Alice In Chains: Jar of Flies

Jar of FliesAh, you gotta love any album that starts with the talk box. The first of Alice in Chains more mellow, acoustic based EPs, this is definitely one to do smack by. Featuring their typical harmonies and dark subject matter, Layne Staley is like the post-apocalyptic Bon Jovi on a couple tracks, crooning above lighter rock ballads, and even throws a little STP in there on the closing track, “Swing On This.” It’s certainly not one of their more consistent albums, but, hey, they’re not really consistent guys now, are they?
