it should be no secret to anyone that, in my humble and respectful opinion, "Dirt" is perhaps the greatest hour of music ever unleashed.
It coalesces all of the intrinsic integrants of rock music, of both years gone by and the then-present, bringing into one heavy-rock maleficence, and the dynamics and periodicity of the then-ongoing alternative-rock explosion, and using the muscular yet hauntingly delicate sound to proclaim the members own desolation and grief. Staley's tortured screams of addiction on "Junkhead" and "Sickman", and the morbid storytelling of Jerry Cantrell, recollecting his father's tales of the horrors of Veitnam in "Rooster", of his own violent history with a band member in "Dam that River", "Would?" recounting his loss of a beloved friend in Andrew Wood, makes every lyric strike a nerve.
Jerry Cantrell may not be the most technical guitarist ever, he doesn't need to be! He is truly "the riff-lord", as his every move on the guitar conveys, and constructs a dark ambiance around the lyrics. The Herculean thrash that he rocks out on "Dam that River" couldn't better complement his retelling of his brawling with a bandmate, and the somber heartland-tinges on "Rooster" illustrates the bleak anguish endured by a Veitnam war soldier.
"Dirt" is a rock masterpiece from the darkest pits of Gehenna. Its my favourite album ever.
