Heavy Alternative Led Zeppelin worship mixed with goth/glam styles... a fun album where guitarist Dave Navarro should get lots of praise for how interesting and exciting his playing is.

I don’t care what you think, “Ocean Size” is nearly shoegazing.
At least their influence is clear in alternative rock artists of the ‘90s, especially The Smashing Pumpkins - just put “Bury Me” and the ending “No One’s Leaving” next to each other.

Anche a trent'anni dalla sua uscita "Nothing's shocking" rimane un album grandioso. Per come ha saputo unire generi diversi ( vedi "Idiots rule" ) proponendo un hard totale che parte dai Led Zeppelin ( "Had a dad" ) e che si risolve anche in trame articolate ma mai pretenziose ( "Ted, just admit it…", la mia preferita ) mettendo sempre in primo piano le melodie.

Great album. Nothing's shocking, still sounds utterly unique today. It's funky, punky, and atmospheric. It's cinematic and intimate all at the same time. Personally, I just prefer follow up, ritual de lo habitual, but this is still a superb record in it's own right. This is the kind of record that is pivotal in a person's listening history. It can change the way you listen to music, forever. Maybe, it wouldn't so much now, but at the time, in the late eighties, it was a game changer.

It doesn't get much better than this. A perfect album. Everyone give Nirvana the credit but Nevermind would have never been played on the Radio if Jane's Addiction hadn't blurred the lines between Alternative, Metal and Punk two years earlier with Lollapaloosa, Nothing's Shocking and Ritual!

A lot of people describe this album as having elements of funk. I don't hear that as much as I hear Led Zepplin-like guitar. On certain songs I hear them trying to be funky but it comes across like a distorted JEAN LOVES GEZEBEL than anything else.

This is the best album from Jane's Addiction. Mountain Song is an amazing track. JA started out with a bang... unfortunately their genius was short-lived but this album is the band at their best. One of the best albums of the 80's for sure.

Totally under rated album. So many great songs! The three singles are all brilliant.

Great work by alternative rock pioneers. Too bad they sucked so badly after Ritual...
