Jerry Cantrell is an American musician who is best known as the lead guitarist, co-lead vocalist and main songwriter for the rock band Alice in Chains. He also has a solo career and released the albums Boggy Depot in 1998 and Degradation Trip in 2002.
Degradation Trip is the second and to date, final solo album by Jerry Cantrell, originally released in 2002. On the album, Cantrell enlisted drummer Mike Bordin (Faith No More) and bassist Robert Trujillo (Suicidal,Tendencies, Ozzy Osbourne). The album was dedicated to Alice in Chains lead singer Layne Staley, who died two months before the album’s release. Degradation Trip featured two singles and was well received by critics, faring better than Cantrell’s solo debut and bearing strong resemblance to his work in Alice in Chains.
A hallmark of Cantrell’s style, many unorthodox rhythms and time signatures are exhibited throughout the album as well as heavy use of wa-wa guitar effect and choir-like vocal harmonies.
The album’s grungy heaviness is balanced, however, by moody acoustic ballads such as the somber “Angel Eyes”. Serene, tangy guitar riffs featured in the likes of “Gone” elude more to Cantrell’s Southern roots.
