While not their most definitive album (that honor belongs to 1992's Dirt), Jar of Flies represents an important step in Alice in Chains' recording career. Witness "I Stay Away," which is made up of equal portions of hummable guitar riffs and the spookier, scarier, more grinding elements that most fans associate with Alice in Chains. This song most clearly delineates the dichotomy that was a highlight of the band's sound--Jerry Cantrell's listenable tunes and often gorgeous arrangements (just listen to what he does with "Whale & Wasp"!) and Layne Staley's growling vocals, which are just the teeniest bit flat. The collection as a whole, brief as it is, has an elegance that's unusual for metal. --Genevieve Williams
This was an awesome purchase. A couple of my all time favorite songs are on these records, and the gatefold sleeve is so nice, gloss finish with great album art.... Read morePublished 27 days ago by josh wile

This album is ridiculously amazing, just as is Dirt. Man oh man, it doesn't get much better than Alice in Chains, which in my opinion is the best grunge band of the early 90's... Read morePublished on March 21 2004
This is a great album, although very short, but its still of very high quality.
Rotten Apple: Good opener, starts off with a real good bass line. Read more
A truly emotional EP. My only qualm is that I wish it were longer than an EP...
Every song is gut-wrenching, along with being produced perfectly. Read more
Alice in Chains was a band that could succeed at whatever it wanted to do. If it wanted to make a deafeningly awesome metal record (Facelift, Dirt), so be it. Read morePublished on Feb. 26 2004 by JohnnyDoolittle
