SOUNDGARDEN LOUDER THAN LOVE reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

aglasshouse
As I think everyone has at one point, I used to only think of SOUNDGARDEN as an alternative rock band that produced the only song I knew ('Superunknown').

This is not at all the case though, quickly realized I after checking out SG's LOUDER THAN LOVE. Like a heavy grunge ridden sponge, this album hit me in the face repeatedly with every track it produced upon listening. Usually, this is a bad thing, but in the opinion of a metalhead, this was glorious.

Okay, enough poetry. This album is really good. Let me explain why LOUDER THAN LOVE is better than most of what they produced afterwards.

The tone is, deliberately I'm guessing, angry. Rage ridden songs are very abundant on this release. A good example is probably my favorite track, 'Gun'. It starts with a crashing cymbal which quickly, with the entrance of a scream from Cornell, into crunching guitar riffs. These riffs fluctuate from quicker slamming notes to the thundering slow riffs. All the while, Chris Cornell is just screaming his heart out while the beat carries them onward. Of course, 'Gun' isn't the only example of a raging track on here. There are classics, like 'Hands All Over', 'Big Dumb Sex', and 'Full on Kevin's Mom', that literally scream "red-faced" to you.

I mean, not all people like this sound of course; in fact, it enrages most people to the extent of hating it. This could be the reason why this doesn't have a rating of 4.00 or higher on here, but I mean it's just my opinion that it should be that of course.

Anyway, if you do like this sort of metal, then you will very much enjoy this.

Go give it a listen.

Raw Angry Young Men

Long before the Grunge explosion, Soundgarden was slowing growing in Seattle, and recorded two CDs before their breakthough Badmotorfinger. The second of these was Louder than Love, a monstrous CD that does everything you'd want for an up and coming band. It showcases their unique style, has some great songs, and most of all captures some of that raw young energy.

Guitarist Kim Thayil still has a firm hold on the band at this point, and his feedback and lo-fi sludgy rhythm are great. Chris Cornell is already a great voice, though he's a long way from where he will eventually reach. The recordings of both are still pretty raw, with Cornell's being a bit overdrenched in reverb and Thayil's guitar lacking some of the big teeth today's recording techniques provide.

But there is no denying these songs. It's hard to think of any song that's quite matched "Big Dumb Sex" in best use of the F-bomb in a song. "Loud Love" and "Hands All Over" are classics. "Power Trip" and "Full on Kevin's Mom" were Soundgarden live show favorites back in the day.

It's interesting that on this second, indie album, the band sounds more focused than they are on some later big-label releases. This is both a strength and a drawback. The sludge gets a litte same-y by the end, but the band never loses its legitimacy. The devotion to the riff and to an underground ethos is unwavering.

Bottom Line: Some Amazing Songs, Indie recording quality, a Record of Youth
