Obsessing 7 with Alice in Chains

In the early innocence of AIC, they ventured into 7 just for a partial part of one song, a hit song I might add. The pre-verse and verse are in 7/4, and the rest is in 4/4. Sometimes what gives this away is when the singer holds a note because the are not used the feel of the meter. It works here, and so does Cantrell's 7-solo phrasing. Being as creative and inventive as they are, I would/will like to see more experimental with odd meters. If they can hair toss like this to 7 imagine what they could do in 21/8.

Keepin' it ODD,
BetZe13 Tune in
