My favorite tune: Havoc

Alanis has travelled so far from ‘the Canadian Debbie Gibson’, to alt-music angst queen, to this subdued, matured state. But she still can write decent listenable songs (with a lot of thank-yous in it).
Havoc and Bright Lights is a more emotionally levelled, less heartbreak album with similar concept and similar sound to Flavors of Entanglement, another ‘economical’ recording effort with programmed drum machine and synth electric guitars. It was a logical choice in the sales downtrend era back in 2008, and a very logical choice now four years later when Alanis is officialy not an A-list major label artist anymore. And economical certainly doesn’t mean crap.

My Rating: 6/10
