Product Description


Cult heroes Jane's Addiction are the Grateful Dead for the should-I-be-a-punk-or-a-hippy-or-metal-head-or-just-get-high-and-become-one-with-the-music underground; so Kettle Whistle, the band's collection of live recordings, a few new songs, and B-sides from their two albums, would be as must-have for fans as all those Dead bootlegs--even if it sucked. This is definitely an album for the converted, and the extended jams and live ramblings would be hard to endure without a frame of reference. The electronic filler and robotic knob-twiddling on the new songs, "Kettle Whistle" and "So What," suggest that Jane's Addiction's breakup was well timed, but the demos and live cuts ooze the band's tremendous energy and chemistry. In the 1988 demo of "Ocean Size," Perry Farrell's charismatic, raspy howl mingling with Dave Navarro's screeching guitar sucks you into the music and sends you to an alternate groove-plane. --Megan O. Steintrager

4.0 out of 5 stars Good to add to your collection Nov. 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
Another live one from Jane's but I don't love it quite as much as their selt-titled live album. If you like Jane's, you will have heard most of these songs before. However, KETTLE WHISTLE and SLOW DIVERS within themselves make this album a must have. Besides, isn't fun to have like 4 different cds with JANE SAYS on it? (if you count Perry's REV album in addition to K.W, Nothings Shocking, and J.A's first album).

3.0 out of 5 stars Save Your Money - Wait for Strays July 10 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've been a Jane's fan for 14 years now, seen them live several times... Love them - my favorite band on earth. But... If you haven't bought this CD yet, let me save you from wasting your money. This is stuff we've all heard before as die-hard Jane's fans - nothing remarkable enough to want to hear it again. The new stuff on this CD is flat and boring. Not worth it in my opinion. I give it 3 stars for people who just want to collect. I bought it and still have it, but never listen to it. Rather hear the old stuff. Can't wait for Strays though - from what I've read, it's going to be incredible. Out July 22nd.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best, new, live, demos, etc. July 2 2003
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
Though it's not one, you could kind of look at this as a live "best of" album, with new songs. Nothing will ever match the quality of "Nothings Shocking" and "Ritual de lo Habitual", but this is still a great listen for old and new fans. The new songs are pretty good. "Kettle Whistle" is similar to "Then she did", and "So What" has kind of a "Stop" feel to it. "Slow Divers" and "My cats name is Maceo" are both ok, and it's cool to have "City" from the "Soul Kiss" video. The rest of it is just classic live material, some not as good as the originals, and some better. There's also alot of pictures in the sleeve, and a little band history from "Henry Rollins". I would highly suggest getting this, right after the first three records.

4.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Jane's addiction June 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
Well, I bought this CD for the beautiful song "Kettle whistle" with electronic elements then I was mesmerized by "Slow divers" tom-tom and guitar (simple song). Mostly other songs sound like Led Zeppelin.
I always hated the song "Been caught stealing" but this version is a lot better without the dog (I usually love to hear animal sound in songs but this one had no magic in it).
What attracted me the most on this album is the drum, tom-tom and funny noise they do with guitar pedals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good collection of previously unreleased material. March 10 2003
By Nate
Format:Audio CD
I'm a big Jane's fan. The "new" tracks aren't actually new at all.. I've heard them on bootlegs for years. However, this is a nice compilation for fans of JA that can't be bothered swapping bootlegs on the Internet.
Of course, this is not comprehensive. There are live songs and plenty of bizarre ramblings by Perry at his live gigs that aren't included here, but overall, it's a fine treatment.
My one major complaint is that they didn't include "LA Medley". By far my favorite unreleased track.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not entirely disposible, but almost... Feb. 2 2003
Format:Audio CD
Die-hard fans and critics alike lukewarmed to this album or else hated it with a passion. My respect for the band's genius during their heyday is tempered by the blatant barrel-scraping on the part of Warner Brothers.
This compilation of various live tracks (including one more from the LA Palladium; ridiculous for the fact they've got the whole show on tape, and should just go ahead and release the requisite 'live' album) and demos is interesting, but the nostalgia factor was (by the time of this release) quite low.
Reworking the studio tracks with Flea substituting for Eric Avery is a mistake, the two bassists having completely different styles of playing. Dave Navarro's foray with the RHCP was similarly unsuitable, although it did have its fan-base. In any event, "My Cat's Name Is Maceo" and "Slow Divers" aren't worth the tape they wasted in recording (and re-recording) them, although I for one would have liked to see the original band take a serious stab (in the studio) at "Kettle Whistle".
Perry and Warner Brothers: please take a note from Polydor (or Rhino) records and do the barrel-scraping right!

"Kettle Whistle", "My Cat's Name is Maceo", "So What!", and "Slow Divers" are tracks that I had never heard before. All four of them made buying this cd worth my money. While the title track has the only refined production quality on the entire cd, the others are purely raw Jane's Addiction.
The remaining tracks were already widespread on various bootlegs, nevertheless they are enjoyable despite the lack of quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars good live stuff and rarities Feb. 3 2002
Format:Audio CD
considering this album was put toghether by jane's addicion so many years after breaking up, the album sounds really good. The live songs are good and makes them wish you had seen them live when they were still toghether. The rarities are pretty interesting and are good to complete a jane's addcion's fan collection.
