Jane's Addiction rose to worldwide fame in the late '80s after a fierce bidding war for their talents with the brilliant Warner Bros. debut Nothing's Shocking. Mashing up rock, punk, folk, heavy metal, and psychedelia, the unpredictable Los Angeles band was desperate to turn the world on with their theatrical vision. Their follow-up album the sprawling 1990 tour de force Ritual de lo Habitual remains one of the genre's true masterpieces. Fronted by the charismatic Perry Farrell, the trailblazing quartet delivered a fiercely aggressive yet beautifully spacious sound that fueled the course of alt rock.

The tracks on this greatest hits package focus on the mainly on the studio tracks that were recorded in the years after those early club days, including many great cuts from their first studio album, _Nothing's Shocking_. Listening to a track like "Ocean Size," it's hard not to be drawn into their world for a few minutes. The music and lyrics create a complete space of their own--unique and like nothing else.
By the way, Dave Narravo is probably the best guitarist of his generation. Listen to all the influences in his playing! Funk, metal, psychedelia, prog, folk, jazz... it's insane!
