  • Summary: Brendan O'Brien produced this third release for the Chris Cornell-led band.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 15
  2. Negative: 1 out of 15
  1. Their most colorful, diverse and consistent record yet.
  2. 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. 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

    Almost all songs in this album are catchy. Nothing extraordinary but consistent.

    Although it seems Tom is becoming a bit too complacent with his quirky guitar riffs and solos (never really expanding his horizons), the void Although it seems Tom is becoming a bit too complacent with his quirky guitar riffs and solos (never really expanding his horizons), the void is filled by a wonderfully funky, foot-stompin rhythm section. Cornell's vocals are less tiresome and less strained on this album than the previous two, but he still has plenty of power. "Revelations" continues to build upon "Out of Exile" and is Audioslave's best album thus far. Expand
