5.0 out of 5 stars Dark and disturbing, July 17, 2001
This review is from: Dirt (Audio CD)
C'mon people when Layne asks the question : What's my drug of choice in the song Junkhead were we really surprised to hear him answer: well what have you got? This is just a sample of the dark and tormented cries you'll be subjected to while hearing this recording, I think I'm right to say it was the darkest album of the decade, maybe ever. Dirt gives you everything a great rock or metal record should : amazing guitar work, powerful drum beats and that pounding bass. Layne's voice is unique (just like OZzy's heh heh) and listening to him sing about his heroin addiction song after song touches me deeply and it hurts. The album opener is Them Bones, a heavy track that will get you banging your head in no time, followed by Damn that River another great tune, hold on a sec this album is about to get awhole lot darker. Rain when I die, Sickman, Rooster, Junhead just by reading the titles you know these guys have hurt especially Layne. These guys cam write great songs, just listen to an extract from such songs as Down in a hole :"See my heart I decorate it like a grave", very haunting yet distrubingly beautiful and poetic. Listening to Dirt is even sadder nowadays, Layne's ongoing heroin abuse continued and later on destroyed the band, wich makes the irony of Would? (the album's closer) even greater. The final track asks a simple question, is response to Layne's :"Have I run too far to get home? "(during Would?) my answer is yes, and every AIC fan wishes you the best of luck.
