This album came about as a result of the death of Mother Love Bone lead singer, Andrew Wood. He shared a house with Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell and this album is basically his tribute to Andrew. The first two songs that he wrote following Andrew's death were the albums opening tracks, "Say Hello 2 Heaven" and "Reach Down". "Say Hello.." in particular is just beautiful - a sincerely and emotionally written song that is amazingly powerful in it's content and general feel.
Later songs were written when Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament, Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready, who all went on the form Pearl Jam, were drafted in. Tracks such as Hunger Strike, Call Me A Dog and Four Walled World again strike an emotional chord, whilst songs like Reach Down and Pushin' Forward Back provide the rock. This is an excellently crafted, powerful album, which was a perfectly fitting tribute to a man who should have become a rock legend. If you love Pearl Jam, Soundgarden or Mother Love Bone you will find this album a very welcome addition to your collection. Full marks!

This album is probably one of my all time favourites. Chris Cornell's voice has never sounded better, if you want proof listen to the songs 'call me a dog'or 'say hello 2 heaven'. I've had this album for years and never tire of hearing it. Its one of those rare albums that are mesmerising from start to finish, without any rubbish songs in between. If you like epic rock songs with massive vocals go out and buy it, 'hunger strike' (a duet between cornell and eddie vedder) is worth the money alone.

Since I've had this cd in my collection for over 7 years, I feel obligated to share my thoughts about it with all of you. I find it one of the best rock cd's ever made. It sounds like seventies and almost smells like it to. The fantastic artwork is the first thing you must notice. The music however is the real thing. Pure rock as it should be. From the opening "Say hello to heaven" to the closing "All night thing" it's a real blast. The main attraction for me is the sound: so pure and simple ! It's almost like standing in a rehearsel room next to them! The songs are honest as they should be. Since this is a landmark in Seattle rock early 90's, you can expect some of the best songwriting around. Chris Cornell is well known as a writers talent. Listening to songs such as the epic "Reach down", one thing comes to mind: why not more recordings of Temple of the Dog ? The answer is simple : it was a project which Cris initiated after a friends death. The lead singer of Mother Love Bone (there's a name for you!) died and Chris put his emotions and thoughts to music. As pure as his reasons to record this were, as pure sounds the music. My 5 stars go directly on the board since this is MY cd of the decade (maybe even the century).

First heard this in 1992/3. Had this on cassette, cassette got played to death. Got it on CD, ex-girlfreind walked of with it. Loved it then, love it now.
If you like Pearl Jam, Sound Garden, Mother Love Bone etc, you'll enjoy this.

After I little browsing I thought I'd look up an album of mine here on Amazon as I'm sure many of you all do.... Well I was a little shocked to see a lot of reviews under 5 stars in fact a little nothing I was Horrified...someone here felt as though they needed some dance music after a track on this.... quite tragic really.... so I'll add mine.
Ok... first up "Say Hello 2 Heaven" written for and about the late Andrew Wood from Mother love Bone. The song displays and provides insight into the friendship and respect the members here had for Andrew... a true tribute indeed.
Second is the epic grunge dripping mouth-watering "Reach Down" again directly about our late friend and displays the full range of talent that the members here possess. The long guitar solo here is magnificent and leaves you wanting to pick up the instrument yourself (I did) we have Mike McCready to thank for it... an interesting fact about that Is during the recording McCready's headphones fell off early in the solo section and rather than stop and replace-start again he carried on and played it deaf effectively without the backing track... Genius!! How many artists today would do that?....
Third up is "Hunger Strike" you hear alot about this track... Vedder this and Cornell that I don't enter into it... it's a classic and one of the best on the record...simple... all the other crap is unimportant and frankly unnecessary!
Fourth is "Pushin Forward Back" and the first to feature written contrabutions from anybody other than Cornell, yes this includes Hunger Strike, and is a great display from all members once again with Cornell on top form as he is for each and every effort on the album.

I brought this album after being a big fan f both pearl jam and soundgarden and i was not dissapointed. It has to be one of my favourite albums with brilliant guitars and vocals from the members. Highlighs ar Call me a dog and Hunger Strike but the whole album strikes a chord with no bad songs.
