Release Date: 1991 | Tracklist


1.Rusty Cage - This song kicks in with a guitar intro thats pretty good
then the drums and bass kick in at about twenty seconds into the song,
then they play the same beat throught the song except the chorus. After
the second chorus Kim plays an awesome guitar riff untill the end of the
song. The lyrics aren't bad, but not that great. 8/10

2.Outshined - This is one of those songs where it starts out kind of mellow then there is a heavy chorus. Kim kicks in the song with an awesome guitar riff and during the chorus, the guitar matches Chris's lyrics well and it all sounds really awesome. 10/10

3.Slaves And Bulldozers - This song starts out with a bass intro from ben then about fifteen seconds into the song Kim kicks in with some cool guitar. I really like the lyrics to this song, it fits the song well.
"That's the second song we did where I blow on the guitar. I'd do it live
and people would think I was playing with my tongue or my teeth or my beard. 'Hey look, he's playing guitar with his beard!' No, I was blowing on it
-- making a wish!" --Kim Thayil. 8/10

4.Jesus Christ Pose - This is my second favorite track from Badmotorfinger, it starts out with awesome drums then the song really gets going when the bass and guitar kick in, and it's not the same thing through out the song, they all sorts of thing that fit the song well. I also really like the
lyrics to this song. 10/10

5.Face Pollution - This is a really cool song that everyone should listen to even though it's not the best song on the album. You'll see once you listen to it. Some parts of the song remind me of Dream Theater. 8/10

6.Somewhere - Chris starts out the song with weird vocals, this is a
slower song on the album, not much to say about it. 7/10

7.Searching With My Good Eye Closed - This song takes a while for it to really kick in because it has weird guitar at the begining. The Lyrics
are pretty good and fit the song well, not much more to say about it.
7/10

8.Room A Thousand Years Wide - This is probably my least favorite song on the CD, mainly because theres really nothing to it, it's pretty much
the same guitar riff through out the song, it's a good guitar riff they
just played it to much in the song. 6.5/10

9.Mind Riot - This is song starts out mellow with nice riffs at the beginingthen it gets a little heavier with a nice guitar line to it, then Chris's vocals kick in and he sounds amazing just like in most of his song. The lyrics are awesome in this song. 8/10

10.Drawing Flies - This is my favorite song on the CD. The song starts out with a fast guitar line and it's awesome, there are also horns in the song that fit the song really well, the lyrics are awesome to. The only bad thing is the song is to short. If you havn't already heard this song LISTEN TO IT!! 10/10

11.Holy Water - A slow and heavy song that includes a nice guitar solo and an awesome chorus, the lyrics are good as well. 8/10

12.New Damage - A really slow song with a slow heavy guitar line as well, not a very well put together song but a good guitar solo, lyrics
are good though, not much else to say about this song. 7.5/10

Final Rating: 8.5/10

Thanks for reviewing this album. I always like "Outshined," "Rusty Cage," and "Jesus Christ Pose," so I assume that the album all of them are in is pretty good too.

IMO this album owns Superunknown....Jesus christ pose, outshined, rust cage, slaves and bulldozers, Drawing flies and Holy water are the best tracks off of this album. I got into Soundgarden after i heard Audoslave.
The only thing i have against this album is Chirs Cornell's voice gets some getting use to (even though it is badass). Good album :thumb:

Good review (in parts). This is my favourite SG album, it's like Led Zep meets Black Sabbath. Only heavier and bluesier than either. With lots of lyrics that mention dogs.

Cornell's voice on this album is probably his best recorded performance to date in my opinion, and one of my top three of all time by any rock singer.

(Well, maybe his performance on "Beyond The Wheel" was better, but that's one song. Still, check the album that one is on out if you've not heard it. You'll thank me later.)

However, I like "Room A Thousand Years Wide" so I would rate it a lot higher than the measly score you gave. The repetition (along with the offbeat groove) makes that song for me. (Then again, I liked "Never The Machine Forever" from "Down On the Upside", so maybe I'm a bit more of a fan of Kim's songwriting than most.)

Badmotorfinger is Soundgarden at it's heaviest. This album reminds me so much of zeppelin songs such as: "Custard Pie", "Ramble On"...etc. It is a really great heavy rock album. The best song is "Outshined", followed by "Mind Riot". There are a couple of songs, however, that I can't really get into, but the one's that I can get into compensate for that. I would give it an 8.5 out of 10, particularly because I give "Down on the upside" a 9, and it is prolly my fave SG album. As a whole Soundgarden really are the only band that remind me of zeppelin......ofcourse the zep's are untouchable with respect to musicianship and music ability. But, at least SG bring some kickass sounds to the table.

Can't be bothered. I don't really like it that much. I've got better things to listen to. That's not to say that it's not a good album though, because it is.

Just in case you didn't know, Rusty Cage is a Johnny Cash cover, but soundgarden does it justice. Jesus Christ Pose is definitely my favorite song off this album

Where did you hear that? According to allmusic.com, it was composed by Chris Cornell and no one else. I've got the list of their songs followed by the composers of each right here:

1 Rusty Cage Cornell 4:25
2 Outshined Cornell 5:10
3 Slaves and Bulldozers Cornell, Shepherd 6:55
4 Jesus Christ Pose Cameron, Cornell, Shepherd 5:50
5 Face Pollution Cornell, Shepherd 2:23
6 Somewhere Shepherd 4:20
7 Searching With My Good Eye Closed Cornell 6:31
8 Room a Thousand Years Wide Cameron, Thayil 4:05
9 Mind Riot Cornell 4:49
10 Drawing Flies Cameron, Cornell 2:26
11 Holy Water Cornell 5:07
12 New Damage Cameron, Cornell, Thayil 5:40
13 Into the Void (Sealth) Butler, Osbourne, Sealth, Ward 6:37
14 Girl U Want Casale, Mothersbaugh 3:29
15 Stray Cat Blues Jagger, Richards 4:46
16 She's a Politician Cornell 1:48
17 Slaves and Bulldozers [live] Cornell, Shepherd 8:38


This is from a remastered edition of the album with some bonus cover tracks on it. "Cameron," "Thayil," "Cornell," and "Shepherd" are all members of Soundgarden though. Judging from the last names, it would appear that there's a Black Sabbath cover, a Devo (?) cover, and a Rolling Stones cover on this album, but no Johnny Cash.
