Biography

SOUNDGARDEN BIO – KING ANIMAL

“When I think of Soundgarden, I think of a sound, I think of one entity, one organic thing,” says singer and guitarist Chris Cornell, “but I guess that the exciting part is that it’s always been really varied.”

Hailed as grunge innovators, Soundgarden redefined rock music for a generation. In the 80s and 90s, the ... Read more in Amazon's Soundgarden Store

BBC Review

With the Knights of the Soundtable riding once more after 13 years apart, the time is right for an in-depth retrospective of one of the grunge era’s best-loved bands. Soundgarden, Seattle natives at the epicentre of the early 1990s’ plaid-and-flannel rock scene, already have one best-of to their name, 1997’s A-Sides. But Telephantasm goes further, spreading itself across 24 tracks and two discs, including excellent live performances alongside commercially released singles.

Favourites from these two-dozen numbers are sure to be selected according to listener age. As someone (just) in their early 30s, the Badmotorfinger and Superunknown cuts are instant reminders of my early explorations into what most parents would, at the time, have considered an unlistenable racket. These two long-players – the band’s third and fourth, from 1991 and 1994 respectively – are widely acknowledged to be the band’s best collections, and with good reason: plot a graph of their MTV-assisted mainstream fortunes and it’ll peak between the pair, primarily due to the plethora of brilliant singles from the period. From Badmotorfinger, Outshined and Rusty Cage enjoyed minor success in the UK; from Superunknown, Black Hole Sun reached number 12 in the UK and topped the chart in the US, while Spoonman and Fell on Black Days were also stateside top ten hits.

This can be seen as something of a surprise, as while association with the scene that spawned the globe-conquering Nirvana didn’t harm Soundgarden’s chances of breaking through, their sound owed much more to Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath – battleship-sized basslines, belt-it-out vocals – than it did the scrappy punk outfits that appealed to Cobain and company. Soundgarden were old back when they were new, meaning that much of Telephantasm doesn’t sound horribly dated. Its raw charms may have aged, but they’re sharper than same-era cuts from fellow Seattleites Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains.

The earliest songs here, from 1988 debut Ultramega OK (Flower, Beyond the Wheel) and the following year’s Louder Than Love (Big Dumb Sex, Hands All Over), lack the production punch of later fare. But the songwriting craft exhibited by frontman Chris Cornell and ex-bassist Hiro Yamamoto (replaced by Ben Shepherd in 1990) is already showing plenty of promise. Cornell would follow Soundgarden’s final LP, 1996’s thoroughly decent Down on the Upside (Burden in My Hand, Pretty Noose), with a string of less-appealing projects which culminated in a truly awful third solo LP, 2009’s Scream. But his various lows can be forgiven by just a single listen to this compilation’s numerous nose-bleeding highs, closed out by a previously unreleased and suitably low-end-centric treat, Black Rain, from the Badmotorfinger sessions.

Having heard the good news Soundgarden were reforming I was equally happy when I heard they were releasing a new album. Of course being a compilation of their work isnt as good as a whole new album, but the inclusion of a DVD with video's from some of their singles made this a must have purchase. There is also a previously unreleased track on the second CD from their Badmotorfinger days called Black Rain which is a stonking tune.
While the other tracks can be found on their old albums, quite a few of them are actually live versions and this is the first SG album to contain Birth Ritual which was previously released on the Singles film soundtrack.
If you are a Soundgarden fan like me, and even though you may have all their albums, this is still an essential purchase. For Soundgarden newbies who like grunge music or similar then again, you cant go wrong with this album.

This has to be the ultimate package for not just Soundgarden fans, but any fan of 90's grunge. Although spearheaded by Nirvana, the Seattle grunge movement (in particular those on the Sub Pop label) produced many fine bands - Alice In Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Mudhoney etc, but the finest of whom (in my opinion) were Soundgarden..sounding very reminiscent of Black Sabbath but with a contemporary twist. This collection includes 24 superb tracks and 20 videos.
Watching these videos again, some of which I've not seen in 20 years (!) , almost brought a wee nostalgic tear to my eyes - these songs and videos really were a soundtrack to my youth (I'm 39) . Highly recommended to all you old school fans out there, and if you're a youngling? Buy this!

Great quality pressing of 24 tunes from the 'Garden. As a retrospective collection, there are several tracks from their back catalogue which I'd have included at the expense of some on here. Somewhere, Head Down, Drawing Flies, Mind Riot, Nothing To Say, Let Me Drown, Ugly Truth...but who cares...if you're a fan you'll have them all.

Out-take 'Black Rain' sounds lime it was recorded circa 1990 and is impressive. Early stuff is well represented and Hunted Down is great indeed. Things peak without a doubt on Side three with the first three tracks from Badmotorfinger making up that side of the platter.

Also worth noting that nobody has remastered these tracks...they're as they were originally recorded. Which is exactly the way it should be.

Enjoy!

I'll be quick:
I have the whole Soundgarden discography,and I bought this "collection" just for one reason:
The DVD with the videos. Black rain is excellent but it does not justify the buy by itself.

The DVD is recognized as region 1 by a PC but is played without problems on sn European PS3.

mix of soundgarden before chris cornell took up lead vocals and after; great all the way through. Includes classic tracks like Black Hole Sun; sounds particularly good on vinyl and even better that you get a rip of the vinyl so you have an MP3 version as well.

the video collection complied gives a great insite into the band that has sometimes been overlooked, with extended and unscene videos. The three disc collection with 2 cds and dvd is a brilliant introduction for anyone. I would only recommend this deluxe collection if you really into the band and enjoy playing LP's. Soundgarden it is good to have you back!
