The album starts off with one of Alice In Chains best songs, 'We Die Young' is hard, heavy, and scary! 'Man In The Box' is next and it just maybe Alice In Chains best song. It has one of Jerry Cantrells best guitar solos. Next is the classic 'Sea Of Sorrow' which is also one of Alice In Chains best songs. 'Bleed The Freak' is one of my all time favorite Alice In Chains songs, its just a killer song! 'I Cant Remember' is another great song, a little slower but still heavy as hell! 'Love, Hate, Love' is a great hard rocker, its kinda crazy though! 'It Aint Like That' doesnt really stand out but its still a really good song. 'Sunshine' is a killer hard rock song with awesome guitar! 'Put You Down' is a strange but good song. 'Confusion' is a really strange song but I love it. 'I Know Something about you' has Beatles-esq lyrics but metal music, is killer! 'Real Thing' is the perfect song to end the album.
Buy this you will love it and I can garanty that!!!
Alice in Chains clearly find their inspiration in the legacy of such notable British acts as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, taking the bluesy touch from the first band, and downtuned guitar sludge from the second. Layne Staley's very diverse vocals are at their best on this record. Obviously, drugs haven't yet taken their toll on him. As usual, Jerry Cantrell's guitar is the cornerstone of the songwriting, and he also contributes with good backing vocals, creating multi-layered vocal patterns with Layne. The rhythm-section also suites the music and presents versatility in styling.
Though the songwriting at times is debatable here, and the difference in song-styles might turn off some listeners, still it's a very recommended album. Somehow it's emotionally uplifting to me.
Facelift starts off with a bang with the engaging and mind-blasting opener "We Die Young." The rage seethes and the head rings and as soon as the song jolts to an abrupt halt just two and a half minutes long, you are hooked. From there it only gets better with "Man In A Box," the defining song of Alice in Chains' career. Who can forget the grating, booming crunch of the opening guitar and Layne's full-throated vocals. You know from the beginning that this is the song to remember. On the chorus, Layne and Jerry make the perfect, if odd, vocal combination with Jerry's mournful answers fitted neatly between Layne's incredible fully exerted cries. And of course, Cantrell doesn't disappoint on the solo either. Hit repeat a couple dozen times and enjoy all of this one. After that, AIC completely jerks you around and completely surprises you with some almost funky keyboard that gives way to the familiar sounds of trademark AIC music. This song is a little softer still with a strangely catchy chorus.Read more ›
