Alice In Chains (Dirt) 1992

As with the case regarding Facelift, I haven't listened to this one from top to bottom in the same amount of time. I had forgotten how amazing Dirt was/is. A lot of fans and critics like to point to this one as their one and only masterpiece. I agree that it is in fact a masterpiece, but I'm actually torn in which album I like better. Stylistically and sonically, this is a completely different album than Facelift. This one is a more gloomy and darker album and doesn't have the telltale hallmarks of rip roaring solos and riffs like the first one does.

So, if it has none of that, then what does it have? It has balls. I think the songwriting, music and lyrics are stronger in their 2nd album as heard in cuts like Them Bones, Rain When I Die, Rooster, Dirt and Angry Chair. I have to point out that the tone of this album is consistent from start to finish and works amazingly well as a whole. But each song is definitely an original from each other. I love this album, but I am still torn as to what I consider to be the superior album. I will definitely be playing this one for the rest of the night to wring out every last note I can. I can say that Layne is the true MVP of this album. His vocals just leaves goosebumps on my arms. Just....wow. When he hits certain notes, especially in Rooster it just leaves me speechless.

Fave Songs: All of 'em. But if I had to pick the Top 3 it would be Them Bones, Rooster and Rain When I Die.
