In what was widely predicted to be a short-lived supergroup/side-project, Audioslave has instead gratifyingly yielded a bonafide band. The follow-up to their promising, if not quite artistically congealed '02 debut finds singer/songwriter Chris Cornell contributing a slate of songs that would have done his former Soundgarden proud, while guitarist Tom Morello and his former Rage Against the Machine bandmates cast them in a focused rhythmic groove that suggests that the old school can still yield a timely lesson or two. Cornell's best songs may still lurk in the shadows (the funeral hypno-blues of "Heaven's Dead," the martial metal of antiwar opener "Your Time Has Come," "The Worm" as anthem for self-loathing), yet they're now brightened with such surprisingly sunny fare as "Dandelion," "Doesn't Remind Me"'s charged, existentialist daydream and even a hook-rich, dangerously optimistic back-to-the-future power ballad in "Be Yourself." Morello's work on the title track and elsewhere is a study in taste and less-is-more efficiency, a telling hint of how forcefully these iconic '90s stars have sublimated their egos as their new music has blossomed; who said there are no second acts in American (rock) lives? --Jerry McCulley

A few years ago when it was announced that former Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell would be joining forces with three quarters of Rage Against The Machine (after the departure of singer Zack de la Rocha) expectations were high. Rage Against The Machine and Soundgarden had been two of the best rock bands from the 1990s and the public was eager to hear what kind of collaboration this new supergroup would make. Would this supergroup, Audioslave, live up to the hype? For the most part, the answer was a resounding yes. Audioslave delivered. While some RATM and Soundgarden fans alike were disappointed, Audioslave's self-titled debut was a strong collection of songs that pleased most fans.

Now, almost three years later, Audioslave is back for their second release "Out of Exile" an album that surpasses the debut. Although Audioslave's self-titled debut is a strong album, when it was recorded, Chris Cornel was still new to the rest of the band-guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford, and drummer Brad Wilk. Now, after three years of touring and already having one album under their belt, the band seems to have really jelled. All four members seem to have found a common ground and found what works and sounds best for the group as a whole. Audioslave seems more like a band now than just a supergroup, or an all-star collaboration of 90s alt. rock superstars.

"Out of Exile" is essentially a straight-ahead rock album, with a real classic rock feel. This is hardly surprising when you consider that although Rage Against The Machine incorporated elements of rap and hip-hop into their formula, a lot of their riffs were firmly rooted in classic rock.

Out of Exile

As the final song in Out of Exile marches its way through the speakers, you receive a strong sense of déjà vu, almost as though it was the ending song played as the credits of a movie roll across the screen. It was a movie you have experinced many mixed emotions with, but in the end it was incredibly satisfying.

Thus is the story so far with Audioslave, the Soundgarden + Rage Against the Machine incarnation, and the trend continues with their sophmore effort, Out of Exile. After a steller first effort, which has been overly and unfairly critisized, I came into Out of Exile with expectations sky high. Unlike many fans, I was not around in the hey-day of Soundgarden and Rage Against the Machine and have since been turned on to their music through Audioslave, and not the reverse. Therefore, I have the intriuging ability to examin Audioslave based not on what they have done in their segragated pasts, but only against their potiential in the future.

With that being said, Out of Exile is good album, no, a great album. At first I was a little disapointed. I had dove headlong into their self-titled debut without a single seed of anticipation and loved every minute of it. This album, however, I had been anticipating for months and was expecting, and demanding, an instant classic. What I found, at least a first listen, was an unoriginal, strictly formualic, and somewhat disapointing sequal to what was a fantastic first effort. The songs all seemed to be lacking that certain freshness that the first had so eagerly accepted. The first single, "Be Yourself," was generic, formualic, and about as predictable as any other radio friendly song that dominates the rock charts nowadays.

I like a good heavy rock song as much as the next guy, and Audioslave supplies a lot of those on Out of Exile. For example, something like "Drown Me Slowly" is a powerful piece of music, complete with head-banging guitar riffs and a muscular lead vocal by Chris Cornell. But what's unique and excellent about Audioslave is how they write and perform actual melodies, and they also have the ability to mix in a variety of volumes and tempos. It's not just all full-gale hurricane all of the time. Even on the same mighty tune, "Drown Me Slowly," there is a slower, softer bridge with Cornell almost crooning. And the very next song, "Heavens Dead," is bit more down-tempo (while still possessing its share of hard rhythms and crunching electric guitars). I came to this "Rage Against The Garden" band from the Soundgarden side, and I always liked the 'Garden's ability to mix it up, as shown on a slower but still very strong song like "Black Hole Sun." Audioslave has got the same kind of mojo working with their material. It's a great listen, from a very solid bunch of musicians.

Some people might suggest that Audioslave's new album "Out of Exile" is a bit of a letdown compared to their harder-hitting debut, but I just look at it as a slightly different animal...not necessarily better, or worse...just a bit different...a new direction. True, they didn't seem to include quite as many "heavy" tunes this time around, but that doesn't make it any less worthy of a listen. If their self-titled album was described as being "3 parts Rage Against The Machine and 1 part Chris Cornell", I suppose "Out of Exile" might be better described as "3 Parts Chris Cornell and 1 part R.A.T.M."....but that is most definetly not a _bad_ thing. It's still Audioslave, and they still rock.

As for the Japanese Import album, the cd insert is a bit "misleading", to put it nicely. There are 2 bonus tracks listed: "Super Stupid", and "Like a Stone (Live)". Take note of how they specifically mention that "Like a Stone" is a Live track. What they fail to disclose is that the version of "Super Stupid" is also a live version (in fact, the same old previously released BBC Radio1 Session from the "Like a Stone" cd single).

So if you already own a cd-single with "Super Stupid" on it, there's really no need to spend three times as much money on this Japanese Import Album to get it. Buy the European Import version of "Out of Exile" for ~$10 less if you still want the live bonus track of "Like a Stone" (it's a nice acoustic version).
