Don't mind him actually; but he's definitely not Layne, I think it probably would've been better if they had renamed the band once DuVall joined, because AIC just isn't AIC without Layne Staley.

Well, I prefer Layne. We all do.. That's a fact. But William just sounds 'deep and roud' to me. Layne was sharp and on point. William can try all he wants, but he he will never replace Layne. No one could.

He has grown on me. He isn't Layne of course, but he isn't trying to be and that was the thing that made me give him the opportunity.

People, remember the guy is now almost longer in the band than Layne was (in active duty at least). But that's the same with Bon Scott v. Brian Johnson, he will always be the replacement dude, accepted by some, rejected by others.

I for my part have been on a looooong Alice-less spell now, so I probably should give the last two records some more spins. But that goes for a lot of other albums too :P

I liked him from the start really. He hasn't tried to be a poor imitation of Layne, and BGWTB is still one of my favourite AIC albums, right after Dirt. I don't think they should've renaimed the band, because after all there are still 3 members of the original band (counting Inez as original here) and while Layne may have been seen as the frontman, he wasn't the band, if you know what I mean. He was a huge part of their sound, but so are the other members.
