Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The debut of thundering supergroup Audioslave--featuring members of Rage Against the Machine post-Zack de la Rocha with ex-Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell--is as much curio as fascinating blend of visions. Cornell might be outnumbered, but his unmistakable holler and nihilistic imagery ensure that Audioslave, the album, recalls early Soundgarden. That's especially true since de la Rocha took Rage's signature rap and politicking with him. Still, if this is Soundgarden, it's Soundgarden set to stun. Rage guitarist Tom Morello is more of a mauler than Kim Thayil ever was--witness "Shadow on the Sun", which moves from bruising thud to psychedelic freak-out and back again--while the Rage rhythm section of Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk anchor the bottom end with pure instrumental cement. Intentionally or not, "Gasoline" bears passing resemblance to "Rusty Cage", while the sweeping "I Am the Highway" and slow-burning "The Last Remaining Light" best showcase Cornell's surprisingly New Age-y lyrical bent. Cover art by Storm Thorgerson--who gave Pink Floyd records their distinctive stamp--underscores the set's inherent celebrity. Fans of Rage and Soundgarden can raise clenched fists in unison, for Audioslave is win-win. --Kim Hughes

5.0 out of 5 stars Puts the pretenders in their place! 23 Jan 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After a mountain of hype and a couple of false starts, Audioslave finally release their first album. The problem with a group like this (like you didn't know, 3/4 Rage, 1/4 Soundgarden) is that even before people have heard them - and music critics in particular - it's too easy to dismiss them as a gimmick, or to attempt to pigeonhole the music before you hear it.
Strangely I've read the odd review slating the lyrics as OTT, which to me is completely ridiculous. Yes, a lot of the lines are very reaching psychedelically, but with Chris Cornell's voice sounding better (and showing better range than ever before), it's so right! Anyway, slagging off they lyrics just points back to the original naysayers looking for flaws.
So, to the music. Tom Morello said a while back that this album would show how wrong people are to suggest that rock returned with chumps like The Vines, and how right he was. The opening track sets the tone, sounding a perfect amalgamation of RATM and Soundgarden. 'Cochise' has to be one of the best opening tracks to an album ever, with Cornell's voice the absolute epitomy of 'rock vocals' while the frenzied drumming and ever present guitar creat a truly brilliant tune.
Tracks like 'Gasoline', 'What You Are' and (next single) 'Like a Stone' continue in this vein, until you get to 'I Am the Highway'. This song is the business, the kind of rock (I'm loathe to say this) 'ballad' that just isn't around these days. Cornell's voice is at it's most sensitive here and, coupled with some of the aforementioned lyrics ("I am not your autumn moon, I am the night") this is an epic rock tune in the finest 70s mould. As a single, it could potentially be huge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Audioslave "Set it Off" with debut album! 20 Nov 2002
Format:Audio CD
Wow! This is an amazing album! I was, and still am, a huge fan of Soundgarden and Rage Against the Machine so I had been eagerly awaiting the release of this one. Like others I was unsure of how Chris Cornell's voice would fit with the music, but after a mere minute of the album I realised how wrong I'd been! He always had a great voice, and it sounds as fantastic and emotional as ever. This should come as no surprise to Soundgarden fans of course, but what is surprising is how well it melds with the music.
This album is so much more than just Chris singing over the top of Rage riffs. Tom Morello, Brad Wilk, and Tim Commerford continue to sound innovative and inspiring, but have adapted their mucial direction somewhat to fit more closely with Chris's awesome voice. The Rage influence is still obvious of course (see opening track "Cochise" for a particualrly Rage-like example!), but there are some important differences which give "Audioslave" a sound all of their own. Some of those Tom Morello guitar sounds are truly amazing! They may have shed Rage's overt political edge, but Chris's existential lyrics are still extremely impressive and thought-provoking, and completely relevant to the here and now
In short, this is a magnificent album and one that remains an essential purchase for fans of Soundgarden and Rage Against the Machine alike, but even for those of you who don't like these two bands, there is so much going on with this album that I would still recommend it. Let's just hope it isn't a one-off album like so many releases of such so-called "supergroups" can be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock's newest "supergroup" triumph! 20 Nov 2002
Format:Audio CD
“Audioslave”, the long-awaited collaboration between ex-Soundgarden vocalist and occasional guitarist Chris Cornell and “the other three” from Rage Against the Machine, is finally here. And it’s very, very good. The lead-off track, “Cochise”, was a wily choice as a single, as it suckers the public with just what they’re expecting: Rage-style hard-rock backing topped with Soundgarden-style screaming from Cornell. However, the rest of the LP reveals that there’s more to Audioslave than the sum of their old bands’ parts. “The Last Remaining Light” is a widescreen number which probably deserves the dubious accolade of “epic”, if one only had the stomach to use it, and “I Am the Highway” is as grand as the title suggests.
Produced by Rick Rubin, who also produced the final Rage Against the Machine album, “Renagades”, along with such fare as the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ 1991 mega-seller “Blood Sugar Sex Magik”, the album is an eclectic brew which manages to retain a cohesive identity. Rubin brings out the best in his charges, and it seems they bring out the best in one another, pushing themselves and their bandmates to new heights of endeavour. Cornell has never screamed better (or more often), but there’s a light and shade, a maturity to be found in his vocal performances that was sorely lacking from 1999’s pin-up album “Euphoria Morning”. Guitarist Tom Morello also shines, his trademark rhythmic dissonance and almost Dadaist approach to guitar soloing joined here by playing of remarkable emotional depth. Who would have thought that the man who gave us “Bombtrack” could also play the blues?
