"We'll play motivation here..."
12 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Alice in Chains were one of the few bands to come out of the Seattle grunge music scene that didn't have to cater themselves to that crowd. While they had songs that rocked to a Heavy-Metal edge (Them Bones, Again, What the Hell Have I), they had a elegiac side that seemed akin to Neil Young. In this unplugged special (one of the last times the group appeared on-stage before Lane Staley's death last year) they show their softer side (Brother, Rooster, Down in a Hole), while still playing a few of the favorites (Angry Chair, Would, Got me Wrong), and giving the audience rightly what they need- good, solid musicianship, and emotional vocals from the late Staley. Die-hard Chains fans will see this as chilling as Nirvana fans see that Unplugged show, and that gives it importance all its own. But as a show in and of itself, it's worth it for any fan of rock music, hard or even folk. Listen in for the little diddies Jerry and the boys whip up in between some of the songs.
