“Live Voodoo” [Blu-ray] by Jane’s Addiction

Artist: Jane’s Addiction
Title: “Live Voodoo” (Blu-ray)
Label: Eagle Vision
Release Date: 8/31/2010
Genre: Hard Rock
Rating: 4/5

Released simultaneously as the standard DVD format comes the Blu-ray edition of Jane’s Addictions “Live Voodoo”. The content is exactly the same as with the standard but looks and sounds a whole lot better by being delivered in higher quality. Check out my views about this release below.

My exposure to the music of Jane’s Addiction goes way back to a self-titled live album that a buddy of mine had, and while it was not something I was currently listening to in terms of genre style, there was something intoxicating about the bands manner of delivery. I would find myself following their growth as a band and kept on doing so through their debut release of “Nothing’s Shocking” up until their sophomore effort “Ritual de lo Habitual” before I was finding myself needing copious doses of Metal once again. For many fans these were the bands best examples of work and they would part ways for the first time in 1991. Despite my enjoying their material quite a bit back then I never got to catch the band performing live which made their first ever DVD release “Live Voodoo” something very interesting to sit back and enjoy. The concert presented was filmed in 2009 and delivers the bands original lineup in action with their ultra-enigmatic lead singer Perry Farrell, guitar blazer Dave Navarro, bassist Eric Avery and drummer Stephen Perkins. A legacy fan could not have asked for anything more, but will totally appreciate the fact about how the film gives you songs focused on their first two studio albums. Considering where I come from in terms of this bands impact to my own tastes, I was very fine with that.
