Alanis Morissette - So-Called Chaos (Maverick, 2004)

Alanis Morissette - So-Called Chaos
Oh, I'm Canada's stale solecist loser!

  1. "Solecist": For instance: "You with your penchant for spontaneous advents / For sticky and raspy, unearthed and then gone / You are a gift renaissance with a wink / With tendencies for conversations that raise bars." That's fine as far as it goes. However, we agree with Mrs. Amanda M'Kittrick Ros that "the trials of a tortured throng are naught when weighed in the balance of future anticipations. The living sometimes learn the touchy tricks of the traitor, the tardy, and the tempted; the dead have evaded the flighty earthly future, and form to swell the retinue of retired rights, the righteous school of the invisible, and the rebellious roar of raging nothing."
