I have read many reviews of this album since it's release at the end of May and it would appear that there is a very mixed bag of feeling about it. I do feel that perhaps some of the reviews have emerged a bit too hastily without giving it the chance it so deserves. This is an album experience that has to be nurtured.

The common complaint does seem to be that 'it is not Soundgarden' or 'it is not Audioslave'. Yes, that is correct, it's not either of these superb bands. This is Chris Cornell, so why complain?

If you were expecting something along the lines of Soundgarden or Audioslave, forget it and shame on you for even thinking it would be. If that was what Chris wanted to give you, he would have. But he has decided to do his own thing and I for one would like to thank him for his immense talent and inspiration.

I have read tales of disappointment and even comparisons to Robbie Williams. Give me a break, please! Robbie has his place, but he will never be the songwriter or indeed singer that Chris Cornell is. I can understand why some fans might feel disappointment as this is a much more laid back ride through some deeply personal songs that without listening intently, the point would be entirely missed. I don't know what I was expecting, but even I had to listen a few more times before it all made sense to me. And, perhaps that is the point - this collection of songs was designed to be unexpected, forcing the listener to embark on a journey of musical discovery - but only if you are open minded enough.

There is a good mix of tracks, rock, blues, soul and ballads and even a subtle hint of country. Chris has taken these influences which have always been obvious in his music to date and has made a thoroughly enjoyable album with them.

I'm sick of people attacking Cornell for highly superficial problems which they perceive as problems with his solo work. Yes Soundgarden were fantastic, yes Audioslave were great, and yes this isn't either of those bands. Get over it. If you badmouth this fact, what are you saying? That your musical horizons are so narrow that you can't handle an artist as varied as Cornell?

Shame, because this album suggests that Cornell should be considered nothing less than an astonishing songwriter. His melodies and harmonies are blissful, his sense of structure and phrasing are impeccable. Listen to Safe and Scar On The Sky and then try and deny that to me. The rockier songs here (No Such Thing, Poison Eye, Your Soul Today) are equally brilliant.

Four stars only because Cornell's immense talent does unfortunately get spread a little thinly at times across the album's 15 song girth - snip a few tracks and this would be perfect.

Best songs: Safe and Sound, Scar on the Sky, Your Soul Today

Chris Cornell first joined Soundgarden in 1984, he has since produced a pretty large amount of material ranging from grunge into other areas of hard and soft rock through later bits of Soundgarden, his first solo album and his most recent effort (bar this) with rock super-group Audioslave. The last Audioslave album, Revelations, was their most successful and easily their best and it was a shame to hear Cornell was moving back to his solo career but since this was the product we can forgive him.
This album is really really solid, Cornell has stayed well away from the grunge angle and stays with much lighter weight more ballad-style material but this veers it away from the somewhat uneven feel of early Audioslave and makes everything nice and consistent. All of the songs here are well chosen and form a good bit of variety within their overall soft-rock/ballad gene pool. 'No Such Thing' is a decent opener which is the closest to Audioslave on the album, 'Billie Jean' is a surprisingly good take on the Michael Jackson classic that manages to take the song somewhere you'd never have imagined, 'You Know My Name' is of course the theme to Bond reboot Casino Royale but makes a decent little song in itself and it's good to see it in there, and the whole album just hangs together really well making it very rewarding on repeat listens.
Cornell has a great voice for these sorts of songs and his composition shows some genuine originality in his writing and adaptation.

I have been a fan of Chris Cornells since 1996, a bit late by some peoples standards but I was there at the last tour that Soundgarden took and since then I have been a huge fan.

I bought his first solo album in 1999 when it was released and at first thought it to be a poor effort and not at all what I expected. After several listens some tracks started to stand out for me and I now think that its is one of my favourite albums. The same is true here. This album needs more than one listen to appreciate it, there are some great tracks, Arms Around Your Love, Killing Birds and No Such Thing are some examples but the real killer song on this album is Billie Jean. I could not beleive that you could take a great pop song and turn it into an even better blues ballad.

All in all a great record showing Chris' versatility in voice and musical style.

Buy it now!
