Cataloguing My Metal Collection Pt. 81
ORIGIN: Seattle, WA (United States)
LABEL: Columbia Records
GENRE: Grunge/Heavy Metal (Acoustic)
FAVORITE SONG: "Would?"
NOTES: I was skeptical about this one before I got it. I had seen the MTV special, but I was not sure I wanted the album or not. The fact of the matter is though that some of Alice in Chains's songs really translate well to the acoustic guitar. It would have been bizarre for the band to play "Man in the Box", "Them Bones", or some of their other heavier stuff, so they stuck to the more mellow stuff, and it worked quite well. Staley's voice really conveys a lot of pain that he was going through at the time.
