Editors’ Notes

As grand (and grandiose) as Nothing’s Shocking, Jane’s Addiction’s major-label debut seemed, its follow-up Ritual de lo Habitual outstripped it sonically and in its ambition. With “alternative music” and metal getting more and more happily acquainted, the quartet smashed together a meld that not only sounded right but was, just a year and change before the release of Nirvana’s Nevermind, very timely. Guitarist Dave Navarro divebombed through a near-claustrophobic mix with heavy riffage and squawling high-end solos. His vocal foil, Perry Farrell, staggered a line between pretension and self-knowing humor — “Been Caught Stealing” was hilarious with or without its petty-thievery video; “Ain’t No Right” insisted that there was likewise “no wrong,” but its greater message was “I am skin and bones, I am pointy nose/But it motherf-----’ makes me try!” Farrell went on to prove the relevance of his DIY message as Lollapalooza founder.

Customer Reviews

An Alternative Rock Masterpiece

This album is possibly one of the 3 most influential early Alternative rock albums, with the other two being Blood Sugar Sex Magik and Nevermind. This is back in a day where alternative rock was good. And Ritual has everything. Tracks 1 through 5 are upbeat and memorable whereas 6-9 are mezmorizing works of progressive rock. The epic second half of this cd is something that you can meditate to. The entire second half of the album makes up a great mini concept in itself. Everything in this album fits. Ritual De Lo Habitual is a classic that every alt. rock fan should own.

So So Sexy-Sweet

One of the most criminaly underrated albums of the 90's. How this doesn't get more recognition... it's perfect. no wasted tracks. no wasted seconds.

Memories

Possibly one of the most influential albums of all time for me.I grad high school in 1991 and entered college that year. this album along w/ NIN "pretty hate machine" and pearl jam self titled first album and EVERY album THE CURE ever made and the SUgarcubes"Lifes too good" changed my life.As much as i love the first 5 tracks, they pale in comparason to the last 4.The last 4(especially "three days" )define an era for me.Check out this album, you wont be disappointed.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Jane's Addiction were one of the most hotly pursued rock bands when they gained notice in Los Angeles in the mid-'80s, with record companies at their feet. Flamboyant frontman Perry Farrell, formerly of the band Psi Com, had an undeniable charisma and an interest in provocative art (he designed the band's album covers), and Jane's Addiction played a hybrid of rock music: metal with strains of punk, folk, and jazz. The quartet, comprised of Farrell, bassist Eric Avery, drummer Stephen Perkins, and...
