Alanis Morissette - Jagged Little Pill Acoustic [2LP] (180 Gram Black Audiophile Vinyl, first time on vinyl, insert, import)
Morissette's third studio album, originally released in 1995, was her first international release. It became a commercial and critical success producing six singles including the Grammy nominated "Ironic".
Produced by Glen Ballard, the album charted successfully worldwide, peaking at number one in her native Canada for 24 weeks, as well as reaching number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 staying there for twelve non-consecutive weeks.
The album was awarded five Grammy Awards including the 1996 Grammy Award For Album of The Year, making her the youngest artist in history (at the time) to win that title at the age of 21. She also won Best Rock Album; her single "You Oughta Know" won two Grammys for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance and Best Rock Song. That same song was nominated for Song of the Year. She was also nominated that same year for Best New Artist.
"...a record that's surprisingly effective, an utterly fascinating exploration of a young woman's psyche. As slick as the music is, the lyrics are unvarnished and Morissette unflinchingly explores emotions so common, most people would be ashamed to articulate them... a fascinating record, a phenomenon that's intensely personal.

"...it's damn near flawless, from the hello-it's-me phone rage of "You Oughta Know" to the sisterly "You Learn." And right, Sherlock, "Ironic" isn't ironic — it's just Alanis speaking her piece about the perils of being a girl in a fickle-as-f**k world, singing like an acoustic guitar. Jagged Little Pill is like a Nineties version of Carole King's Tapestry: a woman using her plain soft-rock voice to sift through the emotional wreckage of her youth, with enough heart and songcraft to make countless listeners feel the earth move." - Rolling Stone
