Indeed, Less is more,
This review is from: Sap (Audio CD)
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.
