  • Jerry Cantrell is a great voice double who works off the energy of Layne Staley and together they create such beautiful harmonies that they can be held as the best singing duo of all time since John and Paul

      Marking the 19th anniversary of Alice in Chain’s “Dirt”, it is only fitting to pay it tribute and praise for what it did for many fans of the band, and many people who were introduced to them through that album. This album had many very dark tones, battling many issues such as war, drug use, addiction, religion, and much more. The haunting voice of Layne Staley, who actually died in 2002 due to his battle against heroin which

      he explains oh so clearly in their music. Mike Starr is a great bassist that tears it up and Sean Kinney is the most underrated drummer of the 90s. Jerry Cantrell is a great voice double who works off the energy of Layne Staley and together they create such beautiful harmonies that they can be held as the best singing duo of all time since John and Paul. The singles from the album include “Would?”, “Angry Chair”, “Them Bones”, “Down in a Hole”, and “Rooster”.

      Personally, the album has great songs throughout, and may rival great albums such as Led Zeppelin 2 and The Dark Side of the Moon. The album has a set up similiar to Dark Side of the Moon, by that it tells a story throughout the album, from curious beginnings to a hopeless future.

      hard hitting sound, only they capitalized on it after their first, rather simplistic, album.

      It really was a revolutionary album. It inspired so many musicians, the most popular being the band “Godsmack”. (Godsmack is a song by Alice in Chains.) Also, one can really appreciate not only the hard sound of their songs, but the softer side of their music. Unlike Metallica which is very masculine and just has hard songs throughout their career, Alice in Chains broadens

      the spectrum of their sound and taps into all the sides of their personalities well. The song “Down in a Hole” is certainly much calmer than their other songs, but Layne’s voice just tears through your heart while listening to it. It’s not an “emo” band by any means, but a down to earth one. This is a must listen to anyone who wants to explore the 90s grunge period or anyone who just likes good music in general.
