Biography

Alice in Chains(Formed in 1987, by guitarist Jerry Cantrell bassist Mike Starr, drummer Sean Kinney and Vocalist Layne Staley) is one of the most influential American rock bands in the early 90's. Drawing equally from the heavy riffing of metal and the gloomy strains of post-punk, the band developed a bleak sound that balanced grinding metal riffs with subtly textured acoustic numbers. ...

After "Facelift," Alice In Chains were placed with the Metal/Grunge lable. Considered incredibly depressing, bleak and heavy, that must have made this release all the more surprising.
Next to "Facelift" it's a complete 180 turn. The tunes are soft, melodic and soothing. Still there is the bleakness, but not depressingly so...this whole album has a dreamy overtone that shows their psychedelic influences. Everything here is perfectly structured, the lyrics are wonderful, and even more impressing is the acoustic fill-ins by guitarist/co-songwriter Jerry Cantrell.
Let's go with the songs. "Brother" is very special to me, for various personal reasons, and the lyrics can be interpreted in almost any way to give a sense of hope. "Got Me Wrong," with it's groovy verses and unmistakable chorus, turned out to be one of AIC's biggest radio hits ever, and it's success pushed SAP to gold (and recently platinum) satus. I don't like to pick best songs, espescially with a group as good as Alice In Chains, but if I had to pick one song they did as their best, "Got Me Wrong" would likely be the one. From there is "Right Turn" which features some of the leaders of the Seattle movement...Chris Cornell of Soundgarden and Mark Arm of Mudhoney. The track is as good as any acoustic song AIC has done. And finally, there is "Am I Inside?" written by vocalist Layne Staley, and Cantrell. It's dreamy and coaxing, and must be one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard.
The material here is dark, like I said, but not depressing. The best frame to listen to this is after a hard day, just sit down and enjoy it from start to finish, it really helps you unwind.

The first of two Ep's by alice in chains being 1994's "jar of flies" and 1992's "sap." Both are exceptionaly good, but the crisp/muddy sometimes riffs of there studio meterial is of an absence on here. Except for track 2, "got me wrong" which may very well possibly be one of the most underrated alice in chains tunes in there carrer. The only problem with this is the recording quality, they could of turned up the guitars and the vocals just a tab bit more, but oh well I find that more to be part of the experience.
Only 4 songs, but 5 star tunes. Sap starts off with "brother" with it's highly rythmyic yet sorta erie type vocals from stayley. The only main base electic tune, "got me wrong" is one of the main reason why I bought this, almost as if a b-side to facelift. "right turn" is definetly a treat for grunge fans and AIC fans alike, features chris cornell of soundgarden and mark arm of mudhoney and hearing them all going on the vocals is pretty much musical bliss. The soft and somber "am I inside" is a apt closeing for sap, dark but good. While hidden track #5 is a little out of place, but I find it houmourous.

Alice In Chains accidently outdid themselves here.... SAP, although only having 4 songs, is MUCH better than Jar Of Flies, Tripod, and ranks near Dirt's level..... each song is nearly perfect.... Brother is chilling, and one of my favorite Alice songs ever.... Got Me Wrong IS the greatest AIC song ever..... Right Turn is awe inspiring, and features Chriss Cornell and Mark Arm... Am I Inside is the most creepy song on this album, but it still rocks. Even Love Song (the most annoying song Chains has, only because after I finish listening to SAP for the sixtieth time, an array of belching, sniffing, and flatulence starts playing....Heeeheeeheeee) is great (because it is HILARIOUS!). I've listened to this FOUR SONG EP pretty close to 1,000 times.... more than I've spinned the rest of ALice In Chains' CDs combined (even Dirt). I don't know WHAT attracts me to SAP, but it's one of the masterpieces of music, and it's worth your 9 dollars! BUY IT OR YOU ARE CRAZY!

Unfortunately, Ann Wilson decided to peek her head into this project. This could potentially have been a perfect album, but her vocals take too much away from the songs. Perfect example: Brother. Listen to her harmonizing with Cantrell and then go listen to the Unplugged version where Staley does the harmonizing. There's just no substitute for the Cantrell/Staley formula. Not to knock AIC for trying something new, it just didn't work. Am I Inside is another prime example of this. The harmonizing is at some points so bad that it's hard to listen to.
Now, the good points. Got Me Wrong is one of AIC's best. (The fact that it's on the movie Clerks doesn't hurt either, hehe) Great guitar fill at the beginning which serves as a perfect hook for the rest of the song. Right Turn is great as well. Very simple tune as far as the guitar work goes, but the vocals are what makes this baby shine. When Chris Cornell kicks in at the end, it makes you want to hit the repeat button.
Overall, great great work by Jerry Cantrell on the guitar parts. Mike Starr really didn't get much of an opportunity to shine on the bass in this album, neither did Sean Kinney on drums. Layne of course blows 99% of all other vocalists away as usual. Again, the only real weak point was Ann Wilson on backups. If you can get by that, though, this is a definite addition to an AIC collection.
