so i was listening to the "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" album from Alice In Chains (i think its pretty wicked myself) and i noticed how the style was different from old school AIC

Examples

Classic AIC

Alice In Chains - Rooster

New AIC

Alice In Chains - Stone

I think they are both fantastic personally, but it is definitely different not just because of the new vocals but in style as well.

what do you prefer?

Whenever I hear their new stuff on the radio I'm always impressed by the new lead singer. They seem to have maintained their old sound quite well.

But then I never really listened to more than their greatest hits album, so a more avid fan would notice more. I should try to get into them though, I've always liked 90's grunge and the like.

I love both new and old. I can't really name a preference. It sucks that Layne is gone, but Jerry sounds soooo good. It irritates me when people start with that "they should change the name of the band, it's not Alice without Layne" shit because Jerry was the one who wrote all the music and most of the lyrics. If Jerry was gone, then the name should be changed. Either way, if you guys like AiC, then you should check out Jerry's solo albums, they're pretty fantastic.

Old are far better than the new AIC. I love the new too, amazing job after so much time, still have their own original style but the old AIC just had more quality. I guess when you have bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and much more as competition, you have to make a "masterpiece" so you can be noticed.

Although I like the new stuff I absolutely love the old stuff. Man in the Box hooked me and Rooster kept me listening. Layne's Mad Season stuff was amazing too.

I Personally like the old Alice in Chains better.

Not saying the new stuff isn't great, because it is.
I could definitely see Layne singing the tracks off of "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here." Especially this one:

Obviously the old Alice in Chains will always be better, but I love the new stuff, too. Black Gives Way to Blue is right up their with the classic material, and probably one of the best 'comeback' albums ever. I love that they carried this band on not in the spirit of an easy cash grab, but out of the desire to make music together and hold up Layne's legacy. Plus, they're all insanely nice dudes who deserve their continued success, I got lucky enough to meet them in 2010 and they're so humble and friendly.
