You guys make my day. Layne Staley, Alice in Chains defined my life as a younger man. Glad to know there are people just as passionate about them as me

The screechy buzz of Jerry's guitar is the wasp, and the session violinist plays the part of the whale. Beautiful.

I agree anakin19.... t h i s song reminds me of that too....the slow movement of the song is almost like a story telling of how Layne struggled so much with heroin with the slow parts being more of a calm and the fast parts more of a high note.

This band, this record specifically - is totally priceless. There are no words to describe the magnitude level of the rockingness of this song-of this band

Great track, but I just can't help being disappointed that I can't hear "don't follow" afterwards.. .

Iwas staring up at the stars of a nightime sky...Beauti f u l , in a time that will never come again.

This reminds me of Layne's struggle to overcome his disease; there are moments of clear blue sky, but the minor keys keep it from being a light song. There's too much sadness in it for it to be anything other than a lost man's cry for the freedom that he never was able to attain. I'm a fan not a critic so I may have totally fuddled my thoughts on that.
