Oh wow, this and the Apollo performance a few days ago prove that her vocals are as amazing as ever! I'm so excited for the new album!

SHE IS PERFECT IN AND OUT. THE QUEEN IS BACK! Although I don't like these orchestrations directly (I'm more of a UNDER RUG SWEPT / FEAST ON SCRAPS / SO-CALLED CHAOS person), HER COMEBACK IS VITAL AS EVER and her voice in her prime and the sincerity crushes me… I love her like it's 1995 again. With that voice and those vibes in her face, her body and her being as a whole… She can scream SHIT SHIT SHIT for 4 minutes and I'm still gonna press repeat!

Also, as a gay man, I envy her sense of a schedule and the way she took a responsible break from the industry to have 3 kids and marry the hottest husband. Souleye is the juice and the kids are just like both of them – MAGIC!

What an amazing, distinctive, original and one of a kind voice.
I don't really like her music, but DAMN can she sing.
Not quite as good as a black woman but damn close. She even hits every note in her falsetto, which is amazing cuz I can't sing for shit.

Welcome back Alanis. Another amazing song. And how she is able to maintain her singing voice is beyond me. Tasty little drum fill by (I believe) Gary Novak at 1:36.
