We gave it a C+

With Alice in Chains on hiatus — due to…well, who knows why — the band’s dirty-riffin’ guitarist releases a solo CD that could almost pass as a sludge-rock sequel to 1995’s Alice in Chains. The album opens promisingly enough with the head-thumpin’ ”Dickeye” and swagglin’ ”Cut You In.” But Boggy Depot soon gets bogged down in a stew of meandering retro-grunge, and you find yourself yearning for Layne Staley’s creepy tenor wailings over Cantrell’s broody noodlings. C+
