"...Rather, the record sounds as though it was genuinely ripped straight from the band's peak years in the early 90s. Even without Staley's iconic voice, Black Gives Way to Blue is classic Alice in Chains." (

"'s a heavy listen aesthetically and atmospherically, drawing greatly from Jerry Cantrell's (sometimes in tandem with DuVall) sludgy guitar riffs. "A Looking in View" and "Last of My Kind" are two of the band's heaviest songs to date, and sometimes borrow from metal. The latter is the more aggressive of the pair and features DuVall at the forefront, barking his angriest lines on the album. "A Looking in View" takes a more traditional route, incorporating Cantrell/DuVall vocal harmonies to the track's oppressive sound. Not all tracks are reliant on heaviness; the layered guitars in "All Secrets Known" allow the track to retain the group's heat-choked atmosphere while adopting a melodic flair and "Acid Bubble" is a depressing, slow building number reminiscent of "Rooster". "When the Sun Rose Again" strips the distortion away Jar of Flies style; despite lacking the sheer strength of "All Secrets Known" or even accessible single "Check My Brain", the song makes for one of Black Gives Way to Blue's most powerful moments, particularly the ominous line, "Were you burned away / When the sun rose again?" The title track completely differs from past Alice in Chains works, and sees Cantrell and Elton John come together on guitar and piano respectively in one of the most moving songs Alice in Chains has ever written.."
