Rocksmith 2014 DLC 11/12 – Alice in Chains 5 Pack

Alice_In_Chains_-_Dirt_-_front

 

Today’s Rocksmith 2014 DLC is a 5 pack from Seattle based Grunge band Alice in Chains! A well rounded pack with songs from albums such as Dirt, Facelift, Black Gives Way To Blue, and their latest release The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.

Alice in Chains Song Pack – $11.99 / Steam

Pros: Man In The Box is uncensored, the tones are awesome, and nothing is too difficult

Cons: No Rooster, No Down In A Hole, No <Insert Song>, Oh and I’ve been told the DLC is delayed till next week for our Sony Entertainment Network friends…

Which songs are you picking up? Grabbing the whole pack? Let us know!

Well I guess I am one of the few that has been highly disappointed by this week’s DLC. I did read a few posts where people said they aren’t fans, but I freaking hate this band. I change the radio station everytime one of their songs come on. It isn’t for lack of trying, one my good friends is obsessed with this band. Just not my cup of tea, so I won’t be getting any of these songs unless they stop releasing DLC and I get bored playing other songs. When can we have some Sublime??? The entire 40 oz… Read more »

No Tool, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin (lol) and The Eagles…

You know, you used up 5 lines of text to say “I don’t like AiC” Is that some sort of record?

What do I have to do to get down in a hole in a music game? They could’ve chosen 5 songs just from Dirt alone. Oh and is this dlc gonna be delayed a week on the PSN?

I have never been a huge AIC fan, but after listening to these tracks I am pretty stoked to play some of those riffs and leads. I guess I never noticed how hard they were rocking. Also, I am doubly impressed at how much the new singer sounds like the old one.

3rd week of stuff just to heavy for me. Maybe the 19th will hold something for me.

I hope they release a second AiC DLC in a few months. I miss songs like Rooster, Down in a Hole or Nutshell in this one. Hollow and Check my Brain are certainly good songs, but I think many AiC fans prefer their older songs with Layne (no offense Jerry 😉 ). From their newer stuff I would have liked to play Black gives way to blue and Your Decision.

Exactly my opinion nullPointer,
would have loved to see some songs from the ‘Jar of Flies’ EP (Rotten Apple, Nutshell, Whale & Wasp,…) which have brought a greater variety to the game.

Totally seconded on that. People tend to think of AiC as purely a hard hitting rock band, while forgetting about those fantastic mellower “kinda-sorta-acoustic” EPs. I would have loved to see some Jar of flies material in-game.

First pack for 2014 that I won’t be picking up the entire set, but to be fair I’m not a huge fan of the newer incarnation of AiC. In order of preference: Them Bones: One of my favorite AiC tracks, and probably one of their heaviest songs. I remember buying this album in high school, with this song being the first song on that album. My 16 year old mind was blown. Edgy, Dark and Angry. Love it! Man in The Box: Feel the power of Wah! Would?: It’s unquestionably good, but this song became so associated with the “90s… Read more »

not wah, TALK BOX!!

I was definitely wondering that too. I actually had to go check out the isolated guitar track. It’s somewhat harder to hear in the mix since that talk box is sooo thick, and the guitar basically doubles that, but you can really hear it with the isolated track. Check this out:
Man in the Box (Jerry Cantrell only)

wow, that track is awesome, thanks!

I don’t get your Cameron Crowe reference

nullPointer
Guest

So there was this movie that Cameron Crowe made in the 90’s called Singles. It was ostensibly a romantic comedy (and yet was oddly lacking in much of either). It was basically the result of Hollywood wanting their slice of the pie from the burgeoning Seattle music scene at the time. Any hoo, the soundtrack featured several “grunge” bands including Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, and for the purposes of this discussion AiC playing Would?. It’s a great track but as a result of the film being successful, MTV and every applicable radio station was spamming the crap out of that… Read more »

FYI, Jerry Cantrell does lead vocals a whole lot more than you think. Most of Would?(the verses in particular) is actually Jerry Cantrell singing NOT Layne Staley. Check my Brain is of similar ilk. Most AiC stuff over the years has this dynamic. Most songs are duets to a large extent

Wow, I never knew that! I guess I should pay attention a bit more to liner notes and that sort of thing. Thanks for the info!

Best place to see it is the “heaven beside you” clip. Its one of the few clips you see Cantrell openly singing. He sings the whole song on this one BTW and the voice is pretty clear.
