The half-life of Alanis Morissette

Interesting fact:  per Wikipedia, each of the four Alanis Morissette albums since Jagged Little Pill has sold fewer than half as many copies as the previous one.  That’s an impressive streak!  Can she do it again with her forthcoming August release?  I just listened to the new single and it seems possible.

Update:  Yep, she did it!

In case you think nobody liked Alanis Morissette after the first record, here’s a spirited and very long appreciation of Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie by Glenn McDonald of the wonderfully obsessive and now mostly defunct music blog The War Against Silence.  “Thank U” is better than you remember, if, by any chance, you remember it.
