Now is the Time - 1992 MCA
Already from the very first notes of the opening track I knew this was something completely different from Alanis' later albums. This was main-stream pop-music sounding as if it was recorded in the 1980's; not unlike the sound of Laura Branigan. Impeccably produced and Alanis' voice sounds great, so if you are a fan of Laura Branigan or maybe even Mariah Carey, there is a good chance you will like this album also.
If a few tracks should be pulled out, it must be "The Time of Your Life" which has a harder beat than most of the others, and the song shows in glimpses that this is actually Alanis singing, though I don't think I would have guessed if I did not know. "No Apologies" is a fine ballad, but my guess is that most Alanis Morissette fans will be disappointed with this album.
