    waiting to buy it. some albums I'll download first just to see if it's worth my 20+ fucking dollars. others I just know are worth it. This will be, at least to me. Didn't bother downloading Jeff or Dane's solo albums either, just bought em.

    I heard it set to a laser show in a big dome a couple weeks ago. I laid on my back with my head on a pillow and tripped the hell out. It was amazing then and still is now. This album is instantly special and will never be forgotten :)

    best comeback album ever other than monotheist eofs

    it gets better

    I figured a looking in view was one of the weaker tracks on the album.

    private hell and the title track are really special.

    Oh how you tease me with your words...

    I almost wish time traveled faster so I could hear each song faster just to get to the next one.

    I really love it. Some songs feels almost like Duvall channels Layne from the great Beyond.
    Its quite awesome. Also Private Hell is one my faves.

    You, sir, have never been more right.

    Seriously, every single track is great. The only ones that are a little weak (and by weak I just mean not AS awesome) would probably be the singles, Check My Brain and A Looking in View, along with Acid Bubble. Three tracks that aren't weak at all, just in comparison to the sheer awesomeness of the rest of the album they aren't AS awesome.

    Also Black Gives Way to Blue is one of the most beautiful ballad-y songs I've heard in a long, long time.

    Standout tracks for me:

    Your Decision
    Black Gives Way to Blue
    Take Her Out
    When the Sun Rose Again
    Private Hell
    Last of My Kind
    All Secrets Known

    When was the last time you heard an album with absolutely NO filler? I haven't...until now.

    Beautiful, beautiful song. It's one of those songs I wish could go on forever and ever in my head. This title track is to this album what Would? was to Dirt.

    Dude I'm freaking the fuck out over here. I had just about given up hope on bands I've loved being able to make any decent comeback. This album has completely blown me away.

    If they don't win a grammy for this album...no, wait...if they don't SWEEP the Grammys for this album, I'm going to be really surprised.

    If you didn't like them previously you might not like them now...the reason we love it so much is because it's classic Alice in Chains.

    It's not some band reinventing themselves....they never had to do that. They've always been awesome to us.

    However, you just might think it's ok. It's a really dark and moody album.
