          When Alice in Chains' debut album, Facelift, was released in 1990, about a year      
          before Nirvana's Nevermind, the thriving Seattle scene barely registered on the      
          national musical radar outside of underground circles (although Soundgarden's        
          major-label debut, Louder Than Love, was also released that year and brought them a  
          Grammy nomination). That started to change when MTV jumped all over the video for    
          "Man in the Box," giving the group a crucial boost and helping to pave the way for   
          grunge's popular explosion toward the end of 1991. Although their dominant influences
          -- Black Sabbath, the Stooges -- were hardly unique on the Seattle scene, Alice in   
          Chains were arguably the most metallic of grunge bands, which gave them a definite   
          appeal outside the underground; all the same, the group's sinister, brooding,        
          suffocating sound resembled little else gaining wide exposure on the 1990 hard rock  
          scene. Neither hedonistic nor especially technically accomplished, Alice in Chains'  
          songs were mostly slow, oppressive dirges with a sense of melody that was undeniable,
          yet which crept along over the murky sludge of the band's instrumental attack in a   
          way that hardly fit accepted notions of what made hard rock catchy and accessible.   
          Although some parts of Facelift sink into turgid, ponderous bombast (particularly    
          over the erratic second half), and the lyrics are sometimes immature, the overall    
          effect is fresh, exciting, and powerful. While Alice in Chains would go on to do     
          better and more consistent work, Facelift was one of the most important records in   
          establishing an audience for grunge and alternative rock among hard rock and heavy   
          metal listeners, and with its platinum sales certification, it also made Alice in    
          Chains the first Seattle band to break through to a wider, less exclusively          
          underground audience.
