1992, the year of Alice in chains. With Nirvana, Rage against the machine, blind melon and others coming out with amazing albums, Alice in chains and their album, 'Dirt' stood above for the experienced listener.
A change in pace for the band, mainly focusing on glam metal and pseudo-'Pop rock'. Dirt came as a delicious surprise with a more dark rock, metal sound. Songs like 'Would?' and 'Them Bones' surged up in the charts while other, more personal songs like 'Rooster', 'Down in a Hole' and 'Junk Head', saw a surprising amount of radio-play.
A lot of the songs on the album focus on heavy drug use, a common topic in the 'Alice in Chains' catalog. Fans will argue whether or not this album was their "sell-out-album" because of the amount of singles and music videos. One thing is for sure, this album is the hardest and arguably the best 'Alice in Chains' will ever put out.
Fans of 'Alice in Chains' need to pick up this album, you won't regret it.
