> Cherished by some, still a hidden treasure

Here it is, the 1995 multi-platinum smash that made Alanis an alt-rock superstar and earned a perennial spot in all the major "Best Rock Albums of All Time" lists (including Rolling Stone's). This won five well-deserved Grammys: her hits "You Oughta Know," "Hand in My Pocket," "All I Really Want," and "Ironic". --- Inspired by Alanis Morissette’s, JAGGED LITTLE PILL brings to the stage the “humanly recognizable and magnificently staged story” (The Daily Beast) of the Healys, a suburban family whose serene Connecticut lives collide head-on with some of the most burning issues of today. Through explosive choreography and the raw power of an onstage band, JAGGED LITTLE PILL creates a spellbinding musical experience that lifts its audience from moments of quiet, tender intimacy to pure rock ‘n’ roll release. The result is an electric, fearless look at what it means to be alive in 21st century America and an urgent call for us to come together even as the world pushes us apart.

Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill is an iconic album that captivated the hearts and minds of millions upon its release in 1995. Its fusion of alternative rock, confessional songwriting, and Morissette's powerful vocals created an unforgettable musical experience. Now, as I sit here with the vinyl edition of this landmark album, it is an opportunity to delve even deeper into the raw emotion and authenticity that defines Jagged Little Pill. First and foremost, the vinyl format adds an extra layer of intimacy to the listening experience. As the needle gently caresses the grooves, each track unfolds with a warmth and richness that digital mediums often struggle to replicate. The analog sound quality enhances the album's raw energy, giving the songs a sense of immediacy and depth that grabs your attention from the first note. The opening track, "All I Really Want," sets the stage for what lies ahead. Morissette's unapologetic and deeply personal lyrics resonate in a profound way. The vinyl format amplifies the album's emotional intensity, allowing the listener to feel every ounce of Morissette's vulnerability and anger. Whether it's the explosive "You Oughta Know" or the introspective "Ironic," the vinyl pressing captures the nuance and power of each song, showcasing the full range of Morissette's artistry. One of the highlights of the vinyl edition is the way it encourages a more immersive experience. It's not just about listening to the music but also engaging with the album as a whole. The large album artwork, lyrics printed on the inner sleeve, and the physical act of flipping the record create a tactile connection that heightens the appreciation of Morissette's craftsmanship. It's an invitation to dive deep into the lyrics, explore the themes, and get lost in the ebb and flow of the album's narrative. Another noteworthy aspect is the vinyl's dynamic range. The instrumentals have a distinct presence, allowing the listener to appreciate the individual nuances of each instrument. From the jagged guitar riffs to the thunderous drums, the vinyl reveals the intricacies of the production, immersing you in the raw power of the band's performance. While Jagged Little Pill on vinyl is an exceptional experience, it is important to note that the album's original mastering quality plays a significant role. The vinyl pressing faithfully preserves the original production, ensuring that you are experiencing the album as intended by Morissette and her collaborators. This attention to detail ensures that the album's sonic landscape remains intact, taking you back to the '90s and allowing you to rediscover the magic of this groundbreaking release. Jagged Little Pill on vinyl is an absolute must-have for any fan of Alanis Morissette or music lovers in general. It is a journey of introspection, empowerment, and catharsis that transcends time. The vinyl edition elevates the listening experience, allowing the full emotional weight of Morissette's music to shine through. From the raw energy of her vocals to the pristine instrumentals, every aspect of this album is enhanced by the warmth and authenticity of vinyl. So, find a cozy spot, put the needle on the record, and let Jagged Little Pill transport you to a place of unfiltered emotion and musical brilliance.

Well, most people know about the music on the album. It has also been the basis for a Broadway musical to be, which had a run short-circuited by COVID-19. But this is about this pressing on vinyl. The mastering is from 2012 by a master at LP mastering, the famous Bernie Grundman (You'll see BG in the dead wax next the label. CB, initials representing the also great, Chris Bellman, can also be found on many LPs. Both are part of the Bernie Grundman Studios in California). Bernie is, indeed, one of the best in the business. If you see his name on the back of an LP, or 'BG' in the dead wax area, be rest assured it's about as good as that album can get on vinyl. And when you see mastering engineers such as Bernie Grundman, Chris Bellman, Kevin Gray, George Marino (RIP), George Horn, and a few others, you know that they took advantage of the vinyl medium for sound that is often better than the same album on CD. There are other factors involved in just how great a vinyl record will sound, such as where it was pressed (Rainbo and United are not so good, whereas QRP, RTI, Optimal, and Pallas are some of the best ones). The better the pressing plant, the quieter the vinyl, the better the quality control, and the overall better the record will sound. Regarding Jagged Little Pill, this record sounds terrific. Images are big, fleshed out, and present. The music is presented pretty dynamically, with a very good, 3-dimensional soundstage. The better your turntable, cartridge, and the rest of the system, the more it will be able to mine out of any LP. But this is a pretty impressive sounding record. A downside on my copy (and individual copies can certainly vary, from the individual pressing to the actual stamper from which the copy was pressed, meaning an issue might be endemic to many copies, but not all of them) is that there's sort of vinyl whoosh sound slightly present. It's not audible during the songs, but between songs, it's somewhat audible. It's not enough to ruin the experience by any means, but some copies of an album I might buy are practically dead quiet between songs, others may have some vinyl whoosh. There were no repetitive ticks or pops present on my copy, but that's not to say it may not be present on another. But this is a really good SOUNDING record. And that's apart from the songs, which are, for the most part excellent. It's an excellent alt-pop record.
