Editors’ Notes

With the excellent 2009 comeback album Black Gives Way to Blue, Alice in Chains proved that it could go on without late singer Layne Staley. At the vocal mic, William DuVall is keeping the group's reputation strong. But with two solid solo albums, it's a not-so-secret ingredient—guitarist Jerry Cantrell—who illustrated his importance to the Alice in Chains sound. He writes the riffs and creates left-of-center harmonies that embody the group's unsettling vibe. The minor-key metal-to-grunge riffs and harmonies are most powerful on tracks such as the title song, "Hollow," and "Stone," with the band lightening up for the acoustic-lined "Voices" and the even more evenly paced "Scalpel," which sounds like the band's likeliest chance at a crossover hit. Producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Rush, Velvet Revolver) brings a grand soundfield into play, with guitars layered for maximum effect; it's perfect for listening on quality headphones. More than 20 years on, Alice in Chains stays true to its vision while remaining open to new ways of expressing dark visions.

Excellent quality

Everything you would want in an Alice in Chains album is in The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. Great lyrics, guitar tones, harmonizing vocals, groovy riffs, and well-written dramatic melodic tunes as well. If you were a fan of grunge in the 90's, then you won't be disappointed with this effort.

Really REALLY Great!

Good to know that even though that all the good bands are selling out to synth sounds and modern pop stars, there are bands that are still passionate about their original sound and don't sell out. Keep up the good work.

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...
