'Ritual' features the singles 'Stop!', 'Three Days', 'Been Caught Stealing' and 'Classic Girl'.
Peter Kane of Q thought tha 'Ritual' was "Enigmatic, audacious and unpredictable to the last." And wrote "The gigantic swerve and swagger of Stop, the Chili Pepperish taunts of 'Ain't No Right', 'Of Course''s raga rocking and, above all, the epic 'Three Days', where guitarist David Navarro gets to pile the layers shoulder high, prove to be the stuff of true compulsion", Allmusics "...one of rock's all-time sprawling masterpieces."
Vinyl has the generic company label with top full colour shield logo and black printing on the backdrop of faint grey 'WB' shield logos.
Vinyl is held in an illustrated lyric inner sleeve - ultimately in a picture cover with artwork by singer Perry Farrell, related to the song "Three Days" and including male and female nudity? ultimately rejected for sale in stores in USA, but the only commercially availiable cover in Europe...
