    Such Pretty Forks in the Road” arrives three months later than its originally scheduled May 1 debut.

    Track listing

    1. “Smiling”

    Giving it a listen now. Thanks, I forgot it was being released.

    Ablaze is beautiful. I liked the first two singles, and I think Reasons I Drink is her best song in ages.

    About her Grammy chances, who knows. She’s been “campaigning” a lot…a lot of appearances in talk shows, performances…the album feels like a return to form so why not. It would be nice to see her getting a couple of noms.

    Man, I can’t stand Alanis Morrosette! I know so many people like her but her voice is just so unappealing to me. It sounds scratchy and dry. Hopefully her cans enjoy this album though.

    I love the new album. So glad she is back. I dont know if she has a shot for a return for Grammy noms, but she is certainly worthy. Great record.

    I do think this is her best album since Jagged Little Pill. She’s pulled back on the vocal affectations a bit. And the song-writing is passable, if mostly cliche. She doesn’t seem to be chasing chart success with bland, big chorus soft-rock any longer. So, that’s a good thing. The album is solid and I guess would be a treat for legit fans. I do feel like Alanis is a pop girl at heart. I would’ve loved for her to go down the dance-pop/electric-pop/art-pop route.

    Listen Idiot Awards Voters, give as many awards as you possibly can to these albums:

    Fiona Apple- Fetch the Bolt Cutters
    Haim- Women in Music Part lll
    Run the Jewels- Run the Jewels 4

    Ugh, this thread just reminded me that I was supposed to have been at her show with Garbage and Liz Phair at some point last month… Damn COVID.

    Ablaze is amazing. What a beautiful song.

    Alanis deserves some recognition for this album. SPFITR is one of the best albums of the year so far. Well done Alanis!

    But, is it a Rock album? or is it Alternative Music or Pop? Who knows.
