the best one


Finally listening to Alice In Chains
Facelift is a great debut record there’s no track I disliked Yes I love some more then others but I think each track serves a porpoise and adds to the fun of the record.
Favorite tracks : Man in the box, Love Hate Love , Confusion, I know somethin and Sunshine


THIS IS SO GREAT, i might barely prefer dirt over this but i feel if i spend more time with this album it might become one of my all time favs
