pretty good release for ALICE IN CHAINS ,maybe too much in a few years though!mostly semi acoustic tunes in their usual style & quality with "nutshell" stealing the show

Jar Of Flies is that rare EP that contains some of a band's best material. Alice In Chains always excelled at moody, softer songs, more than any of the other Seattle bands. Supposedly these songs were written and recorded in short order, but for the most part they don't feel slapdash. Layne's voice has settled into a deep, nasal drone that can seem quite unpleasant taken on its own, but once you catch the vibe of the songs, it fits perfectly. "Nutshell" is a case in point: the lyrics are basically him whining about unfavorable press coverage, yet so many people have found something they can apply to themselves, and it's down to his performance rather than the actual words he sings. "No Excuses" may be the band's biggest mainstream hit (even stodgy AOR stations played it during the daytime), but it's not a particular favorite of mine. I gravitate more toward the grandiose (for them) "I Stay Away" and "Don't Follow" (because—harmonica!), as well as the heaviest thing here, "Rotten Apple.
