Product Description


Though the songs aren't quite as good as those on Ritual De Lo Habitual, this album is much more consistent, with a heavy rock-funk-punk mix that's a pleasure to hear. The slower songs (especially "Summertime Rolls" and "Jane Says") work well, while the up-tempo material--in particular the closer "Pig's in Zen"--is both catchy and ambitious. It's a fine album overall, and if the band's Zeppelin-ward aspirations don't quite work, their music is still quite good in its own right. --Genevieve Williams END

5.0 out of 5 stars Before alternative was the norm April 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
Before alternative was the norm, there was a little band called Jane's Addiction. They had a loyal following, but were not by any means the in music of their day. I've heard Jane's compared to several bands. Some mention Zeppelin. You can definitely hear Zeppelin's influence in the guitar work at times, but not so much in the vocals. I've also heard some mention the Chili Peppers, but I don't hear that at all. All I can gather is that this idea came about because Dave Navarro was the Chili Pepper's guitarest on their underappreciated One Hot Minute, although even on that album there's little similarity to what you'd hear from Jane's. I guess it doesn't really matter who you compare them to, this is a band that can really rock. This album contains "Jane Says" which is one of the band's best known songs, but also many other gems. In their first few albums, Jane's Addiction had a tendency to really get experimental. Sometimes it pays off, other times it doesn't, but it always makes for interesting listening. Still, some people may never be able to get into a song like "Ted Just Admit It" no matter how hard they try. Others will find it an odd work of genius in it's own way. This album was released in 1989, but sounds nothing like the music of that era. This band has always had a style of their own that transcends what you'd expect from a certain time period of music. They always just sound like Jane's Addiction, and nothing else.

5.0 out of 5 stars better than RDLH April 15 2004
By Adam
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion I found this album to be better than ritual de lo habitual. I own both and are both very amazing. Nothing's Shocking has a very solid list of tracks and never let out where as RDLH is more experimental and tends to be drawn out at times by Perry's voice. Not to discriminate or offend anyone, but this is just how I feel. Janes definitely is still rockin even to this day. I suggest everyone buy Strays becuase it shows how good a band can be. It focuses more on environmental issues and solid alternative rock rather than being drawn out by vocals that can only be understood by ppl with artistic knowledge. Back to this review...very good, worth every penny and u will find urself repeatedly popping this cd into ur stereo or walkman.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm gonna kick tomorrow... Feb. 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
The good news is that Jane Bainter, the Perry/Casey associate whose addiction led to the band's name, did get and stay clean, and apparently she also eventually got to Spain, too.
Nothing's Shocking is as much a piece of Art as a cutting edge Thinking Person's Metal album. This is even reflected in the utterly haunting cover photo of a Perry Farrell sculpture of a pair of naked Siamese Twins with their heads on fire, sitting on a wicker chair.
As many of you will know, the 'Twins' were made from a papier mache body cast of Perry's then girlfriend, the remarkable Casey Niccoli, which was then duplicated and fused. Whatever its origins, it is an unforgettable image and naturally caused major controversy on the album's release.
Musically, Nothing's Shocking includes some of Jane's best work, although apparently the band wrote most of the material for their first three albums when they first got together.
The stunningly beautiful 'Jane Says' went on to become one of the most played Rock ballads of all time, along with U2's 'One' and Led Zeppelin's 'Thank You' and 'Stairway To Heaven'.
Yet this album also contains such powerhouse numbers as Ocean Size, Mountain Song and Pigs In Zen (Pigs, not on the original vinyl - not my UK copy, anyway) which can just about blow the doors off any competition you could name.
If I recall correctly, Ted Just Admit It was recorded while serial killer Ted Bundy was still around, and was all the more chilling because of that fact.
Rather than babble further, I would just ask you to give this rare work of genius a listen, and savor the breathtaking combination of Perry Farrell's unique and hypnotic vocals, Dave N's brilliantly inventive guitar work and as classic a collection of songs as you will ever get on one album.
'Just Because' from the new album is a reminder of the awesome power that the band can still wield, but this album right here, is the one that put them on the map.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic of My Generation Feb. 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
I can remember being 12 or 13 and reading about Jane's in Thrasher magazine and just knowing I had to have this album. Maybe it was the picture of Perry with his dreds swinging or maybe it was the picture of Dave looking so cool as he played the guitar, but as soon I could talk my mom into driving me to the store I bought this album and for the last 15 years it has been in constant rotation and one of my top ten of all time. "Summertime Rolls" is just an incredible song that always makes me think of those lazy summer days and "Had a Dad" is such a powerful song it makes me think every time I hear it. Who can't relate to "Standing in the Shower...Thinking." Please do yourself a favor and before you buy anything else buy this album. I know 15 years from now I will still be playing this one and I hope you are too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Continuing Fascination Dec 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
Although this record is not as good as Ritual De lo Habitual it still flippin rocks. This band just continued where it left of but got bigger commercialy with "jane says". The weird songs got weirder "ocean size" "standing in the shower". I wish they had more slower songs in addition to "summer rolls" but it was a great cd none the less.
