Alanis Morissette: Shepherd's Bush Empire, London
David Bennun, Mail On Sunday, June 2001
SAY WHAT YOU like about Alanis Morissette – and I intend to – there's no denying the girl can belt it out. Alone among the "Dear Diary" school of songstresses, which she herself spawned, Alanis can both write a tune and carry it without the aid of pack mules or a small team of Sherpas. In a modest-sized venue like this, the microphone is all but a formality.
