Buy this album now. Everyone has to have a copy of this album. Forget about the links with RHCP, forget about Farrell's ego, forget about Satellite Party and forget about the reformation and 'Strays'.
Ritual De Lo Habitual is THE most overlooked 'classic' album. In terms of that era of 'alternative' rock it's up there with Locust Abortion Technician for audacity and weirdness, and Siamese Dream for sheer unmitigated musical joy and songwriting.
