Mad Season is definitely a super group. Made up of Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam and Screaming Trees. Layne Staley had one of the best vocals in rock. Gone way too soon. This CD has very haunting lyrics about addictions. Mike McCready(Pearl Jam/guitar) thought it would be a good idea for Layne Staley to be around sober people/musicians so he formed this group. It also features Barrett Martin on drums and John Baker Saunders on bass and bonus vocals by Mark Lanegan. The black and white cover was done by Layne Staley and is of himself and his then girlfriend. This is a must in your collection.
