But on the real tho, as far as the heavy Sabbath-influenced dirges with those vocal harmonies go, I kind of feel like AIC went completely that way on the last album much to it's detriment. Not much variation there and to be honest I have a tough time sitting through that whole album. They very rarely stray from that formula. Even disregarding their more subdued, 'acoustic' albums, even 'Dirt' had 'Rooster' and 'Down In A Hole' which are highlights of that album and translated very well on the 'Unplugged'.

At any rate, I think 'Jar Of Flies' is probably my favourite AIC album. If tracks like 'Nutshell' or 'No Excuses' or 'I Stay Away' or 'Rotten Apple' or 'Don't Follow', which pretty much deviate from the heavy dirges, if they don't get you, you have a heart of stone.


Look I really like "Jar Of Flies". It's a 4/5 release for mine. I don't like "I Will Follow" much but the rest of the tracklisting is very solid. Especially "Nutshell" which is one of their very best songs. But this doesn't change the fact that (with the exception of the self-titled) I'd rather listen to all of their full-length albums over it. I think "Sap" is their least impressive release too. It's clearly just personal preference because they're a quality band that's never released anything that wasn't worth a listen.

Neither do I (especially this cover...ugh) :D

Yeah, they certainly have a solid catalogue. I'm not sure which I'd take between 'Facelift' and the self-titled. Probably just on the strength of a couple of songs and the greater involvement from Staley, the debut nudges it out, but they are neck and neck. Alright list time (studio albums/EPs only).

Jar of Flies
Dirt
Facelift
Self-titled
Black Gives Way To Blue
Sap
The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here

New Dr.Octagon song. Kool Keith/Dan The Automator/Q-Bert. Mediocre.

Koo Keith has been ordinary for a long, long time now. Even Automator has been vanilla for a good decade.

Feature Magnetic gave me _some_ hope for Keith's future releases, but you are right about Automator. His beats sound way too clean and sterile now and lack any sort of edge.

Sounds like a mix between early Rotting Christ and early Tiamat or something.
