Bongos can rock too.

The whole "Jar of Flies" album is superb. It really shows the flexibility and talent AIC has. They were the only band of their time to make both gloomy, sludgy hard rock and acoustic numbers sound great. They have so much range and the way the music accompanies Layne's voice and feeling is tops.
Report as inappropriate
Actually they were both, but they've never cared for labels, they've done heavy metal, alt metal, grunge, alternative and softer acoustic songs.
Report as inappropriate
Pandora defines this band as the definitive heavy metal band of the early 90's. Really? Heavy metal? No, AIC was straight up alternative and a breath of fresh air from the heavy metal lunkheads of the time.

My favorite band

Alice In Chains headed the main stage at Rockfest in May of this year here in K.C.MO...Wil l i a m Duvall was charismatic as HELL...he did the memory of Mr. Staley at OPTIMAL level!

You think its funny. Well you're drowning in it too.. I love the way they said when interviewed ,they wrote songs about what was going on in their lives...!! "Mike Starr" said about one of their lyrics "don't get high or you will die" ...on his new Orleans interview! Trying to help people with what they were going through. Some people get it twisted!! Ive always been A fan day 1!

I feel like some of the best songs Alice In Chains made were the ones from their more underrated EPs, like Jar Of Flies and Sap. I swear, those EPs are like buried treasure. It's amazing.

This song explains so much!! Insightful. Mellow, honest and thoughtful. A combination that's difficult to beat. It definitely kicks a$$!
