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.

Unitron
Alice in Chains' self titled album, their last album to feature frontman Layne Staley, is one that is often forgotten or pushed aside in their discography. It is probably overshadowed by Dirt, which is often seen as the band's magnum opus and a crown jewel of the grunge genre, as well as the band's 2009 comeback album Black Gives Way to Blue, which is often seen as their best album after Dirt if not their best (Which I personally don't understand, I find that album pretty boring and bland, but that's a review for another day).

Alice in Chains is an album where you can just hear all the band tensions and what was going on at the time. While Jerry Cantrell has expressed his joy with the finished product, it sounds like Staley's heroin addiction made it a pain to get the record done. The band has never been known for uplifting music, but this album might very well be their most outright depressing and dreary album.

The underlying doom metal influence that's always been with the band perhaps shows up the most on this album. However, it is blended with some bittersweet melodies, harmonies, and a creative use of the band's acoustic side shown on their EP's. The band finally brings their two sounds together on this album, and it works beautifully. Great examples of this are on the longer songs on the album, such as "Sludge Factory", "Heaven Beside You", and "Frogs". You get this mesh of sludgy riffing dripping with misery and twangy acoustic blues guitar that actually enhances the overall mood. "Sludge Factory" I believe uses this sound best and is probably my favorite on the album.

Cantrell's comment in an interview of "Our music's kind of about taking something ugly and making it beautiful", really paints a good picture of this album's sound. This is partly due to the harmonies the Cantrell and Staley always make even in a really heavy or somber song. I once again refer to the longer songs on the album, especially "Heaven Beside You", whose bittersweet chorus is always followed up by this heavy doom metal riff. There's also some great screeching soloing on this record, like with "Sludge Factory" as well as "Brush Away". "Nothin' Song" also features this combined with some excellent syncopation. For one of the more doom-sounding songs, they sure made it pretty catchy. I think they knew that with the inclusion of lyrics such as "Well the nothin' song sticks to your mouth, like peanut butter on the brain".

This album is a perfect example of a grower. While Facelift has the instant appeal of it's infectiously catchy hooks and riffs, and Dirt has classic status, it takes a few listens for this one to fully sink in. Not to say there aren't some instant hooks on this album though, as I've always loved the classic opener of "Grind" and "Head Creeps" which immediately get you headbanging to the teeth-gritting riffs. If you've only heard this album once or twice and not thinking much of it, I recommend giving it another listen. It's a real underrated gem that deserves the same appreciation as the band's other albums.

Warthur
Of course this Alice In Chains sounds older and wiser than the unit that had first emerged during the peak grunge period - just look at what they'd been through since their previous studio album. First there were the seven years whilst the band was in limbo as a result of Layne Staley's struggles with bereavement, drug addiction, and a retreat into a reclusive lifestyle suggesting that there were perhaps additional mental health issues exacerbating these; then there was the shock of Staley's death, prompting the band to temporarily dissolve itself until in 2005 they drew together again and decided to continue their legacy.

New lad William DuVall takes up Staley's spot on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, though Jerry Cantrell shares the lead vocals here. This is a smart decision because it allows DuVall to ease into the role and gives more of a sense of continuity. As far as the music itself goes, we're headed into dark alternative metal territory here which, bar for the closing title track (featuring a piano cameo from Elton John), ranks among the heaviest releases of their career, and the weight of experience clearly hasn't robbed the band of the passion of their early material.

If you remember the 1990s and the alternative music scene of the time, putting on Dirt will instantly take you back there. The production style, performance aesthetic, and general approach of the album is absolutely rooted in the grunge era, and in the hands of a less talented crew this would put the album at risk of becoming seriously dated.

What saves it is that, as well as capturing a zeitgeist perfectly, Alice In Chains also completely burn the house down on Dirt. Mashing up a grunge aesthetic and well-honed alternative metal chops with a doomy approach which ensures the album has plenty to offer more traditional metal fans, the band wheel out classic tune after classic tune. making this perhaps one of the best grunge-metal crossover albums to ever emerge from that brief Seattle-spawned scene.

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.
