5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, disturbing and brilliant. Aug. 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Alice in Chains" gets a lot of flack from fans and frankly I don't know why. It's definetely one of the best Alice in Chains album and one of the best hard-rock albums of the 90s. The entire album is a dark and disturbing trip to the head of a junkie trying to break free of his chains. Let's do this song by song:
1.) Grind
Great opener and the second best song in the album. "Grind" showcases why Jerry Cantrell is one of the premier guitarists of the 90s. He builds this entire song out of distorted, wailing wah-wah pedal noodlings. It's amazing to hear. His singing is also beautiful and serves as a startling contrast to Layne's distorted and terrifying vocals that surface at several points in the song. 10/10
2.) Brush Away
Another great song. The main riff is so sparkling and catchy you'll be humming it for days. 9/10
3.) Sludge Factory
I thought this track was kinda weak. It had a great beginning and Layne's vocals are at their best but it quickly degenerates into a rambling, unfocused track. It has its great moments though. Listen to the Unplugged version for a leaner and better version. 7/10
4.) Heaven Beside You
A beautiful song. Combining elements of folk and country with dashes of Alice in Chains' copyrighted brand of sludge make this track a winner. Once again Layne and Jerry harmonize and together create a beautiful vocal experience. It's almost like the Beatles...10/10
5.)Head Creeps
This is, in my opinion, the best song in the album. It's distorted, dark, rambling, hypnotic...everything an Alice in Chains song should be. Layne Staley sings this entire song with a menacing growl that can only be produced by a junkie. The whole song is like heroin-withdrawal set to guitars. Beautiful and horrifying. 10/10

I probably have reviewed this album here before, but I've rediscovered the brilliance of this record in recent months, and it's just blew me away how much new stuff I keep finding upon going back to it. To many AIC fans, this is their least favorite album of the band's career, but as AIC's studio swan song, they created a masterpiece on par with "Dirt."
First off, one of the things that I really love about this album is how much between albums Jerry Cantrell had developed as a vocalist. On "Dirt," he did a lot of great low-key harmonizing with Layne Staley, but here he sings some great leads, and you can tell how much Layne had influenced Jerry, vocally and lyrically, as Jerry probably influenced Layne a great deal as far as his guitar playing went (see also, Mad Season's "Above".) Having one of the pre-eminent "guitar gods" of the 1990s in the band allowed Layne to concentrate primarily on his amazing voice and songwriting, but you can still tell his guitar sound on several of the tracks here. Another development with the band around this time was the collaborative songwriting by the group. Before bassist Mike Inez joined, most all of the songs were either written by Cantrell or Staley, with the former doing the bulk of the songwriting and the latter writing most of the lyrics, but here, most of the songs were written by all four members, except for Cantrell's "Grind" and Staley's "Head Creeps," and "Again," co-written by Layne and Jerry.
Overall, this album is on par with "Dirt." While it isn't quite as dark as that album, it's just as engaging.

This album would put Dirt in the "Dirt" but it would need a few adjustments. First off, this is worth buying and is very different from Dirt or any of their albums.Like the gem on Dirt (Would),
The gem of this CD(Over Now), is also the last song on the album.
Many find this album out of place and so do I.But does that make it bad? The CD starts out with the very popular "Grind", which is an exellent song both written and made by Jerry Cantrell.
The next song is an underdog, but i love it, entitled "Brush Away"."Sludge Factory" is probably one of the best songs i have ever heard and the "OooOooOoo" makes it lovely. One quote about this song and many on this album is that it stretches the time limit with the nonsense talking and that is one of the flunks about this album.One of the top three best in my opinion is next which is "Heaven Beside You" another single, and again we have Jerry on the vocals.This next one is musically made by Layne Staley,which is sad.It is called "Head Creeps".I am very disappointed with this one and it is really just,bad.Hey that rhymed!!! 6-7 are nonstop amazing including the single "Again"."Shame In You" is soothing and "God Am" is AMAZING!
"So Close" has an awesome beginning guitar (especially when Jerry comes in with guitar), and then ends up in the pre-chorus and chorus.What can i say about "Nothin' Song"..."Frogs" is an even bigger underdog and i love it with all my heart."Over Now, personaly, is my favorite of the album along with "God Am" and "Heaven Beside You". Well that's about it and hope this helps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frogs Rules!!! May 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
Before I start, I'd like to ask: Why do some people hate 'Frogs?' This is my favorite song off the record. Long, sludgey, great guitar and bass. I'm a bass player myself and I found Frogs fun to play along to. The rest of Tripod is great as well. What I dig about Alice In Chains is their sludge grunge is backed up by melody. Very enjoyable, headbanging material here. This is obviously the late Layne Staley's masterpiece, having written most of the sings on here (Cantrell's work is also great) and singing his best yet.
Grind - Nice opener, great chorus. Sounds kinda like classic, old Alice in Chains (Facelift).
Brush Strokes - This song doesn't really catch my attention. Kinda weak compared to some others, but some nice guitar stuff going on here.
Sludge Factory - A great, powerfull, heavy riffing tune. One of my favorites.
Heaven Beside You - most mellow track, and one of the best. This is some great work by Jerry Cantrell.
Head Creeps - Second only to 'Frogs'. 'Head Creeps' and alot of stuff after it are more fast paced. I love the little "no more time" thing Staley does.
Again - Great stuff here. Fast paced, like 'Head Creeps'.
Shame in You - Another mellow one, and this one doesn't really catch my attention like some of the others. Still pretty nice, though.
God Am - Probably the best opening guitar riff I've ever heard. Great song.
So Close - Short, isn't it? Short but sweet, actually. This is a great song, and once again, I like the guitars.
Nothin' Song - This one cracks me up. Definitely not filler, contrary to what some folks think.
Frogs - The best song off the album, and the 2nd best AiC song ever. This one never ceases to amaze me. The melodic guitar riff at the beggining of the chorus...Wowzer.

From start to finish, this album is dark and interesting. Its a great album and possibly better than Dirt.
Worth the buy!

Cryptic song titles, sludgey riffs, pained singing from thinly stretched vocals...it must be an Alice in Chains CD. Yep, that's the one. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Leaves us wanting more, to this day...
Layne was apparently so addicted to herion during the sessions for this album that he was losing teeth, and apparently some of his extremities. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best "Metal" albums of the 90's
I find it interesting that so many people dislike it when a band tries to expand their sound, or try something even remotely different. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars The last album.
This self-titled album (a.k.a. Tripod), is more similar to "Dirt" than any of their other albums, and though it's not quite as good overall, it's still a solid farewell. Read more
