Alice In Chains - Unplugged (1996) Retail CD
This is a very special album. MTV's unplugged series continues with the band that seemed very unlikely to lend itself to this format. Strip away the production, special effects and heavy instrumentation of the albums and suddenly the mastery of Alice in Chains music is laid bare. This album is easily as surprising and involving as the Nirvana Unplugged session. It certainly is not as viceral as most of the studio albums and reflects most closely the Sap EP, it is however as loaded with angst, frustration and pain as the original album recordings, if not more so. It has been said on another reviewmore… that Layne was drugged up to the eyeballs to do this recording, this problem was an issue throughout his career and eventually (and sadly) took his life. His off stage lifestyle and depresive mindset coloured his music and is a big part of why AIC's music was so heartwrenchingly effective. This live set is no different to that of the albums in that sense. This session in my opinion, like that of Nirvana MTV appearence, affirms the bands mastery of songcraft and is a fitting tribute to a dearly missed man whos music will live on in the powerful and classic albums that he left behind.
