Jar of Flies - EP

Open iTunes om muziek voor te beluisteren, te kopen en te downloaden.


Written and recorded in about a week, Jar of Flies solidified Alice in Chains' somewhat bizarre pattern of alternating full-length hard rock albums with mostly acoustic, ballad-oriented EPs. That quirk aside, Jar of Flies is a low-key stunner, achingly gorgeous and harrowingly sorrowful all at once. In a way, it's a logical sequel to Dirt — despite the veneer of calm, the songs' voices still blame only themselves. But where Dirt found catharsis in its unrelenting darkness and depravity, Jar of Flies is about living with the consequences, full of deeply felt reflections on loneliness, self-imposed isolation, and lost human connections. The mood is still hopelessly bleak, but the poignant, introspective tone produces a sense of acceptance that's actually soothing, in a funereal sort of way. Jerry Cantrell's arrangements keep growing more detailed and layered; while there are a few noisy moments, most of Jar of Flies is bathed in a clean, shimmering ambience whose source is difficult to pin down, but is well served by Cantrell's varied guitar tones and even occasional string arrangements. And coming on the heels of Dirt, the restraint and subtlety of Jar of Flies are nothing short of revelatory — though it was written and recorded in about a week, it feels much more crafted and textured than Sap. Perhaps Jar of Flies would have gotten more credit if it had been a full-length album; as it stands, the EP is a leap forward and a major work in the Alice in Chains catalog. [Jar of Flies was released on LP in 2010.]

This Alice in Chains album has alot of acoustic songs wich I think are great sounding. The voices of Cantrell and Staley were just made for eachother. The melodies they sing are soothing an at the same time at sometimes very mean aswell wich is a great combination. A great example is Rotten Apple, the opening song. The verses bring you in some kind of trance and then when the chorus kicks in it just blows you away.
I Stay Away has strings on it. It makes it sound very epic and angry sounding with Layne's voice. No Excusses is an amazing song wich everybody needs to hear. This is just a classic song. It's also acoustic. It's a great singalong with nice melodies.
Don't follow is one of my favorite Alice In Chains songs. It has a quiet peacefull part sang by Jerry Cantrell (guitar) and it has a slight more agressive part sang ofcourse by Layne Staley.
All the other songs I didn't mentioned are also nice. It's a real short album but because of the quality of the songs I give it 4 stars.

Alice in Chains is een alternative metal of grungeband uit Seattle, opgericht in het midden van de jaren 80 door wijlen zanger Layne Stayley. AiC was een van de populairste bands uit de grunge-stroming. De band brak in de jaren 90 door met zijn mengeling van heavy metal riffs, akoestische nummers en donkere, melancholische teksten. Het album Dirt (1992) werd ruim drie miljoen keer verkocht. De band kampte naar verluid met veel interne spanningen rondom de drugsverslaving van Stayley, waardoor ze...
