Found this album at a record store having never listened to it, assumed by the cover art it must’ve been earlish Jane’s post Ritual... so late 90s or 2000s... Wrong. This came out in 2011 or 2012?? Easily thought this sounded like classic Jane’s with a more pop sensible vocal style... wasn’t expecting it to be post 2010s... obviously it lost its funk flare without Eric Avery on bass but this album still rocks! Perry sounds great, Dave and Perk are on point, and even Duff McKagen makes a few appearances. Very underrated album. The fact this is barely in the top 500 OF ITS OWN YEAR is ludicrous. If you like Jane’s first few albums (87-90) you’ll probably like this... and I think it’ll grow even more

This album sounds like it could’ve come right out of Jane’s Addiction’s heyday. It’s a great album and as a Jane’s Addiction fan, it’s good to see them back to their old ways. Now it isn’t dead on exactly like an old album, but it’s about as close as you’re gonna get. It’s relatively the same, with a few oddities here and there. It’s a great album, definitely worth getting.
