Both hugely successful albums for Alanis and Adele and IMO have some similarities on how it is about their ex lovers. Inspired by Born this way vs Femme Fatale and this http://pulsemusic.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=games&action=display&thread=115828

You Oughta Know Vs. Rolling In The Deep
Hand In My Pocket Vs. Someone Like You
Ironic Vs. Set Fire To The Rain - Bad match up, Ironic would've beaten any of the other Adele songs.
You Learn Vs. Rumour Has It
Head Over Feet Vs. Turning Tables

Adele's biggest songs are better than everything else but overall Alanis had a better album.

Jagged Little Pill is the business one of the albums you can play right through and every song is great. Shame none of Alanis other albums have come close . 21 is good too but I think it's success is way over blown compared with JLP

Too easy. I've just been listening to "You Learn" a lot lately. The chorus :hearts: and her falsetto's on "you *loo-oose* you learn". Beautiful :)

You can't compare those two records imo

Yes, it's hard because I've always liked Alanis but she has a few wretched songs, like Hand In My Pocket for me.

When I first heard Rolling In The Deep it was on a Canadian station that, obviously, plays a lot of Canadian artists and I thought I'd stumbled upon a gem that wouldn't be shoved down my throat. But that wasn't the case; Adele wasn't Canadian at all, she blew up like a nuclear bomb, she reached the saturation point with me very quickly and now I can't listen to any of her songs. That never happened with Alanis.

agree. Alanis defined a generation. I can't listen to that album without feeling everything I felt at that time. It's just one of those things.

I remember the joke at the time of "You Oughta Know" was "I bet Alanis gets asked out to a lot of movies" ;)

I'm really surprised by some of the responses here. Not sure how old everyone is but I was a teenager when Jagged Little Pill came out. I was a huge Alanis fan and went to her concert but I listen to these songs now and there's no emotional impact.

I don't think her or the album has aged very well. I'm not a big fan of Adele at all. But I think Adele's songs will have more staying power in the future than Alanis.

I look back on Whitney and Mariah songs from my teens with more emotions than Alanis. It was good but not that good.

Alanis is very different and incomparable in a way. But Rolling and Someone Like You are iconic beyond anything on Jagged.

To me, they can't be compared. Anyway, I preferred Adele's first album.

And how do you figure that? :lol: Jagged's singles are still remembered almost 20 years later.
