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.

I couldn't wait to hear Audioslave's first album. When I heard about the collaboration between Chris Cornell, one of the most distinctive singers in rock music and the remains of Rage Against The Machine, one of the best bands of the nineties, it was not a case of "Will it be any good?" but more one of "Just how good will it be?". I was not dissapointed. It was superb - easily the best rock record of the decade so far, and translated brilliantly to the live shows they performed in the follow-up tour.

The second album was a different kettle of fish. It just lacked any of those moments that really raise the heartbeat and give you that surge of energy that rock fans live for. It was steady, but nothing more.

I was taken by surprise at the speed with which the band released this third album - it is only a year on from the last one. With such haste comes a fear that things have been rushed and quality has suffered as a result. Was the band aware that the second album was not as well received as the first and thus rushed more material out to try to minimise the damage to a growing reputation? If that was the case it hardly matters because this is an excellent collection of songs.

The overall sound harks back to the Red Hot Chilli Peppers in the early nineties, before they grew old and slowed down, crossed with a heavy dose of Led Zeppelin and even a hint of late eighties cock rock. Somehow this all adds up to a big growling funky beast, with all four members sounding like they are enjoying themselves. The enjoyment is infectious. There are a couple of songs of the more mature, calmer variety, but mostly these songs are loud, mean and display a similar sort of rough groove to that in Rage's best work.

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.

The second Audioslave album had less impact than the first and took a few listenings to appreciate in full. This one is an instant hit like their first album, so a brilliant return to top excellence. Amazingly enough, this seems like it was recorded in the same session as the first cd. I don't know, maybe too much was expected from the second album, maybe not as much from this one, but this is an album that unexpectedly took me in on first hearing. And now it runs in a loop at home and in the car. Absolutely great cd !

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.

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.
