  1. Their most colorful, diverse and consistent record yet.

    Bracing stuff. [Oct 2006, p.127]
  3. Despite some missteps... this comes close to fulfilling the promise of Audioslave's pedigree.
  4. If you liked the formula then, you’ll like Revelations now.
  5. The actual music merely offers more of the same oddly faceless brand of heavy rock the group has been cranking out since its 2002 debut.
  6. Once again, the results feel too spotty.
  7. New Musical Express (NME)

    Excruciating fret wankery... appalling metal funk... and Chris Cornell 'singing' like a castrated gibbon throughout. [2 Sep 2006, p.21]

    The already great band has finally come together as a powerful entity of memorable riffs and surprisingly powerful lyrics. Two of the songs The already great band has finally come together as a powerful entity of memorable riffs and surprisingly powerful lyrics. Two of the songs ("Wide Awake" and "Shape of Things to Come") already feel Grammy worthy. A must buy for Audioslave fans, and a favored choice for rock album of the year. Expand

    I gave it a 9 as Revelations is great, but we can always hope for better from these 4 great musicians. I really liked it and I'm getting I gave it a 9 as Revelations is great, but we can always hope for better from these 4 great musicians. I really liked it and I'm getting annoyed by the critics who keep complaining that Audioslave is mostly unmet potential. Dudes, maybe this is it, and maybe you should listen again since these guys rock so hard! I particularly liked Sound of a Gun, Original Fire, Wide Awake, and Nothing Left to Say but Goodbye. Audioslave: Ignore the haters and keep rockin'. Expand

If you accept that these guys aren't trying to do anything more complicated than, well, what they're doing - then you'll be able to enjoy this for what it is. Expand

    Great album... maintains the spirit of the previous two, yet expands outward and upward as Audioslave continues to explore themselves.
