Insert intro of "By Crooked Steps" here,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: King Animal (Audio CD)
The last song on Down on the Upside was titled "Boot Camp". One of the most beautiful Soundgarden songs and viewed by SG nuts like myself as the perfect ending. Needless to say, I always hoped they'd get back together or at least sell a damn t-shirt I can wear to prove my age. When `Live to Rise' came out, I got online to find a good oven to stick my head into, but I refrained. To have Soundgarden grouped with the horrendous music on the Avengers soundtrack was horrifying. I was freaking out about this new album. Will life as I know it end?
Will Cornell ask Timbaland for help in "dropping" beats? Will Kim Thayil be arrested by Homeland Security? Will Ben Shepard calm down? Will Matt Cameron implode from being too awesome?
The answer is a resounding no! And it shows! King Animal is simply awesome. My first impression was disdain, at the `you know my name' -esque titled `Been away too long'. Yeah, it starts off okay, slightly meh, and then 2 minutes in, you know Soundgarden is still Soundgarden. The euphoria for me peaked about two minutes in, and lasted all the way through the album. Glad you're back, guys! Thanks!!!!

Nice review. I also noticed your review for Down on the Upside and thought the Led Zeppelin comparison was spot on. Excellent taste.

I see based on your lack of intelligence, your opinion is neither deemed worthy or credible. You either better clean the crud out of your ears or just refrain from listening to music altogether because you simply do not get it. Now run along troll bait and get an education. It could do you wonders. ;)
