5.0 out of 5 stars Love this song! December 19, 2012

I first heard it when it was released years ago, and I lost my CD after a move. Found this song accidentally on Amazon and bought it right away.

Okay, the fact that I dug this song out of the Amazon avalanche of available tunes, says it was a five at the outset. I first heard it years ago on local FM, after hearing Black Hole Sun many times (too sludgy for my tastes--and now the erstwhile "grunge"
afficianados will be shooting arrows wrapped in burning flannel soaked in Starbucks at my house--that opinion permanently
reversed by hearing Burden In My Hand for the first time). Long sentence. I apologize. How do I describer this?
I'm told, or heard, that the audience, on hearing Beethoven's Fifth for the first time was stunned to silence--a what
the h--- was that? moment. Beethoven's fifth this tune ain't, but after a lot of years, it still surprises, and surprise invokes memory and what is memorable is what makes music last. Don't know about the future of this tune, but it popped back into my head the other day, so I bought it. Up close, no airwaves between us, it still moves. Cornell's (sic?) voice, working like an engine way over its red line sits on top of some really fine musicianship. Which is, first, what brings any band or singer into my
range of attention, the skill of the people involved at the craft they've chosen. And it ain't easy, folks. Good job, from a geezer
who grew up with the way overvalued music of the sixties.
