"As much as I love Alice in Chains's full-length albums, I think their EP releases are the best evidence of the band's versatility, talent, and soul. Case in point is the 1992 EP Sap. Coming after the unrelentingly heavy Facelift (and before the equally heavy Dirt), this brief collection of mostly laid back material was not what I was expecting.
The EP kicks off with the almost acoustic song "Brother". It's very mellow, but as gloomy as anything Alice in Chains has ever written. Next is "Got Me Wrong", one of my favorite AIC songs and one that is a nice, melodic counterpart to Dirt's "Would". The next song - "Right Turn" - is a grunge fan's dream with Soundgarden's Chris Cornell trading lines with Layne Stayley. It's beautiful and depressing at the same time. The disc's supposedly final track - "Am I Inside" - is an utterly depressing almost acoustic song. It is followed by a bizarre untitled track that sounds like something off of Faith No More's Angel Dust album. It's a frenzied, mood shattering way to end things.
If you're an Alice in Chains fan, you need to own Sap. It bridges the gap between two of their best full-length albums, and is more impressive with just 5 songs than full albums from many other 90's bands.
