nobody has commented yet...hmmm...don't know why AIC was referred to as grunge. I don't like grunge. I always thought of AIC as mainstream rock, then and now. Tasty guitar lines, astronomical vocals. Too bad Lane Staley didn't live longer. The guy had unbelievable technique and control. Might be time for an AIC challenge....

And a killer interpretation from you, Felipe. Very impressive. Your harmonies are so good, your falsetto is magical. If you want to be nitpicky, if you for example would like to make a record out of it, there are two minor things to improve. The word "me" after 1:21 is out of pitch and you wavered a bit in the word "die" around 3.47.

Outstanding, Felipe. As an aside, even though I have butchered the lyrics in this song many times, my favorite part is ;

"Walking tall, machine gun man. They spit on me in my homeland." An homage to returning veterans, especially from the Viet Nam War. A few friends of mine who served there had such experiences. Often, a solder finished his tour of duty and enlistement and was not even debriefed. Caught the first "Huey" (UH-1 troop transport helicopter) of the forward base station and flown back to Da Nang and legged over to a commercial airport and put on a commercial flight to California. Still in BDU's, covered in mud, blood, and sweat.

To be disenfranchised by the very people who's freedom they were fighting for. A few guys said that last two weeks of combat tour were the most nerve-wracking. You can see the finish line and you don't want anything to get in the way.

Sorry to veer off on my own private mind trip. But your singing was good and left me free to go where the song takes me.

Bravo, Felipe.

sls haha well, I think most of the stuff in the Seattle scene was heavily influenced by them, I agree its a different band, but AiC is a big part of everything that came from there. I have no problem with "grunge" but I also dont like a great deal of stuff that is under the tag :).

wabba Thank you man!!

Olem haha thanks man. I hear you, and thanks for the careful listenning, it is indeed off :)

ronws Its one hell of a song... And Layne had his way of making everything that is already heavy and dark become even more disturbing, the lyrics are perfect. Thanks for listenning and for the words man.

Singing sounds really great. There's some evil clipping sound though (on the bass track I think), especially in the beginning and end. But I think someone else recorded the music, right?

I listened a lot to Alice In Chains way back when. I think you've got spot on technique. Very impressive. I like it.
