums were released only in her native Canada. Morissette began work on the album after moving from her hometown, Ottawa, to Toronto; she made little progress until she traveled to Los Angeles, where she met producer Glen Ballard. Morissette and Ballard had an instant connection and began co-writing and experimenting with sounds. The experimentation resulted in an alternative rock album that takes influence from post-grunge and pop rock, and features guitars, keyboards, drum machines, and harmonica. The lyrics touch upon themes of aggression and unsuccessful relationships, while Ballard introduced a pop sensibility to Morissette's angst.[2] Jagged Little Pill

topped the charts in ten countries; with sales of over 33 million units worldwide, it is one of the best-selling albums of all time and made Morissette the first Canadian to achieve double diamond sales.[3] Jagged Little Pill

Background[edit] In 1991, MCA Records
MCA Records

released Morissette's debut studio album Alanis, which went Platinum in Canada.[8] Her second album Now Is the Time was a commercial failure, selling a little more than half the copies of her first album.[9][10] With her two-album deal complete, Morissette was left without a recording contract. In 1993, Morissette's publisher Leeds Levy at MCA Music Publishing introduced her to manager Scott Welch.[11] Welch told HitQuarters
HitQuarters
he was impressed by her "spectacular voice", her character and her lyrics. At the time she was still living with her parents in Ottawa. Together they decided it would be best for her career to move to Toronto
Toronto
and start writing with other people.[11] After graduating from high school, Morissette made the move.[9] Her publisher funded part of her development and when she met producer and songwriter Glen Ballard, he believed in her talent enough to let her use his studio.[9][11] The two wrote and recorded Morissette's first internationally released album, Jagged Little Pill, and by the spring of 1995, she had signed a deal with Maverick Records. According to Welch, every label they approached passed on Morissette apart from Maverick.[11] Recording[edit]

Jagged Little Pill

was recorded in Hollywood

after Morissette relocated there and met with Glen Ballard.

Morissette co-wrote the album solely with Glen Ballard, who also produced the album. The demo recording sessions started in 1994 at Ballard's home studio and included only Morissette and the producer, who recorded the songs as they were being written. Ballard provided the rough tracks, playing the guitars, keyboards, and programming drum machines, and Morissette played harmonica. The duo sought to write and record one song a day, in twelve- or sixteen-hour shifts, with minimal overdubbing later. All of Morissette's singing on the album respects that rule, each recorded in one or two takes. The tracks that were redone later in a professional studio used the original demo vocals. Ballard met Morissette in 1994 when his publishing company matched them up. According to Ballard, the connection was "instant," and within 30 minutes of meeting each other they had begun experimenting with different sounds in Ballard's home studio in San Fernando Valley, California.[12] Ballard also declared to Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone
that, "I just connected with her as a person, and, almost parenthetically, it was like 'Wow, you're 19?' She was so intelligent and ready to take a chance on doing something that might have no commercial application. Although there was some question about what she wanted to do musically, she knew what she didn't want to do, which was anything that wasn't authentic and from her heart."[13] The first track the pair wrote was "The Bottom Line," which was not included on the album's initial release, but was included on the album's 2015 re-release. The song was written in one hour, immediately after they met.[14] The album's most successful single "Ironic" was the third track to be written for the album. In an interview with Christopher Walsh of Billboard, Ballard explained how he and Morissette met, and how "Ironic" was written. He commented: "I'm telling you, within 15 minutes we were at it—just writing. 'Ironic' was the third song we wrote. Oh God, we were just having fun. I thought 'I don't know what this is—what genre it is—who knows? It's just good'."[15] The album's lead single, "You Oughta Know," contained guitar which was contributed by Dave Navarro
Dave Navarro
along with bass that was provided by Flea. Navarro and Flea created the song in the studio together and was written with a different instrumentation, the pair were then asked to re-write the music something Navarro described as being "A lot like a remix." Speaking about the song's conception Navarro said "The structure of the song was in place but there were no guide tracks, we just had the vocal to work from. It was just a good time and we basically jammed until we found something we were both happy with. Alanis was happy too."[16] The first song to be shown to A&R and record company people was "Perfect," with a simple arrangement containing only Morissette's vocals and Ballard's acoustic guitar. In 1995, around the time that Morissette penned a deal with Maverick Records, the duo took the demos to a studio and began working on full band arrangements for some tracks. Content[edit] Jagged Little Pill
Jagged Little Pill
was noted as being a departure from Morissette's previous releases, which predominantly featured dance-pop music. Unlike her previous albums Alanis and Now Is the Time, the album strayed from her typical dance and bubblegum pop. In contrast, this album is seen as a landmark in alternative rock. Lyrically, most of the songs were written by Morissette and Glen Ballard.[17] The album opens with "All I Really Want". The song features the use of a harmonica, swirly guitars and canned drums and is based in a grunge-pop genre, the song's lyrics talk about "intellectual intercourse" and a mental connection with another angry, frustrated, frightened, uncomfortable soul.[18] "You Oughta Know" features themes of "raw anger and frank portrayal of female sexuality".[18] "Perfect" is a pristine ballad, that talks about "pushy" parents, the following song "Hand In My Pocket" is a cataloging of contradictions set over fuzzy guitar and a '90s drum machine, the song also portrays a lighter side to Morissette, with lyrics that touch upon themes of her self-effacing and hopefulness side.[18] "Right Through You" is a grunge song with angry lyrics about sleazy record bosses who prey on female artists who they want to "Fine dine and sixty-nine" rather than actually supporting their musical careers, whilst "Forgiven" was compared to the work of Madonna, due to its Catholic undertones.[18] "You Learn" is a mid-tempo self-help rock song, the song features Morissette giving out advice; "Ditch the fear, open your heart, speak your mind, and when the going gets tough, walk around the house naked."[18] "Head Over Feet" is ballad that contains guitar and drum box backing, with plainspoken vocals, the song lyrically talks about Morissette being a "handful", and that she's not the type to get emotional.[18] "Mary Jane" is built over a ballad's tense, and ringing electric guitar, and hears Morissette tries to reassure a friend who's having a rough go of things.[18] "Ironic" is a pop rock song,[19] set in the time signature of common time, composed in a moderate tempo of eighty-two beats per minute.[20] The song's usage of the word "ironic" attracted media attention for an improper application of the term, because according to Jon Pareles of The New York Times, the song gives a distinct "unironic" sense in its implications.[21][22] According to the Oxford English Dictionary
Oxford English Dictionary
"irony" is "a figure of speech in which the intended meaning is the opposite of that expressed by the words used".[23] Thus, lyrics such as "It's like rain on your wedding day" and "A traffic jam when you're already late" are not ironic.[24] "Not the Doctor" features gnarlier guitars, and features acoustic strumming and languid drum loop with needle-sharp lyrics.[18] The final song "Wake Up" takes shape of a cry for help to an apathetic world.[25] Release and promotion[edit]

Following the success of the album, Morissette embarked on an 18-month tour.

Maverick Records released Jagged Little Pill
Jagged Little Pill
internationally in 1995. The album was expected only to sell enough for Morissette to make a follow-up, but the situation changed quickly when KROQ-FM, an influential Los Angeles modern rock radio station, began playing "You Oughta Know", the album's lead single.[26] The song instantly garnered attention for its scathing, explicit lyrics,[9] and a subsequent music video went into heavy rotation on MTV and MuchMusic. After the success of "You Oughta Know", the album's other hit singles helped send Jagged Little Pill to the top of the charts. "All I Really Want" and "Hand in My Pocket" followed, but the fourth U.S. single, "Ironic", became Morissette's biggest hit. "You Learn" and "Head over Feet", the fifth and sixth singles, respectively, kept Jagged Little Pill
Jagged Little Pill
(1995) in the top twenty on the Billboard 200
Billboard 200
albums chart for more than a year. Due to the success of the album, Morissette toured worldwide for a total of 18 months. A DVD and VHS
VHS
was released, under the title Jagged Little Pill, Live.[27] That had received positive reviews from music critics as well. The tour had spanned from different countries (which was eventually featured on the VHS) where she had travelled to Australia, New Zealand, Germany, United Kingdom, South America, Asia, United States
United States
and her native Canada.[28] It had won a Grammy Award
Grammy Award
for Best Long Form Music Video.[29] In 2005, Morissette re-released an acoustic version of the album, Jagged Little Pill

brand in an exclusive six-week deal that ended on July 26, 2005. For the duration of this partnership, music retailer HMV boycotted the sale of Morissette's entire catalogue in Canada.[30] The album was released on June 15, 2005, ten years to the day after the original United States

Jagged Little Pill
Jagged Little Pill
received generally positive reviews from music critics. Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Stephen Thomas Erlewine
from AllMusic gave it a very positive review, giving it four-and-a-half out of five stars. He mostly complimented the album's standout talent saying "It's remarkable that Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill
Jagged Little Pill
struck a sympathetic chord with millions of listeners, because it's so doggedly, determinedly insular." He concludes, "As slick as the music is, the lyrics are unvarnished and Morissette unflinchingly explores emotions so common, most people would be ashamed to articulate them. This doesn't make Jagged Little Pill
Jagged Little Pill
great, but it does make it a fascinating record, a phenomenon that's intensely personal."[2] Robert Christgau
Robert Christgau
gave it a B+ grade, mainly praising its thematic content: "she's happy to help 15 million girls of many ages stick a basic feminist truth in our faces: privileged phonies have identity problems too. Not to mention man problems."[33] David Browne of Entertainment Weekly
Entertainment Weekly
gave it a middling review, stating that the album "is [a hard] swallow. What sounds arresting on a single grows wearing over a full album. Producer-co-songwriter Glen Ballard's arrangements are clunky mixtures of alternative mood music and hammy arena rock, and the 21-year-old Morissette tends to wildly oversing every other line."[35] When listing the album at 45 on the "100 Best Albums of the Nineties", Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone
commented: "Jagged Little Pill is like a Nineties version of Carole King's Tapestry: a woman using her plain soft-rock voice to sift through the emotional wreckage of her youth, with enough heart and songcraft to make countless listeners feel the earth move".[41] Commercial performance[edit] Jagged Little Pill

Jagged Little Pill
as a significant musical inspiration, and opted to work with Morissette's frequent collaborator Ballard as a result. Perry stated, " Jagged Little Pill
Jagged Little Pill
was the most perfect female record ever made. There's a song for anyone on that record; I relate to all those songs. They're still so timeless."[63] Stage adaptation[edit] Main article: Jagged Little Pill

Notes[edit]

In the U.S., previous to December 5, 1998, songs were not allowed to appear on the main Billboard Hot 100
Billboard Hot 100
chart unless a physical single was issued. Maverick Records only physically released "Ironic" and "You Learn" in the American market, thus they were the only singles from Jagged Little Pill
Jagged Little Pill
to chart on the Hot 100. A Following Morissette's performance of "You Oughta Know" at the 38th Annual Grammy Awards, Maverick Records physically released the live version as a B-side to "You Learn", therefore the chart performance of the latter is often referred as "You Learn/You Oughta Know" as a double A-side single.

The lyrics of Alanis Morissette's UK top 11 (and US top five) hit Ironic describe a number of apparently ironic situations, each verse ending with the refrain 'Isn't it ironic?' To which the answer must be a polite but firm 'no', as the lyrics are in fact a succinct explanation of what irony isn't. How ironic.  ^ "Jagged Little Pill". G-pop.net.
