1 of 1 thought this review was well written

Overall I think that this might Audioslave's best Album yet. It contains all the stuff that previous fans like about them and also has some new and unique stuff to keep up interest and attract new fans. Heres the track by track breakdown.

1. Revelations- One of my favorites, Great Song and a really good way to start the album. Starts out with a nice slow arpeggio progression and then the drums come in nicely and theres a sweet main riff. Cornell voice is also really good on this track.
Good Features: Awesome Intro and really cool riff throughout the song

2. One and the Same - Really funky and cool song. The intro is a cool wah sounding guitar riff that repeats throughout the song. Also theres a nice solo by Morello.
Good Features: Opening Guitar, Tom Morello Guitar solo

3. Sound of a Gun - cool opening riff that leads into a very RATM reminiscent riff. Cornell's voice is also great on this track. Another cool solo from Morello.
Good Features: Solo, interlude

4. Until We Fall - One of the slower songs on the album. Reminds me of "I am the Highway". Nice vocal melody and and guitar progression stand out. Not a big fan of the transition from verse to Chorus but overall a pretty good slower track.
Good Features: Vocal Melody

5. Original Fire- Starts out with Vocals and Drums which is a cool way to lead into a song. First single released from the album. pretty catchy melody and a really cool bass line.
Good Features: Bass lines

6. Broken City - Very cool bassline, somber sounding and very nice vocal melody. Also some nice guitar work by Morello throughout the track.
Good Features : Bass line, Vocal Melody

7. Somedays - One of my lesser favorites on the album. Kind of a departure from most Audioslave songs. However the guitar riff during the chorus is pretty cool.
Good Features: Guitar

8. Shape of things to come- Very nice verses in the song on account of all instruments and vocals, works real well together. Powerful chorus and one of my favorite guitar solos on the album that really shows Morello's talent.
Good Features : Solo, Verse

9. Jewel of the Summertime - A litte different than most audioslave songs but very good. Real catchy and good vocals. Also the bass stands out a lot in this song and is really effective in driving the song.
Good Features: Vocals, Bass

10. Wide Awake - opens with a repetitive yet pretty cool bassline. Powerful lyrics and a really nice chorus. One of my favorites on the album. Also has a guitar solo that strays from the usual effect filled Tom Morello solo and really fits well into the song.
Good Features: Lyrics, Solo, Chorus

11. Nothing Left to say but Goodbye - Opens with a strange sounding guitar riff. Not a big fan of this one. Although Cornell's voice does sound good on it. Does happen to feature a cool interlude towards the end that leads back into a verse.
Good Features: Vocals

12. Moth - Another one of my favorites and a good way to close out a great album. Opens with cool guitar work and a great bassline. The an awesome drums fill leads into a powerful riff that opens the song. This one really showcases all aspects of the band. Great vocal melody and vocals, and a very cool chorus.
Good Features: Bass lines, Guitar riffs, Drums, Vocals, Chorus

Standout Tracks: Revelations, Moth, Wide Awake

Overall this album is one of Audioslave's best and is a definite buy for any fan of Audioslave, RATM, or soundgarden. For any fans of this band who haven't heard any RATM or soundgarden you should definitely check out albums like superunknown from Soundgarden or The Battle of Los Angeles by Rage against the Machine. Hope you enjoyed the review.

i liked this review. i dont know if id like this. before i realized chris cornell was the singer in this band i never had much respect for them because i always thought the singer was ripping off chris cornell. i'll have to hear a few more singles before i get this.

Not a bad review, still yet to hear this album.

I tend not to like reviews which are so clear in the oppinion from the start though, your intro could easilly have been a conclusion.

This review is for people who've listened to the album. Its more like your view on the whole album and doesn't lead the unaware listener to a definite choice. But overall a decent review, agreed with most of your views on each song.

I waited for this album all summer and just got it yesterday. The groove on Revelations is so good, and Cornell is singing better than ever. Morello shreds the place apart, and Timmy C. and Brad Wilk definately deliver in the rhythm dept. Moth is my favorite on the album. Check it out!

its good to see audioslave progressing. imo, their first album was a very thinly disguised RATM. out of exile was much better and this one pretty much picked up where they left off.
