    Album came out and when I was a freshman in high school. I loved it then but haven't listened to it for a long time. I decided to buy some new workout music and grab this and it is awesome. Jerry Cantrell's tone is absolutely amazing.

    This was my favorite, front to back. Everybody always chooses dirt, but u can't st through that entire mass of super sludgey guitars.

    Love the album. We die Young may be my favorite album opening riff. Crushing.

    Yeah, that album doesn't even give you a chance to get warmed up. It just kicks your ass right from the very first chord.

    I always thought "just can't put you down" should have been a big hit. (I think I have the song name correct).

    I've come to like "Sunshine" more than ever in recent years.

    I got the album in 1990 when It came out. Just found the old cd in a drawer yesterday and put it in the car on the way to work. Coincidence?

    The black and white video from 1990 was one of the best live shows/videos of any band I've ever seen.

    Yea, I think I watched it until the tape wore out. I remember it was free if you bought the Cassette, so I bought the Cassette and the CD.

    Yes the beginning of the 90's started August 21, 1990. I was probably late to the party because I was sooooo sick of hair metal by then I'm sure I missed it.
    Outstanding band

    I think it was a Bogner Fish preamp.

    Frigging great album! Love it! The tones and riffs are HUGE! It has a little more of a '80s vibe than Dirt. But still amazing.

    Jerry didnt have a bogner until Dirt. He couldnt afford it. He did, however use a Marshall JCM 800 that was worked on by R Bogner.

    My favorite AIC album. Rediscovered it a few months ago. Layne was so underrated. The way he belts out Love, Hate, Love ... amazing. And he replicated it every night. Jerry taught me vibrato ... he used it so often ... his skill is usually overlooked because its "just grunge".

    Jerry is largely what inspired me as a kid. And Layne wow. Unbeatable.
