This is one of the greatest debuts ever(if not the best). Alice In Chains is the best band of all time, I don't care what you say. Now, I will go over the songs:
1. We Die Young-10/10-The very first song is oh so crucial on a record, and this one does not disappoint.
2. Man In The Box-15/10-It is that good. In my opinion, this is their best song. (check out the solo)
3. Sea Of Sorrow-10/10-Good song with some interesting lyrics. Check it out.
4. Bleed The Freak-10/10-My second favorite track, this song cannot be played enough.
5. I Can't Remember-10/10-Do you notice a pattern in the song ratings?
6. Love, Hate, Love-8/10-Not a big fan of this one, it just drags on too long for my taste (but not as long as it is on their Live album).
7. It Ain't Like That-10/10-Good guitar, good lyrics (sounds like just about every other Alice song, huh?)
8. Sunshine-10/10-Great song that I cannot, once again, get tired of.
9. Put You Down-10/10-GREAT BASS IN THIS ONE!
10. Confusion-8/10-My least favorite on here.
11. I Know Somethin' ('Bout You)-10/10-Sounds close to being punk or something. Still a good song.
12. Real Thing-10/10-Yay! a song about cocaine! how could it be any better than that?
All in all, buy this album and you will not be disappointed. If you can deal with tapes, it only costs $5.

In leu of the death of the late Layne Staley, this album has perhaps grown in terms of importance and nostalgia, a throwback to the early days of grunge rock. And, certainly, after a listen or two through this little diamond in the rough, it is not hard to fathom why Alice in Chains etched such a tangible place for themselves in the rock industry. While this is clearly not their best work, it shows a great deal of promise for what their sound would be melding into on later albums. While listening to gems like "Man in the Box", "We Die Young", "Sea of Sorrow" and "It Ain't Like That" you catch a glimpse at the band that would one day cultivate enormous songs like "Them Bones", "Dam the River", "Grind", "Heaven Beside You", "No Excuses" "Down in a Hole" "Got Me Wrong" and numerous others. For a debut album from a then obscure, little known band from Seattle way back in 1990, this album is worth its weight in gold if not as a testament to what the band would one day become but rather as a testament as to the kind of wallop the band packed from day one. If you're a fan of music, this highly influential band and album should be in your collection.

When FACELIFT was released, the metal scene had started to become stale. Everywhere you looked, hair bands where the dominating scene so when this rocking, sometimes dark and dreary album was released, music become good again. This album is full of classic songs that to this day continue to get a good amount of airplay on various radio stations. WE DIE YOUNG, MAN IN THE BOX, SEA OF SORROW, BLEED THE FREAK, LOVE HATE LOVE, I CANT REMEMBER, IT AINT LIKE THAT are some heavy songs that rock and suck the listener right in. When I came back from the Gulf War in '91, MAN IN THE BOX was a huge hit, being played all over the radio and MTV. Remember this album was released before NEVERMIND and TEN the success of this album helped to pave the way for the future success of Nirvana and Pearl Jam. I have always thought that AIC blew those two bands away with only SOUNDGARDEN coming close to them. I highly recommend this album to serious hard rock fans. AIC is more metal than grunge and this album shows the future promise this band had and prepared us for the future great albums they made. RIP Layne. Every track rocks

When Alice in Chains' debut album Facelift was released in 1990, about a year before Nirvana's Nevermind, the thriving Seattle scene barely registered on the national musical radar outside of underground circles (although Soundgarden's major-label debut, Louder Than Love, was also released that year and brought them a Grammy nomination). That started to change when MTV jumped all over the video for "Man in the Box," giving the group a crucial boost and helping to pave the way for grunge's popular explosion toward the end of 1991. Although their dominant influences - Black Sabbath, the Stooges - were hardly unique on the Seattle scene, Alice in Chains were arguably the most metallic of grunge bands, which gave them a definite appeal outside the underground; all the same, the group's sinister, brooding, suffocating sound resembled little else gaining wide exposure on the 1989 hard rock scene. Neither hedonistic nor especially technically accomplished, Alice in Chains' songs were mostly slow, oppressive dirges with a sense of melody that was undeniable, yet which crept along over the murky sludge of the band's instrumental attack in a way that hardly fit accepted notions of what made hard rock catchy and accessible. Although some parts of Facelift sink into turgid, ponderous bombast (particularly over the erratic second half), and the lyrics are sometimes immature, the overall effect is fresh, exciting, and powerful. While Alice in Chains would go on to do better and more consistent work, Facelift was one of the most important records in establishing an audience for grunge and alternative rock among hard rock and heavy metal listeners, and with its platinum sales certification, it also made Alice in Chains the first Seattle band to break through to a wider, less exclusively underground audience.
