The storm has passed, leaving the mind adrift. It remains a placid acceptance of the consequences: a reflection on self-imposed isolation and the continuous search of escape. Jar of Flies, published after Dirt success, follows Sap path through acoustic territories. This handful of velvety ballads (recorded in just one week, when Nirvana were performing their unplugged concert) is one of the most touching and deepest snapshots of that period. In its melancholy and disillusion it hides a subtle trace of romantic hope that warms the glacial atmospheres typical of AIC. Reunification of flesh and soul (fluctuating, dissociated and out of focus in Dirt music) is now possible in the transitory ray of light represented by Jar of Flies. A springtime sun - with a bitter-sweet taste - that casts a last light through the haze.
