Bought this day after it came out, haven't stopped listening to it since, it is just as the band have described it themselves, they are their own band on this record with their own sound, no just the remains of soundgarden and rage put together. Highlights are Moth, Sound of a Gun, Wide Awake and Shape of things to come, but there is not a bad or mediocre track on the album, they are all outstanding as you come to expect with a band of this calibre. The DVD is pretty good too, just gives you an insight in to the bands thoughts about making the album, and their reasoning for going back into the studio so soon after Out of Exile, which given the results, was the right thing to do! If you liked their first album and felt a bit let down by Out of Exile, this gets back on track, heavy and hard rocking!Alternatively if you liked both albums you will still love this.

Audioslave might reasonably have been forgiven for imagining a conspiracy amongst the world's press to put an end to them. Dogged by breakup rumours since their inception and bedevilled by comparisons to their members' old bands, they finally splintered back into their component parts early in 2007. Before that, though, they cheerfully soldiered through a slew of live dates around the world which established them in the minds of fans, if not of journalists, as a coherent musical force.

They also produced a thoughtful and exploratory sophomore album in 2005's Out of Exile. Although often exciting and surprising it felt transitional, as thought the band were hunting down a new aesthetic which would finally lay the ghosts of Soundgarden and Rage Against The Machine.

It's a shame that this album turned out to be the band's swan-song - because Revelations establishes Audioslave's coherence through a brutally succinct reinterpretation of sounds that probably shaped the band's own musical vocabulary. Lead-off single "Original Fire" recalls rock's glory days over a hard, funky Motown stomp, but strip away the sonic shell and what's left inside sounds like a Springsteen "Nebraska"-era mood-piece.

The other eleven tracks run the gamut of emotional fuel from anger ("Revelations") to agony ("Nothing Left To Say But Goodbye"), but the ferocious musical assault seldom lets up. Tracks such as "Somedays" and "Jewel Of The Summertime" are among the heaviest tracks the band has recorded, although this is very far from mindless riffing.

If you listen to the Audioslave catalogue in succession, you will notice that this, their third and final record sounds a lot crisper, cleaner and tighter than their previous two efforts. Revelations is effectively a second refining of the Audioslave formulae.

The songs are generally more upbeat, guitar oriented and funkier than previous efforts. Tom Morello's Guitar in particular, comes to the forefront on Revelations, with lengthy solos on several tracks. It feels a bit like overkill, but at the same time, Morello is being inventive with his solos. There are fewer stand out anthems of the likes of Cochise or Like a Stone here, but at the same time, the record suffers from much less baggage that dampened their previous two outings.

Revelations is Audioslave's most consistent record, and due to the absence of a supporting tour, their most understated hour. The sounds have more focus and direction. It is notably more vocals and guitar led, but benefits from it, and crucially, is by far the Audioslave record that strives most to move away from the past. Revelations sounds like an Audioslave record, and not a mash of Soundgarden/Rage songs, making it a rewarding listen, and whilst not being a classic, is still a thoroughly worthwhile purchase.

The Bonus DVD is a short but sweet interview featuring clips of the band performing new material. Nothing fantastic but completists will enjoy.

Finally I hear Audioslave, rather than RATM one minute and Soundgarden the nest. I couldn't get into the past 2 albums for that very reason. There was always something there but the songs were never quite hitting home. Listenening to Revelations, it feels like they've really sussed one another out this time. These songs are some dirty filthy rock played as tight as is humanly possible. The next album is going to be 5 stars for sure.

I was intrigued to hear this third release from Audioslave having enjoyed both previous releases. I also approach this being a fan of both Rage Against.. and Soundgarden, not to mention Chris Cornell's solo output.

As the title of this review suggests, I feel a little let down by this album. In my opinion, it is not as great as some of my fellow reviewers would have you believe.

The album starts well with one of the five or so standout tracks but is then followed by six or seven pretty forgettable and uninspiring tracks, save for the very strong Until We Fall.

Other than that, it is not until the closing three tracks that things start to look up considerably. It is probably worth pointing out here that what I consider to be the standout tracks - Wide Awake, Nothing Left To Say... and Moth - all borrow heavily from the Soundgarden/Chris Cornell solo legacy, rather than that of Rage Against... That may put off some potential buyers, as fans of Audioslave seem to approach the band as former followers of either Rage or Soundgarden, rather than both. Let's face it though, whilst I appreciate the work of both acts, Soundgarden, from a strictly musical point of view, were always the more sophisticated and talented of the two bands.

Having said all the above, even if you prefer the Cornell/Soundgarden influence more, there are just about enough tracks here to justify parting with your hard-earned cash. Nothing Left To Say and Moth are both quite excellent and to my mind justify the purchase price alone. If you prefer the catchy, riff-led tracks then there is more than enough to keep you happy.

Overall, worth purchasing, but don't get your hopes up too much on the back of the numerous reviews hailing this as the band's best album to date - it isn't. The band have now taken their riff-led formula as far as it can go. Let's hope the next album sees them produce music which is a little more challenging and less derivitive.
