Very interesting album

While this band is obviously similar to Jane's, there are some differences. Peter DiStefano and Martyn LeNoble are more technically skilled players than Dave Navarro and Eric Avery. However, the way their music comes together with Stephen Perkins is much different. The music doesn't revolve around a simple but hypnotic bass groove like much of Jane's early music did. These guys flow together very well (Perry did a good job of picking DiStefano and LeNoble) but again, in a very different way. This band's music has sort of a "spur-of-the-moment" feel. I wouldn't say there's a bad song on the album, but there aren't those amazing, mind-blowing songs like on Nothing's Shocking or Ritual de lo Habitual. It's an album you have a hard time not listening to all the way through once you get hooked on it. I definitely recommend this album as well as their second album, Good God's Urge.

Porno for Pyros

Under-rated, under-hyped, forgotten and a little-bit lost in the sea of early 90's alternative sets, but it holds its own when you hit play and reminisce. The fan of percussion will dig Perkins, who once again proves he belongs with the greatest; or maybe even in a league of his own. Haunting, and melodic, the second half grooves; the first half is a little bit 'Nothing's Shocking' but mixes it up well. A must-have for any fan of music.

I didn't appreciate it back then

In the early 90's - I was in my early 20's and in college. Like MANY, I was bummed when Janes broke up...and in turn was overly critical of Pornos as a follow up. I just wanted more Janes...but seriously that was unfair to them. It really is great, in every way.
