Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Audioslave's worldwide sales total 7 million albums. Revelations, the band's third album, produced by Brendan O'Brien, represents their strongest effort to date. The first single ''Original Fire'' is making a sonic statement at radio and marks a new, more soulful direction for the band. Having toured over the past 18 months, the band very quickly worked up 20 songs on the road and was very eager to capture that live sound. Then enlisted Brendan O'Brien, who helped deliver the most potent effort and some of the best vocals from Chris Cornell ever.

Amazon.com

The novelty of Audioslave has had time to wear off. The grouping of ex-Rage Against the Machine members and ex-Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell is no longer new; and time has long since come for the band to live or die based solely on the merits of its music, not on the reputation of its members. The good news is that, at least for now, the group is in a position to do exactly that. On Revelations, the band channels and updates the unapologetic boogie of Ian Gillan-era Deep Purple on tunes such as "One and the Same," "Shape of Things to Come," and "Wide Awake" with ease, inspiring awe and genuine surprise. Guitarist Tom Morello has rarely sounded as fresh as he does on the stomp-and-stammer "Original Fire" and the otherwise disposable grunge retread "Somedays." Not every track here can be as good as the opening title cut and a few--the should-be moving ballad "Until We Fall," the closing "Moth"--fall painfully short. But there is enough strength here to suggest that Audioslave's ability to deliver jaw-dropping albums remains intact and its ability to live up to the hype is lagging just a step or two behind. --Jedd Beaudoin

Customer Reviews

If your not a Audioslave fan already, I doubt this album will win you over.
ChuckMoses
REVELATIONS has a very different feel to it, the audioslave sound is still there but with a lot of funk and soul power.
Mezzotint
I have something good to say about every song - there's almost no filler on this album.

At first listen, Revelations might sound a bit weird, and a bit funky. I know it did to me. Alot of other people I've talked with felt the same way. But trust me, the more you listen to Revelations the more you will like it. It is tremendously addicting. I havn't been addicted to a album like this for quite awhile. Suffice to say, Revelations is a remarkable album in all aspects. Audioslave continue to refine their sound and create wonderful music. This time around they have incorporated alot of funk, & rythym and blues into the album. Bottom line to me, if you liked the first two slave albums, there is no reason in the world that you shouldn't like this one.

A interesting note about this album is how it was recorded. The band went directly from touring to the studio to record it. There was no lull or lapse of time inbetween like there was inbetween the first two albums. The band wanted to establish a continual cycle of touring, recording, touring. They even recorded some somes out on the road and played them. I know Wide Awake, and Sound of a Gun were played at some of the later shows. They toured for quite awhile and then officialy went into the studio to record the whole album. I think this is a really good idea, as they had alot of fresh and exciting ideas that they wanted to experiment with. The quality of "Revelations" speaks volumes as to how effective this process was for Audioslave.

The thing I noticed with this album is that the chemistry between the band just keeps getting better and better. Remember, Brad, Tom, and Tim have been playing together for over 14 years. The first RATM album came out back in 1992. With Audioslave, and Chris, they are really gelling as a band, & they have even mentioned that in different interviews.

After Audioslaves debut the thought to me was "How do you top that"? Then the "Sophomore Jinx" bit hard on "Out of Exile" which fell way short of expectations for me. Allot of the "Rage" was lost and it didn't have a clear direction, kind of boring. Now if you said the third album "Revelations" still didn't get back to it's "Raging Roots" but was as good as the debut. Well I'd say your nuts!! Well I guess I'm nuts. The direction has changed again but I think Audioslave has come into a style all their own now. The music here is fresh and has a funky vibe mixed with some good grooves. As always some great guitar work. It starts w/ a great rocker the self-titled track. The up and down transitions of track 3. Sound of a Gun. Then the radio friendly track 4. Until We Fall. The upbeat track 5. Original Fire. The funky vibe really starts kicking in with a killer tune, 7. Somedays! That leads into another great rocker, very Soundgarden-ish 8. Shape of Things to Come. Track 9. Jewel of The Summertime, has a funky/bluesy vibe with an absolute killer grove. Then track 12. Moth blows you away. It starts slow then hits you hard and adds many layers to it. That's one thing I can say about this release, it has many layers to it. It grabs you and keeps you interested from beginning to end! Great production songwriting and musicianship all the way around. Great job guys!

The first two albums...had their moments. Still, when I go back and listen to the first one, it is harsh. There was CC on the one hand, and I love his voice, and RATM on the other, pressed together like a sandwich in which you had to like the two parts to like the whole, but this one is smooth. Revelations is powerful, and with four exceptional songs, I consider it a classic. Nothing sounds forced on this album. The first two tracks are amazing, and then again Somedays and Shape of Things both pick up the best of RATM's jams and CC's voice. Mature, wonderful, classic.

This is another solid album from Audioslave. After a few spins I think this is actually better than their previous album 'Out Of Exile', which is Kind of ironic seeing as that album took 3 years and this album only took 1...

This album is definitely the funkiest album they have done, some real grooves going on, especially in 'Jewel Of the Summertime' and 'Broken City'. Some people have complained this album isn't heavy enough, and although their debut is heavier, this album is by no means a soft album. It's a surprising complaint to make because this album is heavier than 'Out of Exile' just not as fast. Some monster riffs can be found, most notably in 'Sound of A Gun' and 'Moth'...

...Aah yes; 'Moth', and what a track that is! 'Moth' is the standout track on this album, it is the 'Bring Em Back Alive' of their debut, the '#1 Zero' of 'Out Of Exile', it is something special. It has more emotional delivery in the vocals, epic guitars and a great structure. Interestingly enough it doesn't have a Morello solo, but I didn't even notice until the 5th or 6th time I listened to that track. Over favourites of mine are 'Jewel Of The Summertime' which is a really funky trip. When I first read the title I thought it would be another 'Dandelion', but it was a very nice surprise. I also love 'One And The Same' which combines Audioslave's heavy riffs and funkier sound to great effect. I think perhaps the title track would have made a better choice as first single, not that 'Original Fire' is a bad choice.

However this album also contains possibly the worst Audioslave song they have ever put out; 'Somedays'. An embarrassing song which gets old before you've even got to the end of it once. It sounds like something a big hair metal band of the 80's would do, oh well...

Ahh! I thought I heard Chris Cornell's voice! Had no idea when their next album was coming out until I saw Miami Vice. Found myself getting anxious for the movie to end so I could get home and look up the album info. I agree, what I heard sounds awesome.

Listened to it already and this is my review.
What do you mean this is too mellow for Audioslave? It's Cornell, Morello, Commerford, and Wilk. Last I checked, that WAS Audioslave. This isn't Soundgarden and it isn't Rage Against the Machine. Just because it isn't heavy doesn't mean it's not good, and it definitely doesn't mean it's not... Read More

This is going to rock.
I absolutely love Original Fire. My only complaint is the very short solo during the bridge. I cannot wait to hear the other tracks.

Do Chris Cornell's lyrics make sense?
Dude Zach is one of the worst singers. He doesn't sing, he screams. Chris Cornell is better then him any day. And personally I enjoy his lyrics compared to Rage's which only delt with how they view the world and it got really old. Audioslave is much better imo
