I really think that people fail to hear Jerry Cantrell's vocal contribution to much of Alice In Chains music. It's one of the reasons that they've been able to maintain the vocal sound of the band so well even thought Layne is no longer of this mortal coil. I will say that DuVall can duplicate Layne's style and timbre very closely though too.
Excellent point. IMHO, Jerry Cantrell is Alice in Chains. Think of the best works from AiC, and Jerry is the fountainhead of it all. Jar of Flies, self-titled, any other great AiC song, and Jerry was it. Got to see Jerry and crew in concert, and it was all AiC without any Layne drama.

Everyone has an off day and just because someone is a "legend" doesn't make me orgasm at the mere mention of their name. I give it a 3.
I agree the technical aspect is superb, and distinctly Hendrix, but Crockydile has a good point that the artist doesn't have a prerequisite rating. Very, very skillful noise it is, and I enjoy it very much. I can't agree with his 3 rating; songs like this I abstain from voting, much like most jazz.

Why bother to listen if you hate everything you hear?!
When you rate music, it shows up in your profile. According to when you hear it, it creates a list. Normally, it is very random (like Bill's playlist), but this gentleman Excelsior would go into an artist song catalog, and instantly rate a bunch 1's without the randomness we enjoy here at RP. Just a chopping block of 1's for him. Personally, I will listen to every Dylan or Bruce Spring-whoever song on RP, and then give it the usual 1 thru 5. I'm biased myself, but please give each song a shot. Right now the Cure is playing; a band I could not stand a few years ago is starting to grow on me.
