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!
