Alice In Chains - Dirt (2009 Re-Issue)
Alice in Chains, one of the darkest bands to emerge from Seattle in the early 90's. Their 1992 album Dirt was a milestone in the grunge-genre. Tuned down guitars with massive gloomy vocals courtesy of guitarist Jerry Cantrell and enigmatic vocalist Layne Staley proved a killer combination.
Dirt is one of those masterpieces that wasn't meant to be, as it was written while the band was on tour only to let their demons out. After extensive tours with Ozzy Osbourne and Van Halen the album ended in the top 10 of Billboard. The album closes with the superb grunge anthem "Would?" which was also featured in the movie Singles. Around the time Tricky emerged as a solo artist, independent of the Massive Attack collective, he was asked to describe his music. "If you want to dance to it, go ahead. If you want to sit in a darkened room and let it fill your head with strange thoughts, that's fine too".
