A Cabinet of Curiosities
Label: Rhino/Warner Records
On the cusp of embarking on a massive reunion tour (the first with all four original members since 1991), Jane's Addiction release this expansive set of demos, outtakes and live cuts. To date, the band has only released three studio albums, but its influence still resonates throughout alt rock. This is a great set for fans, encompassing the group's work from 1986-1991 (they left out material from 2003's Strays, which is probably for the best). Skip the hits and go straight to gems like "Summertime Rolls" and "Ocean Size," plus covers of the Dead's "Ripple" and Zep's "Whole Lotta Love."
