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

5.0 out of 5 stars Pfft.... May 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
I make no appologies when I say that that was the worst editorial review I could have imagined. I couldn't help but take offense for Jane's Addiction when I read it. To begin with, I prefer Nothing's Shocking to Ritual. Keep in mind the editor said this is "by far" the best Jane's Addiction album. Then he goes ahead and takes a stab at the incredible duo of epics daringly placed smack in the center of the album, saying they are "overlong?" What's that supposed to mean? This possibly would get the nod over Nothing's Shocking if track 8 was something else, because it's not my cup of tea. That's not to say it's bad, just not my cup of tea. Oddly enough, the editor said that was a standout. Hmmm... anyway, so I take it as an insult to Jane's Addiction if he could say this is by far better than anything else they've put out and criticize a heavy portion of the album. (Dude, "Three Days" and "Then She Did" are 2/5 of the cd!)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Rock albums ever recorded April 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
The editorial reviewer must not have been paying attention!
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is when the worshipping began. Dec 15 2003
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
I must disagree with the editorial review. This is the best "Jane's Addiction" album, but not by far, and if he thinks "Three Days" is overlong and bogged down, I suppose he thinks the same of Led Zeppelins "Stairway To Heaven", and The Doors "The End". Anyway, this would be my pick for "Jane's" best, though "Nothing's Shocking" is almost as mindblowing. It starts ironically with "Stop", which if a powerful song, musically and lyrically. The next three all rock, and "Been Caught Stealing" is of course the most popular. Then side two (or track 6), begins with the moving epic "Three Days". It's delicate, and heavy, and amazing, all at the same time. "Then She Did" and "Of Course" are good, of course. And it closes with the beautiful "Classic Girl". To me, this album is the epitome of "alternative", and "Jane's Addiction" probably kick-started the movement more than most other bands did. Easily 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars The album that changed my life. Nov. 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
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. "Three Days" and "Then She Did..." haunted me. The next day, I had to listen. I only have the cassete (mostly cause i drive a lot and i wish to have a cassete more then a cd) and I would skip over "Three Days" a lot, my favorite song being "Then She Did..." Well, "Three Days" was an epic. It changed me when I first heard it. This whole album changed me. Now, when it comes down to Nothing's Shocking and Ritual De Lo Habitual, there is no better. They're both very different, very unique albums that explore different areas of the bands talents and experiments.
The whole album from start to finish is perfection. I have to sing to every song when I hear them. It's my favorite Rock album of the 90's. Nevermind and Ten has nothing on Ritual De Lo Habitual, and they never will. Jane's Addiction helped Alternative Rock evolve.
Before you praise Nirvana or Pearl Jam or anyone else for that matter, look back a bit and praise the ones who started it all...

If you listen to bands like Nickelback, Puddle Of Mudd, and Staind, chances are two things are the case: a), you're a complete lame-o and you need to stop letting mainstream radio tell you what to think, and b), you've never heard "Ritual de lo Habitual." This is yet another of those albums that I regret not having gotten a lot sooner. Long before the bands mentioned above were making the genre look bad with their manufactured angst and laughably tedious songs, Jane's addiction were playing music that made the term "alternative rock" mean something. If you've just heard the uber-catchy hit "Been Caught Stealing," you've only heard the beginning of what the guys achieved here, as this album displays virtually limitless amounts of talent and creativity. In the singular vocalist Perry Farrell and staggeringly underrated guitarist Dave Navarro, Jane's addiction were led by doubtless one of the great one-two punches of our time. Dave's searing riffs and blazing solos are the kind that get stuck in your head for days after you hear them, and Perry's demented wail remains distinctive and instantly recognizable to this day.
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.
