AllMusic Review by

Released to coincide with an anniversary tour also called Sterling Spoon in 2016 -- it celebrated the 25th anniversary of the first Lollapalooza -- Sterling Spoon is a six-LP vinyl box set that celebrates Jane's Addiction's glory days of Nothing's Shocking and Ritual de lo Habitual. Both albums are here -- Ritual spills over two albums -- and then there's an LP of selections from the 1997 rarity compilation Kettle Whistle, plus a double-LP release of Live from the Palladium in 1990. The latter has never been released in its entirety, so it's a good enticement in a box that otherwise simply offers shiny new re-pressings of the band's most popular material.
