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.
