About the Artist

Chris Cornell is a rock icon who thrives on contradictions. An innovator who resists genre labels, he was nonetheless the chief architect of the 90s grunge movement. Frequently ranked as one of the best voices in music history, he has successfully maintained his own unique identity over more than two decades as a multi-Grammy award winning musician and universally acclaimed singer, songwriter and lyricist.

Seattle trailblazers Soundgarden were a law to themselves, edgy, dark and deeply individual. Their savage soundscapes, coupled with Cornell's incisive lyrics and predatory roar, seduced audiences hungry for musical depth and complexity while leading trends in street fashion and iconic design. In 1989, they became the first Seattle band to sign to a major label. Their sound continued to change and evolve over the course of five pioneering albums.

Celebrated side project Temple of the Dog had already shown Cornell's more soulful side and introduced future Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder to the world. Later, Cornell shocked the business once again with richly melodic, critically acclaimed solo album "Euphoria Morning", swiftly recognized for its alienation and despair. And as the millennium turned, he joined with three other musical pioneers from rap-rock's Rage Against The Machine to create Audioslave - a multi-platinum supergroup which lived to deny its detractors, producing three top-selling albums, touring the world and becoming the first American band to bring rock to Castro's Cuba.

Since then, Cornell has redefined his sound and vision to encompass new music, new collaborations and new activities. Having contributed solo songs to movie soundtracks from "Great Expectations" to "Mission Impossible II", he became the first American male singer to write the theme song for the James Bond franchise in its most successful film to date, "Casino Royale." His bold and bluesy reinvention of Michael Jackson dance classic "Billie Jean" courted controversy and attracted imitators. And his triumphant 2007 world tour brought together songs from every stage of his career, reinterpreting them for new audiences and blending their original fire with the shock of the new.

Outside music, Cornell fronted fashion designer John Varvatos's Spring 2006 collection and settled in Paris with his family, where he has helped revive a historic restaurant, the stylish Black Calavados.

Only the most confident would claim to predict exactly what comes next for Chris Cornell. Always eclectic, always experimental, his new collaboration with super-producer Timbaland - who calls their album "the best work I've done in my career" - will take him into fresh territory, establishing a new sound and marking the creation of a masterpiece that breaks all musical boundaries. Only one thing's for sure - Chris Cornell will continue to break rules, make history and challenge everyone's expectations.

1.0 out of 5 stars a really bad evolution... March 12, 2009
Format:MP3 Music
Everyone likes to go on about Cornell's artistic prowess, yet it's not just song and lyric writing that has always made CC's music superb: His voice could make or break many a song, and Cornell was a master at making his voice an integral part of his music. The songs on Scream are not in themselves horrible; without the Timbaland influence, many of the songs could be revamped into decent rock tunes. However, the entire album emphasizes Timbaland's role (the title should read "Timbaland's Scream, featuring Chris Cornell"), and Chris - Chris's voice - now seems like an afterthought to the music. When the greatest SINGER in rock history allows his voice to play 2nd (3rd, 4th?) fiddle to the music, well, it's MUCH WORSE than disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than I thought it might be March 10, 2009
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard Cornell would work with Timbaland, I braced for the worst, especially after hearing the awful work he did with Duran Duran last year. Usually, I find Timbaland's work too sterile (the beats, while danceable, too perfect to really groove). And that's somewhat the case here. I really like a lot of the old style synth sounds that are used, and the textures and deep bass are great, but the whole thing sounds a bit artificial. It's saved somewhat by Cornell's voice. Timbaland's usual pop or rap pairings mostly can't sing like this, so Cornell can take the songs up a notch. And as with Cornell's last solo album, the vocals are sounding much better than in the Audioslave era. He constructs some pretty memorable melodies. The thing that's missing vs. his previous solo work, however, are all the open guitar tunings and harmonic color provided from them. These songs give up so much to the rhythm of the loops that there isn't much room for the more interesting chord changes that characterize Cornell's best stuff. Some people will reflexively give it 1-star, but it's far better than that. Nevetheless, it's not as interesting as his first two solo albums, and so we hope its a transition on toward something more expansive. I admire his guts to try a project like this, but I might have chosen a different (more musically diverse) producer than is Timbaland. To go in this type of direction, someone like Danger Mouse might have been a hipper choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huge Departure? Yes. Addictive? Oh Yeah. May 24, 2009
By rick33
Format:Audio CD
As a Chris Cornell fan from about 1989 it is very telling that I've very rarely been disappointed by this artist.

I was heartbroken when Soundgarden broke up and a bit wary of Audioslave... then I fell under the Cornell/Morello spell. Then there are his three solo albums. All have their positives and negatives. "Carry On" is Cornell's one album I really had to work a bit get into, but eventually did.

Then came "Scream". I have to admit, upon the first listen I was thinking, "What the hell IS this? He's gone down some funky, poppy, R&B road!" But man... once I got hooked by one song (Enemy) it wasn't long before I was hooked on all the rest. Plus, with the way the songs are designed to flow into eachother, I find it nearly impossible to just listen to one song at time.

This album, though a huge departure, is by far Cornell's most energetic, addictive and just plain enjoyable solo album to date. He is a true artist who obviously has no interest in rehashing what he's done before and brave enough take a risk on new genre... and, as one would only expect from him, DOMINATE it.

If you are purely a genre fan, no matter the performer, and you only tolerate the rock genre, then this album is probably not for you. But if you are a fan of an artist and trust a gifted one to create something special, then I highly recommend this album.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Chris Cornell project ever! (from a big fan) July 13, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Chris Cornell, I've been a fan of Soundgarden since the beginning, and I really liked Chris's first solo album. This 3rd solo album was a annoying sounding hip-hop record. Forget about rock and everything you thought you knew about Chris's style, it's gone straight out the window. Timbaland messed up on this one too, bug time! High-pitched, under-processed, cheesy, annoying hip-hop beats under Chris's over-processed, pitch-corrected, chorus-effected vocals.

I hope he doesn't perform these songs in concert.

A must not buy, unless you like that kind of 2009 over-limited hip-pop.

First, I'm not one of those people who hate this cd, just because its a colloboration with Timbaland. I actually listened to the entire thing and can honestly say its terrible. The only song on here that is passable is "watch out" and thats being generous. Everything else is abysmally bad. The only reason that anyone could even pretend this is a five star album, is sheer blind devotion to Chris Cornell.
If Chris Cornell from the 90s could take a time machine to 2010, he would be really upset at what a sellout he became. The 90s Seattle scene was about music for the sake of music, now Cornell is doing interviews on the red carpet, wondering how many grammies he's going to win. Well at least Kim, Ben, and Matt are still making awesome music without worrying about awards.
Defintely going to cell this, or if no one will buy it, give it away.

1.0 out of 5 stars Insulted - greed is not good and here's the proof! March 10, 2009
By Michael
Format:Audio CD
From Soundgarden to Temple Of The Dog to Audioslave to computer generated pop. Why? There better be a good reason for this album because I am insulted by the transition that Chris Cornell has made here. If he can convince me that this is supposed to be an artistic statement and a natural progession from what he achieved in the past then I will buy every album Timbaland has ever produced. I wonder if he can play this to members of Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Audioslave, and any fan of the music he has created over the years with a straight face? It's totally embarassing. Can this album honestly sit in his catalogue next to albums like Euphoria Morning and Superunknown? What about making a playlist with his song "Seasons" alongside this stuff. This better be a once off cause he is losing his musical credibilty which I once thought was going to be an enduring legacy.

Good songs are good songs but bad production is bad production. Chris Cornell writes great songs but he needs to please the fans sometimes and use the type of production style that brought life to his songs on albums like Superunknown, Down On The Upside, and Euphoria Morning. Furthermore alot of the lyrics on Scream are very cringe-worthy and lack the abstract thought and metaphors of his earlier work.

If you can make it to the end of this album there's a "hidden track" that is absolutely awesome. It has a dark and bluesy feel with Cornell's powerful and raspy vocals backed up with some nice guitar playing. We can only hope this is a teaser of what might happen on the next album.

Cornell
I quite liked "Carry On", felt it was much more accessible and entertaining than "Euphoria Morning" even if it was lesser than his efforts with a full Band.

I have only heard a teaser for this new song of his along with that new Life on Mars promo and it sounds very weird,... Read More

Bring back Soundgarden!
I agree! I realize it's Cornell's life and his decision to do whatever he wants but this is ridiculous. He's a legend for Soundgarden and Audioslave and his last solo wasn't bad but this is just stupid. I'd love to hear one more Soundgarden album...
