Alice In Chains - Man In The Box

Band:  Alice In Chains
Song:  Man In The Box
Album:  Facelift
Genre:  Grunge
Language:  Mild

The vocal work on this song always gives me chills when it kicks in.  Layne Staley is such a fantastic vocalist, but unfortunately he fell victim to the problem that hit a lot of singers in Grunge bands.  He died of a heroin overdose.

They have some songs that kinda showcase what he was struggling with.  Songs like Sludge Factory, Hate To Feel, and Junkhead showcase a lot of what he was going through.  Just one of those things, ya know, there's always some sort of sign.  Of course, this was one of the kings of the Grunge scene, realistically he wasn't about to stop.  But hey, food for thought.

Always loved this song though.  It's really chunky in the way the drums and rhythm guitar groove together, and then when the vocals hit singing along with the lead guitar it just becomes that much better.  Check it out.
