Alice in Chains - MTV Unplugged

The acoustic arrangements of the harder songs sound like novelties, and the rest sound like rehashes of their previous work, only without much energy. But it hits the hardest when listened all the way through. Before I even dive into this, let me make one statement. Inez has also associated with , , and. The group also participated in the.

They're more than just a beat-keeper, but merely add to the smooth guitars sections pulled off by Cantrell. The acoustic arrangements of the harder songs sound like novelties, and the rest sound like rehashes of their previous work, only without much energy. The show first aired on on May 28, 1996. The opening riff to that song is pure genius, and I never really picked up on it in the studio track. By January 1993 Inez had moved on to his next project. Alice in Chains was a dark, mysterious band to begin with, but something about the going acoustic, just makes it that much more creepy.

He is of Filipino descent. It is sort of sad this was Layne Staley's last hurrah on audio before passing away 6 years later, but in the end it is a reminder of what a fantastic singer he was and the magic he could produce at will with Alice in Chains back in the '90s. Finally - all are wrecked by Layne, who is simply unable to sing properly. The only downfall is that some of them drag on a little too much for this type of performance. Inez also played bass and tambourine on Heart's 2004 album.

Let's get it straight - the only possible reason why you might be interested in this kind of release is to hear how bad a group like Alice in Chains can sound unplugged. Again, it's a case of an album that is designed to attract the band's core audience, which makes it a fairly entertaining effort that is essentially just an official bootleg. The show marked Alice in Chains' first appearance as a five-piece band, adding second guitarist. Without Sean Kinney's advanced playing, it wouldn't be as beautiful sounding. The main singer for the band's tour was.

This record as a whole takes many great tracks, and strips away the extra noise, smoothens them out, and showcases the vocal ability in a fantastic way. At around this time, Inez formed the band with , from , and from. Laynes voice makes this album work. At 71 minutes its a long listen but well worth it. On the topic of vocals, Layne Staley actually sounds great for how he physically was at this time.

Going into this for the first time, I'll admit that I was skeptical due to the fact that I was unsure how some of these heavier tracks were gonna sound unplugged. From the first note to the last it doesnt let up. There's a variety of reasons for their inactivity -- primarily it's due to the health of certain members -- but the lack of concerts made the performance seem special. But it lacks electricity in more ways than one. Sean and Mike provide a solid as usual rhythm section.
