Jane's Addiction

This album was released in 2003, just about the time I started really waking up to what good music was/wasn't.
I got to hear Jane's Addiction play some of these songs live in an outdoor concert outside the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame in downtown Cleveland. There's been an emotional attachment to this album ever since.
That being said, this is certainly an album borne of the Age of Loud, where everything is mashed together, compressed and turns into noise. Loud noise.
Also, I'm increasingly of the mind that Perry Farrell is Jane's Addiction. Navarro & Co. are just along for the purple-and-plaid ride.
