If you like Alice in Chains or the Screaming Trees, you will love Mad Season. This superband is a mix of members from other bands, including Alice in Chain's Lane Staley and Screaming Tree's Mark Lanegan. "Above" has a very solid rock sound with some blues in there as well. It's a hard CD to find but when you do find it, I'm sure you will enjoy it just as much as I have and it's a great addition to your CD collection from the best years of grunge (In my opinion, 1989-1995). I would rate this CD very high and I would recommend it to a wide variety of listeners. ~Ben

This is an excellent grouping with Layne Staleys tremendously melodic vocals.It simply doesn't suit my tastes any longer.

CD Reviews

If you liked A.I.C, get this release!

"This CD rocks.. and for those of you who only know of or have ever heard "River of Deceit" this album goes way deeper than just that track. In fact if you didn't know any better, you would think this is an A.I.C. album, it's just that good. In my opinion all 10 tracks are pretty cool in their own respects. ¤¤¤~~R.I.P Layne~~¤¤¤"
Must have for Staley fans!

"members from two of my favorite bands, Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains combine on the only Mad Season album ever. Most prominent is the late layne Staley. Staley is one of the best rock vocalists of all time. Right up there not only with his contemporaries Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder, but with classic rock's greatest frontmen; Robert Plant, Mick Jagger,Roger Daltry, the list goes on. Staley's unique delivery works well not only on hard rocking albums like Facelift and Dirt, but also on quieter albums such as Jar Of Flies, Sap, and AIC Unplugged. The softer side is displayed throughout this album.
This is one of the most successful side projects ever assembled, right alongside the brilliant Temple Of The Dog. After you get this album, get the VHS (not on dvd yet) performance of Mad Season Live, it shows Layne's unique gift as a live performer. We miss ya Layne."
