Huh, I didn't know that. I'm definitely curious to hear that ... although I'm not sure I'll like Perry's voice on two of my favorite songs.

Oh, and to be fair, I did kind of like "Stop" back in the day. It's the one song of theirs I remember liking at least somewhat.

It's also essential to hear another well-known track, Jane Says. It's live on the first album, and was re-recorded for Nothing's Shocking (featuring Perkins on the steel drum), which is this version:



And then there's my all-time favorite Jane's song, from the first album, a pretty little ditty called My Time, complete with harmonica!

I do have Ritual. Other than Been Caught Stealing which I love, I don't even remember much of the rest. It's high time I gave it another listen!

I actually prefer Porno For Pyros to Jane's Addiction. I have both Porno For Pyros albums and really like both.

Jane's was just okay to me. I didn't hate them. But I wasn't in shock and awe of them like everyone else.

The P4P albums were very underrated, especially Good God's Urge, but I can't really say they were better than the Jane's stuff.

Listening to Ritual right now after ages and.... I can't say I'm really feeling these songs except for Been Caught Stealing.

To me, he's one of those singers whose vocals continuously hover a mere inch away from being irritating, but never actually cross the line. So I don't find his singing a problem.

I've got Ritual de lo Habitual and Strays and enjoy them to various degrees, don't really care about the band enough to dig deeper into their catalogue.

My favorites are really the slower songs: Classic Girl, Then She Did, Of Course, and Obvious.

Three Days is impressive, but a little over the top. Stop is a great kick-off song, the next two don't really do it for me and are a bit dated. And I've never been a fan of Stealing.

I'd recommend Nothing's Shocking for a bit more consistency. Ted, Just Admit It is a great track, along with Jane Says, Ocean Size, Summertime Rolls, Had a Dad, Mountain Song, and Idiots Rule (which features Flea on trumpet!).

Just listened to this song on youtube a couple of times. (cannot find the official video but found some fan made video) I have to say I'm digging this tune a lot but the chorus is kinda stupid I agree.
