14. Alice In Chains – The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here
Few bands are capable of replacing a lead singer, especially upon their death. Whilst Alice In Chains never took to the heights of AC/DC they’re still one of my favourite bands and I think the best of the Big Four of Grunge (Pearl Jam, AIC, Soundgarden & Nirvana). The two singles released, though brilliant, were definitely the wrong songs as the rest of the album is no where near as heavy. But, I praised it in my review, and I still feel positive if not slightly better about it. The title track is great and memorable and whilst there are a couple of tracks that are a little lackluster the songs that hit, strike hard. Great progress in their career, decent riffs and great melodies. The harmonies are of course fantastic.
