revolutionary how


I'm talking about the level to which Layne is harmonizing with himself on this. Pretty much everything was triple tracked and combined with various effects to distort and shape the vocals into something completely unique. It was unlike any other band in the genre's albums, including AIC's previous ones.

This is an alright album, it isn’t great but then again it certainly isn’t bad.


greatest sentence in a sputnik review ever


also this album has gotten better to me as I've grown older, it's basically on the same level as Facelift for me at this point

I really need to write up a review for this, such an underrated gem. I've listened to this album hundreds of times and it still feels elusive, like there's something new to discover at every listen.

Layne may sound bored but I think that's part of the charm, very eery and it's a true reflection of how he felt. Again is one of the better tunes on this but ya could have a little more uuuuumph to it

This album seems to be AIC's most challenging and strangest effort, as it very rarely sounds like anything the band had recorded beforehand. Gone is the crushing heaviness of 'Dirt' and the rough rawness of the band's debut album, making way for a sludgier, more depressing sound that, although never quite works as well as it should, is quite often satisfying. 'Heaven beside you' and interestingly upbeat closer 'Over now' both work well with their acoustic guitar-led structures, and even the sludgy nature of both 'Sludge Factory' and 'Frogs' offer a particularly laid-back feel, at times even begging to hypnotize the listener all the more. Such a shame that this was the last AIC album to feature vocalist Layne Stanley before his death.
