Yeah, he can still hit the notes, but the timbre is totally different. When he's up that high, the consonants disappear and it becomes a series of "aa's" and "oh's"

The live version of Rowing in London is pure gold. Cornell sounds insanely good on this one:

The last 7-8 songs of the album are the strongest (depending on whether or not you like Halfway There), starting with Bones of Birds. The songs before it aren't "bad", but it's like they frontloaded the modern radio rock, and then decided to either write Soundgarden songs, or visit their B-Sides catalogue from Superunknown and Down On The Upside.



That's why I gave it a 3.5.

Why isn't any of the staff or contributors reviewing this? This album should get a feature.

I saw the video of lollapalooza when they first got back together and cornell sounded awful, but then i saw them at the patriot center in virginia 2 summers ago and he killed it. They played for like 2.5 hours. It was awesome. I'm digging this on first listen. Bringin me back to my child hood. New deftones, new soundgarden, new pumpkins. If rage ever makes another album, that would be amazing.

Rowing is one of the best songs Soundgarden have ever written. Period.

Why would you ever rely on other people's opinions to decide whether to listen to something or not?
