    Nice! I'm really impressed with how Jerry has been able to carry on and make quality alums over the years.

    The two songs they've released so far are pretty much what I want out of an AIC album in 2018. The Devil put dinosaurs here was a little too all over the place as an album, you have sludge/metal songs like Phantom Limb, Hollow, and Stone, and then out of nowhere there is a borderline country song like Scalpel or a pop rock song like Low Ceiling. These songs seem a bit more focused, like the follow up to Black gives way to Blue that I was hoping TDPDH would have been.

    Read that Duvall actually wrote So Far Under and actually does the solo.

    I'm kind of luke warm on both of those songs, but I will still buy the album to support the band.

    It's Alice In Chains when have they ever released a full length album that has just settled into just one genre Black Gives Way to Blue didn't. TDPDH was a nice mix of songs without too much of the songs being drowned out with too much over playing.

    I think Enter Sandman is the best of the four, and I think I like it more than the original lol.

    I guess I'm an "old music" snob. None of their new stuff can compare, in my mind, to their best 90's material.

    there's a few new songs I like Your Decision, When the Sun Rose Again, Private Hell, All Secrets Known, Breath On a Window, Voices, but for the most part I feel the same. I'd probably like a few more if Jerry could refrain being so damn crunchy with his playing just on a couple of the songs it drowns out the singing.

    Sounds like Alice in Chains

    I can't listen to that shit though. Obviously its just not the same without Layne

    It definitely isn't the same, but it is still a solid rock band. I will continue to support them.

    Really don't understand people like this. Were you ONLY a fan of Layne? No respect for Jerry at all?
