Slightly upset that "Halfway There" is the next single. It's a good song at all, but I would have preferred something along the lines of "Taree," "Black Saturday," or "Bones of Birds." You know, something that packs a much bigger punch.

Hey, it's King Animal's one year anniversary! At least for the next few minutes where I am.
Just jammed Been Away Too Long and I still don't understand the hate for it.

@Dylan -- I agree, I think Bones of Birds is one of the best songs on here. really sad it might not become a single, but whatevs

@RogueNine -- Been Away Too Long is fine imo. Nothing stellar in terms of SG but a good opener. I agree that it gets way too much hate, at least on this site

Taree is one of the best songs they wrote since Superunknown. Has that 'Fell on Black Days' and 'Overfloater' vibe that suits Cornell's voice. They should stick to this kind of mood for their next record.

Halfway There sounds more like Cornell solo material than Soundgarden.. I'm wondering if he had a left over song and just threw it in to fill space

"First 7 tracks = 4.5
Last 6 tracks = 3.0"

Personally I have it roughly the reverse of that (first 5 tracks are pretty good, last 8 bar "Halfway There" are SG on top of their game), but eh, different strokes for different folks

Really? For the the first 7 (possibly bar #1) are near-perfect songs, the riffs and drumming are so damn tight and the atmosphere is great, really fits the artwork.
The rest of the tracks, especially Halfway There just feel like fairly mainstream rockers, or are boring. Worse Dreams isn't bad though

Both are inconsistent, but I prefer the highlights of DOTU to King Animal's. Still a good comeback album though.

Yeah, DOTU's weakness is definitely the 3rd quarter. With this I'm not too sure, need to jam a couple more times to assess properly.
