When i saw the title of this book i got really excited as everyone know's how much fighting goes on when Jane's record in the studio, even Trent Reznor(nine inch nails) was shocked by it when he produced studio versions of "Chip Away" and "Whores" for the ninja ep(those songs originally appeared as live versions on their self titled live album) that was released to coincide with their co-headling tour in 2009. The book is part of a series called "In The Studio" which has featured different acts.

The three studio albums are featured here "Nothings Shocking", "Ritual De Lo Habitual" and 2003's "Strays" that has Chris Chaney on bass as opposed to original member Eric Avery. It's all recycled material from magazine's and online as well as interviews the band have given so you're not going to learn anything you didn't already know, unless you are new to Jane's. the only interviews he gets are from producers Dave Jerden who produced the first two classic albums and Bob Ezrin who produced "Strays" and famously said he couldn't make through the second half of "Ritual De Lo Habitual" which is amazing when you consider what's on that album,songs such as Three Days, Then She Did, Of Course and classic Girl! his loss really.

As well as covering Jane's he also covers Perry Farrells Later work with Satellite Party he also covers their post Jane's Addiction work such as porno for Pyros and Dave Navarro's Deconstruction. Their is also a good few mistakes scattered throughout the book, some glaring one's in fact such as "Mountain song" being the opening song on "Nothing's Shocking" its not it's track 7, Up the Beach is the album opener.

If you are a big fan of Jane's Addiction and think this book is going to reveal new stuff you will be sadly disappointed, if you are only discovering Jane's Addiction you might find the book interesting for a bit of a back story, just don't take everything as fact.

HASH(0x935df150) out of 5 stars not a good book 13 Dec. 2010
By Joe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has one cool thing: Ronnie Champagne who was the recording engineer for the first two studio albums of Jane's is interviewed here by Jake Brown, he also works with Deconstruction. That's why the two stars.

But besides all the technical stuff which in the end is so complex if your not a musician, the author does not give you inside the studio stories like why Champagne end up playing bass on "Of Course" instead of Eric on Ritual.

The rest is forgettable cause the author just uses interviews from past magazines from the 80's and 90's and this early decade lacking a fresh angle, even Dave Jerden interviews don't add up much new info.

The book is supossed to be divided by records, but besides the technical stuff on Nothing's Shocking and Ritual, the other record reviews like Porno For Pyros two LP's or even Kettle Whistle is just comments and not inside the studio technical stories, so you don't have a link from chapter to chapter on the core of what the book is supossed to be about.

Besides "critic" mistakes like calling "Mountain Song" "Coming down the Mountain" on the back cover of the book!!or stating that Ritual is a 1991 record which everyone knows is from 1990, at least once inside the book.

So I would say Jake Brown does not know much of Jane's Addiction...if you read this book.

I would rather recommend Whores.....that's a really good Jane's Addiction book.
HASH(0x93d7d6e4) out of 5 stars Pure Janes Love 16 July 2015
By Cristian Ellauri - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is for people who grew up with Ritual and Nothing Shocking as pillars on their altars. Nothing compares to these artists in terms of the range of emotions and sheer courage in taking musical risks and being highly personal, all while being musically gifted. This book gives insight into the people who made these amazing records. Thank You Jake Brown!!!
HASH(0x935df3d8) out of 5 stars Not what I hoped for 12 Jun. 2012
By James B. Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was not really what I had hoped for. I expected in-depth examination and details of the process of recording the Jane's albums; instead I got some rehashed interviews and mostly the authors rambling fan-boy nonsense. The editing was terrible; it reads like some Junior High School-aged child's book report. Save your money on this one folks.
