An Original Masterpiece,
This review is from: Strays [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
This is another of those classic instant replay productions where you become hooked on the fist listening and have to replay at least 10 times in the first day.
The band obviously put a lot of thought and emotion into every single track on the album and the music is uplifting even at its lowest ebb.
I've tried previous Jayne's addiction and found them hard-work, the music never slipped as lovingly down the ear as this. Don't take this the wrong way but I don't think you can use Ritual as a benchmark as it's simply not in the same league. When they created strays they wanted to share something very special and that's exactly what they have done.
This album is a lighthouse, shining brightly in a sea of mass-produced mediochrity and gives me faith in my conviction that musically we don't have to settle for second best.
