  • I was in 6th grade when this released. I knew the lyrics but didn't realize what they meant until I heard the songs again a few years back. And I was like whoa.

  • My partner and I went to her first tour, I talked 2 girls in the lobby to trade seats with us. We ended up front row, so we took our old tickets ( they didn’t want theirs) out to the street to give them away, no one would take them. New tour selling for 250 to 1000 in T.O. CRAZY

  • She looks good with some weight and makeup! Jagged Little Pill was the best album from the grunge Era. Nothing touched it. Nothing. Excellent album. See Right Through is my fav. Now that's a rock in song.

  • Worst F_CKING record of all time! She sounds like she is getting jabbed with a hot f_cking nail through half of it! F_ck that sh_t! She is looking a little gaunt, must not be EATING enough?

  • There is a difference between having curves and being overweight. She looks good; but I’m so sick of all the P.C. crap! Overweight is fat! Curves are bone structure. Let’s call it what it is! We all gain a few pounds as we age, or find it more difficult to keep weight off; but it can be done! Granted, some people take meds or have a condition that may put weight on, but the majority of people don’t exercise or eat healthy. Just cutting out refined sugars and simple carbs go a long way, but some people don’t care. The majority of America wouldn’t know a thin person if it hit them in the face! The next time someone tells me to eat more; I think I’ll tell THEM to lose a few pounds!! I don’t make comments about fat people; so don’t shame me, either! Her weight shouldn’t even be a factor in the comments. Just enjoy her music!

  • I bet those record companies felt pretty freakin stupid! Same story with Lynyrd Skynyrd's first album. Joke is on the record execs who couldn't recognize these classics.

  • It's a good record but COME ON, they make it like it's the best thing since air. I'm sorry but the Gen X anger from back then being performed by a frumpy middle aged woman is SO lame....and turning it in a Broadway thing is more lame. Let sleeping dogs lie! I can't stand when they try to RECREATE the past.

  • Please, invite Travis to your tv show. Fran Healy, Neil Primrose, Dougie Payne and Jim Dunlop. They are the greatest band in the world in my opinion. Thanks a Lot!!!!!

  • These shows are designed for hype and in some way, they're useful (especially for truly gifted artists like Morissette). But if you're looking for an intellectual meeting of the minds. Not gonna happen. This is a C20th phenomenon. There was a time when these types of shows delved deeper. Pre-Letterman.
