Album Review: Jane’s Addiction – The Great Escape Artist

Jane’s Addiction is back with their 4th studio album and their first in 8 years. The Great Escape Artist is a 10-track sonic tour de force due to be released everywhere October 18. This is classic Jane’s Addiction: sexy, dirty, and playful at times and epic at others. Like traveling through outer space surrounded by infinite calming beauty at one moment and flying through a supernova or an asteroid field the next.

The Great Escape Artist is a complete album that gets better with every listen. Original JA members Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, and Stephen Perkins with producer Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol) added TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek to write and play bass on the album. At 52 years old Perry is as vital as ever and accompanied by an inspired Dave Navarro to put together the next great chapter in the Jane’s Addiction legacy. (more…)
