Jane's Addiction: Strays

Sound — 10
This album is simply brilliant. It begins with the heavy zeppelin-esque riff from 'true nature', including two guitar solos. it has a mostly hard/alternative rock theme, which is shown by the riffs and solos in most of the other songs. The best songs are 'Price I pay' and 'riches', contrasting louder sections with the calmer beginnings, with extremely cathcy riffs and chorus. 'Just because' is also an all round strong track, with a great intro lead and verse riff, plus loadsa solos and fills.

Lyrics — 10
The lyrics work brilliantly with the music, especially on 'riches', where it really stands out on the first verse. Nothing seems out of place on this album, and seeing as they have had a lot of experiences together, these lot have a fair amount to say

Overall Impression — 10
This is one of the best comeback albums of the year, after being apart for 12 years. Jane's addiction are bringing rock n roll back, and you would be a fool to miss out on this oppurtunity.
