AllMusic Review by

This tribute features 12 Alice in Chains favorites performed by a group of unknowns and studio musicians. While the album is sonically appropriate, and its guitar tones and more match those of its feted group, the run-of-the-mill vocals are no match for Layne Staley's expressive yowl, nor are the harmonies that defined AIC's sound remotely available on this record. The chiming "No Excuses" comes close, but nothing else on this tribute is very notable.
