Alanis Morissette – Havoc and Bright Lights (2012)

A disappointing and surprisingly bland addition to Alanis Morissette’s otherwise strong discography, “Havoc and Bright Lights” feels like a near-anonymous dad-rock album as sung by a woman. There’s little to tie it to Morissette’s identity as a musician and songwriter, while her vocals are muted and underwhelming. Only the closing track “Edge of Evolution” shows what Morissette may have indented to accomplished with the overall album, and while it’s a great track it highlights the weak material that came before.
