Live in NYC

Alternative gods Jane's Addiction broke up and re-formed multiple times following their late-'80s/early-'90s heyday, riding the genius of their early albums into respectable updates on the sound for 2003's Strays and 2011's The Great Escape Artist. Live in NYC is another concert document capturing the band in their always visceral live show, this time performing a N.Y.C. gig in support of The Great Escape Artist in July of 2011. Not surprisingly, the set list is packed mostly with material from their first three albums, with the band playing roughly half the songs from 1990's Ritual de lo Habitual, several tunes from Nothing's Shocking, and opening the show with an unexpected rendition of "Whores" from their self-titled 1987 album. The two later tunes that sneak into the set -- "Just Because" and "Irresistible Force (Met the Immovable Object)" -- feel natural, easily the best inclusions on a set consisting mostly of crowd favorites. Perhaps the band's master statement, the epic "Three Days," is a standout here, reaching toward the same dizzying moments of blind euphoria as the original, and "Ocean Size" also comes close to the electricity and screaming bliss of its recorded version from decades past.
