Editorial Review

In an era when pop nihilism fulfilled its dark promise all too regularly, Pearl Jam not only survived, but thrived to become one of rock's greatest bands. This 33-track double-disc career retrospective documents the arc of a career that went from arena and radio triumphs in the early 90's (while Nirvana's promise imploded in the wake of hype, Pearl Jam's crowd-pleasing fame only burgeoned) to the uncompromising, core audience-focused tack that carried the band into the 21st century. Shrewdly compiled by the band into an "Up" disc that chronicles the band's driving, Stone Gossard-Mike McCready fueled hard rock dramatics (including such early career landmarks as "Jeremy," "Alive" and "Even Flow" alongside more aggressive fare like "Go" and "Spin the Black Circle") and a "Down" side that focuses more on Eddie Vedder's brooding, often darkballads ("Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town," "Yellow Ledbetter," their unlikely hit cover of the oldie "Last Kiss"), it's a collection that underscores both the band's range and musical integrity. Though centered largely on the band's pre-Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best pearl Jam
It's as it's title... rearviewmirroring there hits, you can listen to how they have evolved during time in there different songs... and listen to all your favorite songs in one album... it's divided between harder and softer songs... very good compilation work.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good
If you like Pearl Jam, this is an album you need to own.I am very much enjoying it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Definitely the best of Pearl Jam
This 2 disc collection is absolutely awesome. I was a HUGE PJ fan in the early 90's when they burst on the scene, but as I got older I drifted away from them. I've recently rediscovered them and wow, what a set! My favorite PJ tunes are here, and they flow great. Yellow Ledbetter, Alive, Even Flow, Dissident, Black to name a few.I'm listening to it now as I write this review, and feeling rather nostalgic. Some great times with Pearl Jam as part of the soundtrack!

Hi!I was Kurt Cobain.You know, I found that when you try to kill yourself, drugs are just not a sure shot method.That's why when I killed myself, I used the new Remington Sure Kill Suicider Shotgun!It has been specially designed for those of us who want to take our own lives.And it is guaranteed to do it in a gutsy, macho manner that will leave your brain splattered all over for that really cool image!The suicider features a short barrel with no stock to get in the way, a reversed trigger that is easy to operate, and a special soft foam rubber mouth grip attached to the barrel end.Not only is the mouth grip comfortable to use (no more biting down on cold metal), but it also ensures that the bullet will do the most damage possible while still leaving your teeth and jaw intact so that you will be a great looking corpse!So if you're thinking seriously about suicide and want to end your life, run down to your local gun dealer and pick up the new Remington Suicider today!IT WILL BLOW YOU AWAY!!!And it makes a great CHristmas gift for that suicidal season...

Editorial Review

If its debut album 15 years ago made Pearl Jam apprehensive with success, the Seattle quintet better buckle in for a return to eminence. On its eighth studio release--and first since 2002--the band socks away the adventurous experimentation that dogged some of its most recent records to investigate a post-September 11, war-ravaged world overflowing with urgency and significance. "It's the same everyday in a hell manmade/What can be saved, and who will be left to hold her?" lead singer Eddie Vedder wonders in "World Wide Suicide," one of several contemptuous rants on the Bush administration. Yet the album's spark is more than political. Songs like "Life Wasted," "Comatose" and "Big Wave" embrace the garage-rock past, as guitarists Mike McCready and Stone Gossard play off each other with the primal lucidity of a decade ago and drummer Matt Cameron, one of rock's best, adds raw backing vocals to Vedder's polished craft. But Pearl Jam also turns up some of its most harmonious works since "Daughter," including "Marker in the Sand," with its radio-ready chorus, the tuneful "Parachutes" paced by Gossard's divine strumming, and the burning narrative and Urge Overkill punch of "Umemployable." Finally Vedder pleads for a lover's return in "Come Back," a keyboard-soaked love song complete with a chilling Gossard solo. It's got a soulfulness that begs for Sam Cooke to sing it and an originality that shows that a vibrant and cocksure Pearl Jam is back in town--and ready to retake the world. Read more

Reviewgium - Volume I, issue IX
4-0 out of 5 stars PJ continues to be iconic and the top of their craft...
Pearl Jam has been misunderstood for so long.They keep popping out music and people say that you have to have an acquired taste for their music.Other people compare every record to "Ten."However, my belief is that each CD that they pop out is a vision of how they see things during that period and they try to be innovators in their business, which sometimes does not produce a radio friendly CD.However I do not recall any bad CDs and despite negative reviews of some past CDs Pearl Jam has the star power to sell out any venue on a moments notice despite their "lack of radio friendly" tracks.This CD is spectacular.As said by the catalog reviewers, they go back to basics with a garage band sound with hard guitar duets, bumping drums, thumping base and of course a voice that is unrivaled in that of Vedder.Each song is great, multi-layered, message sending and relevant.Whatever your political views are, and mine are not in sync with PJ, you have to love the art of their music.This is one of their best CDs.There are not many groups that can give you multi-layers within each song, usually its song and chorus, but PJ gives us more where it makes you feel like you are getting so much more from each song.There is no real experimenting on this CD what has been sited as a flaw on past CDs.I like every song, most are high energy, just a couple ballads and some of those turn from ballads into a full on attack as momentum builds within the song.I am especially fond of "Inside Job" as it is a complex song showcasing the talents of the entire band and their range as musicians.

4-0 out of 5 stars Album of the Year?
Pearl Jam, to me, have always been an interesting band to listen to. They became a household name with their smash debut album Ten and their sophomore album Vs. But ever since then, it seems like they've been shying away from the spotlight. It's not that they didn't have hits - as "Better Man", "Who You Are", "Last Kiss", and "Given to Fly" were all chart-climbers - but they are nonetheless significantly less famous than they used to be. Perhaps this gives them the room to try out many of the new things they have been with their albums. Nonetheless, as this album proves, Pearl Jam show that they can rock out now just as good as they used to, but with perhaps even more passion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Kurts Finest hour
I was rather sceptical on buying this album since I already had the session on tape but being the huge Nirvana fanatic that I am I decided to purchess this album anyway. This is very easily one of the finest live albums ever recorded, not only does it capture the bands sound in a whole new light but it also captures Kurt Cobain as a performer at his most vulranble and bare best.
5-0 out of 5 stars My Girl - Where Did you Sleep Last Night
This entire album bears the soul of Kurt Cobain, as did most of his work.However the last song, Where Did You Sleep Last Night is a dying persons testimony to a system that is demented.Take a look at the video.Its like the remenants of his soul went into the ending of this song.

5-0 out of 5 stars WORLD-CLASS
I've never been much of a fan of "Alternative" music but this album is stunning. The band really shows everyone they are real musicians and artists. Kurt Cobain was a powerhouse of an entertainer and an open channel of emotion. This album is a fitting farewell.

2-0 out of 5 stars er.... I don't think I like it
I proudly proclaim Veruca Salt to be my favourite band of all time (with or without Nina)and have come to adore all of their music in all it's variety and uniqueness...even Nina's off-spin albums... I'm confused, then, that I don't think I like this album at all! Where are the belting hooks? Where is the clever crafted angst? Where are the lyrics that suprise and challenge you? Where is Louise's beautiful voice souring above the din? "You've got me running but I can't see you coming, baby" ...???? Every time I try and listen to it I can't help skipping through the songs hoping the next will be better.I do like "So weird".Sort of.Sorry Veruca Salt... I still love you.But I think I must be getting old.

5-0 out of 5 stars Let me clarify the negative reviews....
Don't even bother reading the negative reviews because they are not genuine opinions, but rather emotions fueled by Nina Gordon's departure from the band. I don't know why people continue to take their anger out on Louise for continuing to rock, Nina is the one that left us. I've been a fan of Veruca Salt since the beginning and this album is just as good as any other. Don't be fooled or skeptical.
5-0 out of 5 stars I can't stop listening to it
I've been a fan of Veruca Salt from the beginning, and right now this is my favorite of their albums.Louise Post is a total rock goddess, and her vocals are even stronger and more nuanced than before.I'm finding lately that when people are talking to me, I'm pretending to listen, but really singing Louise's lyrics (from IV) in my head. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Good debut
Every once in a while, an alternative rock band comes along and proves to me that no, rock did NOT die along with John Lennon. Nirvana, R.E.M., Coldplay, U2 and the Red Hot Chili Peppers have already done so. Well, add Pearl Jam to the list! 2-0 out of 5 stars Best album of the 90's? Yeah right.
The music here itself is OK at best. The guitarring is not bad, though nothing special, but certainly decent. The bass and the drums are average. But the songwriting here sucks big donkey balls as the album is incredibly slow and dull. Trust me, I tried to like this but there isnt a singe song on this CD I could listen without hitting either the skip or the stop button. It's a lot better than Nirvana though. But it's still not that good. The vocals here are just plain awful, and so are the lyrics. As Eddie Vedder sounds like some dog on crack. I don't know, is Eddie trying to appeal to some bunch of nerds who can't get over the fact that grunge is dead or what? Okay, I'll give it that, the solo on Alive is pretty good, even great but other than that there is absolutely nothing I can recommend it for. Maybe for a cure for insomnia this will be good though.

5-0 out of 5 stars A glimpse of Lane Staley's world.
Despite popular opinion, neither Nirvana nor Pearl Jam were the best band to emerge from the early-nineties Seattle music scene.That was Soundgarden.Likewise, neither of those bands produced the era's best album.That was Dirt.
5-0 out of 5 stars Pure classic from the early 90's
Of the four great bands from Seattle, Alice In Chains are easily the darkest and heaviest. Though they have been lumped into the "grunge" category, the band actually formed in the mid-80's, releasing their debut album a year before Nirvana's Nevermind. Without getting into unnecessary comparisons between the two bands, upon Nevermind's significant breakthrough in early 90's music, Alice In Chains' label also started to promote them as an alternative band. That said, musically they are worlds apart. While carrying some of the genre's characteristics, Alice In Chains encompasses deeper musical thought, utilising heavy fretwork and delving fearlessly into the path paved by Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin in the 1970's. 5-0 out of 5 stars "Empty Eyes and Dead-End Stares"
I first heard Alice in Chains 'Dirt' on a compilation album called 'Dad, I Blew Up America' that featured two tracks off 'Dirt', namely 'Rooster' and 'Hate to Feel'. It was 'Hate to Feel' that I particularly liked a lot so the album was a natural purchase and I can tell you I was not disappointed. Alice in Chains' always sounded like a mix of Black Sabbath's 'Paranoid' and Led Zeppelin's I & II and it's on 'Dirt' that they achieved that to near perfection while still sounding original. They should have called this their 'Greatest Hits' because all the songs are classics on Dirt. The thing that makes this record great is it's simplicity, there's nothing ostentatious or vague about it musically or lyrically. Musically it's rhythmically solid, bare, sometimes discordant and atonal and lyrically, direct, poignant and somewhat gleeful in it's delivery. The theme running through the record for the most part is that of drug taking, in particular Heroin, and it's in this quagmire that the dirt is delivered. 'Dirt' spoke on behalf of Generation X when it scaled the charts in 1992 helped along by the success of Nirvana and Soundgarden that swept away the glut of rubbish that clogged the rock charts before it. The early nineties was for a brief spell an exciting time for rock and say what you like about the so-called 'grunge scene' it produced its fair share of what will become classic records and it's undeniable that 'Dirt' was instrumental in building on the rock legacy for generations to come. It's an excellent album and a worthy addition to any collection, buy it if you don't already own it. ... Read more

I find it strange that some people only got the first 15 of the 18 tracks. I only bought "The Buzz" (not Non Stop 90's Rock) and I got all 18 tracks. I would have been fine without the last three, anyway.

If you were in the 90s with me and remember a lot of these songs you will love this CD! It has everything you want plus more. With the awsome songs like far behind by candle box and closing time by semisonic, its a great CD to relax to or drive fast and blaring the radio. If you love 90s rock, you will love this CD!

5-0 out of 5 stars Whether you like it or not, this is a classic.
The CliffsNotes version - ragtag Seattle band Nirvana unleash an album with a naked baby on the cover to the public, a video does well on MTV and suddenly there's a new style of mainstream music to exploit. Before you can say "I'm gonna break my rusty cage," a slew of imitators immediately came in the wake of the initial hoopla. The biggest band of this first wave of the newly-coined "grunge" movement was Stone Temple Pilots.
4-0 out of 5 stars The "Core" of this band
Amidst a sea of grunge and alternative music, STP rocked.Some of the best known-hits were "Wicked Garden" "Plush" and "Sex Type Thing."On the lighter side of things, "Creep" got it's share of well-deserved air-play too."Sin" "Naked Sunday" & "Crackerman" were some others with a driving rock sound.
4-0 out of 5 stars One of the great albums of the grunge era (4.5 stars)
The Stone Temple Pilots released their debut album, Core, in 1992. At the time, the grunge movement was in full swing as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Alice in Chains had become superstars. Some fans and critics were taking a lot of shots at Stone Temple Pilots, claiming that the band had jumped on the grunge bandwagon. However, many more music fans ignored these accusations and concentrated on the music. Although the band's sound certainly resembled their grunge counterparts, Stone Temple Pilots' songs had more hooks and were catchier. The fact that many of the songs still get regular airplay on modern rock stations is a testament to the strength of their music. Although future albums such as Purple and Tiny Music...Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop respectively would show the band expanding their musical horizons, Core remains their most enduring and consistent album with a few songs becoming staples of the grunge genre.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow, withstood time so far
For me a classic is an album you can listen to 10 years later and still be interested and challenged by it.Siamese Dream passes that test for me.It's a rollicking rock album with such a distinctive Pumpkins sound.I appreciate Billy Corgan's artistic integrity and demand to change and grow their sound, but, IMHO, it never got better than this album.Mellon Collie was excellent as well, but this is the epitome of the pumpkins' sound.
5-0 out of 5 stars PERFECT FROM START TO FINISH
I don't think this album could have been any better. Heavy distortion, crazy high-pitched solos, and loud pounding drums all come together perfectly for 13 amazing songs. There is not one song on this cd that I can skip over, it's just incredible.

5-0 out of 5 stars AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is absolutely one of my favorite albums of all time.No kidding.

3-0 out of 5 stars This wound up making me fall on black days
I remember hearing "Spoonman" the first time in Feb. of 94, and it was at a time where I was still feeling strong about myself, and this stuff wouldn't affect me, so when I bought this 10 days after it's release I thouroughly enjoyed it; mind you a couple of these songs I really hated from first hear, and the one I really did was "Black Hole Sun". I hated it because it made me feel rather weak when hearing it; I was fighting alot of things to show how strong I was, and that I wasn't going to let a stupid song bother me that bad. However, I found out I wasn't a match for it; it's dreamyscape intro to the song, and the idyllic feel of nothing good, or bad happening in life I couldn't handle it as I just found it to be too zen-like, and to me that's almost as bad as being stoic.Being stoic is like being without passion, and I know that when looking it up in a thesaurus there are two fruits of the spirit there which are long-suffering, and patient. However, that's as far as it will go, and unfortunately, I found many Christians to be that way which was the route I started taking the second half of 94, and then there was the zen-like part which I never really believed in because I knew that life you could never reach that state. I look back that I wanted to believe that Jesus was the answer because I really couldn't see it any other way, but the behavior of many Christians made me feel that it's not to be trusted because they don't sound like they care about your problems, but just gave you tracts, and left it up to you, and I wish that someone would've taken the time with me. I actuallly like Weird Al Yankovic's version better, and I just wrote it off as an annoying mosquito, but by the summer of 94 I wound up going in a nasty 180 that found me fighting with all my strength, and power, and found that it wasn't working anymore, and anytime I heard this song anymore it made me an emotional cripple. I wasn't ready to go to Christ yet because I was still angry at a Christian at the time, but it kept dragging me down further and further. I know it finally drove me to tears because I couldn't hang on any further. I know that I found both Christians and Non Christians treated me the same, and it made me feel isolated, and alone. I know when I heard "Fell On Black Days" I pretty ignored it at first I know the intro was very meanacing, and made me kind of enjoyed listening, but by the summer I now found it to be just as depressing as "Black Hole Sun". I feel that this album was one that straddled between my old life of independence, happy-go-lucky, and the other side which was depression, anger, jealousy, pride, and weakness. The other I hated from first hear was "My Wave" which was a terrible song. I know it kicks off with "Let Me Drown", but then it takes till "Mailman" and the title cut to bring it back into focus. "Head Down" is awesome; I can only think of that word to describe the song. It has late 1966 early 1967 written all over it, and it's a mindblower, the other mindblower is "Fourth Of July", and this song was even more meatier. I have a fantasy of doing a video of that song where it would begin with a couple making out to Mariah Carey's "Dreamlover", and hearing all the laughing going on while the song's playing, and then all of a sudden you hear a gunshot, and the stereo's blown out, and then you get to playing the song, and the bad person who's dressed in a deputy's uniform chases the woman through the area. The rest is just there, so pretty much it's in someways thier best album since "Ultramega U.K", but it still lacks the main ingredient to make a classic album.

5-0 out of 5 stars this was definately the best band in the entire grunge scene...end of discussion
i recently have been in grunge denial simply because my music tastes no longer find it appealing, but moreso a dead,sophmoric and depressing genre that inspired many of the nu-emo bands as well as trailer park trash like korn and puddle of mudd.

Editorial Review

This 1991 Seattle supergroup brought together Chris Cornell and Matt Cameron of Soundgarden with the surviving members of Mother Love Bone (Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard) and Eddie Vedder, later of Pearl Jam. The experiment worked. Cornell shines, seeming more comfortable here on this tribute to his former roommate and deceased MLB lead singer Andrew Wood than with his own band. "Hunger Strike" and "Say Hello 2 Heaven" combine glam and grunge better than anything in Love Bone's catalog, while "Wooden Jesus" is less didactic than anything in Pearl Jam's oeuvre. Most of the songs may be about loss and addiction, but this is compelling music for black days. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An album of near perfection, say hello to heaven...
Temple Of The Dog (1991.), the first and only release from the Temple Of The Dog grunge supergroup
5-0 out of 5 stars Unforgettable...
I bought this as a tape when I was a broke kid in the nineties having never heard a single track but already being a fan of Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and Soundgarden. This was a big risk for my empty wallet and the best purchase I ever made. With this album I fell in love with Chris Cornell as a songwriter and his voice became etched in my head. This music has been described as getting you through black days, well it took me through high school and some crazy turmoil. To this day, about 12 yrs. later every lyric is ingrained in my memory and evokes the same feeling. This is the best I own to this day and I've had to update a bit and buy the CD too. I guess you could call it an album worth buying twice, take that for what its worth.

5-0 out of 5 stars Compelling music for black days
Temple of the Dog was a one-off project which was started when Soundgarden's Christ Cornell and Matt Cameron hooked up with Mother Love Bone members Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard, as well the then-unknown vocalist Eddie Vedder and guitarist Mike McCready. Some of these members would later go on to form Pearl Jam and upon releasing their highly acclaimed debut Ten, this would also reflect on the sales of Temple of the Dog, parachuting the release to platinum status.

Editorial Review

Overwhelmed by sudden success, Nirvana promised to take a harsher, more abrasive route on their second major-label release. Enlisting Chicago-based noise maven Steve Albini (of Big Black fame), Kurt Cobain and company succeeded in producing a record that was violent, disillusioned, and deeply moving. Every song reads like a commentary on the cost of fame ("Serve the Servants") and the unhealthy relationship between performer and fan ("Milk It"). Of course, they might all simply be about Courtney Love. Gossip aside, there is no denying the sheer power of Cobain's songwriting, his singing, and the band's amazing, visceral power. Cobain even manages a John Lennon-like mantra at the end of the heart-wrenching "All Apologies." "All in all is all we are," he intones repeatedly, only for Cobain that's no consolation. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Was Nirvana the best band of the 90's? I think so............
That's a defensible argument, though not without its serious flaws. You could argue Nirvana were the most important band if you ignore Public Enemy and NWA, maybe.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the great rock albums
Actually, the title of my review doesn't truly represent my opinion of this album. For me, this is the holy grail of all albums. Am I surprised that Nirvana would end up writing my all-time favourite album ever? Not at all. After hearing "Nevermind", it was clear that Cobain and the rest of the group had a true talent for writing music. However, the one thing that did surprise me was that the album that would leave such an impression on me would sound like this.
5-0 out of 5 stars I Hate This Album, but I Listen To It Every Week
"In Utero" is painful to listen to.The noise hurts my ears.The "music" if you can call it music, is pure trash, and yet, this album is my favorite Nirvana album.

Editorial Review

Alice in Chains vocalist Layne Staley teams with Seattle pals Mike McCready (Pearl Jam) and Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees) in the tradition of other part-time grunge aggregations like Brad and Hater.These 10 numbers--mostly somber, acoustic-hued ballads like the single "River of Deceit"--are a therapeutic soul-cleansing for the troubled Staley. Core fans of any of the aforementioned bands will rank this with the solo work of Screaming Tree frontman Mark Lanegan (a guest vocalist here). Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Hidden gem
This album was really one of the better albums of the '90s and not a lot of people ever heard it.It is too bad they never made a follow-up record and, of course, too bad Layne past away.It's better than just "Layne Staley and Mike McCready's side band."They were a great band in their own right.There is also a Live VHS/DVD floating around out there; which is pretty good too.

4-0 out of 5 stars Worthy Sophomore Recording
Despite the criticism this group faced by being told that they were ripping off the major bands from Seattle, they continued to stand strong with this follow-up.Some of the best-known songs on here are the rockin' "Vasoline", the light rock of "Interstate Love Song" & the pseudo-ballad "Big Empty" which was also a part of the soundtrack for the movie, The Crow. One other noteworthy song is the acoustic "Pretty Penny."These songs are good, the CD is pretty decent over all.

4-0 out of 5 stars "Sell me down the river..."
Stone Temple Pilots second album, Purple is their best album ever. Stanout tracks include: Kitchenware and Candy Bars, Interstate Love Song, Big Empty, and Vasoline. All the songs are catchy, timeless, and creative. If you are a huge STP fan, this is the album that made them one of the best grunge bands of the '90s. Buy this gem today!

5-0 out of 5 stars STP fights back...
The massive success of Stone Temple Pilots debut album "Core" (1992) was something of a mixed blessing for the group. While the album was a runaway smash, ultimately selling eight million copies and spawning such radio staples as "Plush," "Sex Type Thing" and "Creep," success definitely came at a price. Almost immediately the San Diego group was viciously and mercilessly attacked and ripped apart by the press. Accusations of ripping off the Seattle grunge scene and jumping on the flavor of the month alternative bandwagon were the most common complaints. "Plush," in particular was singled out as plagiarizing Pearl Jam.

4-0 out of 5 stars A BELATED APPRECIATION, FROM A BABY BOOMER
There are two distinctly different types of people who will see this collection as a worthwhile addition to their collection. The first and most obvious are the true fans who already own everything, but want this new package as a high quality souvenir, posthumously dedicated to the career of a fine band. I belong to the second group of people, music fans who didn't quite relate to the message of Alice In Chains when it was current, but clearly see their relevance now. I was a half-generation removed from the Gen Xers, so the bleak messages and dark chords that appealed to a crowd approximately ten years younger than me left me with dubious impressions. The dark intensity of their music made me feel alienated at the time, and I did not want to immerse myself in a scene that seemed to embrace addiction as an answer to life's anomalies.
5-0 out of 5 stars Shame In You
This is another shameless compilation in the ever-growing re-re-re-released AIC back catalogue. It may suit some casual fans who want just one compilation to represent the band for them, and this is the best compilation for that. It just seems pointless and annoying that the same songs have to be re-released over and over again. When will it be time to say over now?
5-0 out of 5 stars Just buy the damn ALBUMS!!!!!!!!
Columbia Records has released several albums collecting Alice's music. Multiplebox sets, "best of" the box sets, greatest hits and now The Essential Alice in Chains. People, for god sake just go buy the original albums. Alice only released 5 albums, 2 of which were only EP's. Any of the collections contain the majority of either Dirt or Jar Of Flies and the singles from the other records. Just buy the original albums and have ALL the great stuff that Alice recorded and not just the singles that have been repackaged god knows how many times. There are no bad Alice In Chains records, that is the only reason I am giving The Essential Alice in Chains 5 stars.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing, haunting, almost gothic at times
    Ever since i listened to Don't Follow, Nutshell, and Rotten Apple, I like AIC better than Nirvana, Nutshell has some of the best acoustics crossed with distortion ever, very haunting, almost ambient at times, the lyrics are really good too, Along with the crossover song Don't Follow, which is the only song that i like that has harmanicas in it, it's acutally kind of a feel good song, but the lyrics aren't and the acoustics are outstanding, Rotten Apple is also very haunting with some of the best acoustics crossed with distortion that i've heard, almost a gothic touch up to it. Whale and Wasp is an exquisite instrumental, it has no singing, which i don't listen to much. Overall you will be impressed, this album is totally underrated, and overlooked.

    I am not really good at describing things as a whole, but I can rate each track individually to give you all a good idea of how I feel about this album.

    They are no good. The first 6 songs are terrible. I know 2 hits came off of this: "No Excuses", and "I Stay Away", but they stink as well as "Whales and Wasp". It's a shame that they rushed this out after breaking through big time with "Dirt", but I guess the label knew best. The best on here is "Swing On This". This is another bad memory of my first few months in FL. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Greatness Defined
    AllI can say about this CD is WOW!! This is one of the legendary bands to come out of the "Grunge" era. This CD has everything you could ask for in an acoustic set. Stanley's vocal power is not lost even though he is in a durg induced haze and a downward spin that would evenually cost him his life.Jerry Cantrell's guitar play is in a word Awesome.It is too bad that Stanley had to die before Alice came into the greatness they so richly deserve. I would highly recomend this CD to anyone who loves Alice in Chains as well as people that realy enjoy acoustic sets.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
    I remember when this came out. I thought it was late into the game because it was 1996 and grunge was over. Looking back on it now 1994 and 1996 wasn't a huge time difference, but when your a kid its eternity. Excellent album.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
    Alice in Chains "Unplugged" is my favorite MTV Unplugged. It was recorded, as you all probably know, after a three year hiatus from the stage. Even though vocalist Layne Staley wouldn't die until six years later, he looked strung out and weak throughout the show. That doesn't keep him from delivering a powerful vocal performance though. While I recommend the DVD over this, because you see the outtakes (like when Staley messes up on Sludge Factory and Mike Inez's message to Metallica written on his bass guitar). While there's a few songs I wish they would've done on this show, there's none that I would get rid of. There's nothing off their first album (Facelift), but there's plenty off their next three (Dirt, Jar of Flies, Alice in Chains). This is a great CD to burn some insence to in the dark and just zone out. Here's the tracks:

    This is merely a fistful of Nirvana's most overplayed songs thrown together on a CD. It doesn't flow well as an album and isn't really a great selection of songs either. About half came from In Utero and I would highly recommend that you purchase that instead. It flows infinitely better and consequently the same songs sound better on it. Also, it has the electric version of "All Apologies" whereas this has the unplugged, which isn't as effective in my opinion.
    2-0 out of 5 stars And why, exactly ... ?
    Nirvana's deepest desire was to be indie rock, and appreciated as such. To be more than a trendy, ultracommercial mega-band with predictably loud, thrashy songs with a slick production, ready for the radio. They were punk rock. They were anti-establishment, anti-corporate, and -- to their ultimate destruction -- anti-fame, fortune, and stardom.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Long-Awaited Single Disc Nirvana Collection
    Nirvana rocks. Lead singer Kurt Cobain was fueled not by fame and celebrity but by expereience and true emotion. The band was the leading part of the Seattle grunge movement.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Snapshot of Seattle Times
    Listening to the "Singles" Soundtrack is liking listening to a launching pad.Cameron Crow, he of much music fandom, directed the Singles flick at just the right time to help propel the Seattle grunge sound to a much larger audience.It's what happens when a seemingly alternative movement gets popularized...which is not a bad thing.Does a mass audience change the dynamics and quality of the music?I think not.Pearl Jam Ten is every bit as good as Pearl Jam No Code, so just because grunge got popularized through the success of Nirvana, PJ, Alice, doesn't knock the power of the music and the quality of the movement.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Could be the best soundtrack of all time
    Soundtracks never meant a lot to me. In fact, prior to buying this, I had never even taken the time to listen to one completely because I would get so frustrated with the choices so early in the CD. When my interest in 90s grunge was peaking is when I found the Singles soundtrack. My obsession with grunge has since diminished a tad bit but I still find myself listening to this all the time even though I've had it for a long time. From Alice In Chains' dark anthem Would? to The Lovemongers very good take on the Zeppelin classic Battle Of Evermore, I'm hardpressed to think of a soundtrack that delivers like this one does.
