Dirt English Dirt. Finnish Korean. Even without Staley's iconic voice, Black Gives Way to Blue is classic Alice in Chains; it's a heavy listen aesthetically and atmospherically, drawing greatly from Jerry Cantrell's sometimes in tandem with DuVall sludgy guitar riffs.
The latter is the more aggressive of the pair and features DuVall at the forefront, barking his angriest lines on the album.
Not all tracks are reliant on heaviness; the layered guitars in "All Secrets Known" allow the track to retain the group's heat-choked atmosphere while adopting a melodic flair and "Acid Bubble" is a depressing, slow building number reminiscent of "Rooster". Don't get me wrong, Black Gives Way to Blue isn't an excellent album merely because it sees Alice in Chains return to the fray for the first time in fourteen years.
It is a legitimately excellent record that lives up to and sometimes even exceeds the song writing standards set by the band on Dirt or Jar of Flies ; case in point, the likes of "A Looking in View" and "When the Sun Rose Again" can be mentioned alongside some of the strongest material in their career.
But the fact that Alice in Chains has released an album in is worth getting excited over. And Black Gives Way to Blue doesn't disappoint. Tweet Recent reviews by this author.
