The most perplexing and thought provoking song and album title ever conceived?!



Quote: I am very much looking forward to the new Alice In Chains record, but when the band released the title of the album, I was a bit perplexed. It's called The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, and it comes out on May 28th. Recently, the band shed some light on the meaning of the title.

Guitarist Jerry Cantrell and drummer Sean Kinney spoke to Noisecreep about the album title, saying they are prodding religion a bit:

"They're not wrong for believing that dinosaur stuff, but we aren't wrong for asking them to explain it either," says Kinney. "Are we supposed to believe that some little mythical dude with cloven hooves cruised around the planet hiding bones that were millions of years old to fool us for some ğkking reason? It's ridiculous."

The band is taking a stand, and is over the hypocrisy of religion, it seems. Jerry Cantrell chimed in:

"It's insane when a religion tells you it's OK to strap a bomb on yourself to blow someone else up because they believe in something different. If a religion is teaching you that it's OK to hurt somebody, exclude somebody, dominate somebody – I have a problem with it. 'The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here' just speaks to the lamer parts of how those things are taught and the shitty things we do to each other because of our different beliefs."

Is the song a little too long for today's listeners?

I like it, strangely enough.

Thankfully theres still many people around the globe who are not narrow minded who still have attention spans longer than one or two minutes who still enjoy and appreciate listening to progressive musical artistry and thought provoking lyrics (*-*)

Well, I usually listen to the golden oldie songs that came along with my youth, so I am accustomed to just kicking back and chilling to long songs.

You know I'm definitely the same way for sure...

I love so many different songs and albums from all time periods and especially during the constant artistic ascent from around the 1940s right through till the early 1990s...

As after then seems to have ushered into our mainstream a steady descent in the overall quality of popular music although there were and are still a few gems...

By the way that red colored horned triceratops skull album cover posted above sure does look devilish and satanic...

Quote: The cover artwork features the skull of a Triceratops with a second skull image steganographically hidden on a red background. The two skulls, when revealed, combine to form the image of the Devil. The album title refers to a belief held by some religious individuals that to confuse the masses of humanity, Satan himself planted dinosaur bones deep into the Earth to dissuade the faithful.

The inner artwork includes images of other dinosaur skulls steganographically overlapped in a similar manner to the front cover, including two pachycephalosaurs and Ankylosaurus. Additional imagery is also revealed when the CD tray is removed from the jewel case.

Quote: Dirt is Alice in Chains' major artistic statement and the closest they ever came to recording a flat-out masterpiece.

It's a primal, sickening howl from the depths of Layne Staley's heroin addiction, and one of the most harrowing concept albums ever recorded.

Not every song on Dirt is explicitly about heroin, but Jerry Cantrell's solo-written contributions (nearly half the album) effectively maintain the thematic coherence -- nearly every song is imbued with the morbidity, self-disgust, and/or resignation of a self-aware yet powerless addict.

Cantrell's technically limited but inventive guitar work is by turns explosive, textured, and queasily disorienting, keeping the listener off balance with atonal riffs and off-kilter time signatures.

Staley's stark confessional lyrics are similarly effective, and consistently miserable. Sometimes he's just numb and apathetic, totally desensitized to the outside world; sometimes his self-justifications betray a shockingly casual amorality; his moments of self-recognition are permeated by despair and suicidal self-loathing. Even given its subject matter,

Dirt is monstrously bleak, closely resembling the cracked, haunted landscape of its cover art. The album holds out little hope for its protagonists (aside from the much-needed survival story of "Rooster," a tribute to Cantrell's Vietnam-vet father), but in the end, it's redeemed by the honesty of its self-revelation and the sharp focus of its music.
