This review is from: Dirt (Audio CD)
The Band's second full length album sees a slight departure from their 80s heavy metal influenced debut Facelift. This album brings a sludgier feel with songs like Dam that River and Godsmack delivering the type of heavy riffs that any rock fan dreams of. The band also show their softer side with absolute classics like Down in a Hole and Would? filling the listener with heart warming satisfaction whilst also proving that their song writing capabilities are up there with the best. Not one song on this album fails to satisfy and even the hardest of rock fans, while undoubtedly enjoying the heavier songs, will fall in love with the softer moments on the album. This was the album that brought Alice to my attention, as soon as it was played to me by a friend i knew that this was a band that could quench my thirst for both heavy straight up rock songs and slower more acoustic sounding songs. Layne's voice coupled with Jerry's amazing riffs and Songwriting ability makes any Alice album a must for any fan of rock music and Dirt in particular is a fantastic oppurtunity for anyone to become enlightened as to just how good this band is.
