Product Description

Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blistering Rock Music, Classic and Ahead of Its Time Sept. 20 2006
By Brian Swatek - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
By the time Jane's Addiction had their "big hit" (_Ritual de lo Habitual_'s "Been Caught Stealing") their sound and style had already been adopted by so many early 90's "alternative" artists that it took their leadership of the Lollapalooza Festival to remind the public just how long they had been creating their unique blend of psychadelic-glam-art-metal. Moving from gentle to blistering rock within the span of seconds, Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, Eric Avery, and Stephen Perkins created a sound during their early live shows (represented on their self-titled first album) that was at once classic and ahead of its time.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Place to Start... Oct. 15 2006
By B. D. Holloway - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I always get a little bit suspicious when a band with such a small back catalog comes out with a "best of" album...and after the slapped together money spinners that were "Kettle Whistle" and "Live and Rare" have already stung your pocket you have good reason to...13 of the 19 songs that appear on Ritual De Lo Habitual and Nothing Shocking combined turn up on "Up form the Catacombs", but this is not a bad thing - these two albums are where their genius lie...and make this album a great place to start for newer fans of the band.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Jane's. Oct. 1 2005
By H3@+h - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This collection was to be released forever ago, but hey, it's here now. I'll admit I was a worshipper of the band back in the glory days of the group, and I credit them with the mainstreaming of alternative rock as much as the bands that actually got the credit (Nirvana/Pixies). Truth be known, this is actually a fairly accurate selection. It draws heavily from "Nothing's Shocking" and "Ritual De Lo Habitual", and rightly so. In my perfect world, I would drop the tracks "Ocean Size", "Ain't No Right", and "Superhero". Not that they're not good songs, but I think the tracks "So What", "True Nature", and a cover like "Ripple" would make this a more rounded set. Still, if you're looking for your first or only Jane's Addiction disc, this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jane's Addiction - 'Up From The Catacombs: The Best Of Jane's Addiction' (Rhino) Dec 27 2007
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A must-have collection of the best of Jane's Addiction's repertoire {although, as far as I'm concerned all their material is great}. They're like the 'kings of alternative hard rock'. Never could get enough of Perry Farrell and crew. Can't express just how much I got out of each and every track like "Stop!", "Ain't No Right", the dramatic "Had A Dad", Mtv's cult hit "Been Caught Stealing", their more recent "Just Because", "Pigs In Zen" and the live version of "Jane Says". Hope they maybe reunite again before too long. One of my all-time favorite bands. Essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Missing a song June 26 2014
By N. Matherly - Published on Amazon.com

It's a great compilation of Jane's Addiction songs. The track listing on the band website includes "Superhero" which my Amazon version does not. Otherwise, its awesome - I didn't have to dig out my old CD's to re-experience the very early 90's.
