Boogy Depot is a favorite. I looove it....DT is another great one, but it took me a while to get it, its super sludgy and depressing sometimes...but its full of great moments.

This is the first solo album were the band is also running, so its going to be interesting to see what Jerry brings.

New favorites from Rainier Fog (love this album - feels like a classic AIC record for me) :

Drone
Red Giant

I finally got to see AIC in Bristow 2019 - opening for Korn meh. But one of the bartender's hooked me up w/ a doublejack & coke. Good times.

Listening to a Jerry solo boot from 2001, damn he sounded awesome...some of the songs from Degradation Trip are a monster live.

On April 10, 1996, Alice in Chains resurfaced to perform their first concert in two and a half years for MTV Unplugged, a program featuring all-acoustic set lists. The band was offered to do the segment numerous times prior to the actual taping before finally accepting. The show was recorded at the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Majestic Theatre and first aired on MTV on May 28, 1996. It was Layne Staley's idea to have big candles decorating the stage to keep it dark and moody, as the band never liked bright lights on stage, so Staley himself bought the candles at Seattle's Pike Place Market.

The performance was one of Alice in Chains' final appearances with vocalist Layne Staley and featured some of the band's highest charting singles, including "Rooster", "Down in a Hole", "Heaven Beside You", and "Would?", and introduced a new song, "The Killer Is Me". The show marked Alice in Chains' first appearance as a five-piece band, adding second guitarist Scott Olson.

Jerry Cantrell has attested to being fairly ill during the performance as a result of food poisoning from a hot dog consumed before the gig. Mike Inez's bass had the phrase "Friends Don't Let Friends Get Friends Haircuts..." written on it, directed at the members of Metallica who were in the audience and had recently cut their hair short. Inez and drummer Sean Kinney did pay tribute to Metallica, however, playing the intro to their hit song "Enter Sandman" just before "Sludge Factory". Before "Angry Chair," Jerry Cantrell paid further tribute by playing the intro to "Battery" going into the Hee Haw song, "Gloom, Despair, and Agony on Me". This was omitted from the CD but can be found on the VHS and DVD. On the CD version of the MTV Unplugged concert, as Staley says "Okay, that's it," at the end of the song, booing can be heard (presumably due to the performance concluding). Staley responded to the heckler by shouting, "Hey, fuck you, man!" which was greeted by laughter from the audience.

Cantrell said that one of his favorite things from the concert was when Staley said at the end of the show, "I wish I could hug you all, but I'm not gonna".

So apparently Jerry is releasing a solo album this year. Can't wait, both Boggy Debot and Degradation Trip are awesome: https://www.blabbermouth.net/news/jerry ... olo-album/

I kinda thought AiC was Jerry’s solo project since they reformed. It’s the same sound. I guess he doesn’t have to split the dough now.

Will write too for AIC. and Sean and Mike also....even if they dont write they still make contributions.
This song feels more like a mix between the country side of Boggy Depot and the metal side of DT.

Also.....Man, Cold Piece from BD is fuckin good.

The new song is alright I guess, but I really could live without the 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly' thing.

one of the things i liked the most was that feeling and specially that look on the video.

Also, Jerry kinda hints that the new album has a lot of that vibe with country too, and i cant wait for that.

That sounds like Jerry Cantrell ripping off Days Of The New ripping off Alice In Chains.

I love it.

The drums on that track are pretty great.
