5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for Farrell fans!, 2 May 2004
This review is from: Kettle Whistle (Audio CD)
Kettle Whistle is exceptional as a document of the various facets of this unique and basically untouchable band! Like previous reviews have stated, Jane's fans will recognise much of what is on this disc, but what WILL surprise them is the differences in the specifics. For example, "Had a Dad" now comes complete with death-toll bell ringing during the chorus; "Oceansize" replaces the incendiary Navarro soloing with pure muscle; and "Jane Says" is a newer live version, similar to the performance on the "Three Days" DVD.
The new songs are more like a revelation of character and adventure than 5 star Jane's Addiction songs, which is to say they are still a great deal more interesting and socially aware than most stuff you'd read about in Kerrang or Q this week/month. "Kettle Whistle" has a beautiful are delicate chorus whilst elsewhere we get "My Cat's Name is Maceo" which is a gem of a throwaway tune about Perry's cat - "He's a little man in a cat's body" - with added saxaphone by James Brown's finest man Maceo Parker.
You do also get great littles snatches of Perry's unimpressed banter to a heckler; "I didn't think it would come to that. This guy really is a moron! We threw a Birkenstock at me! He doesn't even understand fashion!"
Classic! If you're a new fan I say grab this while you're checking out Nothing's Shocking.
