Rainier Fog Album Reviews


AlC is in danger of becoming redundent  Definitelyarocker  1 star

Let me be clear I love AIC, all of the material with Layne Staley was for the most part fantastic. Black Gives Way to Blue had a lot of great things as well, it wasnt a masterpiece but it had a mix of material. But than entered the next album after that, The Devil Put Dinosaurs here and maybe even this album, where the material, with the vocals and the music sound exactly the same as the last song. Come on guys, I love you guys but wheres the creativity wheres the pushing the boundaries of music. I shouldnt listen to something and get bored. I am going to buy this because I own everything else, but please dont make me regret it. I dont want another AIC album to be put in the back of my album collection, just so I can pull out Facelift, Dirt, and AIC out again. Update: sure enough bumped it back 2 more stars, sounds exactly like the last 2 albums previously. Zero creative output at all, completely boring.

Love the band and there’s good stuff here. The problem for me is the mid tempo redundancy. Last couple records I’ve pined for something uptempo ala “Fear the Voices”, “Would” etc. I suppose some more spins and I’ll get ahold of it. The best songs are the Sapish ones.

Ranks Extremely High!!  Miracle rose Williams  5 star

This album is literally THE album of the year on all accounts for me. Drone is one of their new best songs along with Deaf Ears’, So Far Under and The One You Know. Also the first Alice In Chains record with a Black cover ranks among the bands best records without a doubt. Buy a CD, Vinyl, and digital if you please copy of this album PRONTO!!


Still top of the rock food chain.  Samuraipudding  5 star

Grew up listening to AIC, love the old stuff and love the new. Growing up in the PNW they still capture the feel and vibe of the region that helped shape their sound. No filler here. A must own forany rock and metal fan. Support quality, well-written heavy music and purchase now.

HELL YEAH!!  Will_79  5 star

Another solid album  Guitarguy86!  4 star

Alice is in a different format since the passing of great frontman Layne Staley. Some will not get over that fact and that’s fine. But the band has evolved. Instead of having imitation they’ve gone with innovation with their past 3 albums. William doesn’t sing with the same amount of power that Layne did but harmonizes with Jerry beautifully and adds something more to the mix. Where they lack they more than make up with their dueling guitar work and vocal layering. As a band they’ve never faltered in the song writing department and this album is no exception. Rainier Fog, Red Giant and Never Fade are probably going to be my favorites for this album but it is a very solid album as a whole. I’m grateful they are still chugging along

Reviews before album needs to stop  Gus(bus)  5 star

This album is great and I recommend it for any AiC fan. One issue I have is that most of the reviews for this album came out before the album was even released. There is a one star on here despite the person not listening to the album. You can’t review something you haven’t heard. Otherwise this album is great. I’d recommend tracks such as “fly” and “maybe” if you are looking for a Jar of Flies vibe or the song “So Far Under” for a more Dirt/Tripod tone.


Good, but...  TRIM57  3 star

...the album sounds like one long song.


Obviously  HollyAnnDenick  5 star

Always great


AIC!!  ShawnD1234  5 star

Wow..... they kill it on every song! I’ve been waiting for this album for months so glad it’s finally here! AIC is and always will be favorite, so glad they’re still putting out great music!


Drone  zbugman  5 star

By far the best song on the album IMO. Love the whole album but Drone rocks hard!!


Love it!  Jones810  5 star

The album really sounds like AIC is going back to their roots. Sounds like a jar of flies mixed with black gives way to blue and I think it’s the perfect match!!


ILLUMINATI  Angeluz3300  1 star

Very illuminati


Just can’t  NewYorkRaider  1 star

Every song since the last album with Layne I feel myself waiting for that scream that never comes, it just feels like the songs are incomplete without that raspy scream layne brought. I understand the show must go on but I just find myself wondering how much better these songs would be if Mr.Staley was still with us. Just makes me go back to the old stuff. RIP Layne!


Solid  MissBelou  5 star

They never disappoint. Another deep record.


Jar Of Flies 2.0  Artman706  5 star

I hear a lot of AIC’s Jar Of Flies here...it was one of my favorites...granted there are some hard ones too...overall, pleased with this album... thanks guys
