Triple 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing in 10mm slipcase including 12 page booklet.
Degradation Trip is the second solo album by Alice in Chains lead guitarist Jerry Cantrell. The musical rhythms are comparable to his former band, but the shorter songs are balanced with long prog rock epics. Jerry locked himself in his house to write 25 songs, all about different parts from his life. The lyrics are confessional and haunting, dealing with personal issues including drug abuse, hedonistic lifestyle of musicians and relationships. It is a great reminder of the time in which Alice in Chains was one of the most popular bands in the grunge scene. For those who loved the band's slow and doomy riffs this is a massive two-hour voyage through whatever Cantrell could dig up. This expanded edition consists of all the material he recorded in the Degradation Trip sessions.
