It’s second single time for Jane’s Addiction’s comeback record The Great Escape Artist. Unfortunately The Great Escape Artist has received mixed reviews and has not sold very well since its release in October; which is a shame considering how solid of a record it is. It could the fact that the first single “The Irresistible Force” was something a little different from the band which might have deterred casual fans from taking an interest in the album.
At any rate, the new single is “Underground,” the album’s leadoff track. If you’re looking for the song most like classic Jane’s then this is it. It’s three minutes of hardcore rocking out; guitarist Dave Navarro absolutely shreds his guitar on this one. The riff will remind you a little bit of the classic “Mountain Song” but what’s so cool about “Underground” are the small sounds and effects that Navarro forces out of his guitar. It’s too bad the song is only three minutes long; albeit a spectacular three minutes. Overall, “Underground” is one of the best album leadoff songs that I’ve heard in a long time.
