Format: Audio CD
Ever feel dead-pan depressed, terminally lethargic, or slowly drowning in your own bloated apathy? If so I recommend AIC's filthy, gritty, soured masterpiece aptly titled "Dirt." This foray into heroin addiction, self-doubt, and utter societal confusion pillages the soul of all feeling but leaves the listener with a calming empathetic sense of sanguine expectation. This toxic fermentation makes the lowest of low understand the leprous fallacies of life, which slowly nibble away at the very tender fabric of an individual's spirit.
Now for the tunes. Carefully crafted into three sections this tortorous album goes from really bad, to even worse, and then to a state of pseudo-positivity. The opener "Them Bones" relentlessly crushes the skull of any unprepared listener and then quickly shifts into an even higher gear of underappreciation with "Dam That River." The third track "Rain When I Die" emphasizes how truly alone we all are with lyrics like "Is she ready to know my frustration/Slowly fogging my lights/Slow castration." By now my therapy session turns to a complete nightmare as "Sickman" utters a woeful tale of dissillusionment and unforgiven behavior, only to be followed by the Vietnam epic of "Rooster." The next four tracks mark the second part of this intoxicating contorted behemoth. Full blown addiction to chaos (or in Layne Staley's case heroin) pushes a normal person to near suicidal thoughts in these warped accounts of dangerous living and numbs the mind of all trivial distractions that life has to offer (i.e. love, happiness, or understanding).

Outside of "Them Bones", this album serves very little use short of a drink coaster. Facelift showed a band with quite a bit of promise, however, this album didnt live up to this fan's expectations. It does have some decent guitar riffs, although much of it is just plain noise, and personally, Layne Staley's vocals have never struck me as more than a guy who just slammed his finger in a car door. I say pass on buying it, and if you have already, sell it back to a music store as I did and go buy an extra value meal from mcdonalds...you will be much more satisfied.

This music is tasteless. Nothing but plain old recycled 70's riffs w/ offbeat drums. The riffs are same as Led Zepplin's only they were a great and time-tested group. How come AIC couldn't release another very good CD like FaceLift? 'Sickman' is just that, sick. Songs like 'Dirt', 'Junkhead', 'Hate to Feel', and 'Rain When I Die' have way too slow rhythms and are boring. Layne Staley sounds like Beavis as Cornholio. If you want better grunge, go listen to Soundgarden.

This CD is boring trash. I used to think 'Facelift' was good, but 'Dirt' is a terrible disc. The rhythms are way too slow and the guitar work is dull. I used to like AIC, but now I think they are extremely overrated. Especially Layne Staley. He doesn't play any instruments and doesn't write any of the lyrics, nevermind the music. The guitarist does all that, and he's not that good either. Go listen to Godsmack! They rule.

I'm sorry, I just have to do this.
How can anyone like this? It is so obviously a Godsmack rip off! I mean, they even named a song after the band that so want to copy! The lead singer ought to get his voice fixed because it'll make him seem less of a copy of Sully! Next thing you know, they'll all turn pagan!

This is a fantastic record from start to finish. The vocal harmonies of Layne Staley and Jerry Cantrell are a perfect fit. Love it.

Alice In Chains were one of the most revolutionary bands of the 90s and Dirt is the reason why. The best songs on the album are some of the best ever recorded during the Grunge/Metal heyday. "Would?", "Rooster", "Them Bones" and "Down In A Hole" are some of the heaviest songs ever recorded. Now I don't mean scream you're ass off, mega fast guitars, fast drums kind of heavy. I mean bleak vocals, heavy distorted guitars, heavy rhythym section, perfect heavy metal harmonies kind of heavy. Such a shame an unbelivable talent like Layne Staley didn't stay alive long enough too make more music with an amazing guitarist/singer/songwriter like Jerry Cantrell. This is an amazing album and a what real music was and should be not like cheesy rip-offs of the grunge genre like Godsmack, Nickleback and other such acts of crap.
P.S. for all of you 3rd person shooter or war video games fanatics, the best song to play to is Rooster.
