AIC Unplugged- great
9 June 2003 | by (Springfield,Missouri) – See all my reviews

In a dim room, filled with candles and lava lamps, sings Layne Staley, his voice wavering on high notes and the climax in a song, and Jerry Cantrell, with his guitar, taking over the vocals at times, helping Layne to remember some lyrics. Layne is clearly suffering from drug addiction,showing from his weak voice and black eyelids, barely opening. On the best songs his voice is like what it used to be, deep and strong,like on 'Rooster', a tale made by Jerry Cantrell on his Vietman vet father, but that is not most. The show reveals a new song, never released on a CD, filled with melachony and endlessness. But there comes to hopeful and lighter songs, like 'No Excuses' and 'Heaven Beside You', which relieve you of the burden of such heavy songs before. When in the beginning of 'Sludge Factory' Mike Inez and the drummer play the beginning of 'Enter Sandman', the band joke around, and when the credits roll in the end, Layne shouts to the crowd, "I just want to hug you all!", they bring a small sense of hope, which is what everyone needs. Since I'm a huge AIC fan, and I enjoyed this a lot, I give this 10/10.
