    Classic band

    One of my 3 fave LA bands- along with the Doors and Tool. This cd is awesome, covering a wide range with intense energy. The 2 songs "Three Days" and "Then She Did..." are just as good as any stuff by the "classic rock" bands. As great as Zeppelin at their peak but tighter...amazing musicians, great frontman, ferocious, gentle, magical...classic album.

    Pure Energy and Powerful Emotion

    Ritual was released at pinnacle of Janes' success at a time when a multitude of bands were already rushing to copy the formula from Nothing's Shocking. Ritual is on a short list of perfect albums that is cohesive enough you can listen to the whole thing through again and again. The first three tracks deliver a massive jolt of high energy. I have yet to hear an album that matches the energy of Stop, No One's Leaving and Aint No Right. Janes eases off the throttle slightly into Obvious and then picks you right back up again with Been Caught Stealing. Form there, Three Days and Then She Did take you on a musical journey that is so compelling that you are literally hanging on every note. Dave Navarro's leads are never boring and while technically impressive, he never makes the mistake of sacrificing the melody and mood of a song to play something hard on the guitar. Hooks are there to pick you up and take you where the music wants you to go. Perry's falsetto vocals are primal and touch on fundamental feelings that at times bring out your inner Aborigini. Steve Perkins, one of alt-rocks all time greatest drummers is techincally perfect and yet isn't just over the top. He too never sacrifices the song to show off his musicianship. Eric Avery played very solid bass and again did not teel the need to put way to many notes into the song just to show everyone how god he was at his instrument, a mistake many others made at the time. The creativity of this album was incredible and the sound really was original. I realize this review sound slike a lot of hyperbole, but people who know this album would agree that it's not an overstatement.
