Commentary

bulletI really dug Alanis Morrissette's You Outta Know (#3) when it first came out, and it holds up well today.  But I think Alanis got too big and I really got sick of her and the follow-up songs from Jagged Little Pill.  Nevertheless still impressive work from a former child TV star.  How did she get Flea to play on this album?
bulletSublime made their first appearance with Date Rape (#6) which was a preview of what was to come.  Nice tune, and I enjoyed how you followed the story of the song.
