Product Description

Since Soundgarden's lamented breakup in 1997, grunge stud Chris Cornell has been working with his longtime friends and musical peers in the band Eleven--keyboardist Natasha Shneider and guitarist Alain Johannes. These stellar musicians make Cornell's latest album crisper, more musical, and less rocky than what one came to expect from Soundgarden. The soaring "Follow My Way" is epic in scope, and, in fact, Euphoria Morning is aptly titled; the album is a cohesive mood-invoking musical meditation, especially tracks such as "When I'm Down," which has a near-gospel feel thanks to backing vocals and a spare, uplifting vibe. Fans of Cornell's mellower work with the supergroup Temple of the Dog will enjoy this ardent and mellifluous 12-song collection from one of rock's most recognizable voices. --Katherine Turman

Don't dismiss this as a typical front-man-gone-solo attempt to cash in on his former band's residual fame. Listening closely to this album confirmed my opinion that Cornell's musicianship was the cornerstone of the band's success. In 'Euphoria Morning', Cornell has clearly grown and evolved as a musician, much like the post-Beatles' Lennon, forsaking 'radio playability' for honesty and grace. The musicians with whom he recorded (especially Alain Johannes) are rock solid and lay an impressively understated foundation upon which his superlative vocal skills are showcased. While several of the songs ('Pillow of Your Bones', 'Mission') clearly have their roots in Soundgarden's burial plot, the majority owe their existence and are a tribute to Jeff Buckley, Cornell's late contemporary and close friend. Cornell's soaring falsetto and anguished wailing aptly evokes Buckley's 'Grace'. The songs on the album are not immediately catchy and will appeal to neither corporate pop radio nor hardened Soundgarden fans, but I see this as a positive trait- it sends a clear message that Cornell has neither 'sold out' nor 'bought in'. Final Evaluation: superb musicianship, excellent songwriting, very good album

Following the demise of Soundgarden in 1997, everyone was curious what Chris Cornell would do next. Would he immerse himself in another band where he could display his blood-curdling screams or would he surprise everyone with something totally different? He chose the latter. With Natasha Shneider on keys and Alain Johannes on guitars, Cornell found the opportunity to break away from his heavily Zeppelin and Sabbath-rooted musical background, and he also asked some other musicians to make an appearance on the record.

The result is a very diverse album, highlighting Cornell's immediately identifiable vocals and relatively simpler songwriting. That said, he had the chance to incorporate a multitude of other instruments, including tambourine, theremin, and timpani. Besides the trademark blues rock-ridden songs that helped Cornell make a name for himself, he also digs deep into psychedelia, best heard on "Preaching the End of the World", a song that finds Cornell opting for thick, Radiohead-like arrangements, lofty acoustics, and a strange mix of keyboard and guitar effects. Not too different is "Disappearing One", guesting Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron with its moving vocal melodies, shimmering keyboards and even a vague clarinet addition.

Surely, Soundgarden fans expecting a very heavy record with meaty guitars and lots of aggressive vocals will be sorely disappointed. But they need to realize Euphoria Morning was meant to be different way before Cornell started working on it. Solo projects serve the purpose of letting the artists express themselves in ways they are unable to in their own bands. And considering this, Euphoria Morning is a huge success.

After a day and a half of not being able to listen to anything but this album, I can tell you that it's definitely a keeper. I've always felt that Chris Cornell had the purest voice in the entire alternative rock genre, and part of what's made both of his bands stand out is his ability to take that pure voice and lay it over top of some rather, uh, loud material and yet still have it consistently shine through all the noise. If you've ever wondered what his voice would sound like with nothing but ambient sounds behind him, Euphoria Morning answers that question in a manner both pleasant and surprising.

"Can't Change Me" kicks off the album as something of a bridge between Soundgarden and the rest of the solo material. It starts with something of a "Soundgarden at half speed" tack until something that you're quite sure is a guitar solo ends in a manner that has you looking back and asking yourself if it wasn't a harmonica solo instead. It's at this point you realize that, for better or worse, synthesizers are going to play a role in this album. And while that thought might have Soundgarden fans heading for the hills and Audioslave fans wanting to light something on fire, the keyboards on this album are actually better more than often they're worse. While some of the sounds on the second track "Flutter Girl" might sound just a bit over-the-top artificial, the song manages to capture something of a late-era Beatles vibe, along with a heavy Asian influence. It shouldn't come as a surprise, as Cornell seemingly couldn't cram enough of either of those two particular styles into Soundgarden's masterpiece Superunknown.

This is one of the best solo albums I have ever heard from any artist, maybe even the finest.
I have been a Soundgarden fan since Badmotorfinger, but as a singer I've always been more into the classic (Stones, Doors) feel. There were very few bands in the 90's that I really got into. So the natural progression from one of my favorite bands is to hear Chris Cornell's solo effort. I believe another review said that there was not one bad song on this album, and they were right. While a couple are not as good as the overall album, they're still good.
Standout songs for me are Moonchild (Unbelievable song, especially the break in the middle), Flutter Girl ("I give nothing for free"), Follow My Way (very unique sound, but actually works with Cornell's amazing voice), Sweet Euphoria (brings tears to your eyes, gospel like), and Pillow of Your Bones (a Soundgarden type vibe, but man, one of the best songs on the album. Dig the guitar here.) Honorable mention goes to Steel Rain which has been growing on me.
Jesus, I almost went through every song on the album. Get this album, it really is fantastic.
Just a couple of notes. On the Audioslave album, there are a couple of songs like Getaway Car and The Last Remaining Light which have a similar vibe to some songs on this album.
Also, drummer Matt Cameron from Soundgarden makes an appearance on "Disappearing One."
