Great album from the masters of grunge
on 20 December 2001
I got this CD yesterday as an early christmas present and Im already hooked. Even though Cornells voice may not be as strong as on later records it still has an unmistakable presence in this album and Thayils guitar sounds as fantastic as it ever did. The whole thing is not immediate as Superunknown but it really grows on you. My favourite tracks are Gun (I like the way it speeds up and then gets heavy!) and Big Dumb Sex. The only thing I can fault with it is that the wonderful Ben Shepherd is not on this to add his music and influence but it still sounds good with Yamamoto on bass. Soundgarden were (and to me they still are) the best grunge band going and Ill still be playing this years from now, along with the three later albums. Louder Than Love definately shows signs of legends in the making and I would recommend it to any grunge fan.
