Dirt is one of the best albums of any genre ever.

Jar of Flies is the best EP ever.

Will do, Ciperion. Definitely like the vocals better on it compared to the guy on this after hearing Them Bones.

Ha ha, I heard about the whole banning thing, necrotica. I got a good chuckle out of that quote in the banned user
section. Looks like it might have been worth it, lol.

Sup Ecnal, you should check out Dirt, because even though they're classified as a grunge band, there is a fair bit of variety in Alice's music. I reckon you'll dig it because there's NO ONE IN THE WORLD THAT DOESN'T.

"I reckon you'll dig it because there's NO ONE IN THE WORLD THAT DOESN'T."

Truer words have nary been spoke.

"prog rock here and there"

Pssshhh. Dirt doesn't prog hard enough. Only one timesig through Them Bones? Sure, they try out multiple time sigs in Rain When I Die, but any foo' can switch between 6/4 and 4/4.

What songs does Cantrell sing lead on?

almost all...except 1 or 2 if I recall correctly (DuVall is the lead on "hung on a hook" for sure maybe on phantom i'm not sure). On some songs they sing together or in turn with back up vocals from the other one (title track) but it's Cantrell voice that you hear the most and on several other songs it's almost just Cantrell (low ceiling, hollow, stone, voices...).

DuVall is the lead singer dude, he's the main guy, but the harmonies between him and Cantrell (and Staley and Cantrell) are a big part of Alice's sound.
It's kind of shared, but Cantrell is never really the "lead" on this album.

Technically DuVall is the lead singer of AIC v.2.0, especially when it comes to performing most of their classics where Layne was the lead singer eg. "Man In The Box", "Would" etc.

This tends to differ with their new music though, with Cantrell assuming Staley's role and DuVall filling Cantrell's previous position vocally. And just as Cantrell provided the lead on several of their tracks in their "Layne" era such as "Heaven Beside You", "Over Now" etc, DuVall has also predominantly sung lead on a few of their tracks on the last two albums.

For the most part though, especially on this album their voices seem to harmonize and blend into one, but Cantrell's voice definitely dominates DuVall's, even though DuVall clearly has the superior voice of the two.

True.
@Lloyd : they sing together on most of the tracks (harmonized voices ok) maybe Duvall is the lead singer on the paper but what you can hear most on the last two albums is Cantrell's voice for sure (I don't know what it's like when they are singing live, maybe it's just the mix on the albums) as I said : on low ceiling, scalpel, stone, voices (and I don't remember them all) you can especially hear Cantrell's voice, even if they sing together I don't understand how you can say otherwise.
Duvall sings on hung on a hook (one of my fav), you can hear the difference (at the beginning of the song at least then on the chorus they sing together I think...).

On the topic of AIC and lead singer(s), Jerry Cantrell sums it up best in an interview with "The Canadian Press" with these words - "We’re a team. And we don’t classically have a lead singer. That’s what this band kind of evolved into being. There’s a lot of bands that have more than one voice in rock and roll, and we've kind of modeled ourselves after being that. We do it in our own way".

I dunno man. They're pretty damn consistent. Even their weakest album is a 3.5-4.0, which says a lot about them. AND they wrote and recorded Jar of Flies in 2 weeks, so maybe a song a day is excessive, but a song a week is totally doable.
