one of the most original and unique records of its era, "nothing's shocking" is the album that turned into the bar for alternative music. in many ways the la variant of grunge, jane's addiction successfully combines the sounds of '70s arena rock with a punk sensibility and a post-punk feel, adding perry farrell's esoteric and often dense lyrics on top of this. while commercial success would follow with "ritual de lo habitual", its controversial artwork and its hit single, this is in my assessment the superior album, and the benchmark for alternative music since. its a testament to jane's addiction that few records have been able to match this.
