Jar of Flies is the third studio EP by the American rock band Alice in Chains, released on January 25, 1994, through Columbia Records. This is Alice in Chains' second acoustic EP, preceded by 1992's Sap, and it is the first EP in music history to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, with the first week sales exceeding 141,000 copies in the United States. The EP was self-produced by the band and recorded over the course of a week at the London Bridge Studio in Seattle

Release Date: January 25, 1994. Record Label: Columbia.

While not their most definitive album (that honor belongs to 1992's Dirt), Jar of Flies represents an important step in Alice in Chains' recording career. Witness "I Stay Away," which is made up of equal portions of hummable guitar riffs and the spookier, scarier, more grinding elements that most fans associate with Alice in Chains

All lyrics from Jar of Flies album, popular Alice In Chains songs with tracklist and information about album. Album Jar of Flies (1994). Layne Staley, Darrell Peters, Randy Biro.

Jar of Flies was the first and only EP to reach in the US album Billboard chart. The name comes from a high school science experiment of Jerry Cantrell (arist). He took two jars, filled one with flies and food; the other with two flies and no food. The flies without food ended up eating each other. Evolving from the alternative, progressive sound of the first track to more traditional ballads, the album seems to pay respects to Cantrell's musical roots

Written and recorded in about a week, Jar of Flies solidified Alice in Chains' somewhat bizarre pattern of alternating full-length hard rock albums with mostly acoustic, ballad-oriented EPs. That quirk aside, Jar of Flies is a low-key stunner, achingly gorgeous and harrowingly sorrowful all at once. In a way, it's a logical sequel to Dirt - despite the veneer of calm, the songs' voices still blame only themselves.
