Fast forward to a couple weeks ago when I sat in the Broadhurst Theatre completely, totally enthralled by the lyrics and the music of Jagged Little Pill. It was the first time ever that I bought a cast recording at the theater. I couldn't wait to get home and devour it over and over, which I have. It would be really easy just to say I love this recording and leave it at that. But that would do the recording and all involved a disservice.

Of course, I get some personal gratification from the inclusion of the dialogue that interrupts "Ironic." It brings back some rather fond (?) memories of years of arguing over it.
