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

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.

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.

The first time I heard this CD it was like 1992 and a friend of mine played it in the car. He played "ted, just admit it." ...It was so different and wild I wasn't quite ready for it.
Well, thank God he played "Jane Says" for me, too, because I heard it and immediately had to have the CD. Well, after listening to the CD a few times through, I grew to adore "ted, just admit it" and the entire CD became my anthem for the 90's. It is one CD that I have to have in my collection. You have to listen to this CD more than once if you haven't experienced it to let it grow on you. My fav's are: "Ted", "Ocean Size", "Jane Says" and very fav is "Summertime Rolls".
I saw Jane in concert this past Saturday at a special show in Culver City, CA and it was so great to finally hear these guys live. They played "Summertime rolls", "Ocean Size", "ted, just admit it" and of course "jane says." It was absolute heaven on earth. They played four song off their new cd coming out jul 2003 and I can't wait for it, too. They totally still got it and I'm glad to get it from them!
On the "Ritual de lo Habitual" vs. "Nothing Shocking" argument, I love them both but I do rank Shocking a bit higher. I still couldn't live without, "stop", "classic girl" and "three days" from Ritual. It's very good, too. I gotta tell you to see "stop" in concert made me very happy, too.

how do you describe the best studio cd from the best art-metal band ever???... what words would do it justice???... hmmm... if you've never jumped out of an airplane or surfed a 15 foot wave - it's ok... just listen to this cd loud, b/c it will have the same effect - pure adrenaline. you will feel like you just got shot out of a cannon..., and you will truly start to believe you can fly... it's sick...
just be careful, b/c you need to know 2 things before listening to this: 1. it will take you about 5-10 full listens at high volume to "get it"... and 2. once you do, be careful... b/c you will start to sweat, shake, slobber, etc. when listening - i'm really not kidding - and old people will hate your guts for listening to this irreverant art, b/c it scares the hell out of them...
i love music, and i appreciate all kinds of music, from mellow to hard... and this cd is probably my FAVORITE cd of ALL TIME... the reason being is, it does not sound "dated" even to this day... as a matter of fact - i really don't know of anything more current in this genre that could even hold a candle to this masterpiece.(Nirvana, Tool, Korn, Deftones, Rage, RHCP, Pumpkins, Pixies - I love em' all, and they are all great in their own way, but to me - they don't compare to Jane's) buy it - you will start to worship at the altar of Jane's.... these guys truly are way ahead of their time - it really will change your life. EPIC cd...
