Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Certified at 2 million units by the RIAA. (2/01)

By far Jane's Addiction's best album, Ritual De Lo Habitual is chock full of songs that are both catchy and experimental. The singles "Stop" and "Been Caught Stealing" are good examples; "No One's Leaving" has a nice funk edge with some busy guitar work, and "Ain't No Right" and "Obvious" are strong as well. Unfortunately, "Three Days" and "Then She Did . . ." are overlong and get bogged down well short of halfway through, but the album finishes strongly with "Of Course" and "Classic Girl". Jane's Addiction's funk-punk-rock mix is appealing, and never more so than on this album. --Genevieve Williams

first off, I'll say that I find Ritual to be a more musically interesting and challenging album than Nothing's Shocking. the band takes more risks and tries to accomplish more, and it's a breathtaking, mind-boggling achievement for a group of musicians. that being said, I prefer Nothing's Shocking because I find that one to be a more powerful and affecting album. but they're both works of genius, and belong in the collection of any serious fan of music. note that I said music, not rock or alternative or punk. because the two albums are significant and masterful enough that they can't be limited to a genre.
now, then. there's been a lot of talk in these reviews about Three Days and Then She Did, and I feel compelled to share some knowledge with my fellow Amazon customers.
Three Days is not just a song about a heroin-fueled weekend with two girls. it's a memorial of sorts to a girl that Perry loved, a girl who was a budding artist, who ODed before achieving her promise. yes, some of the lyrics are about one lost weekend, but it also commemorates everything about his lost friend ("we miss you, my dear Xiola..."). this theme was carried forth into Then She Did (the original title was Then She Died) and Perry addresses his dead friend in the last stanza, asking her to say hello to his own dead mother when she gets to heaven: "will you say hello to my ma, will you pay a visit to her, she was an artist just as you were, I'd have introduced you to her..."
that's pretty powerful stuff. this album was clearly not intended to please rock critics and semi-literate music dilettantes with short attention spans. the two songs I've discussed are songs with a purpose, a message to convey, and emotions to share with the world. and they are epic works of musicianship.

If you listen to bands like Nickelback, Puddle Of Mudd, and Staind, chances are two things are the case: a), you're a complete lame-o and you need to stop letting mainstream radio tell you what to think, and b), you've never heard "Ritual de lo Habitual." This is yet another of those albums that I regret not having gotten a lot sooner. Long before the bands mentioned above were making the genre look bad with their manufactured angst and laughably tedious songs, Jane's addiction were playing music that made the term "alternative rock" mean something. If you've just heard the uber-catchy hit "Been Caught Stealing," you've only heard the beginning of what the guys achieved here, as this album displays virtually limitless amounts of talent and creativity. In the singular vocalist Perry Farrell and staggeringly underrated guitarist Dave Navarro, Jane's addiction were led by doubtless one of the great one-two punches of our time. Dave's searing riffs and blazing solos are the kind that get stuck in your head for days after you hear them, and Perry's demented wail remains distinctive and instantly recognizable to this day.
What's most impressive about "Ritual de lo Habitual" is that its nine tracks are basically split into two different, if equally great, albums. The album starts out with five hard-driving rock songs with a psychedelic feel, equal measures explosive, trippy, and funky. "No One's Leaving" and "Been Caught Stealing" are the obvious standouts among this first batch of songs, but each one displays the band's own mix of manic, frenetic energy; intricate songwriting; and astounding technical skill.

This is one of my favorite albums of all time. However, in response to the review at the top of the page, I would just like to say that anyone who finds the song, "Three Days" boring, should just stop listening to music altogether, because they just don't get it. That is one of the most powerful, interesting, and moving songs I have ever heard. It starts out really mellow, and just builds and builds for about 8 minutes, and then explodes in a magnificent frenzy. I absolutely love all eleven minutes of that song. Also, "Then She Did" is another of the most moving songs I have ever heard. It is so powerful that everytime I hear it, I get goosebumps. It is my all time favorite Jane's Addiction song, with "Three Days" being 2nd. Those 2 are by far the best songs on this album, and are more than worth the price for this album alone. Other great tunes include: Stop, Classic Girl, Of Course, Ain't No Right and the song that was played to death on the radio and MTV, Been Caught Stealing. This whole album is brilliant, but "Three Days" and "Then She Did" are beyond comparison. I assume the reviewer must have a very short attention span. For I can think of no other reason for such ludicrous comments.

Blazing their way out of the decadent-yet-copycat LA rock/metal scene of the late ‘80s, Jane’s Addiction cut a perplexing figure in the era of phoffed hair and cheesy chord-riffs, unabashedly defining neo ‘art-metal’ and gleefully defying standard conventions on their way to the top. The appeal of Jane’s was, on the surface, a paradoxical one: Perry Farrell’s shrill howl and junkie frame coupled with Stephen Perkin’s tribal drum technique added an exotic mystique to Dave Navarro’s epic guitar workouts and Eric A’s booming, melodic bass. How could frantic heavy metal chords—-the red meat staple of middle-American angst-—be threaded with lyrics about pigs wallowing in blissful Zen and the search for a God who, I paraphrase, didn’t seem to be there at all? Yet they did. And Jane’s influence was multi-fold, far shadowing their more popular peers: in the span of two albums they foretold the sludge-despair of grunge by a few years while stirring in a heady dose of sunny enthusiasm that the coffee-drenched Seattle sound unfortunately lacked. Jane’s rocked, pure and simple, a mix of equal parts intellectual seeking and adrenaline release.
Ritual de lo Habitual is their best album, a hallucinatory epic that conjures images of neon-lit bordellos and crash pads, of needle fever, of the search for redemption through whatever means necessary. Like so many other great albums by great bands—including The Wall, the White Album, Who’s Next—Ritual was conceived and crafted in a difficult period for the band, with them right on the verge of implosion…yet from this tension was gleaned the best playing and compositions these individual players had come up with yet (and since).
