This vinyl LP is the band’s first studio album, released as long ago as 1988. Regarded by many as the band’s best album, this work sees LA’s rock children approach writing through spontaneity. Navarro recalls that some songs “came from Eric's bass lines, some from guitar, some came from Perry, some came from drum riffs, and some just came from free-form jams. There was really no formula."

Nothing's Shocking by Jane's Addiction

7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 19th July 2015

In the late ‘80s, hard rock was dominated by the likes of Poison and Motley Crew, bands who cared as much about their hair as anything else. So, when “Nothing’s Shocking” came out in 1988 it was a refreshing alternative to the poodle-haired drivel. You can hear an overriding Led Zeppelin influence in places on here but at no point match them. It’s a proper rock album, nevertheless.

“Had A Dad” is the first stand out track and is typical of Jane’s Addiction’s shimmering L.A. funk-rock sound. It's a sound they had perfected on “Been Caught Stealing” from “Ritual De Lo Habitual”. There are a couple of slower tracks on here to break-up the in-your-face rock. “Summertime Rolls” has a rolling bass line and guitar soundscape that allows Perry Farrell’s vocal to creep over. Then there’s the acoustic guitar-led “Jane Says” which has pop-sensibilities and as close as the band get to a lighters-in-the-air stadium sing-a-long. The closing track “Pigs In Zen” is a grinding slab of funk-metal that foreshadows the sound of Rage Against The Machine.
