From Villain
Another one of the definitive albums of the grunge era. It serves as sort of a nice palette cleanser in between two heavy records. The first 4 tracks are Alice in Chains classics.

Key tracks: Rotten Apple, Nutshell, No Excuses, I Stay Away

It's incredible how an album goes from incredibly dark, to light and warm feeling, in a matter of a couple songs. Amazing.

From Luigii
This is so wonderful. Somehow, Alice In Chains peeked my interest and this I love. I do know that Dirt as well as Facelift were wilder but when a piece of music is both balances a mellow but also captivating, you will win a special place in my heart.

Another instance of me not being able to pick which release from an artist I like more. Jar of Flies and Dirt are polar opposites, but are companion pieces in the AIC cannon. This record sees AIC plotting the same hopeless marshes, but this time with beautifully depressing acoustic sounds. Being the most metal and sludgy band in the Grunge scene, you wouldnt expect AIC to be able to pull of an acoustic effort with such grace. They go above and beyond

From LordMark
"Rotten Apple" + "Nutshell" + "I Stay Away" + "No Excuses" = arguably the greatest 1-2-3-4 punch on any grunge album.

The acoustic vibe on this album for me represents a revolution in the way the grunge subculture was expressing their feelings. Both the lyrics and the sound are more mature and complex; feels like some grunge teenager just came back from the psychologist and wrote this album after he understood a little better what he was going through.

From Strangel
A stunning step down in tempo. Such a soothing summer's-evening-on-the-verandah sort of album. When I purchased this EP it came as a double CD with the Sap EP which made it a complete LP-type experience for me. One the very best of the 90s.

My favorite EP of all time and my favorite of Alice In Chains. I enjoy this so much, every gorgeous acoustic track fits the mood perfectly. And all it really is is a bunch of guys that play alternative metal/grunge (and the elements are indeed still present here, in a good way) picking up acoustic guitars and seeing what happens. Wonderful. Nutshell gives me chills every time I hear it.... so good.

An acoustic EP, that contains the best songs AIC ever made.
