4.0 out of 5 stars Foreshadowing for great changes to come Feb. 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
During Alice in Chains' transition from bluesy metal to grunge metal, they released an EP which raised the standard for beauty in the world of grunge. "Sap" starts off with "Brother", a hauntingly beautiful work of poetry, followed by "Got Me Wrong", a more upbeat tune which stands out prominently on the Clerks soundtrack. "Right Turn" is a good song with a who's who guest list of the Seattle rock scene. "Am I Inside" starts off creepy, but progresses into a great rock song with fantastic backing vocals, and proves itself the benchmark for sublimely dissonant harmonizing. "Sap" is the turning point for one of the greatest bands of the 90's, and proves itself listenable time and time again. There is also an untitled fifth track which is tolerable for only one listen and hardly worth mentioning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than all this new crap! Jan. 29 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Sap is definetly one of the best albums ever.It starts out with the melodic but still hard rocking "Brother" in which Layne Staley is backed by Ann Wilson of Heart, and has some seriously good guitar riffs and their signature voice mixing. Next is the classic "Got Me Wrong" (which is also on "Unplugged" and "Nothing Safe: Best of the Box") which is often considered the best song on this album and definetly lives up to the title, with lyrics by Jerry Cantrell such as "I haven't felt like this in so long Wrong, in a sense too far gone from love." The third song is "Right Turn" where Staley sings with Chris Cornell of Soundgarden and Mark Arm of Mudhoney and is one of the best vocal mixings of all time. The last listed track is "Am I Inside" which I think is the best on this album after "Got Me Wrong" because of the guitar and the great vocals. the bonus track is a bizare so called "Love song" that would better fit on Facelift than Sap. Overall this a gret album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Acoustic Heaven Jan. 24 2004
By Marc
Format:Audio CD
Close the curtains, light a candle or two and lie back, close your eyes and drift away to this amazing EP. Haunting, atmospheric the 4 main tracks are superb. The trademark AIC vocal harmonies are here for all to hear. Recorded after Layne started using drugs but before he became too lost in his battle. This showcases the softer introspective side of the band. A must for fans of the band and a good starting point for those who like meloow guitar based music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Peacuful AIC Aug. 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
The songs are all ballads. "Brother" and "Got Me Wrong" are very good. They play very good acoustic. "Right Turn" and "Am I Inside" are pretty good too. This album differs very much from their debut but I believe AIC fans like it!

This almost all acoustic EP shows guitarist Jerry Cantrell's talent doesn't necessarily need to be loud to be appreciated. The four songs here are all very cool in a mellow sort of way. Cantrell himself sings lead on the Zeppelin influenced "Brother" and joins with regular singer Layne Stayley and Soundgarden's Chris Cornell on "Right Turn." The swampy and ultra-catchy "Got Me Wrong" previews future AIC acoustic material with it's original vocal harmonies back to basics feel. The fact that this EP was never intended to sell makes it sound all that much sweeter.

5.0 out of 5 stars A mellow break. July 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
A nice change of pace after the grittiness of "Facelift"...and it really kind of prepares you for the jolt of "Dirt". I really love this album alot, and it has my favorite song by them, which is "Got me Wrong", although they are all good. It's just too bad that they won't be able to bring back the old magic they used to have together.

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.

Make no word about it, this is a very good disc. Extremely short, but still a good disc. However, the only songs that really ever appealed to me on it were Brother and Got Me... Read more

Layne Staley and Jerry Cantrell... In fact, these guys are worth being respected enough about their voice and technique alone. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Great music, great band, but......
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. Read more
