iTunes Review

Alice In Chains’ Dirt casts an unnerving spell unlike anything else from the grunge explosion. Driven by relentlessly aggressive but rhythmically slippery riffs, “Would?” and “God Smack” give Layne Staley a chance to explore a vocal arsenal that encompasses bluesy wails, unholy screams and guttural growls. While “Dirt” and “Hate to Feel” are some of the darkest dirges since Black Sabbath’s prime, the album peaks with “Down in a Hole” and “Rooster”, a pair of spooky, majestic ballads that alter the idea of what a slow-burning hard rock song can sound like.

Customer Reviews


A grunge masterpiece born out of the autobigraphical commentary of Staley's addiction set to the excellent melodic metal of Jerry Cantrell's score. Cantrell did contribute solo writing efforts to the album (the excellent 'Them Bones' and 'Rooster' among them), but it's Staley's tales that provide the tone that defines Dirt. This album has great heart and honesty, and despite its bleak outlook it is a story you can listen to many times. It also goes to show a heartbreaking anthem doesn't have to be a pretty ballad - " Caught in ice so she stares, stares at nothing. I can help her but won't, now she hates me. Or did she call my name...?". Great music.

You can tell that Alice In Chains are a band that sings from the depths within them. They're very talented and everyone should give them a listen. I can listen to them and just chill and mellow out, the lyrics that they brew talk to the very soul.


Alright, on my facelift review i gave it three stars because the only good songs on it where the singles, "it ain't like that", "love, hate love," and "The Real Thing" i then told whoever was reading it to go to this album instead. This album owns facelift every single track on it is awesome and is worth being a single (well, except for iron gland because it has no vocals and goes for like 30 seconds) it is awesome!


Formed: 1987 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

In many ways, Alice in Chains was the definitive heavy metal band of the early '90s. Drawing equally from the heavy riffing of post-Van Halen metal and the gloomy strains of post-punk, the band developed a bleak, nihilistic sound that balanced grinding hard rock with subtly textured acoustic numbers. They were hard enough for metal fans, yet their dark subject matter and punky attack placed them among the front ranks of the Seattle-based grunge bands. While this dichotomy helped the group soar to...
