Jagged Little Pill
Alanis Morissette calls a spade a spade. She wears her emotions on her sleeve, and tells you exactly what she is thinking. This emotional honesty, coupled with catchy melodies, make quite a unique pairing. "Jagged Little Pill" contains a few mega hits, namely "Hand in My Pocket" and "You Oughta Know". But its significance lies in how it propelled the 21 year old Morissette to the national stage, and catalyzed her multi-decade career, which continues to this day.
