Dan Kaye, a well known journalist who writes for the likes of Kerrang!, Metal Edge, Revolver, and others, has been spending some time listening to the new Jerry Cantrell music. What's the word? "Jerry Cantrell's new album, Degradation Trip, is a masterful return for one of heavy rock's most unique and innovative players and songwriters. Ominous, swirling tapestries of haunting melodies and vocals merge with crushing barrages of thunderous guitar to fashion an eerie sound that other acts may imitate, but never duplicate. Add some of the most personal and unsparing lyrics the man has ever written, and it's easy to hear why Degradation Trip may be one of the most authentic and electrifying rock records of 2002." -- Don Kaye Current plans are for a May 2002 release of Jerry Cantrell's Degradation Trip.
