Our Top 10 Alanis Morissette Album Covers article takes a look at the albums covers of one of classic rock’s leading female rock and roll stars. Hands down, or maybe in your pocket, Alanis Morissette stands as one of most inspirational female rockers of the past twenty five years. As any big time Alanis Morissette fan remembers, Alanis Morissette’s first real rock album was released in 1995. Entitled Jagged Little Pill, the album turned Alanis Morissette into a household name with the help of the very in your face Alanis Morissette song “You Oughta Know.”
When fans first discovered Alanis Morissette in 1995, fans that dug deeper discovered that she had already released two CDs in Canada before Jagged Little Pill was released. They soon discovered in very disappointing fashion that those albums sounded nothing like the Alanis Morissette that they had discovered on her 1995 Jagged Little Pill album. Alanis Morissette and her record company have never re-released those two early albums and they have been completely ignored from Alanis Morissette as they really did not represent who she was as an artist. We will also ignore those albums on our Alanis Morissette album covers list also.
Album cover lists have always been one of our favorite types of articles that we compose here. We do it for the real fans who love to eat up everything an artist releases. Albums covers were such a big part of classic rock history, Even when vinyl surrendered to the CD format, the covers were still pretty important, just a bit smaller. Yet you could still find the album covers in larger formats on t-shirts and posters. Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill cover would become iconic as it was printed everywhere.
Our 10 Alanis Morissette Album Covers article took into consideration Alanis Morissette Album Covers from both her studio and live albums and even compilations. We wanted to present what we felt were the best covers that Alanis Morissette and her record company created to grace the covers of so many great Alanis Morissette Albums.
# 10 – Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie
We open up our Top 10 Alanis Morissette Album Covers List with the album cover for her follow up to Jagged Little Pill called Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie. This was one of the most highly anticipated albums of the 1990s. It’s an interesting cover that has always sort of captivated us while also making us want to brush our teeth more. The album was released in 1998. The Rolling Stones had their tongue, Alanis Morissette had her teeth. They both made great t-shirts.
# 9 – MTV Unplugged
Continuing with our Top 10 Alanis Morissette Album Covers List we move on to the live album entitled MTV Unplugged. For some reason, Alanis Morissette and her record company liked to add tons of type superimposed on some of her albums covers. Not sure why, but they did it a few times. Yet, the cover was pretty simple right down to her hairstyle as it seemed to try to define the stripped down unplugged experience. The album was released in 1999.
# 8 – Jagged Little Pill Acoustic
In the number eight spot on our Top 10 Alanis Morissette Album Covers List we present the album entitled Jagged Little Pill Acoustic. Just as the music on the album presented the stripped down version of her classic Jagged Little Pill record, the cover did the same by stripping away all the colors and leaving what mattered the most…..
# 7 – Havoc and Bright Lights
In the number seven position on our Top 10 Alanis Morissette Album Covers List is the Havoc and Bright Lights album cover. This one was sort of an outlier as it showed a long shot of Alanis Morissette in front of a sky that matched the color of her jacket. Not sure what they were trying to say with this cover, but we liked it anyway.
# 6 – So-Called Chaos
Placing in the number six spot on our Top 10 Alanis Morissette Album Covers List we present the beautiful album cover for the So-Called Chaos album. The So-Called Chaos album was released in 2004. Alanis Morissette just looks so ravishing on the cover. Her beauty is simply striking.
# 5 – Such Pretty Forks in the Road
At the halfway point on our Top 10 Alanis Morissette Album Covers List is the 70s glam style cover entitled Such Pretty Forks in the Road. The album was released in 2021 as its stands as the most recent Alanis Morissette Album. It was good to have a new Alanis Morissette Album since she had not released a studio album in over eight years. Just love this cover which had sort of a David Bowie vibe to it.
# 4 –Flavors of Entanglement
At the number four spot on our Top 10 Alanis Morissette Album Covers List we present the ravishing album cover for her Flavors of Entanglement CD. The album was released in 2008. This one was a bit dark, a little erie and just simply wondrous in a very artistic way.
# 3 – Feast on Scraps
Rocking along on our Top 10 Alanis Morissette Album Covers List we present the striking and very creative album cover for the Feast On Scraps album. This was a CD/ DVD combo release that featured a CD of unreleased tracks and a live concert DVD. The album was released in 2002.
# 2 – Jagged Little Pill
Just of the top spot on our Top 10 Alanis Morissette Album Covers List we present Alanis Morissette’s glorious debut album entitled Jagged Little Pill. It’s just such an iconic cover how could it not be this high up on the list. This cover just said so much in both of her expressions.The album was released in 1995.
# 1 – Under Rug Swept
We wrap up our Top 10 Alanis Morissette Album Covers List with the stunning album cover Under Rug Swept. We just love the colors that were used on this cover. The way Alanis Morissette is featured on the cover is fabulous. The way her hair is painted and engulfs the cover in a surreal type of way is just striking. Alanis Morissette looks bigger than life on this cover and that’s the way artists should appear on their work. The Under Rug Swept album was released in 2002.
