3.0 out of 5 stars I can appreciate the effort, but.... April 1 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If this box set is strictly meant to be a retrospective, than it succeeds on that level, because it largely recycles many of the album tracks, and usually in the same playing order as the albums. The previously unreleased material is where this set unfortunately falls short. It offers up old demos of Chains as a cheese-metal band (albeit, one with a sense of humor), and one great track from the post-Facelift pre-Dirt days, "Lying Season". The rest? Remixes of "What The Hell Have I" and "A Little Bitter", the second of which sounded better with the original, supposedly 'tinny' mix job; also there is a baffling, cacophonic remix of "Again". Why is the great song that I found online, called "Blue", not included here? Or the bands' cover of "Suffragete City" ?(maybe they didn't want to pay Bowie royalties) Of the songs recorded for the box set, the characteristically creepy "Get Born Again" is great, but the song "Died", well, even Jerry writes that he wishes they "had a little more time with that one". I just think the guys were a little to close to this project to produce a proper career retrospective -- maybe that is still to come and I'm wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars the mighty Alice in Chains Jan. 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
okay, so if you were wondering, either as an Alice virgin or a veteran, whether this 4-disc behemoth set is worth your time and money, then wonder no more! The Music Bank is a veritable vault, in a box designed to look like a combination safe, comprising a fine mixture of old, rare Alice tracks with original and demo versions of some of their hits on the first 3 discs. The fourth contains some video material and radio interviews as well as a peculiar quest-like computer game to "unlock the box."
As far as the best Alice songs go, some are missing from this collection. Others are here as previously unavailable demo versions. Still others are from various live performances over the years. And there are 2 new ones, as well. Couple this with a very emotive booklet summing up the Alice story with its own mix of subtle humour balanced with plank-upside-the-head bluntness and you have a superb chronicle of the legendary Alice in Chains.
Make no mistake, Alice have been around the Seattle scene easily as long as Soundgarden; long before the rise and fall of Cobain; and from the days when Pearl Jam was still Green River and then Mother Love Bone. While Nirvana may have been the Phoenix of rock , they were by no means the lone bastion of "grunge." Not to say anything bad about the 'garden, or Pearl Jam - both number up there as my all-time favorites. I think, though, at the end of the day, Alice will rise as my all-time #1 - fine musicians and song-writers all, brilliant performers and artists to the bittersweet end.

This boxed set is amazing, first off 3 discs featuring the best of all 5 of Alice In Chains Albums (disc1 Facelift and Sap disc2 Dirt, Jar of Flies disc3 Alice In Chains), along with lots of unreleased demos before anyone heard of Alice (demos sound like Guns N' Roses). There are even three acoustic versions of songs (disc3 MTV Unplugged). These CDs are packed with 80 minutes of music each, so its well worth the price, all the hits like Would, Got Me Wrong and dozens more. Also the jams like Toad, and Bleed the Freak are in the set. Next if the fourth disc, a CD-ROM for your MAC or PC, includes full screen videos of Born Again, I Stay Away, Love Hate Love, Man In The Box, No Excuses, and 3 more. Also on the disc are five video interviews, and countless radio interviews answering questions of callers like why they are called Alice In Chains. Finally on the disc is an interactive game to save the Goat Doll. Its stupidly fun, and you navigate with your mouse through the game. Finally there is a very thick book that comes in the bank and goes through the band's history in photos and brief statements. ...

2.0 out of 5 stars Can you say kaa-ching ? Jan. 1 2002
By CoolCat
Format:Audio CD
I am really getting sick and tired of these attempts to cash in and milk various good bands that stopped playing for one reason or another. Where ever you look, it's some record company releasing some compilation with 1 extra track that has been unreleased before. That is such a pile of [...]. Not only do we get watered down bands that can't play a decent tune, bands ripping off any good riff they can hear (that's been played before '90 just in case), but we get offers from people that can't spell "good music", and those offers reek.
Take a look at this box: over 50 songs made by great band, band whos studio albums are amazing, and in those 50 songs there are few unknown songs (demos, unreleased).
What does bands studio albums have to do with this one ? Simple, if you like this band, you will probably have, more or less, all their studio albums. And this box is not made for Alice in Chains first-timers, no sir. No one in their right state of mind would buy a box-set by, to them, unknown band or band from which they've heard 2 radio songs. I doubt this box was made for fans, because: why in the freakin' [....] would you put together a box for fans (ppl that own studio material) containing HUGE chunks of their studio material ? I just don't get it. Someone said: when I get a box, I want all studio material. Why ? If you're not owning all studio material, why would you buy a box-set ?
When _I_ get a box-set, I want it to be full of unreleased songs, demos, rare concert tracks, rare covers, messed up songs. Anything BUT studio material, and in this case, it has one whole album and big parts of other albums. Oh, and by the way, the album that is represented as whole in this set is the most famous one !!
Very nice.

Was there, really, a better band from the early 90's Seattle scene? I love Nirvana and have always felt Kurt's music was more intelligent. Read more

Even if your not a Alice in Chains fan and your just curious. Pick up this box set. Once you listen to a few tracks off any CD, you'll be listening to them all. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive rock music box set
This one's for the fans, definitely. I would suggest anyone who's never heard Alice in Chains (where have you been?) to start with their previous records "Dirt",or "Jar of Flies. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars They should've released an EP of the unreleased material.
This seems like a bit of a cash in, like the other live album and the "Best of the box" CD. I really believe that every AIC album is worth purchasing,and is full of really great... Read more
