So, I went through a rediscovery period with these guys about a year ago and found that I really, really like just about everything they did pre-reunion (no comment on that stuff; I've heard zero good things but haven't listened for myself yet). Dirt is pretty much AIC 101--I won't say I love every track, but this record is their essence, imitated by dozens, and probably contains more immediately satisfying songs than any other record they made. The self-titled is a dense, complex work that repays attentive listening--the harmonies in particular, both between Staley and Cantrell and between the vocal melodies and chords, are among the most innovative and unusual I've ever heard, a high watermark for music theory within the grunge niche. Both EPs (Jar of Flies especially) are essential. Not a bad song on either one. Anyway, I'm playing bits and pieces of all of it today and thought I'd make a thread.
