Degradation Trip by Jerry Cantrell - The path less traveled by
on May 25, 2014
As a long time AIC fan, I got curious about Jerry Cantrell's solo projects.
This full version of his 2nd project is, as described by Cantrell, a sort of autobiography, a view of his own life. I won't go on about the content of the songs - it's been documented and discussed in plenty of media reports.
I will say this, though: If you're into the heavier side of rock and looking for a sound that's fresh, diverse and compelling, beautiful melodies, awesome musicainship and wonderful, honest, dark and sometimes cynical lyrics, this is a record you should definitely buy.
Yes, it's over 1.5 hours long, but I for one cannot stop listening to it and every time I do, it just flies by.
Thank you, Jerry, for not giving up and even mortgaging your house in order to publish this record. It became one of my favorites. I think it deserves way more recognition than it got.
