3.0 out of 5 stars The soul`s not in it., 19 April 2003
This review is from: Audioslave (Audio CD)
A lot of people criticised Soundgarden during their career, and these comments were mostly directed at Chris Cornell, who often sounded like a bad impersonation of Robert Plant. As such, I am with most of the people who think that "Superunknown" was their only classic LP, because Cornell stopped pratting around and made some ambitious music. Rage Against The Machine also took a lot of criticism after their first album - this time Tom Morello was criticised for devising very similar-sounding riffs. After these comments, two points became clear - Kim Thayil made Soundgarden, and Zack de la Rocha was the essence of Rage Against the machine.
On that basis, why form Audioslave, because all this situation creates, is a mix of both bands` most dubious members. Chris Cornell is overcompensating more than ever, with the most uninspiring rock screaming, and ridiculous lyrics like "Oh Lord, won`t you keep your good luck to yourself" (I think that`s Track 10). Tom Morello`s guitar simply fails to cross the border between rap-metal and grunge on most of the songs, and what you`re left with is a mediocre album that, to be honest, is a shadow of what both bands were.
I think it`s time Chris Cornell stopped trying to be the Godfather of Grunge, and handed the crown to Kurt with a bit of dignity in tact.
