Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 312/500!
A classic seminal work and one of the most original and unique records of its era. Jane's Addiction's 1988 "Nothing Shocking"
successfully combined the sounds of the punk and post-punk musical genre. The
unique cover graphics and the music make this album a classic in every sense.
Like most great bands, it was not a single member whose contribution was
greater: Dave Navarro lights the album on fire with incredible guitar work, Eric
A's sturdy bass lines sit in a pocket and truly drive the band, Stephen Perkins
is one of rock's greatest and most powerful drummers, and, of course, - the
charismatic Perry Farrell's manic howls and unique voice alone would qualify
this album as one of the all-time greats as his voice whines, yells, and echoes
like no other and Farrell also provided some of the best lyrics that can be
found in alternative rock.
The album packs a sonic wallop and the performances often create a sense that is
could all fall apart at any second, creating a fantastic musical tension.
Such tracks as "Up the Beach", "Ocean Size", and one of alt-rock's greatest
anthems, "Mountain Song" explodes with a force. Also, "Ted, Just Admit
It..." and the haunting "Summertime Rolls" make great use of changing moods and
dynamics. An incredibly consistent and challenging album, other highlights
included the rockers "Had a Dad" and "Pigs In Zen", the horn-driven "Idiots
Rule", the jazz instrumental "Thank You Boys", and the up-tempo "Standing In the
Shower... Thinking". "Jane Says", the acid-etched portrait of a heroin
addict and probably the most sympathetic rock song ever written reached #6 on
the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks.
Great bands break rules, but legends write their own. JANE'S ADDICTION have
actually written the rule book for alternative music and culture through a
combination of genre-defying classic songs and a cinematic live experience.
Their songs serve as... the Ten Commandments for alt rock, inspiring an entire
generation of bands such as Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine, Nine Inch Nails,
Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam and Tool. When the Los Angeles quartet came along,
they merged alternative and rock like no one before, becoming the first
alternative rock band, creating a new sound and attitude.
"Nothing's Shocking is a must-have for lovers of cutting-edge, influential,
and timeless hard rock" - AMG
"...as much as any band in existence, Jane's Addiction is the true heir to Led
Zeppelin." - Rolling Stone, October 1988
