By far Jane's Addiction's best album, Ritual De Lo Habitual is chock full of songs that are both catchy and experimental. The singles "Stop" and "Been Caught Stealing" are good examples; "No One's Leaving" has a nice funk edge with some busy guitar work, and "Ain't No Right" and "Obvious" are strong as well. Unfortunately, "Three Days" and "Then She Did . . ." are overlong and get bogged down well short of halfway through, but the album finishes strongly with "Of Course" and "Classic Girl". Jane's Addiction's funk-punk-rock mix is appealing, and never more so than on this album. --Genevieve Williams

What's most impressive about "Ritual de lo Habitual" is that its nine tracks are basically split into two different, if equally great, albums. The album starts out with five hard-driving rock songs with a psychedelic feel, equal measures explosive, trippy, and funky. "No One's Leaving" and "Been Caught Stealing" are the obvious standouts among this first batch of songs, but each one displays the band's own mix of manic, frenetic energy; intricate songwriting; and astounding technical skill.Read more ›
That said, if you're looking for a fun album, look no further than this. I gave it 5 stars despite not really liking "Of Course" so that really tells you something. This is also a better place to start than Nothing's Shocking with the more catchy tunes in "Stop" and "Been Caught Stealing." "Stop" being my favorite song on the album. The aforementioned epics are not far behind in my book. Just a different perspective for you, the consumer.
Often times, classical music is so artistic that it insights visions and colors (timbre). Very rarely does Rock-n-Roll reach this level of artistic achievement. Following Jane's evolution from the raw, unbridled energy of their self-titled live album to the energy/art mix of Nothing's Shocking was exciting. It could have only been topped off with an amazingly artistic, yet hard-biting sound as Ritual de lo Habitual delivers.
Three Days is interwoven with dreamy, yet unexplainably heavy guitar work that only Dave Navarro could have pulled off with his unique style. Then She Did is an epic piece of work that defies classification.
The songs are never formulaic (possibly with the exception of Been Caught Stealing), and are a pure treat for fans of artistic music and instrumentation.
Jane's will show themselves to be one of the most influential Rock bands of the 90's and beyond. Give a lot of credit to a band that broke through the monotony of 80's pop to create a new style that many bands have tried and will continue to try to model for many years to come - truly revolutionary!
5 stars is not enough for this album!

This is it, right here. To anyone who holds that "rock achieved perfection in the 70's", you'd do good to check these guys out. Read morePublished on May 25 2004 by Chris
Sadly enough, I didn't get into this band until last year, when a friend of mine had introduced me to them. I had first listened to this while I was stoned. Read morePublished on Nov. 30 2003
