JesseJul 19, 2004Cornell has the best voice in rock, and Tom Morrello does things with the guitar others can only dream about
daveGDec 6, 2002The best album I've heard in 10 years. Cornell's social commentary along with some powerful, angry licks from Morello and Co. The best album I've heard in 10 years. Cornell's social commentary along with some powerful, angry licks from Morello and Co. provide a veritable masterpiece. Unlike most albums, which feature a radio-friendly song and little else, Audioslave has no throwaway songs. In fact, the album doesn't even hit its peak until track 10, the brooding, ``Hypnotize.'' Talk about a reality check for the wealthy powerstructure and corporate elite!!! While many people think that Superunknown was Soundgarden's best album, I always preferred Badmotorfinger. Superunknown contained four or five of radio hits, but little else. To really gather the flavor of what Soundgarden (and indeed the entire grunge movement) stood for, you need to back up to the 1991 masterpiece which features ``Rusty Cage'' and ``Outshined'' along with obscure, yet important tracks such as ``Somewhere,'' ``Mind Riot'' and ``Drawing Flies.'' I'm recommending it to all my friends, and to all my family young enough to understand... Dave Grumbois… Expand

NseENov 5, 2003Great cd full of great songs like the razor sharp 'Like a stone', 'What you are', 'I am a highway', Great cd full of great songs like the razor sharp 'Like a stone', 'What you are', 'I am a highway', 'Hypnotize' (Which does just that), and the epic 'Getaway car' with Chris Cornell's forlorn voice bleeding throughout. Downside, a couple of ok tracks and songs tend to go on for too long and you feel it.… Expand
