10 Songs, 44 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Alice In Chains put a darker spin on '80s hard rock, wielding a bubbling-tar grunge sound that anchored the '90s alternative movement. “Would?” is rattled by guttural guitars and a shuddering bassline, while the psychedelic taffy-pull of "Grind" churns like a cement mixer. Hypnotic harmonies, led by late vocalist Layne Staley, mesmerize like a snake charmer on the percussion-heavy "No Excuses" and the metallic detonation of "Them Bones." And the dirge-like "Rooster," a tribute to guitarist Jerry Cantrell's Vietnam veteran father, is a searing personal statement.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Don't Let the 3 Stars Fool You!

The only reason I gave it a three is because it is missing a TON of their really good songs. Definitely for the casual fan or somebody who wants a taste of AiC. Get the real albums and listen to them all. Wouldn't it have been nice to add A Little Bitter...see Last Action Hero soundtrack...amongst all the others from Facelift (Man in the Box isn't even the best song on there). To you newbies, download FACELIFT first then go from there.
