Chris Cornell - Carry On - Cd

Amazon.co.uk

Change has been a constant in Chris Cornell's life since Soundgarden split in 1997. Sober and over 40 now, he lives in France with his wife and daughter. His first solo album (1999's Euphoria Morning) was lauded in the press, but disregarded by the public. And his supergroup Audioslave eventually fizzled after a trio of albums. But on Cornell's long-awaited sophomore solo effort, it's obvious something hasn't been altered: the voice, a distinguished instrument still pure and resonant--and authoritative enough to take on Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" and turn it from throbbing dancefloor anthem to portentous ballad. The unforeseen cover is sequenced midway through 14 tracks that have Cornell softening the edges of his music without losing the power of the messenger. No less than a half-dozen songs have hit potential, including "Arms Around Your Love," with its soaring chorus, the R&B-flecked "She'll Never Be Your Man," and "No Such Thing," where restrained verses give way to crunchy-riffed choruses. He uses the bluesy "Safe and Sound" to call for peace, asking "Why can't we pull it together?" Ten years after the breakup of his pioneering band, Chris Cornell has done just that, and it's evident that the change has done him good. --Scott Holter

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

I bought this album as I am a huge Soundgarden, they are my favourite rock band, Chis Cornell has a rock voice which not many other rock singers can equal, however on this album he brings out the softer side in his voice aswell which is great, Overall a great covers album with some different but still great renditions of popular songs!!!

Chris Cornell is an American icon. Through his reign as Soundgarden's dark grunge god to his stint at the helm of classic rock band Audioslave, he's never failed to push the boundaries of genre, whether turning base metal into alternative gold or teaching a rap-rock act like RATM the meaning of modulation.

His ornate 1999 solo album Euphoria Morning failed to catch on, with its reclusive creator's deepening substance abuse problems perhaps contributing to its commercial collapse. Cornell's certainly not making the same mistake again - clean, sober and solo, he's currently on a triumphant world tour playing material from right through his career.

The songs on Carry On are generally more accessible than those on his former solo effort, but that's not to say he's abandoned his old instinct for experiment. With legendary producer Steve Lillywhite behind the desk he's trying on different styles for size, mixing the all-out attack of opener No Such Thing and the drama of Bond theme You Know My Name, with the wistful pop of lead-off single Arms Around Your Love and the romantic, Rufus Wainwright-ish sweep of Disappearing Act. Although few listeners will take all sixteen tracks to heart, nearly all have something bold to offer.

Then, there's the much-referenced cover of Michael Jackson's dance classic Billie Jean - chosen, Cornell says, for its sheer improbability. In his hands it becomes a brooding murder ballad set to a slow-burning blues: depending on your attitude to the original, you'll either love its dark drama or reject its audacity.

Chris Cornell's only other solo effort Euphoria Morning is my favourite album of all time so this one had a lot to live up for this particular listener! I have to say - I am not dissapointed in the slightest. The most talked about aspect of Cornell is obviously the range and power of his voice but I feel the amazing songwriting ability and the manner in which he manages to convey emotion are often overlooked. This album is an eclectic mix of styles but does not feel disjointed in the slightest. I think there is something for everyone. The opener No Such Thing is a powerful frenetic rock song but blues, r n' b, ballads and even emotional happy love songs are all represented. My standout tracks at the moment are Disappearing Act and to me the much talked about cover of Billie Jean just works. It shouldn't but does and conveys a whole darker side of the song. In whole if you are looking for Soundgarden mark 2 then I suggest you head back 10 years but if you admire Cornell's voice in any of his incarnations then I would strongly suggest giving this album a go. I doubt you will be disappointed.
