Album Review

Upon its release, Sap was a revelation, a seemingly tossed-off EP of four mostly acoustic ballads (augmented with a goofy bonus track) that threw Alice in Chains' melodic gifts into stunning relief while exposing a gentler, more melancholy side of their sound, something that Facelift never even hinted at. The mood is still bleak, but not affectedly so, as was sometimes the case on Facelift.

All time Favorite

Right turn, in my opinion, is the best one on here. Its got Mark arm from mudhoney, Chris Cornell you should know where from and Layne. Awesome mix of vocals!!!
