    Nice to see another fan of grunge. Big fan of Alice In Chains. I saw them in a small club just after thier first release. What a great show. I was jacked up as I'm sure some of the members of the band were. I shock the hand of Layne Staley and congrulated him on the band's performance.

    The first four releases are fantastic, especially Dirt, a 5 star album IMO. I was somewhat disappointed with the s/t release though Black Gives Way to Blue was a great comeback. Also the Mad Season project was a good album.

    Layne Staley and I were in the same "space", fortunately I made it out alive.

    R.I.P.

    I like just about every band that came out of the Grunge Scene.

    I don't look at it as a genre due to the fact that these bands share nothing except their origins.

    Love AIC. Seeing them in NYC with Mastodon.

    one of the best riffs ever is Jerry Cantrell's for "Dirt."

    Love Alice In Chains! My favorite of their work is this live collection of songs:

    Alice In Chains-Unplugged
    [​IMG]

    In fact, I think it's the best Unplugged performance ever, even a hair above Nirvanas! :grinthumb

    Here are my favorite songs from the performance:

    Nutshell
    (my favorite track from them period)


    Down In A Hole


    Would?


    Hell, I would list the whole thing so I'll stop now! :heheh: I think the unplugged vibe was perfect suited for this band! The band had the perfect harmonies and you got to hear them front and center for album! :grinthumb

    I loved Jar Of Flies the most. I remember the first time I really listened to it was actually back in the end of June. Trying to sleep my girlfriend put it on and it was a relaxing but also IMO a haunting album.

    I think of that and it is nothing but a good memory.

    I like their Unplugged album, but no way would I say it is better than Nirvana's.

    Great band though. Still have my tickets to see them with Mastodon.

    I love AIC! I don't think I have heard a bad album from AIC. I am partial to "Jar of Flies". I really like the last album, "Black Gives Way to Blue"


    Here is my album review where I gave this a 5/5 rating:

    Black Gives Way to Blue

    Layne has always been one of my favorite vocalists. I am very pleased with the new addition of William DuVall, though, and his songwriting skills should be a huge bonus for AIC. I liked his voice in Comes with the Fall, his previous band.
