Where's the love for Jane?

I'm not sure where I'd put this exactly, but here it goes...

So I was looking at the recent poll results, and Nothing's Shocking, in my opinion the best album on the list, is last! What the hell, man! Yes, Ten and Texas Flood are great albums, but they have such a huge lead(Ten has 64%!) and Jane's is well, awesome! Anyway, what I want to know is, what album did you pick, and why did you pick it? Yeah...

stuff!

    Personally I never got the hype around Jane's Addiction, but I will now go vote for them just to lessen Pearl Jam's score.

    The Ballad of Jane.....

    She was always something special
    A diamond shining bright in the rain
    Everybody dreams of angels
    No one will ever know how much i loved you so

    Chorus......
    Now it all seems funny
    Kinda like a dream
    Things aint always what they seem
    What a shame
    What happened to jane

    U were always on my mind
    A childlike summer days in the sun
    Slowly wishes turn to sadness
    Time don't heal a broken gun
    I wish i'd never let you go
    Hear me now cuase i want ya to know

    Now she's breakin' hearts in heaven
    Shining bright in the sky
    I still hear her voice in the wind
    I still think of you in the night
    Well i guess she'll never know
    How much i need her so

    I voted for Ten, but next in line was Nothing's Shocking. I really like Jane's Addiction, but they are commonly overlooked. People know songs like "Jane Says" and "Been Caught Stealing", but not to many know the name Jane's Addiction, or at least people I have seen.

    Never been much of a fan of Jane's Addiction, didn't mind the hits much but that's not enough to put it over Texas Flood.

    I voted Texas Flood on principle, but Ten is the only one of those three I'll buy the whole album for. I'll snag about 3 songs off JA, about 5 from SRV, and the whole shebang for PJ.

    I voted for Texas Flood because Stevie Ray is one of the greatest guitarists of all time, but Jane's Addiction was not too far behind. I love JA's sound and they have an awesome bassist.

    Ten's a good album, but as far as Grunge goes, what I most want to see are some singles by non-Big 4 bands like Screaming Trees, Mudhoney, Green River, etc.

    I voted for Jane's Addiction. I can't wait for it to finally come out. Of course, being the huge alternative fan I am and not liking Pearl Jam too much, there wasn't too much choice.

    I feel you big time, one of my favorite albums. Were even being beaten by SRV.

    I know. It sucks! But hey, at least the SRV fans are happy this week.

    Voted for Jane's. I share your sentiments brother. Besides being the best album of the three, they are the most importand band in the history of rock out of the others. Vastly underappreciated and overlooked, but if you know your salt, you know what's right.

    I'm looking forward to both but man is Nothing's Shocking gonna be awesome. There are so many great songs on that album. I can listen to the album all the way through most of the time. Highlights for my include "Up the Beach", "Ocean Size", "Ted, Just Admit It", "Jane Says", and "Pigs in Zen".

    After playing "Polly" on an instrument other than guitar, I'm suddenly worried about Jane Says, which is a lot like Polly, especially on Bass.

    Also, "Had a Dad" will be awesome.

    I think the fact that we will be playing steel drums more than makes up for this.

    Ah. Steel Drums. I dunno, have any of you heard the Kettle Whistle Live version? It was awesome.

    I actually prefer the live version to the studio one.
