    I was worried about her hitting the high notes but didn't have to, apparently.

    She's really kept her voice.

    She was looking great on Watch What Happens Live, or rather one of those clips they annoyingly chop each episode into on youtube.

    You Oughta Know really is special.

    Yeah when you strip it down it's got such a properly GOOD melody.

    Still streaming this pretty much everyday to be honest.

    Where is the limited edition numbered tequila-coloured 7" though (with an instrumental as the B-side)? We need SOMETHING till she comes back to save us all PROPERLY in May.

    MEGA pleased that “Ablaze” has made the track list. Loved the live version of that.

    That is great. Could she be about to release an actual good album again? :o

    Am I the only one hearing “Uninvited” in the verse melody?

    It's definitely her must Uninvited song since Uninvited. Which I am not complaining about!

    I love the outro so much, I wish it lasted longer. And her voice sounds SO much better than on Havoc. And the lyrics are next level Alanis.

    I'll never not hear "me, a notorious bottom" at the 1:29 mark (edit: I think she does actually sing that). I'm really here for Alanis right now.

    Havoc and Bright Lights was good. Flavors of Entanglement also. She hasn't had a great album in a while though.

    Havoc was ok. I'd say Flavors was great

    Oh I've been Alanissing OUT tonight. I've never heard Guardian before and blimey it's good. Only went for Miracles so far from the Havoc set and that was nice enough.

    Flavours was excellent: Giggling Again For No Reason is the most sublime thing she's ever done.

    So many videos I've never seen (they're not exactly her strong point - her Av Lav drag in an otherwise decent concept for the jangly gem Underneath for example).

    Sometimes the 'basic'ness of Woman Down! really works for me. In fact it really was missing that exclamation mark in the title.

    HOW VERY DARE YOU

    A bit RICH coming from an Alanis fan!

    I prefer Reasons I Drink to Smiling but they're both lovely.

    Yes I'm getting a hint of that and the whole uneasy/unsettling 'Uninvited' mood which, let's face it, is never a bad thing.

    So I see she's gone the old fashioned route of 'just' releasing it on vinyl and CD. No coloured vinyls or box sets. I wanted her to take all my money. :(

    Darling I think Madame X and her grabby ways have already seen to creating quite enough havoc with THOSE credit cards

    Smiling is a great song but I prefer the version from the musical. Much more my style vocally.

    Good video. I smiled when Ironic Alanis appeared. I think this is also the biggest I've seen her.

    She still had the pregnancy weight when she filmed this I imagine but I suspect she'll have shed most of it by the time the proper promo hits in May.

    great performance. i can't help thinking how taxing that song must be both vocally and emotionally.
