The main difference to be pointed out between Mad Season and Alice in Chains (Staley's better known band), which becomes clear after just a few songs, is the guitar sound. Whilst AIC favored aggressive and almost sinister riffs, combined with creepy, haunting acoustic melodys, Mike Mcready (of Pearl Jam fame) utilises a more blues/jazz based mellow groove to his playing on this record, and when combined with Staley's powerful and tortured voice, makes for an intruiging musical cocktail.
There are some great tracks on offer here. Album opener 'Wake Up' is a grand way to set things off, begining with the gentle chimes of Mcready's guitar, then slowly introducing Staley's creaky, painful tones, which slowly build into an epic display of vocal power when the 'chorus' kicks in (not really a chorus in the traditional sense of the word). It is songs like this that proved Staley to be one of the best rock vocalists of the 90's, and that was up against some pretty stiff competition.
There are a couple of throwaway tracks aswell, which do little to help the album along, but they are few and far between.
One of the most interesting musical releases of the 90's alt-rock revolution, Above deserves to be recognised along with the better known albums of its era, and I guarantee that if you give a chance, you won't regret it.
The 4 musicians together produce a warm, mellow album that sounds quite unlike anything by their usual bands. I feel that
Layne Staley is the real star of the album since he wrote virtually all the lyrics and plays a fair bit of guitar, whereas with Alice In Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell wrote most of their material.
The standout tracks I think are Wake Up(the opening track), River Of Deceit, Long Gone Day and Lifeless Dead.
As well as the excellent guitar work of Pearl Jam's Mike McCready and drums by Barrett Martin of the Screaming Trees,
'Above' serves as a worthy tribute to both Layne Staley and bassist John Baker Saunders who both later died tragically of drug overdoses.
