Alice in Chains' best album. Haunting, cathartic and full of personality.
on 13 April 2015
Dirt is a terrific album that builds on the heavy doom-drenched grunge style of Facelift and magnifies it to intense levels of heaviness. This album features some of Alice in Chains' most heavy and emotional work like the war anthem 'Rooster' and the gothic 'Angry Chair'. The combination of Layne Staley's tortured growling vocals with Jerry Cantrell's sludgy guitar playing really blends smoothly across every track. Like most people, iI consider this their finest album to date because of its powerful instrumentation and the emotional quality of the songs present.
