Chris Cornell/Soundgarden/Audioslave: Appreciate!!!
 
:bow:

Been listening to some Cornell today. Thought it was as good a time as any to appreciate! I believe he has a new album coming out this fall, produced by Timbaland. I could swear I heard something while shopping yesterday, but I can't find anything online.

Chris Cornell... what a voice!

Hunger Strike :drool:
Slaves And Bulldozers :combust:
The Day I Tried To Live :drool:

One of the best voices of his generation.

Soundgarden is one of the most innovative and original-sounding bands I´ve ever heard. Every record they´ve published is amazing. Talking about going away at the peak of your creativity...
Temple of the Dog is a beautiful and very emotional eulogy to a talent gone too soon. At least 50% of that record is classic.
Euphoria Morning is a solid solo album, that tried to deviate from Soundgarden material as much as possible.
Audioslave was average at best. Some great songs, but couldn´t live up to the hype. Somehow Morello and Cornell don´t meld IMHO.
Everything post-Audioslave (excluding the concerts which did offer some really cool setlists plus Cornell´s voice is getting much better) is a disaster. If somebody thought the sappy and corny Carry On was bad, listen to this:
YouTube - vCast Street feat. Keri Hilson "Energy" (at the 0:50 mark or something like that).

Seriously, from Beyond the Wheel to that? I cannot honestly think of a greater downfall than our old Chris.

I agree 100%

I disagree with this... Carry On isn't as strong as his first solo record, but it had it's moments. And I don't think there is anything wrong with trying new things and collaborating with Timberland.

I'll toss in a little bit of Cornell/Soundgarden appreciation.

Anyone who used to chill with Eddie Vedder is cool with me.

Great voice. Some great songs. Also, the drummer for Soundgarden was a kid by the name of Matt Cameron...and, yeah, he kicks ass. One of my favorite drummers ever.

Some of my buddies are big into Audioslave...I think I enjoyed a bit of their first album, but the others not so much.

I liked the song Like A Stone. I think that was the one.

Soundgarden>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Cornell solo>>>Audioslave.

I rank Audioslave last cos on paper, every album should have exploded your fucking stereo or Ipod or whatever. That did not happen, sadly.

Soundgarden, though....:drool:

phanan 06-24-2008 08:08 PM

Audioslave was indeed hit or miss.

But when they hit, they fuckin' rocked.

Phanan, name for me your 5 favorite Audioslave tunes.....please.

LemonMelon 06-24-2008 08:14 PM

Audioslave sucked.

Soundgarden was a damn good band, and it's a shame they had to call it quits in the name of his other, much worse projects.

:hmm:

1. Dandelion
2. Show Me How To Live
3. Doesn't Remind Me
4. Like A Stone
5. Shadow On The Sun

That's a random sampling.

That'll do...gonna listen to all 5 and see if I feel like I just rocked.

After those 5, though, I'm gonna listen to "Superunknown".

Keep in mind, when I say rock, I don't mean it in the sense that each song rocks the fuck out. It rocks as in it's fantastic.

You know, like if I was saying, that's a "cracking" good tune.

I assumed that, but thanks for clarifying.

"Cracking" is one of my new favorite words. Interference, you nutty site!

phanan 06-24-2008 09:03 PM

I should go listen to Superunknown myself. Haven't heard it in a while.
