ALICE IN CHAINS / Music Bank: Disc 1 (1999)

Nirvana were chosen by the media as the face of the Seattle grunge sound but AIC wrote better songs, with deeper content.  Fuck Nirvana.  Up the Chains!  This collection was for diehard fans and was both supremely awesome and slap in the face insulting.  It includes demos and unreleased stuff alongside previous album material; the demos are great but the album stuff we’d already bought (more than once!).  Disc 1 has one new track, some demos, six tracks from Facelift (1990) and two from Sap (1992).  The music is what I’m scoring, regardless of where it originated and on that note, it’s all good.  All of it.  Why?  Because it’s AIC.

Songs of Note: Get Born Again; Rooster (demo)

4 it came in a pretty little box out of 5
