ALICE IN CHAINS picture
Alice in Chains are one of the most influential American rock bands of the early '90s. Drawing equally from the heavy riffing of metal and the gloomy strains of post-punk, the band developed a bleak, nihilistic sound that balanced grinding metallic riffs 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 multi-platinum status with their second album, 1992's Dirt, it also divided them. Guitarist/vocalist Jerry Cantrell always leaned toward the mainstream, while vocalist Layne Staley was fascinated with the seamy underground. Such tension drove the band toward stardom in their early years, but following Dirt, Alice in Chains suffered from near-crippling internal tensions that kept the band off the road for the remainder of the '90s.

ALICE IN CHAINS Sap

siLLy puPPy
After their slow burner “Facelift” had made ALICE IN CHAINS a fairly huge band after a lengthy tour, they set forth to start recording material for a follow up album but in the midst of it all ended up recording five acoustic songs. Following a dream of drummer Sean Kinney that told him they must release an EP called SAP, they did. And in the process not only surprised a newly found fan base by their different dark folk sound but also by the fact that this was some damned good material. Beneath the grungy aggressive metal sounds this band had some serious soul and Layne Staley proved his vocal versatility. The band also incorporated some guest vocalists on this little gem. Ann Wilson from Heart lends her voice on “Brother” and “Am I Inside” and Chris Cornell also makes a few appearances as well a few other less knowns.

There are four beautifully constructed acoustic tracks here that are melodically brilliant but really fit into the depressive downer style that ALICE IN CHAINS was so adept at. There is also a hidden fifth track that sounds more like something off a Mike Patton related project as it sounds like a group of musically gifted ghosts with a megaphone rockin' out. I have always loved this EP as much as the much more popular symphonically oriented “Jar Of Flies” EP. The guitars are unplugged but this is definitely ALICE IN CHAINS and in retrospect a perfect little creation in between their debut and their magnum opus “Dirt.” Don't miss this one!

ALICE IN CHAINS ushered in the 1990s with this little gem of a debut album FACELIFT. Although it is kind of a transitional album morphing from a glam metal act called Alice 'N Chains, this album hit the road as full fledged alternative metal that was the very first grunge album to be certified platinum. I'm not sure why Nirvana gets so much credit as innovators in this type of sound since it was ALICE IN CHAINS who IMHO blew them away by consistently delivering a superior product. Not only did this band change the course of alternative metallic music by bringing back a blues oriented sound but they also bucked the trend of increasingly faster tempos that were developing in most forms of metal and slowing and tuning down more synonymous with the doom metal bands of the day.

FACELIFT was not an instant success until MTV began to play “Man In The Box” and then all hell broke loose and they rest is history. Two other singles “We Die Young” from the demo and “Sea Of Sorrow” helped propel this album into rock n roll history. For many years those singles were the ones I loved the most and in a way they still ring as the best tracks on the album, but after paying more attention to the rest of the album it is clear that this band found a unique niche in the musical world. Not really considered metal per se at the time, they have since then become recognized as such existing in that grey area between hard rock, blues rock and alternative metal. Nomenclature matters not to me. This is a band that is clearly subordinate to Layne Staley's vocals and musical vision.

This album constitutes a great bit of what ALICE IN CHAINS would further in their career but they do have a few red herrings from the past lingering on this one. The track “I Know Somethin' ('Bout You) “ is a bit of funky metal that reminds me more of what Extreme would be famous for. “Put You Down” sounds a bit too much like glam metal riffage that they were evolving out of. Many of these tracks seem like prototypes for the much better songwriting that would take full flight on the next release “Sap.” Overall this might have been a better album if it was trimmed down a little but not a bad debut. This strong album is dwarfed a bit by the stronger releases that followed and I have to admit that I focused less on this one and more than the others but after closer attention being paid I have to admit that this is a very good album in its own right. The best place for any potential ALICE IN CHAINS fan is to start right here on this first release.

Primeval Scum
The crown jewel of the grunge movement

Facelift and Alice in Chains were pretty good and Black Gives Way to Blue and The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here managed to be somewhat competent, but Dirt is in a league of its own. With this album, Alice In Chains achieved near-perfection of their sound. The album is stuffed to the brim with thick and gloomy, yet morbidly catchy rock songs. Make no mistake, this is no vanilla grunge a la Nirvana. Alice In Chains mix in lots of heavy metal and even doom metal influence to give their music a darker edge than most of their grunge contemporaries. The feelings of hopelessness and loneliness that these songs emit will grab you by the throat.

Of course, the songwriting of Jerry Cantrell and the vocals of Layne Staley are what make this album work so well. Cantrell and Staley's crooning vocal harmonies have made their permanent mark on rock history. Staley's wails on "Would" and "Down in a Hole" truly are the cries of a man who has lost hope and feels isolated from the world. Though it was a huge mainstream success, this album has something real and emotionally intense about it that few others do. Almost every song is a classic. A "Best Of" album for Alice In Chains should be about two-thirds of Dirt and a couple songs from their other two 90s albums. That's how great this thing is.

If you call yourself a fan of good rock music and you haven't given this thing a chance, you're doing yourself a real disservice.

Best songs: Sickman, Rooster, Junkhead, Dirt, God Smack, Hate to Feel, Angry Chair, Would?, Down in a Hole

"Facelift" is the debut full-length studio album by US, Seattle based alternative rock/metal act Alice in Chains. The album was released through Columbia Records in August 1990. While the band´s second full-length studio album "Dirt (1992)" was the album that really broke them through, "Facelift" was also quite successful, both in terms of sales and artistic recognition. The early nineties were a fertile breeding ground for alternative thinking rock/metal artists and Alice in Chains prospered from that.

The music on "Facelift" imediately sets the melancholic/depressive tone that is the red thread through the band´s entire discography. The mood is occasionally a bit more "light" than on later releases, but we´re generally dealing with a very dark and brooding rock/metal release. Lead vocalist Layne Staley has a distinct nasal vocal style that´s defining for the band´s sound but the band´s signature harmony vocals are also an important part of the sound. Main composer and guitarist Jerry Cantrell sings the harmonies accompanying the lead vocals. It´s interesting how some voices compliment each other so well that magic is created (simon & Garfunkel and The Beatles come to mind) and that´s certainly the case here too.

While "Facelift" opens with "We Die Young", "Man in the Box", "Sea of Sorrow" and "Bleed the Freak", which are probably the best known tracks from the album, because of their status as singles (the first three mentioned were also released as promotional videos and frequently aired on MTV in those days), the rest of the album is also packed with strong material. The band take a few tours into funky metal territory but otherwise we´re treated to heavy catchy riffing, soulful guitar solos, strong melodies, dark themed lyrics and a tight playing rythm section delivering original sounding alternative rock/metal.

The sound production is strong although it could have done without a little of the chorus effects used. All in all "Facelift" is a strong release though and considering that this is a debut album it´s a VERY strong release. I guess some of the excursions into funk territory are a bit "off" in the bigger picture and the consistency of the album suffers slightly because of that, but other than that I find "Facelift" highly recommendable. A 4 star (80%) rating is fully deserved.

"The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" is the 5th full-length studio album by US alternative rock/metal act Alice in Chains. The album was released through Capitol Records in May 2013. It´s the group´s second album after they made their recording comeback with "Black Gives Way To Blue (2009)" and the second with lead vocalist William DuVall. Most people are probably familiar with the band´s history of great commercial success in the early- to mid nineties, the long hiatus as a result of lead vocalist Layne Staley´s growing problems with drug addiction and his untimely death of a drug overdose in April 2002. But thankfully Alice in Chains reunited in 2005 with the inclusion of new lead vocalist William DuVall and seem hell bent to keep releasing dark and heavy rock music despite past issues and obstacles.

Stylistically "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" pretty much continue down the same musical path as "Black Gives Way To Blue (2009)". It´s dark, laid back and heavy rock music with the distinct sounding signature harmony vocals courtesy of William DuVall and Jerry Cantrell on top. Sometimes I wish they would sing more lead and spice it up with harmonies instead of the other way around, but I guess that´s one of the elements in their sound that makes them unique. The tracks seldom break out of the vers/chorus formula, but there is an intro here, a middle section there and some very strong soloing on the tracks too. Like the case was with the predecessor, not all tracks stand out equally much, but all material on the album are still of good quality. Tracks like "Hollow", "Stone" and the title track are highlights to my ears, but there are also other standout tracks on the album.

It´s an album that requires several spins to fully sink in though and if I have to make a critique, it would be about the fact that the album is almost 70 minutes long and that the tracks are generally too long and repetitive. It would be nice if the band didn´t repeat their vers/chorus sections 3 times in each track, when those sections are as long as they are. To my ears a more trimmed songwriting would have made the music more effectful. When that is said, "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" is still a quality release by Alice in Chains. The musicianship is excellent, the sound production professional, detailed and powerful and the best tracks on the album are very high quality material. Therefore a 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating is deserved.
