9. Jagged Little Pill - Alanis Morissette
After a couple of albums leaning more into dance and pop tracks, Alanis Morissette opted to try a change of approach for her third album, Jagged Little Pill. Embracing alternative rock, the Canadian's decision to do just that paid dividends, with that 1995 album going onto win a whole host of awards and staggeringly sell over 33 million copies worldwide.
There was a reason for this ginormous success, of course, and that's because Jagged Little Pill is a flawless album full of quirky lyrics, catchy tunes, and a healthy splash of an attitude that has its roots in punk and grunge.
So popular did Alanis become with Jagged Little Pill, the album allowed her to release six of the record's main 12 songs as singles - those being You Oughta Know, Hand in My Pocket, Ironic, You Learn, Head Over Feet, and All I Really Want.
This was an album full of wit, wisdom and a sense of honesty that allowed listeners to feel as if Morissette was talking directly to them, baring her secrets, insecurities and words of sage advice for all to appreciate.
