According to Billboard Magazine, “in many ways, Alice in Chains was the definitive heavy metal band of the early '90s,” while MTV.com has “placed them among the front ranks of the Seattle-based grunge bands.” All Music Guide would further add that “Alice in Chains were arguably the most metallic of grunge bands, which gave them a definite appeal outside the underground.” As the band grew overnight into Grunge superstars from their initial signing to Columbia Records in 1990, Rolling Stone Magazine would further report that “Alice in Chains was among the biggest to emerge from the grunge scene that spawned Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden.” Going on to produce such genre-defining hits as ‘Man in the Box, Again, Rooster, Angry Chair, Got Me Wrong, and Dirt among their 11 Top 10 hit singles on the Billboard Singles Charts among 19 Billboard Top 40 hits, Alice in Chains would eventually sell 14 million albums worldwide, including two Billboard Top 200 Album Chart # 1 LPs, including ‘Jar of Flies’ and ‘Alice in Chains.’ The band’s critical accolades would further include 6 Grammy Nominations, and an MTV Music Video Award win, and to date, Alice in Chains remains both a critical, commercial and fan favorite!

I read the newer "Alice in Chains: The Untold Story" before this, as I didn't know this existed, but I have to applaud this book for going into vast detail about the eras of recording each record. Specifically Jar of Flies, which is a masterpiece, and David De Sola didn't do much on the topic of said EP. I think this and De Sola's book are both essential for the hardcore AIC fan.
