Speaking of Alice in Chains, Jar of Flies may be the single finest album to emerge from the whole "grunge" scene.

Rotten Apple
Nutshell
I Stay Away
No Excuses
Don't Follow

Replace Swing on This with either Got Me Wrong or Brother and you have one the finest albums ever, in my opinion.

The only song I know from Jar of Flies is I Stay Away. And I love that one! Will have to grab this one sometime.

Get both Flies and Sap, together they make one of the best albums of the 90's.

Why do I not know what "Sap" is? I have Jar of Flies and love it, like Dirt too.

Sap is an EP that was released shortly after Facelift. It consists of 5 tracks, 2 of which are stunning and 1 of which is complete frivolity.

me and my 'homeboys' loved those Seattle bands, the original wave anyways, and everyone of us, to a man, liked Nirvana the least. Oh and we all live in the same town as Wayne Coyne, so he's actually our homeboy, literally.


ALice in Chains, Dirt, Sap and Jar of Flies are better than anything released by Nirvana. Soundgarden, I'd say at least BMF and Superunknown were better than anything Nirvana released and Louder Than Love and Down on the Upside were at least in the ballpark.

It's the same principles in those who glorify Janis Joplin and Jim MOrrison. Had they lived to be 40, 45 and embarassed themselves 5 times over, their 'legacy' would be a lot different.

All that said, Bleach, In Utero and Nevermind, even the unplugged record are all great. I mean, truly great not 'White Stripes great' or whatever. What I mean is, it's been 15 years in large part, 14 since In Utero and the music still stand the test of time, there are even some excellent songs on Incesticide. Point being, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised when someone who finds bands such as White Stripes or the Strokes great, to not 'get' Nirvana. Much in the same way maybe I never got the punk movement until I was maybe 22 or 23. It's a bit generational and nostalgic and all of that. The songs speak for themselves,

Cobain had some songs. Overrated? No doubt. Great? Same answer.
