Released as a very limited edition test market (Seattle, Boston) DualDisc, Jane's Addiction's "Strays" album from Capitol Records contains a HiRez DVD-Audio side with a 5.1 mix of the album.

so since there are no votes for this since it's oh so rare I will opine.

It's mediocre Jane's but it's actually a pretty darn good 5.1 surround mix.

I used to listen to early Jane's only (1990) for a whole year in my car on cassette and now I've heard probably a 100 surround (5.1 or better) discs and this is actually not a bad surround disc. (Bob Ezrin is no slouch)

I'm anywhere from a 5 (for the Jane's originality, meh) to a 10 for some moments of the surround mix.

Overall, some reminiscent Jane's fun but how do you put a vote or a price on something that is impossible to find and you're the only voter?

gonna say Bob (Ezrin) is the Master of the even console mix in 5.1

There's mixers that are all about Discrete and then there's mixers that are all about even mixing (it's just opinion who's is better)

I like both, shocker, (how can that be?)

I just couldn't get into it. I don't remember anything about the mix, but the content did not appeal. It's been a while since I listened but that's all I remember.
