    I don't understand the appeal of PJ. They're the Journey...or maybe the Doobie Brothers...of hard rock.

    The grunge era never came close to equaling Dirt. The entire hard rock, or heavy metal, or whatever umbrella label you think AIC falls into, has rarely equaled it in its entire history.

    I first heard AiC on the KISW New Music Hour (rip) in 1989 or 1990, with a booter of Queen of the Rodeo. Hooked. I bought Facelift when it was released. However, there's a lot of AiC songs I just don't like that much. But that's just a taste preference. Their musicianship is undeniable, with the vocals being the biggest differentiator.
    Yep Layne and Jerry's harmonies are next level. It's what sets them apart from anything else in the era.
    PJ is my all-tim favorite. Especially when you go deep into their live shows which transcends anything overplayed on the radio. I would argue that McCready's riffs are equal to the vocals of Layne & Jerry.

    With all that said, I've been listening to a TON of AIC (and Mad Season) recently.

    This could have easily been the #1 v #2 v #3 (including Nevermind), imo



    Edit: I just read the OG Tournament thread. Explains a lot that bully @dnc has PJ ranked #38562638. Haters gonna hate.
    Uhhh I was really kind to Ten in the seedings. It finished in a four way tie for third in it's own year, yet I brought Ten into the field and left the other three it tied with out. I gave it the third highest seed of all the non winners in the bracket, behind only The Black Album (which got more votes than Ten did in the 91 pole and had to rank ahead of it) and Superunkown.

    And I voted for Ten over The Black Album when they went head to head.

    I was very respectful of Ten's place here
    .
    Now you're just gaslighting me, Bully.
    And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass
    Of what was everything
    All the pictures have all been washed in black
    Tattooed everything

    It's grunge's greatest breakup song (not exactly the genre's strongpoint).

    I've probably posted this before but this is great, especially when the crowd takes over the bridge.

    This is case in poont re their live shows being better than anything they recorded for radio airplay.

    The evolution and maturation of McCready's riffs keep me coming back for more. You just don't hear that on the original recordings. At all.
