Alanis Morissette: "Flavors Of Entanglement" review

No one ever envisioned Alanis Morissette penning the comfort guide to a harsh breakup, yet for electro-influenced "Flavors of Entanglement," her clear-eyed look back, inward and forward is with a poise borne of time's passing. She no longer prowls in search of vengeful hookups. After the finger-pointing "Straightjacket," the singer declares "a respite from the toils of liaison" on transcendent ambient trip "Moratorium." Chill-out track "Giggling Again for No Reason" gurgles with delicate happiness, and there's room for throbbing masterstroke "Versions of Violence," whose vibe compares to Delerium's "Silence." Every wall is torn down for vulnerable piano prayer "Not As We," but plenty of hope is left for the uplifting "Incomplete." Full of gratitude for being "ever unfolding, ever expanding, ever adventurous," Morissette's superb lyrics leave you cheering for her—and assured that she's going to be just fine.
