Soundgarden was the first grunge band to sign to a major label (A&M Records, in 1988), though the band did not achieve commercial success until they popularized the genre in the early 1990s with Seattle contemporaries Nirvana, Alice in Chains, and Pearl Jam.

Primeval Scum
Welcome back, Soundgarden

When a bunch of nearly middle-aged guys pull out their dusty old guitars after being away from the spotlight so long, I normally wouldn’t have very high expectations. But this is Soundgarden. They’ve never released a dud – and King Animal isn’t one either.

From the moment you hit the play button, the appropriately titled first track “Been Away Too Long” makes it very clear that Soundgarden hasn’t lost a step since its 90s glory days. This track is just the Soundgarden guys rocking out with attitude and having a good time. The production is more polished than what I’m used to from Soundgarden, but the sound of Chris Cornell’s classic howls trading off back and forth with crisp, energetic riffs from Kim Thayil is one that immediately pumps you up.

Soundgarden returns to their trademark odd time-signatures, more technical guitar work and less polished production on “Non-State Actor”, “By Crooked Steps” and “A Thousand Days Before”, three songs driven by some groovy and energetic riffs from Thayil that would sound right at home on Badmotorfinger or Superunknown.

The band outdoes itself on the fifth track, the best one thus far: “Blood on the Valley Floor.” This track is as heavy and barbaric as the title suggests, balancing a dark atmosphere with immense groove. The slow, pounding riffs will bash your skull in with a sledgehammer if cranked up. The first true “wow” moment on the album comes when a layered guitar solo crescendos on top of the groovy riff, with Cornell’s tortured wails in the background.

“Bones of Birds” tones things down a bit with more of a mellow, mysterious vibe. Its soaring, heartfelt chorus is one of the best on the album. I especially loved Soundgarden’s experimentation with atmospherics on this song, making use of keyboards, bird cries and sinister bass runs that pop up out of nowhere.

King Animal continues to gain momentum with Track 7, “Taree”. This song is a classic Soundgarden jam with a memorable chorus and my favorite guitar solo on the entire album. The band does a great job of building an exciting climax at the end of the song, as Cornell shouts “Taree!” while Thayil does some impressive finger acrobatics on his guitar.

Unfortunately, all of the energy that had built up over seven consecutive great songs went out the drain on the dull eighth track. “Attrition” follows the Soundgarden formula (fast guitars and Chris Cornell’s typical vocal fireworks) but nothing is memorable and parts of the song seem very out of sync, especially the drumming. The choo-choo background vocals at the end actually made me cringe.

Luckily, the worst song on the album is quickly followed by some of the best. Cornell and Thayil break out their acoustic guitars for “Black Saturday”, which begins with a tranquil mood that reminds one of a campfire song, but abruptly shifts into abrasiveness when stormy electric guitars and bass suddenly enter.

“Halfway There” is hands down one of the catchiest songs Soundgarden has ever written. I could see it as the radio hit of this album. Soundgarden has always had a knack for churning out ballads that manage to stay on the right side of the line between emotionality and cheesiness. In the vein of “Black Hole Sun”, “Halfway There” is no different.

“Eyelid’s Mouth” has a tribal feel to it, with low-pitched, chanted vocals. The tribal groove and chanted vocals keep on going and going like the Energizer bunny, gradually hypnotizing you into bobbing your head to the beat. The 13th and final track, “Rowing”, is a meaningful song that challenges listeners to never give up on life and to keep “rowing the boat” no matter what. The fuzzy bass sound and fantastic vocals that resonate at the end make an ideal moment to conclude the album with.

Ultimately, King Animal is a solid album, a worthy successor to any of their 90s albums. I was very pleased with how diverse the sounds on this album were. King Animal features modern hard rock, 90s grunge, stoner rock and even acoustic rock. Long-time fans and new listeners alike will find a lot to enjoy here.

That being said, I do have a few minor complaints about this album.

Though he still has one of the most instantly recognizable voices in rock history, it is noticeable to fans of that band’s older work that Chris Cornell’s vocals are more strained and a bit less commanding than on Soundgarden classics like “Rusty Cage.” No one expected Cornell to sound like he did when he was 26, but two other aspects of King Animal come up short: the drumming and the lyrics.

King Animal may not be able to match the song-by-song brilliance of Superunknown, but it’s been 16 years and this album is still thoroughly enjoyable. Chris Cornell, Kim Thayil and company haven’t lost any of their old chemistry or ability to write top-notch rock music. Welcome back, Soundgarden.

"King Animal" is the 6th full-length studio album by US alternative/hard rock act Soundgarden. The album was released through Seven Four Entertainment/Republic Records in November 2012. "King Animal" is a comeback album after a 16 year recording break. The band´s last studio album was "Down On The Upside" from 1996.

The music on "King Animal" pretty much take up where "Down On The Upside (1996)" ended. In other words this is the unmistakable sound of Soundgarden. Chris Cornell has always been an outstanding vocalist with a distinct and instantly recognisable vocal style and listening to the opening track "Been Away Too Long", it soon becomes apparent that nothing has changed in that department. Powerful and raw vocal delivery but the years haven´t gone by completely unnoticed and Chris Cornell is probably a more well balanced singer today than he was before the band split up. I could have wished for a bit more bite and attitude in his delivery though. Maybe the now more mature singer lost a bit of the youthful energy along the way? The rythm section is as strong and tight as ever and Kim Thayil´s colourful guitar playing adds some atmospheric textures to the tracks.

The songwriting is decent but like the case was on "Down On The Upside (1996)" there are too many unremarkable tracks on the album. The songwriting certainly isn´t as inspired as the songwriting on the band´s best work, but less will do and "King Animal" is still a pretty entertaining, very well produced and well played comeback album by Soundgarden. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is fair.

SOUNDGARDEN Live On I-5

"Live on I-5" is the first live album by US alternative rock/metal act Soundgarden. The album was released through A&M Records in March 2011. The album was recorded at various shows during their late 1996 US West Coast tour supporting the "Down on the Upside (1996)" album. It was originally planned for release after the tour, but as Soundgarden disbanded, the live recordings were shelved. The decision to release the recordings now, is probably due to the band´s reunion in January 2010 and the subsequent select live shows in 2010 and 2011, which sparked interest in fans to hear new material from the band.

...even though the band were, at the time, touring in support of "Down on the Upside (1996)", that album is only represented with 4 tracks out of a tracklist of 17 tracks. The band´s arguably most popular albums, "Badmotorfinger (1991)" and "Superunknown (1994)", are each represented with 5 tracks. The remaining 3 tracks are "Nothing to Say" from Soundgarden´s 1987 debut EP "Screaming Life", the Beatles cover "Helter Skelter" and the Stooges cover "Search and Destroy". That means, that there are not a single track from "Ultramega OK (1988)" or "Louder Than Love (1989)" present on "Live on I-5".

The performance isn´t the most inspired thing I´ve ever heard. Especially lead vocalist Chris Cornell sounds tired and used. His voice often cracks and his pronounciation and delivery of the songlines are sloppy. The rest of the band don´t deliver the most exciting performance either, but it´s the vocals that drag my rating down the most. The sound quality is thankfully professional and well sounding. All in all this isn´t a very interesting release despite the good sound quality. Maybe the fact that the band were on the verge of disbanding at the time when the tracks were recorded has something to do with it, but I expect much more from such a high prolific act as Soundgarden. A 2.5 - 3 star (55%) rating is warranted.

SOUNDGARDEN Ultramega OK

Album · 1988 · Alternative Metal

Ultramega OK is the debut full-length studio album by US, Seattle based alternative hard rock/ metal act Soundgarden. The album was released in November 1988 by SST. I´ve been a Soundgarden fan for years, but somehow I´ve never had the opportunity to purchase or listen to Ultramega OK before now.

The music on the album is alternative hard rock. There´s a loose/ sloopy atmosphere on the album that´s without a doubt intentional. The band are also very interested in making noise. The unforgettable melodic material and recognisable hooks of later albums are not really present here. The production is kind of garage recording sounding, and while productions like that can be great, I can´t say the sound enhances my listening experience when it comes to the music on this album. Lead vocalist Chris Cornell are more restrained and not as confident as on later albums. It´s still obvious that the guy had a great vocal talent already this early in his career though.

...so this is the kind of album I´m glad to have heard because it´s an important early alternative rock/ metal album, but my personal enjoyment is limited. There´s a huge difference between the music on Ultramega OK and the music on Louder Than Love (1989) and it´s actually quite interesting how much the band developed in just one year. a 2.5 star rating is warranted.

SOUNDGARDEN Superunknown

Superunknown, while overall not Soundgarden's heaviest work, was easily the best album that the Seattle legends put out. With an eclectic mix of alternative metal and alternative rock with some experimental tracks (all with progressive elements), this is the most diverse album in the band's catalogue.

What made Superunkown, and Soundgarden in general, stand out among the other Seattle grunge bands was their obvious playing ability and musical talent. Chris Cornell's extremely large vocal range is utilized all though the album, most notably on the songs "Limo Wreck" and "The Day I Tried To Live." Cornell's lyrics deal with themes ranging from depression to drug abuse, typical of grunge bands at the Kim Thayil's heavy riffing provides the heaviest segments of the album on songs such as "Spoonman" and "4th of July." Thayil also uses unique effects and powerful melodies throughout the album, adding to Cornell's lyrics about the mysterious and unknown. He also contributes several unique and notable solos on the songs "Black Hole Sun", "Spoonman", and "Like Suicide". Matt Cameron's drumming, although not in the caliber of songs like "Jesus Christ Pose" from Badmotorfinger, is still impressive, keeping a driving beat while including technical fills. Ben Shepard's bass lines are often a mix of both the guitars and drums, complementing on or both of the instruments.

Superunknown is chock full of amazing songs and includes many classics, with little or no filler. While the songs "Head Down" and "Half" may appear to be odd filler songs that did not need to be on the album, they provide a feel for what limits the band was willing to experiment to at the time. Soundgarden shows their progressive tendencies all throughout the album, with many songs in alternate time signatures and tunings, with unconventional song structures. Superunknown is a classic mix of some of the best songs that Soundgarden ever recorded, and is a perfect candidate for the greatest grunge album ever.

Recommended Songs: My Wave, Fell On Black Days, Superunknown, Black Hole Sun, Spoonman, Limo Wreck, Like Suicide,
