Same thing happened to Megadeth.. "Peace Sells.. but Who's Buying?" and "Rust In Peace" were their best albums before a decline.
The grunge scene was the last great thing to happen to the music industry. In terms of true artists. The emotion you hear out of Layne and Kurt is mind blowing. Layne has one of the greatest voices to ever be heard in rock....EVER.
