    Not really blown away by the new song yet, but hopefully that will change.

    Same here. It's quite slow.
    Although, I do remember not being so keen on the first single from the last album either (not sure if it was "Stone" or "Hollow"?) but I enjoyed that one once I listened to the full thing.

    Much as I try, I just can’t get into the current version of the band - not only because of the lack of Layne’s incredible vocals, but because the songwriting well seems to have run dry. They clearly aim for mood in their music - and succeed there - but there is just a distinct lack of anything resembling a memorable melody in any of it. The songs are all sludgy, drudge and all very similar. Sure there are little differences in riffs, tempo and rhythm, but the songs are all essentially the same.

    That said, I’m sure I’ll pick up the new one when it’s released - why stop now :laugh:

    The same here. I keep trying, but they just don't do it for me. Not saying they aren't talented, they are, but the music just doesn't do it for me.

    Three years later and Facelift and the self titled are still not reissued.

    I think it's pretty good.

    I have this thread on my email watch list, and for a minute I thought Alice in Chains just dropped a preorder!
