This is another level for Jane's Addiction, and they're opening doors for curious artists to follow just like they did nearly thirty years ago. Farrell says, "I love being able to escape my past even though my past was great. I just love the future even more."

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely under-rated 11 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
This more than any other captures the spirit and philosophy JA. You can marvel all you want at the large production (and undeniable brilliance) of Nothing's Shocking, and froth at the mouth for Ritual, but when the push comes to the. Well. What hasn't been said about this wee gem, simply hasn't been SAID - I'm disappointed to note (shame on you Music fans..). So I'll throw the old oar in if noone objects too much.

Contains great beauty. & I do not say that lightly. Perry's in the finest voice, and it feels like you're privvy to greatness all the way through. Obviously Jane Says is the finest moment on the album - listening to this version you know why Perry wrote the song, not why he recorded it (Nothing's Shocking), but buy this album for so much more than that. EVERY song is perfectly crafted, performed, & feisty (God bless 'em). The RS cover is better than the original and the VU is respectfully and artistically rendered. And the rest are just lovely.

If you're one of those people that appreciates real music and seeks it's centre without been TOLD how to find or perceive it, then make sure you don't miss out on this.

Long live JA and thanks for the memories.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the most brilliant CD's ever. 29 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was paralized the first time I ever listened to Jane's Addiction. There is nothing more to say. Only that it is a pity what they have done with their last album (kettle whistle). It is obvious they needed cash.

4.0 out of 5 stars bursting with the potential fulfilled on Nothing's Shocking 29 Aug 2002
By D. I. Javier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
the review calls the cover version of Sympathy for the Devil "dubious." dubious nothing. Perry Farrell makes a better devil than Mick Jagger any day. the segue from Rock 'n Roll to Sympathy might be the best moment on the album.
yes, it's a live performance, recorded at the Roxy in LA, I believe, but they did some studio overdubbing so that the sound quality does not suffer. besides... Jane's is, above all, a live band. their recordings are great, but live play is where they really deliver.
only two of the songs on this album are recorded on the studio albums (Pigs in Zen and Jane Says). there are some high-quality songs here that you need to hear to understand the full Jane's Addiction vibe. Whores and Trip Away, especially, are old-time fan favorites that the more discerning Jane's fan looks forward to at a live show. Chip Away, a raging, percussive exercise in drum thunder and spooky downtempo vocals, is the song they used to close the show during their 2001 tour, and that one brings down the house.
it's an interesting look into the band's raw and gritty club days. it's not as immediately accessible as their other work, but it certainly grows on you over time. this album won't have the broad appeal that the two later studio albums did, but it's a must-have for any Jane's fan. if you own Ritual de lo Habitual and Nothing's Shocking, and you really enjoyed them, pick this one up. if you don't own any Jane's, I'd definitely suggest you get Nothing's Shocking or Ritual first.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Album But Not A Masterpiece 29 Oct 2005
By Stephen B. Wright - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I discovered Jane's with their album Nothing's Shocking and it changed my life. I was a devout metalhead at that time and was a huge fan of Metallica( that was the glory days of Metallica). Jane's slowly but surely became my favorite band. I bought this album somtime around 1989 I believe. I love this album it is a really raw sounding record and it shows how powerful the band was at that time. The song that became my favorite and was the main reason I bought the album was the cover of Sympathy for the Devil. Jane's made that song seem very eerie more so than The Stones ever did. Jane's made me realize that music should make you experience the feelings and emotions in the songs. They turned me from a metalhead to an alternative fan for life. Maybe I am being too sentimental or just reacting like most people as they get older but I miss the way the bands were during the years of 1988 till about 1997. Music was fun to me then and I was always discovering new bands to listen to. I find myself going back to listen to my older cd's now and rediscovering all this great music now because I just don't see that many amazing new bands anymore.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Album tells you more than the "Editorial Review" 20 Nov 2005
By xodiaq - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Jane's Addiction had the gall and attitude to release their very first EP as a live album. That alone should tell you where this disc is coming from. Unlike what the Editorial would make you think, theres nothing punk about Janes, they've always been the red, raw underbelly of a bizarre experiment with Glam Rock and Psychedelia, and there is no better way to hear them than this live, no coverups or touch ups gem.

I personally tend to HATE live discs as they sound like that bunch of garbage the Hendrix estate has been putting out that were no more than cheap bootlegs, but this disc is nothing of the sort. The first few times I heard this, I had no clue it was live, I thought they were adding crowd sounds to give it a feel, and there isn't much of that. The performance is phenominal, and the mix is amazingly consistent for live disc.

If you love Janes and you don't have this one yet, buy it now. You can kick yourself later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strays, Huh? 14 Aug 2003
By Brian Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I understand that the new Jane's Album is fantastic for what it is...but ahh why the caveat? Live, Shocking and Ritual, that's why! Listen to this album to hear Jane's for what they truly were. The glory of down and dirty rock neo-punk, an orgy for the ears. It oozes a dirty sexuality that you fear but cannot ignore. This disk has it all. Ladies and Gentlemen this is it. The real thing. When you realize that this is recorded in 1986-1987 you will understand how ahead these guys really were. Bring
Back Eric Avery!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy ...! 1 July 2003
By Mark Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
We're all pushed out of the womb several times in life. The first when we enter this world (thanks mom!) The second push comes as a teenager you become aware of a world so vast, and so beyond your imagination that for a moment you are suspended in incomprehensible confusion and rage and devotion and ideas and it didn't matter if you were a maladjusted teen jerk-off or a hardcore punk, but a dreadded guy in a dress and big yellow micky mouse gloves is kissing his lead guitarist as sound and light and drop dead class A freak babes and an overwhelming sense of revolution bombs your brain and you realize that everything had suddenly changed forever. For hundreds of thousands of kids around the world in the late 80's, Janes was right there pushing and pulling us out of our wombs into new lives. And ... those mickey mouse gloves were freaky.
Some people were drawn to the genere-crashing sound. Tribal. Metal. Dub. Freaked out f'ed up echo wah solo madness. I was drawn to the poet warrior side of this band. "Chip Away" gets a little maligned in these reviews and it was by far the masterpiece on this record that pushed me out into this world for he second time. It was the crushing power of the drums (played on a mic'd up ice chest live) and the lyrics. God help us those lyrics.
I chip away
Cause I'm not ok
So I
I chip away
Poked a hole right into myself
And inside I found someone
Who said I was O.K.
Still I don't feel easy
On this tree
Among the blossoms
I am the thorn
Close my eyes to take up spare time
I wish I just
Could be where the crowd goes
With the crowd
They must be going somewhere
Up from the catacombs
I ran into the angel again
He took the high road
And I took the low road
We both were dirty faces
We both were dirty faces
I don't
I don't
I don't
Don't feel easy
I don't
I don't
I don't
Don't feel easy
Mad poet warriors. No one, now or then, wrote lyrics like that. Now the album sounds like a document of an era. Like a Son House album, an old Dylan record, or the Wailers at their prime. So much has passed since it's introduction that it now seems revolutionary for different reasons than it did at the time, but it's a revolution none the less. Props to mom for the first birth and Perry for the second. I've got to remember to send him a mother's day card.
