Editorial Reviews

Soundgarden's first two EPs combined together on one CD, originally released in 1990. Fronted by Chris Cornell, Soundgarden's blend of Classic Rock, Metal and Grunge helped jumpstart a Rock revolution in the early '90s. Alongside Nirvana and Pearl Jam, Soundgarden remain one of the finest bands to emerge from and transcend the influential Grunge scene. 10 tracks including 'Hunted Down', 'Nothing to Say' and 'Swallow My Pride'. Warner.

Format: Audio CD least in the case for Soundgarden, who made their music debut with "Screaming Life/FOPP" in 1987. Gosh, how long ago does that time seem? Long before Grunge-Music was established as the popular alternative-rock stuff that many different types of people love and could relate to. At the time, I'm sure Soundgarden (like most other artists starting out on their career path) had no idea where this little ditty would lead. As a longtime fan of the band, I can say with complete confidence that I'm glad this disc has landed in my hands! I enjoy every track enormously, but probably "Nothing To Say" and "Hunted Down" would classify as a tie between the title of 'Favorite Album Track.'

On the surface, one could look at this album as an extended demo. The band clearly had a flair from the outset for producing great guitar/bass riffs and solos, plus phenomenally moving vocals. What I heard here not only shows the greatness that would follow in the years and albums ahead, but also stands there as a fine monument to a great piece of work on its own. All the tracks flow together nicely, and there is alot of time on each track for just instrumental jamming (which allows the listener to drift off into energized meditation). I like the fact that the lyrical content was not altogether deep, because truly the SOUND of Soundgarden is what makes them who they are. The band creates an almost water-color-painting feel of harmony with each tune they play. One may not understand the full lyrical meaning behind the action, but they will love the action itself as fun and uplifting. This album makes you want to run around and dance (perfect to play when exercising).

No matter what anyone says, this is an absolutely awesome record, especially considering it's the first record Soundgarden put out. Screaming Life is clearly the highlight of the two EPs, so I'll talk about that first.
A lot of people insult the scratchy, almost "ghetto" sound of the songs on this record, but if you bought it on vinyl, you'd know that that's just a result of the cd not being digitally remastered. You CAN'T hold that against the band. What's left beneath that is some absolutely gorgeous music. Nothing to Say, Hunted Down, and Entering are some of the best Soundgarden songs ever written, and in my opinion, some of the best rock songs ever written. In those songs there is undeniable skill from all sides--vocals, drums, bass, and guitar. What more could you ask for?
Now the Fopp EP...Soundgarden had this tendency to make fun of things via imitation, but then at the end it looked like they were serious (take "Big Dumb Sex" on Louder than Love for example). Fopp is the same's a joke. Swallow My Pride, on the other hand, is a classic grunge song, written by Green River. Half of the bands that matter have covered it, so it's only proper that Soundgarden did too.
In all fairness, I can see why some "Soungarden fans" don't like this. But if you fall in that category, take a step back and acknowledge that you're just a casual Soungarden listener, because any real fan knows that this record is genuine, unfiltered Soundgarden. Maybe you should go give Audioslave a shot instead.

The first half of this CD (Screaming Life EP) is ideal early Soundgarden--a little rough around the edges, but it has some good metal tracks ("Hand of God" has some of the best guitar solos) and trademark Chris Cornell wailing, like in "Entering," "Tears to Forget," and "Nothing to Say," though the middle song sounds more like AC/DC. However, the remaining half of this CD (Fopp EP) is pretty short and skippable, though "Fopp" is an unexpectedly fun song, both versions. Even though "Screaming Life/Fopp" is one of my least listened to Soundgarden CDs, it's still worth checking out if you're a diehard Soundgarden fan.

I bought this CD around 1996 in a small used cd store in Alaska. I thought it was great and had never seen it around. I am a big soundgarden fan and of course growing up in my late teens during the grunge era, this was my kind of music.

I went to see Chris Cornell perform at a small club in PA called the Grape Street Pub. It was an invitation only gig with about 50 people only. Folding chairs only, five feet from the stage, room about 25 ft deep.... The show was great getting to listen to Chris play the songs acoustically right in front of me!

Afterward there was an autograph session. I brought my cd (screaming life/fopp) with me in hope he would sign it. When I got to the table where he was signing I said hello and handed him this cd. His jaw dropped and he asked where did I get this. I told himn the story and he took the paperwork out of the cd to read it through thoroughly. He said this was a very important cd to him and he couldn't believe he was seeing it again. He said he really couldn't believe how young he was when he made this. Then he signed the front cover with a silver paint pen and a picture to complete the deal!!

I thought that was really cool to bring him something like that!!!

So enjoy this cd everyone, I know Chris does!!
