Alanis Morissette – Jagged Little Pill

03-Aug-18

★★★★★ = Classic, essential listening What’s it sound like? The best of 90s radio alt rock. Thoughts A very important record to me, I could not stop listening to this when it came out in the summer of 1995. I know I wasn’t alone cause it was played constantly on the radio. It’s an important […]

The bossa nova instrumentation is distinct, I can’t say I’ve heard much else like this 30+ years later. More Info: https://www.discogs.com/Everything-But-The-Girl-Eden/release/372059 Listen!
