Alanis Morissette crashed into pop music's collective consciousness in the mid-1990s as a woman scorned, carrying loads of resentment along with her alt-pop leanings. Morissette's fourth studio album, SO-CALLED CHAOS, reveals that she has come a long way from the days of "You Oughta Know," thanks, in part, to the healing powers of love. In this case, actor Ryan Reynolds is the object of her affection, and Morissette embarks on an in-depth exploration of the various aspects of romance.
Backed by a band that includes former Jane's Addiction bassist Eric Avery, the Canadian singer-songwriter casts out a wide range of emotions. She goes from the playful wordplay of "Knees of My Bees," with its loops and sitar-like flourishes, to the more serious concept of forgiveness at the heart of the melancholy "This Grudge." Not surprisingly, introspection drives Morissette's creative engine. With it comes material leaving her in a vulnerable, confessional mode, whether she's acknowledging jealousy while telling her paramour otherwise on "Doth I Protest Too Much" or exploring a fear of weakness on "Spineless." These songs reveal a mature tone missing from her early outings, and mark another fine and eclectic album by the always-intriguing artist.

やはり1stに比べるとインパクトに欠ける感じがします。とは言え、前作に比べればいい感じに仕上がっています。”Eight Easy〜”や”Out Is〜””Excuses”, ”Knees〜”, “Everything”などが気に入っています。是非聞いてみて下さい。あと、CD Extraでスタジオライブ2曲が嬉しいです。

ラスト三曲がすばらしいと思う。「赦し」や「隷属」というテーマにも他のアーティストにはない彼女の哲学を感じるし、楽曲も練れている。ラストのeverythingで総てが解放されて、泣きました。

popで親しみやすい曲が多く、買って損なし。2nd,3rdと迷いが見られたが、吹っ切れた感じ。中年ロッカーの私が聴いても素晴らしい曲の連続。今まで突っ張ったところがあったが、今度は聴くものを受け入れてくれる懐の深さがある。私は、1stよりこちらを最高傑作と考える。
