MY REVIEW OF SUPPOSED FORMER INFATUATION JUNKIE

Following up an immensely popular debut album, Alanis Morissette's brand new album, interestingly entitled Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie , is a smashing sophomore with cool lyrics and killer bass. Alanis' sparkling voice makes the songs on SFIJ soar and fly away, and the lyrics are easy to remember and sing along with. Alanis' first album, Jagged Little Pill was a fun jaunt with lively, yet still slashing, lyrics, but SFIJ is an interesting excursion from Alanis' winsome stereotype. The first single from SFIJ, and the third track on the album, "Thank U," is an almost pretty song that a person would not expect to hear from an "up-and-at-'em" banging singer like Alanis. Other gems on this album include "Are You Still Mad" and "That I Would Be Good," a song reminiscent of Jagged Little Pill's "Ironic" or "Hand In My Pocket." Towards the end of "That I Would Be Good," Alanis emerges with her flute playing, which is almost a fluid extension of her own voice. Another really good song on this album would have to be "One," a song reminiscent of "All I Really Want" or even "You Oughtta Know" from JLP. "UR," a song drenched in bass and Alanis' high-pitched yet still soothing voice, boils over with piercing lyrics. The other songs on this album aren't exactly radio-material, but are definitely fun and interesting to listen to. What could be the next single after "Thank U"? It could be anything, from the afore-mentioned "Are You Still Mad" to a bass-stuffed, smashing song, "Can't Not." Although SFIJ does not have as many upbeat and smiling songs as JLP had, Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie does have it's own personality and thought-provoking vise. Definitely not a sophomore slump for Miss Morissette.
