Just give a listen to any record of hers from Jagged Little Pill to So-Called Chaos and you'll know why.

Flavors is definitely better than So-Called Chaos :mandown: and I personally prefer Havoc too. I know the first 2 (or 3) are too iconic but each one has its own peculiarity that makes it great imo

Flavors has its highs and lows - I absolutely love SCC and I don't get the hate it usually gets.

Love SCC as well. Flavors is what actually made me a fan but it does have lows I don't listen to.

Why are all us Fighters in here lol

dear god, you could have picked Spineless or Doth i protest Too much, but you picked  THIS GRUDGE???

 

blessings.  i will say the Vancouver Sessions version of it is actually pretty beautiful.  i just think the album version is too uptempo for the song to breathe.

 

 

SMILING is one of her all-time best.  just ripping my heart out with that pre-chorus, and serving that Uninvited/No ominous danger threaded with a sweet vulnerability.  epic.  she's really coming again with this album.

can't wait to hear studio Ablaze, and i'm almost positive Predator and Rest will have to be bonus tracks.  i'm boggled that neither made tracklist!

They're all A+ tbh. Excuses, Doth I Protest Too Much and This Grudge is my trinity.

I never managed to listen do Havoc in full. :rip: Guardian sounds like a jingle for a feet mosturizer ad

I hate how accurate this is :rip:

 

Spiral and Numb are good and I like Big Sur from the bonus tracks, and it picks up in the second half in general,  but boy the first 5 tracks are some clunkers.

What is this Flavor/Havoc hatred :chick3: both amazing records

Flavors is unwarranted!!! It's the album that truly pulled me from my depression.

This is the song that made me a fan all those years ago. I enjoy her and her artistry; I'm really looking forward to this upcoming album.

Havoc is her worst album since the mixtapes, but it's not bad. It's just not as good as her previous work.

 

I will not tolerate Flavors slander, though.

YES. This and "Havoc" deserve more acclaim. Also, I adore SCC. One of my faves from her tbh.

 

Really digging "Smiling" too! It really does harken back to old Alanis.

I wish someone would merge the two album threads so Alanis could have a semi smash album thread for her standards in this forum :-*

 

Anyway I hope she releases an official video

Smiling is such a great song :jonny: I'm really excited for Ablaze too, that 1-2 punch right at the beginning is fantastic. 

 

I definitely see this album being on par with FOE, perhaps even better. It seems she really put her heart into this one. Good stuff so far, and the cover is amazing!
