'Degradation Trip' was one of the most CRIMINALLY underrated albums of the 2000's (Volumes 1 & 2 to be precise).
I believe you nailed it on the head. I remember seeing Jerry in Charlotte to support these albums. Honestly, I didn't dig the live show. Then again Layne had died the month I saw him. All I could remember thinking was there was something missing.
Layne died on April 5, 2002 and I saw Jerry Cantrell on April 27, 2002.
