This is another level for Jane's Addiction, and they're opening doors for curious artists to follow just like they did nearly thirty years ago. Farrell says, "I love being able to escape my past even though my past was great. I just love the future even more."

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

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 line up, replaced by Chris Chaney--hasn't come to party like its 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

Welcome back to the grandaddies of alternative. Jane's Addiction's first album in 13 years explodes onto the scene and is dearly welcomed in a world of depressed rap/rock tedium. Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, and Stephen Perkins reunite atlast with the addition of new bassist Chris Chaney. "Stray" is a masterpiece of flamboyant lyricism and decadent guitars that exhilirate the senses. The first single "Just Because" harks back in style to the huge sounding "Mountain Song" (Nothings Shocking 1990) but has even more energy and exhuberance. "To Match the Sun" and "Price I Pay" show the more delicate intimate side of the band. "Strays" mixes the band's in your face hedonism with songs like "Wrong Girl" with it's political environmental awareness which is apparent in title track "Strays". The album is a true breath of fresh air and is the band's most mature piece of work to date.

Listening to this album it is hard to believe that it has been well over a decade since they released their last studio album (Ritual De Lo Habitual). Three of the original four members reunite to produce a classic Jane's album which follows on effortlessly from where they left off. The opening track "True Nature" may surprise some with it's heavy riffing and slide guitar but there is no mistaking that voice. Existing Jane's fans who have been waiting all these years will definitely not be disappointed. Equally I am sure they will pick up a new fan base with this album .... I only hope that this will encourage people to pick up their back catalogue. Jane's Addiction have never conformed to trends and are truly one of "the" most original bands. Perry Farrell (vocals), Dave Navarro (guitar)and Stephen Perkins (drums) all have a totally individual style and each is immediately recognisable. They are now joined by Chris Chaney on bass who sounds equally impressive and certainly not content to sit in the shadow of the original three. For those who may be unfamiliar with Jane's Addiction, I can only say that if you liked the single (Just Because) then I urge you to buy this - you won't be disappointed !
(For existing fans the DVD edition is a must - approx 30 mins of live and behind the scenes footage).
Let's just hope they tour over here .... they are one of the greatest live bands you are ever likely to see.

It's been a long time since Perry and co. have graced music listeners with anything approaching an album since 1990's classic 'Ritual de lo Habitual'. 'Strays' is fantastic, and on first listen its difficult to take in, with Dave Navarro's signature style splattered all over the record. The songs are so complex and dynamic, full of melodic and crunching guitar sections throughout the album.
I cant really pull many weak aspects from the album, and just wait to you here the standard of songwriting in the last track 'To match the sun', which opens with an incredible cosmic melodic intro and explodes into life with a huge riff from Navarro(memories of Three Days).
From the Acoustic ballad of 'Everybody's friend' and the Chilli pepper style 'Wrong Girl' through to the full out guitar assaults on 'True Nature' and the single 'Just Because', this is an album with something for everybody.
'Strays' in my opinion is their strongest album to date. Janes addiction are the perfect rock band, and have talent which other artists could only dream of. Album of the year? Well its far better than the likes of Radiohead's release, so make your own mind up.
Its great to see you back boys.

Its been 13 years since the last release by Jane's Addiction (not counting 1997's "Kettle Whistle" mixed-bag) and the band are still going strong. Overall, "Strays" picks up just where Ritual de lo Habitual left off. 11 powerful tracks that show that Jane's Addiction were, and still are the band that sets the standards for all alternative rock bands.
Strays starts out with the power-rock of True Nature, a song that shifts from hard rock to melodic meandering in a matter of moments. Title track "Strays" sounds like a track that could fit in well to the band's second release, "Nothing's Shocking". "Just Because", the first single from this album is a powerful rock song highlighting everything I used to (and still do) love about this band, Perry Farrell's melodic vocals over multi layered guitars.
The only difference from the "old" Janes Addiction is the abscence of original bass player, Eric Avery. New bass player, Chris Chaney, delivers basslines that perfectly suit the band and that Avery would be proud of. To summarise, this is a top album and I recommend it to anyone who wants to hear some great guitar rock.

I have to confess that I came to the Jane's addiction party rather late. In the 90's whilst in my teens I was busy listening to my parents old vinyl eg Dylan/Beatles, which was great but as a result I did sort of miss out on the current scene a bit.I have since gone back to the 90's and explored things a little more. Many albums by such bands as Pearl Jam and the Smashing Pumpkins do actually stand up, and aren't as 'dated' as I was led to believe by some. When 'strays' came out it did seem the perfect chance to have a look at Jane's Addiction as a new listener. I have subsequently listened to the two earlier albums 'nothing shocking' and 'ritual de lo habitual'. i do think in honesty that these are better albums as they appear to be setting trends rather than following them.
What we have with 'Strays' though is an expertly crafted rock album, which feels a bit contrived but I found myself bowled over by the sheer enthusiasm of it all. True Nature begins the album with crunching guitar riffs perfect for rock radio, and track 3 Just Because, follows the trend. I would say my faves on the album are the Title track, 'wrong girl' and 'suffer some' which highlight some wonderful sinewy bass playing from new guy Chris Chaney. The hard rock only ceases on track 8 'everybody's friend' which admittedly is no 'jane says' but is still a decent ballad. Produced by Bob Ezrin, he of Kiss and Alice Cooper fame, they clearly said 'look we want classic rock here', and they got it. It seems a pertinent time now to talk of Jane's Addiction with a 'best of' out soon and it seems sadly the band is no more.
