The original post

Posted by Clint W. on 02.06.2006 at 07:01
As I am listening to Alice in Chains I thought I would make a topic for them. I put it in Hard Rock because that is what it is closest to I suppose. Sometimes they lean towards the Metal side but other times fall back to the more Rock/Grunge area, so it's fine here. Anyway, are there any fans of this band? Personally I think Staley was one of the best vocalists ever and Cantrell is an amazing guitar player. It seems that Staley's melancholic wailing and Cantrell's crunching guitar work always went together perfectly. I don't have a favorite album really, as I enjoy all of their material equally.

They're just trying to cash in on their old glories so they will keep the name much to the discontent of everyone else...the name Alice In Chains was Layne's idea too...

Has anyone heard the new album yet? I've heard nothing but positive remarks so far, but I haven't heard it yet.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the new album. They have really kept the distinctive Alice in Chains sound and managed to produce a very solid album.

I'm very impressed with the new album. They've done extremely well in taking elements from Facelift, Jar of Flies and Dirt. An instant classic in my opinion!

I downloaded their new album, as I saw a lot of people praised it, I really don't know what to expect.

Nah, now that I've listened to it, I'd say it's pretty mediocre. Also it reminds me of Nickleback agh

Gross! Don't compare it to them!

Sure, parts of it sound dull but it does have it's good moments, like Last Of My Kind and Your Decision.

I gave it a 7/10. I liked it, but I would never listen to it over the older albums. It did, however, make me spin their oldies once more. Overall, the album isn't a bad addition to the collection, but the sound is outdated.

Thankfully the album grew on me a little. It's good driving music.

I dont know I just dont feel Layne can be replaced, although the music is good on "Black gives way to Blue" (the albums nothing special) that feeling, that voice just isn't there. ( as Mike Starr said Layne is "Alice") Alice is missing. I think they should have just gone on, them three, without Duvall, or should have called back Mike Starr, but apparently he thinks the same as me, They just shouldn´t continue without Layne, at least under the name. Ultimately its their band so I guess they can do whatever they want

Listening right now to "Rain When I Die", great great song. very relaxing music for the most part imo. though it's weird, they sometimes do this thing: good build-up, and then, just as you expect the song to kick into epic metal mode, BOOM!! instead of a crushingly epic guitar chord, a weird wah-drenched guitar melody

though i guess listening to a few other songs by them, they're not one of your typical rock/whatever they play- bands.

Latest album "Black Gives Way To Blue" is full on sludgy. Not saying it's bad though. Kinda like it somehow. Still nothing on Dirt and Alice In Chains.

Lets see how the new album will sound like.

I think you have been vindicated. The new album does kickass. I'm not sure I rate it as highly as the previous album but it's close. Love the track "Phantom Limb" - I think that is one of the best songs they've ever written.
