The album from Jane's Addiction's Perry Farrell on vinyl LP includes a limited time digital download card of the Dolby ATMOS Mix of the album.
Farrell's first solo album in 18 years features the Kind Heaven Orchestra made up of a host of musicians including co-producer Tony Visconti. Other contributors include Taylor Hawkins from Foo Fighters, and The Cars' Elliott Easton and Dhani Harrison.
""Pirate Punk Politician"... moves between eerie, industrial synths and slamming guitar riffs that recall Rage Against the Machine at their most devastating." - rollingstone.com
"Even with its abbreviated length, there is plenty to chew on, both sonically and conceptually. The 60-year-old Farrell sounds inspired and as edgy as 30 some years ago. If this collaboration with the 75-year-old Visconti is any indication, age has not dulled either innovator. Hopefully the impressive Kind Heaven is the start to a longer and more fruitful musical relationship." - American Songwriter
"Kind Heaven is every bit as ambitious an album as we've come to expect from Farrell, but it's more in line with the eclectic hard rock energy of his most popular work. Politics, sex, and hope for the future are all filtered through Farrell's distinctive presence on the album's nine songs. The tracks '(red white and blue) Cheerfulness' and 'Pirate Punk Politician' both have the same hard-hitting feel of classic Jane's Addiction grooves, the latter updated with hints of dubstep production. Farrell plays to his strengths, his trademark high-pitched and heavily delayed vocals sitting high in the mix. Production from rock royalty Tony Visconti brings a clarity to Farrell's weird musings, transforming a stream-of-consciousness vamp like 'Snakes Have Many Hips' into a sleazy blur of chamber pop glam rock. Farrell duets with his wife, Etty Lau Farrell, on several tracks like the high-tension ode to lust 'Machine Girl.' While Kind Heaven wanders through various strange inspirations, the songs feel connected and focused in a way Farrell hadn't managed on earlier solo albums, or even on fantastic but overreaching albums from other projects. The flow is cohesive but varied, allowing interesting ideas to really pop when they arrive. Album closer 'Let's All Pray for This World' begins with a swell of classical strings and bright acoustic guitars, standing out from the sultry rock that makes up much of the album but also making sense as a final track. At this point, Farrell is an elder statesman of forward-thinking rock music, and the swim of angular ideas that make up Kind Heaven is further evidence of his one-of-a-kind perspective." - AllMusic
