THE BEST OF ALICE IN CHAINS, the band which has lived twice

 

Alice in Chains is a band which has lived twice. After the hiatus, the issues realated to drug abuses and the tragedy that has struck the band in a crucial moment of their career, the guys from Seattle were able to emerge from their ashes and find a way to overcome the loss of their iconic lead singer Layne Staley. As a matter of fact, within the family of the legendary bands that marked the golden age of grunge at the end of the last century, Alice in Chains are among the very few which managed to maintain their status until today, and this is mainly because of the objectively high level of quality of the music that they have continued to produce and release even after the peak of their career.

This year the band has released a new LP, Rainier Fog, the sixth full-lenght studio album of their discography, the third with William DuVall as co-lead vocalist and guitarist. In some way this record marks a sort of milestone in the band’s history: 3 albums with Layne Stayley and 3 albums without.

In order to celebrate this special chapter in the career of Alice in Chains I decided to make a compilation with all my favorite songs from their impressive production. The mixtape features 18 songs which cover a timespan from 1990 to 2018.

The complete playlist of the compilation is the following:

  • Rainier Fog
  • Check My Brain
  • Again
  • Grind
  • Pretty Done
  • Them Bones
  • A Looking In View
  • Rain When I Die
  • Down In A Hole
  • Get Born Again
  • Angry Chair
  • Hollow
  • So Far Under
  • We Die Young
  • Would
  • Nutshell
  • Brother
  • Black Gives Way To Blue

I’m sure you will enjoy this selection of songs, and please feel free to write me for any comment on the playlist or if you are interested to get the file of the mixtape (which is also good for running). Long life to Alice in Chains!
