This review is from: Nothing's Shocking (Audio CD)
Janes Addiction are a well kept secret.....you find out about them somehow and they never leave you. I remember my mates cousin bringing this cassette to my house. We were messing around but I was struck by the sheer power of 'summertime rolls'......the softest song the record. It went around my head for ages... It was a few years later that I was in Tower Records and it popped into my head..I found the CD and it all came flooding back...
This is one of those albums that induce flashbacks to what you were doing when you listened to it the first 20 times.....it would be easy to say '5 stars ...just buy it' because it is that good but there is someone else about it because it didnt sell 10 million copies but yet feels as if it should have done. From the softness of summertime rolls to the harshness of 'Ted..just admit it'. from the funk of 'standing in the shower' to the in your face ear splitting crescendos of 'mountain song'... this album has it all.
Every song exudes power of sorts............
If you haven't sampled Janes Addiction or if you are looking to stray from mainstream rock and impress your mates..then is the record for you.....dont be scared. Also you will find a Janes Addiction fan were you least expect it...
