It doesn't get any better than this,
By A Customer
This review is from: Superunknown (Audio CD)
There are so many great tracks on this album, I couldn't even mention them all. One of the truly front to back albums ever made, Superunknown may only be rivaled in strength by Pearl Jam's Ten. Of course, the radio songs like Black Hole Sun, My Wave, and Spoonman, are great, but Soundgarden's real greatness is shown in some of its lesser known tracks. Shepard's distorted lyrics in Half are simply ominous, while Cornell provides the listener with dreadful pleasure in Limo Wreck, Fell on Black Days and The Day I tried to Live. Like Suicide, the final track, is perhaps the most disturbing song of all, and makes one wonder what goes through Chris Cornell's mind when he's all alone. But if there's one song to play over and again, its the self-flagellating Fresh Tendrils, which moves with a taut rage that only Soundgarden could deliver. If you haven't bought this album, you're missing out on a rare and powerful musical experience that comes around more seldom than does Halley's Comet.
