Album Review: Jane's Addiction - "The Great Escape Artist"

This is Jane’s Addiction. Or is it? Truly, it depends on what the name “Jane’s Addiction” means. If the name is synonymous with west-coast style funk influenced near-psychedelic alternative rock and roll, then “The Great Escape Artist” is not Jane’s Addiction. Contrarily, if the name “Jane’s Addiction” is less about the serialized sound of a band and more about a cadre of musicians constantly looking to experiment and broaden their aural horizons, then “The Great Escape Artist” is perfectly adept at carrying the umbrage of the title “Jane’s Addiction.”

Jane Says: A Conversation with Dave Navarro

It's been nothing short of an odyssey for Jane's Addiction, winding their way through breaking up and reuniting, hiatuses and activations, albums and tours. Out to prove that the band is still evolving and just as robust as Day One, Jane's Addiction returns for their fourth studio album "The Great Escape Artist." It was our honor to sit down with legendary guitarist and rock God Dave Navarro to get the scoop on "The Great Escape Artist", and where Jane's Addiction stands now.
M. Drew: Describe “The Great Escape Artist” to me. What can fans expect from this new album?
Dave Navarro: You can expect a new direction from the band that we haven’t been in before, but at the same time there are many threads and characteristics that are familiar in terms of where we used to come from. So if anything, it’s an evolution from where we were without forgetting where we came from.

Jane's Addiction Prepping New Album, Plus More!

*Icons of alternative and rock Jane's Addiction are prepping their new album, "The Great Escape Artist." The album will be the first studio material from the band in eight years, and features the iconic trio of Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro and Stephen Perkins (notice the lack of Eric Avery...evidently that bridge couldn't be rebuilt.) While there's no cement release date, the album is anticipated for a late summer arrival.
