Consequence of Sound

The classic Jane’s rough edges have been smoothed out and coated in electronic confections, but there is a darker, grinding groove beneath that sonic sheen.


In a world where truly nothing is shocking, Jane's Addiction have understandably lost the will and desire to be as outrageous and confrontational as they once were.

A.V. Club

Great Escape is a bold, erratic, pathetic attempt to recontextualize Jane’s for the 21st century.
