4.0 out of 5 stars Good, short EP July 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Sap" is unusual for Alice in Chains, in that it has only four official songs, "Brother," "Got me Wrong," "Right Turn," and "Am I Inside." It's also unusual in that it features Ann Wilson from Heart and Chris Cornell from Soundgarden (among others); these were (and are) other Seattle-based musicians who believed in AIC, believed in how good they might turn out to be (as they'd only released one full length album previous to this, "Facelift"), and wished to make music with them.
Basically, I'd give 5 stars to both "Brother" and "Got Me Wrong," because they are slower than most AIC, but are still extremely powerful. "Brother" is about child abuse; "Got Me Wrong" is about relationship problems. I'd give 4 1/2 stars for "Right Turn," as I really like Chris Cornell's contribution here (this song is almost impossible to describe). And I'd give 3 stars for "Am I inside," because although I love the beginning and most of the singing, I still am unsure what this song means -- and I've listened to it over 100 times.
The fifth song is untitled; it's more of a demented jam session. I've heard it called "Love Song." I wonder what had just happened to Layne Staley and Jerry Cantrell, if so? They must have had tremendously bad experiences right before recording this, as it's the darkest and most depressing song they ever did -- full of distortion, overdubs, intentional feedback, and lacking any sense of vocal harmony _or_ vocal power. I'd give this song a 1 1/2.
Anyway, because most of the songs are very good, I've rounded up, and give this CD a solid four stars. Basically, if you like AIC, especially if you like the "softer" side of AIC as evidenced by "Jar of Flies" and "AIC MTV Unplugged," you will like this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars No exception, brothers... May 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
Layne Staley and Jerry Cantrell... In fact, these guys are worth being respected enough about their voice and technique alone. But, they also have genius to make songs with their souls in. Like Jar of Flies EP, this EP is focused on their calm and sentimental side. The 1st track, Brother, has some oriental melodies. So it attracks us into SAP world. The next track, Got Me Wrong, is a great song. Three chord riff in the opening is so impressive, but chord change in chorus part is still far more. And they made great vocal harmonies here "like they always do." Right Turn and Am I Inside? are more subtle tracks. Exeptional Cameos here are incredible, and vocal jam fade-out makes chaos of blue. In my opinion, this band can never be defined in boundaries of so called grunge. A lot of great songs they made showcases their uncommon talents. They have been respected highly by many people, but they are still underrated. They are out of grunge. THEY ARE REAL GENIUS IN WHOLE MUSIC SCENE OF THE 90'S.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great music, great band, but...... May 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
Unfortunately, Ann Wilson decided to peek her head into this project. This could potentially have been a perfect album, but her vocals take too much away from the songs. Perfect example: Brother. Listen to her harmonizing with Cantrell and then go listen to the Unplugged version where Staley does the harmonizing. There's just no substitute for the Cantrell/Staley formula. Not to knock AIC for trying something new, it just didn't work. Am I Inside is another prime example of this. The harmonizing is at some points so bad that it's hard to listen to.
Now, the good points. Got Me Wrong is one of AIC's best. (The fact that it's on the movie Clerks doesn't hurt either, hehe) Great guitar fill at the beginning which serves as a perfect hook for the rest of the song. Right Turn is great as well. Very simple tune as far as the guitar work goes, but the vocals are what makes this baby shine. When Chris Cornell kicks in at the end, it makes you want to hit the repeat button.
Overall, great great work by Jerry Cantrell on the guitar parts. Mike Starr really didn't get much of an opportunity to shine on the bass in this album, neither did Sean Kinney on drums. Layne of course blows 99% of all other vocalists away as usual. Again, the only real weak point was Ann Wilson on backups. If you can get by that, though, this is a definite addition to an AIC collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some hidden gems from AIC March 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
By now we all know this E.P. has five songs on it; not four. And we all know this is the (first) place to find Alice In Chains' hit song "Got Me Wrong". But what you may not know is that the two songs "Brother" and "Right Turn" (kudos Chris Cornell) are true Alice In Chains gems. You'll look at those three songs (especially track #1) and say 'wow'. That I can almost promise you. Along with Soundgarden's illustrious Cornell, "Right Turn" features infamous Mudhoney member Mark Arm; as they, along with Layne, move through the music flawlessly. And Jerry Cantrell's guitar work on the first three tracks is some of best he has ever done. However, the final two songs, "Am I Inside" and the untitled "Love Song" could very nearly be dubbed as flat-out bad. "Am I Inside" is a modestly made song with no real basis for success. And the hidden song is just horrible; I actually wish I'd never come across it. On another down note, the sound quality of the CD isn't that great. You may have to turn up your volume two or three notches to fully appreciate the music's melody.
In conclusion, you really only need this CD in your collection if you are a big Alice In Chains fan. By now (for lesser fans) you can find "Got Me Wrong" on either the soundtrack to Clerks or hear its stellar unplugged version on Nothing Safe-The Best of the Box and/or Unplugged. But "Brother" and "Right Turn" are definitely exceptional tracks; and deserve to be heard. Yet you must understand Alice In Chains in order to welcome those songs into your hearts. This five-song release gets 3 stars for each of its great songs. I could've done without "Am I Inside" and certainly "Love Song"; but remember...take the bad with the good.
