Jar of Flies

Genre: Rock; Producer (group): Sony Music

Alice In Chains Jar of Flies (Columbia) This EP is quite a departure from the lugubrious junkie rock of the band’s earlier albums. Among the surprises: a countryish campfire song (”Don’t Follow”), a sappy bit of ’70s-style fluff (”No Excuses”), and a slice of postmodern boogie-woogie (”Swing on This”). It all goes down easy, but where Alice’s breakthrough album, Dirt, captured the despair of men wallowing in a spiritual cesspool, Flies merely sounds like the same guys dangling their feet in muddy water.
