Alice in Chains Ė Dirt (1992)
An album like this is a lot like my Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Primus albums. It reminds me of high school, the early 1990ís and not giving a fuck. Those were good days and this album was part of the soundtrack. But I donít just enjoy it because it brings back good memories. The fact is itís a fucking awesome album. Any Alice in Chains is really, but this is the quintessential Alice in Chains album. Itís got the heavy, riff-tastic songs like Them Bones, Junkhead, Angry Chair
(and so many others) and those beautiful melodic slower songs like Rooster
and Down in Hole
. Those are the best songs on any Alice in Chains songs, where Jerry Cantrell really steps up. Fuck, Iíve been listening to Rooster
for twenty years and the first verse still sends shivers down my spine. Click on the link below and go to school kids.
