Martha, I'd go for it if you want a solid rock record, I don't think you'll go wrong with it.

i first stumbled across jane's addiction back in 1987, when i saw them open for love and rockets at UC irvine. they had only been together about a year. they completely stole the show from L&R. their sound was like nothing i had ever heard, and perry farrell simply blew my mind as a front man. (during this particular show, he tore off his skirt about halfway through the set, and played the rest of the show naked from the waist down.)

i was hooked.

after the show, i went out and got their first first album, the XXX album. it's a live album, recorded at the roxy in 1987. i saw them again at the john anson ford theatre in april of 1989. by this time, nothing's shocking had already been released. it was an outdoor show, and the stage was full of candles and perry's dreads were blue, and they played most of the show acoustic, which again, blew my mind. my car got towed at that show and i didn't give a shit.

then they released ritual, and everything changed. (my dear HOSwill have to back me up on this one, he and i have been here before...) i heard been caught stealing, and saw the video, and it was like watching ken put barbie on the streets. that pure, raw quality that they had was gone. there were a few great songs on that album, but it even showed in their live show. it was over.

i saw them for the third, and final time, in 1991.

i would like to recommend kettlewhistle which captures perry farrell's brilliant interaction with a live audience.

enjoy, martha

jane's addiction died a long time ago. what appeared onstage over the last couple of years was nothing more than a corpse.

Bonosgirl- Can I just say how envious I am of you having seen JA three times!!!!!!! I unfortunately never got the chance to see them live- I was underage when they first toured here and then last year when they came out for the big day out, I had broken my foot and could not risk going to an all day festival with 30 000 other people who would probably crush my foot into a thousand broken pieces, needless to say I was very upset. But with that said, seeing them live last year would not of been as good as seeing them live during their heroin induced, smacked up early 90s days. But still the live dvd that comes with the strays limited edition shows some nice live footage of the big day out shows. And the kettlewhistle album is a good one and yeah blasting three days is the only way that song can be played, I just love the bit in that song where Perry screams, "erotic Jesuuuuuuuus, lays with his Marys!"

Yes, Nothings Shocking is awesome (probably my favourite Janes cd) this one has the best version of Jane Says on it and my other fave song on it would have to be 'standing in the shower thinking'- I just love that little lead riff that Navarro does about a third of the way into it
