Well, you know what they say about great minds...Tripod
is actuallly the album I kept losing as well. I've probably owned three copies of it, and the only reason I have it now is because it's on my iPod. I enjoyed Sap
and Jar of Flies
, but they never approached being my favorite. I have have a theory that Alice in Chains has two distinct sets of fans - the heavy fans and the acoustic fans. Both groups tend to like all of their music, or at least tolerate it, but every Alice in Chains fan favors one or the other. I actually owned all of their heavier albums years before I owned the two acoustic ones.
Given you're a Dirt
man, I'm a little surprised your favor the new one over Facelift
All this talk is making me sad Layne is dead. It's making me even more sad that I was supposed to see them in '94, but they dropped out of the tour.
