Alanis Morissette Should Have Stopped Making Music After Jagged Little Pill Was Released

Like scrunchies and Clarissa Explains It All, Alanis Morissette is an integral part of the '90s.

The Canadian singer/songwriter's enjoyed a solid eight-album career, but there's no denying that she peaked with 1995's seminal Jagged Little Pill. A more pop-minded Exile in Guyville or a grunge-lite update on Blood on the Tracks, it's a remarkable collection that's held up for 17 years, a Top 40 record packed with genuine human emotion.
