Product Description

Although Alice in Chains singer Layne Staley dropped off the radar following 1995's Alice in Chains, it's amazing how good he sounds on 1998's "Get Born Again," the one new track on this 15-song best-of outing. Sounding like a Dirt-era offering, the band's trademark dirgeful sound and melodic, layered, and haunting vocals shine on this strong Staley-Cantrell composition. And there's other interesting material that makes Nothing Safe a safe bet for fans. A demo of "We Die Young" is faster and more metal than the version on 1990's Facelift, while a live "Rooster," lilting "Got Me Wrong" (from Unplugged) and "What Hell Have I" from the Last Action Hero soundtrack are all eminently listenable. --Katherine Turman

This is it, folks.You won't hear a better best-of from any band as "Nothing Safe," chronicalling AIC's brilliant career. There's no need to waste money on the earlier "Greatest Hits" album, which contains fewer hits, zero new songs like "Get Born Again" and the demo version of "We Die Young" heard on "Nothing Safe," and sounds less than steller. OK, as in most greatest hits collections, there's always too few hits from the band you can put to record (or disk)for a serious hardcore fan like me, and so "Nothing Safe" is missing a few songs I consider essential: "Dirt," the title track from their breakthrough second album (a number that's played as often as "Would" on today's rock radio stations); "Heaven Beside You," which, along with "Rooster," happens to be one of AIC's best musical efforts (still puzzeled why they excluded it here- even "Greates Hits" has it!); and "Sludge Factory," another winning track from their self-titled 1995 album. Still, I guess "Nothing Safe" works as an incentive to listen to other AIC's work, and I am certainly greatful that this collection has persuaded me to check out their other albums. Plus, there's no denying that a handful of the classics, as well as a few surprises, are prominantly featured. If you are a first time fan, this is the starting point for your AIC collection. RIP Layne Staley- You and your band will truely be missed.

Now I'm sort of a newbie to AIC, and this was my first album I picked up. Seemed logical to get the "best of" first.
This is one of the best CDs I've ever heard.
Very dark, heavy, depressing, provacative, and intelligent.
Track by track:
1. Get Born Again (Demo) -***1/2- Great dark opening riff. Recorded in 1998, Layne sounds just as awesome as ever.
2. We Die Young -*****- This is a previously unreleased demo of song. Probably the best on the album. Very metal.
3. Man In The Box -****- Goes without saying that this is one of AIC's best songs.
4. Them Bones -****- Another classic.
5. Iron Gland -**1/2- Just that weird little "Iron Man" thing from 'Dirt'.
6. Angry Chair -***1/2- Very cool rock song.
7. Down In a Hole -***1/2- Soft change in the pace. Great stuff.
8. Rooster (Live) -****1/2- Very surprised by this. I always sort of thought that this song was overrated, but this version made me love it. Even better than the studio version. Much slower and darker.
9. Got Me Wrong (Unplugged) -***- Nice song.
10.No Excuses -***- Another one of their radio staples. Very good tune, although a little light for AIC.
11.I Stay Away -****- Quite possibly AIC's biggest hit. Excellent.
12.What The Hell Have I -***1/2- Cool rare song from the "Last Action Hero" soundtrack.
13.Grind -*****- Arguably the heaviest track on here. Brilliant. The title fits its "grinding" metal melody perfectly.
14.Again -*****- This was the song that got me seriously hooked on AIC. Like 3 songs in one. Absolutely have fallen in love with this song.
15.Would? -****1/2- Awesome.
I would highly recommend this album to any fan of grunge, rock, or heavy metal.

AIC's "Nothing Safe: The Best of the Box" is an excellent compilation package, featuring three songs nearly impossible to get anywhere else. (At least, as far as I can tell, other than the "Music Bank" 4 CD set. I'm really hoping to be able to afford that, one of these days.) The three songs are "Get Born Again," the demo version of "Them Bones," and "What the Hell have I?" off of the "Last Action Hero" soundtrack.
If you don't want the soundtrack to that movie (and I didn't), this is the best way to get that song, as it's excellent.
Well, all of the songs, even the spooky 40 second instrumental "Iron Gland," are excellent. Maybe that's not the point of this review.
Fact is, it's a damned shame Layne Staley is dead.
Why do I say that? Well, if you listen to "Get Born Again," which was recorded solely for this album, you think to yourself, "Damn, Staley had talent. Why'd he have to die so young?"
Of course, Jerry Cantrell and Mike Inez and Sean Kinney also did a whole hell of a lot to make this album great. Still, they at least are still living. Cantrell's still putting out good stuff, too (go check out "Boggy Depot" and his other album, "Degradation Trip," if you don't believe me).
But Staley is dead. And that's a damned shame.
Getting back to "Nothing Safe," "Get Born Again," in my estimation, was intended to be the start of a new AIC album. Staley, however, had major problems with depression and drugs, as everyone who's ever followed the band knows. I also think the suicide of his girlfriend/fianceé years before had something to do with this.
Never mind. This song, "Get Born Again," uses the same themes as AIC's self-titled 1995 album's "God Am" to good fashion, while sounding extremely caustic, yet laid back, at the same time.
