Good album. I listened to it yesterday for the first time in a long time.
Still sounds good to me. It seems to be a dark album lyrically and vibe wise.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dirt_(Alice_in_Chains_album)
Dirt is the second studio album by the American rock band Alice in Chains, released on September 29, 1992, through Columbia Records. Peaking at number six on the Billboard 200, the album was also well received by music critics. It has since been certified four-times platinum by the RIAA and gone on to sell five million copies worldwide, making Dirt the band's highest selling album to date. It is the band's last album recorded with all four original members, as bassist Mike Starr was terminated from the band in January 1993.[4][5]
The album spawned five singles: "Would?", "Them Bones", "Angry Chair", "Rooster", and "Down in a Hole"; all with accompanying music videos. The songs on the album focused on depression, pain, anger, anti-social behavior, drug addiction (primarily heroin), war, death, and other emotionally charged topics. Rolling Stone listed the album at No. 26 on its list of the 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time.[6]

I absolutely love this album. Criminal that it only peaked at #6 (especially considering Billy Ray Cyrus was one of the 5 ahead of AiC).
