I don't think it matters what anyone says you will find any way possible to spin it as if Perry is a money grubber and doesn't want anyone else to make any.
12.5%
he wanted to keep Janes special where's the rest wanted to be a mainstream rock band
The original version of Strays had extended parts of the songs that were removed in the final version.

You don't write a 6 minute song to begin with if you just want to be a mainstream rock band.

They hired the guy who did The Wall, not the guy who makes Nickelback records.

Stop trying to rewrite the history that all of us already know. Etty doesn't pay you anymore, so you don't need to cover his ass.

I just listened to about 2 minutes of each of the songs. Sadly, Machine Girl/Pirate are the best songs on the album. Can't believe that the guy who wrote Ocean Size/Then she Did/Mnt Song came up with this record.

I listened to it on my commute and I gotta say it’s nowhere near as terrible as I thought it was going to be. Will I listen to it again? No but I was expecting I like em big territory and it’s just like shitty and cringey old man rock territory.

Though I almost lol’d to myself during Machine Girl where the lyrics are ‘keep talking, sex talking’ because I’m pretty sure those were joke lyrics 67 posted one time.

No, it's just an old song that Perry is recycling. We've just been making fun of it for that long.

Lol okay that would explain that then.

I’m also impressed Ettys voice still sounds awful with 2019 audio technology.

I bought the record. And it’s complete garbage!!! Although I give Perry credit for making new music. I just don’t dig it.

Can we stop the Perry vs. Dave integrity thing? It's completely and utterly moot at this point.

SP was awful. Kind Heaven is a little better but still bad. His goofy, corny, out-of-touch uncle shit is a huge impediment to any chance of Jane's being good again. Not to mention his voice.

Panic Channel was HORRENDOUS. Dave hasn't released a note of music in eight years.

Eric at the very least lends his services to a good band that has a lot of integrity - Garbage. I think he still works on solo stuff, but doesn't release because he doesn't feel there is demand for it, which is a weak excuse. He's pretty stubborn and set in his ways to a fault. But I still admire him.

Perkins plays his ass off all the time with a many different artists, big or small. That's dope. He rules.

Perry Farrell, Kind Heaven

★★★★☆

For Perry Farrell fans, the mere fact that he’s releasing his first solo album in almost two decades should be enough to generate excitement. But the former Jane’s Addiction and Porno for Pyros frontman, who excels at the kind of psychedelic punk rock pioneered by Iggy Pop and David Bowie, clearly thinks that’s not enough. Not only does Kind Heaven feature an “orchestra” of musicians including Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Elliot Easton (The Cars) and Dhani Harrison, it’s also accompanied by the launch of an eccentric-sounding theme park in Las Vegas under the same name.

Fans will have to put this vision of “a dynamic world… offering the best of southeast Asian culture, music, food… exoticism and spiritual enlightenment” to one side in order to appreciate Farrell’s album, which is really very good. Kind Heaven opens on the Sixties-influenced “(red, white and blue) Cheerfulness”, with bounding rhythms and Farrell’s barking, Paul McCartney-like delivery (think “Back in the USSR”). This quickly veers into the industrial squall and distorted vocals of “Pirate Punk Politician”, which envisages Donald Trump as a would-be anti-Christ.

My review..

(red, white, and blue) Cheerfulness - sounds like Sesame Street theme.
Pirate Punk Politician - catchy chorus, but not a very good song.
Snakes Have Many Hips - ok, this is a fine, fun, throw-away song.
Machine Girl - another catchy chorus but nothing else.
One - Actung Baby? ...And Justice for All? Eddie Lou Farrell shines, I kinda like it.
Where Have You Been All My Life - Not feeling this one at all. Yawn. Least fav.
More Than I Could Bear - sounds like a bastardization of FNM's "King for a Day"
Spend The Body - More like "declare bankruptcy on the body"
Let's All Pray For This World - autotuned apacolypse. Fitting ending.

overall: nothing I'll be compelled to listen to twice, but could be worse. C-

I took a quick listen .. sounds like a meatloaf bat out of hell vibe to me .. except with stoopid electronic modern rawk production .. mostly tho it sounds like desperation .. old people trying to prove they are still sexual to the world .. kinda gross hearing crusty old plastic surgery disasters trying to sound sexy and sexual with musical production geared towards teenage audience .. like they think they are turning on teenagers with their sexual chemistry .. i think perry has some good musical ideas .. and this has a musical theatre vibe .. just the lyrical content and production do not work at all .. i give it a rating of DELETE DELETE DELETE .. that's 3 deletes out of 1 .. that's how bad I want this record off my hard drive
