Product Description

Amazon.ca

Jane's Addiction helped put the word "alternative" on the middle-American map with a scarlet A, but their straight-up rock was always front and center. On Strays, the first Jane's Addiction studio album in 13 years, there's no mistaking Perry Farrell's trademark vocal sound (a nasal goose? a banshee in flight?) and Dave Navarro's ever-adaptable guitar style. But the band--only bassist Eric Avery is absent from their classic lineup, replaced by Chris Chaney--hasn't come to party like it's 1991. Sure, the balance of hedonism and earnestness, environmentalism and decadence, remains, but the quartet's approach is that of a unit ready to flex a few new muscles. Listeners will notice roof-raisers like "True Nature" and "Hypersonic" first, but some of the quieter tracks ("Price I Pay," with the classic Farrell rationalization "I always do the wrong thing, but I got a good reason," "To Match the Sun") are among the most effective Jane's mood pieces ever. Strays is certainly a much more apt return than 1997’s odds-and-sods compilation Kettle Whistle. --Rickey Wright

3.0 out of 5 stars Jane's Addiction - 'Strays' (Capitol) May 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
After taking over a dozen years apart from one another,the CD 'Strays' more than PROVES that Jane's Addiction not only returns in name,but in spirit as well.I've heard several other fans slam this release.They don't know their music.As 'Strays' may not have the same edge as earlier Jane's records,it more than holds the band's maximum creativity intact.Jane's Addiction,as far as I'm concerned has successfully combined the elements of psych,metal,pop,folk and alternative.There aren't that many bands out there that can do that and pull it off as well.Best tracks include "True Nature",the title cut "Strays",the modern day classic single "Just Because"(STILL love seeing the video),"Suffer Some" and "To Match The Sun".Newest band member,bassist Chris Chaney(who's also worked with Rob Zombie and Alanis Morrissette)fits in real well.No complaints here.Hope that Jane's put out more music in the years to come.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great music, if the CD will play Aug. 16 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'll be brief. The music on this CD is great. At least it was in the store and in my car, but the thing is copy protected and won't play on my (very high end) home CD player.
I'll return it to the store and buy something else.
Definitely not recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Aug. 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The album is definately my most played cd at the time. Like other people have posted the copyright is a bit of a pain in the ass, but I haven't had any real problems - it plays on my cd player and on my computer. So if you can do without ripping the cd to your harddrive, then this cd is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give it a few listens June 28 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album isn't going to change anyone's life, like so many fans have claimed the earlier albums had. You can't compare it to the old stuff because too many years have passed. Just listen a few times and ask yourself.
Does it sound good? does it rock?
Hell yes.

4.0 out of 5 stars good comeback June 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
A good comeback, but the presence of Mr. Avery is sorely missing. All the elements of classic Jane's are here, albiet slightly watered down. Recommended, but not quite up to their former glory.

1.0 out of 5 stars How sad... June 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
As many reviewers have already noted, Jane's Addiction was one of the great late 80s early 90s bands. I'd like to give JA the benefit of a doubt--maybe they're going in a direction I'm just not willing to follow, but to me, the songs on this cd sound uninspired, generic, flavorless and overproduced. What's particularly depressing about this is that all the players obviously still have their chops. They just don't have anything to say. Still, I wish them well--if all JA had done was "Nothing's Shocking," that would be more than enough.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Album but Copy Protected June 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is copy protected so you won't be able to play it on your MP3 player, on your computer (without their software which didn't work for me), on some Car stereos and even on some home stereos!
Tell them what you think about this sort of thing by taking your money elsewhere.

3.0 out of 5 stars Really good, but not a classic. June 14 2004
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
Most of the other reviews have gotten the point across, this is a good album, especially considering the break they took, but it's not their best. Overall it's more of a straight-forward rock record, and not as creative or unique as the old stuff is. Still though, if you don't compare it to their other albums it's really good, and better than most of the crap I continue to hear on radio. The first 3 tracks are very strong, "Everybody's Friend" is a nice slow song, and the closer is sweet too. As far as the DVD goes, it's about 20-30 minutes of behind-the-scenes type footage, and the video for "Just Because" also. The disc and DVD are a must for the fanatic, newcomers should just get "Nothing's Shocking" or "Ritual De Lo Habitual".
