This is an awesome album. It is by no means happy (not even close), but it is wonderful. My favorite thing about Alice in Chains are those beautiful, haunting harmonies between lead singer Layne Staley (RIP) and guitarist Jerry Cantrell.This album has great riff after great riff, and the musicianship is great throughout the album. This is an essential album for fans of Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Mudhoney, and the like. If you think Alice in Chains is only "Man in the Box", then check this out. You won't be disappointed-unless, of course, you can't handle it. And yes, most of the songs are about heroin. But for fans of heavy music, this is a must buy.
