The result is a very diverse album, highlighting Cornell's immediately identifiable vocals and relatively simpler songwriting. That said, he had the chance to incorporate a multitude of other instruments, including tambourine, theremin, and timpani. Besides the trademark blues rock-ridden songs that helped Cornell make a name for himself, he also digs deep into psychedelia, best heard on "Preaching the End of the World", a song that finds Cornell opting for thick, Radiohead-like arrangements, lofty acoustics, and a strange mix of keyboard and guitar effects. Not too different is "Disappearing One", guesting Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron with its moving vocal melodies, shimmering keyboards and even a vague clarinet addition.
Surely, Soundgarden fans expecting a very heavy record with meaty guitars and lots of aggressive vocals will be sorely disappointed. But they need to realize Euphoria Morning was meant to be different way before Cornell started working on it. Solo projects serve the purpose of letting the artists express themselves in ways they are unable to in their own bands. And considering this, Euphoria Morning is a huge success.Read more ›
"Can't Change Me" kicks off the album as something of a bridge between Soundgarden and the rest of the solo material. It starts with something of a "Soundgarden at half speed" tack until something that you're quite sure is a guitar solo ends in a manner that has you looking back and asking yourself if it wasn't a harmonica solo instead. It's at this point you realize that, for better or worse, synthesizers are going to play a role in this album. And while that thought might have Soundgarden fans heading for the hills and Audioslave fans wanting to light something on fire, the keyboards on this album are actually better more than often they're worse. While some of the sounds on the second track "Flutter Girl" might sound just a bit over-the-top artificial, the song manages to capture something of a late-era Beatles vibe, along with a heavy Asian influence. It shouldn't come as a surprise, as Cornell seemingly couldn't cram enough of either of those two particular styles into Soundgarden's masterpiece Superunknown.Read more ›
I have been a Soundgarden fan since Badmotorfinger, but as a singer I've always been more into the classic (Stones, Doors) feel. There were very few bands in the 90's that I really got into. So the natural progression from one of my favorite bands is to hear Chris Cornell's solo effort. I believe another review said that there was not one bad song on this album, and they were right. While a couple are not as good as the overall album, they're still good.
Standout songs for me are Moonchild (Unbelievable song, especially the break in the middle), Flutter Girl ("I give nothing for free"), Follow My Way (very unique sound, but actually works with Cornell's amazing voice), Sweet Euphoria (brings tears to your eyes, gospel like), and Pillow of Your Bones (a Soundgarden type vibe, but man, one of the best songs on the album. Dig the guitar here.) Honorable mention goes to Steel Rain which has been growing on me.
Jesus, I almost went through every song on the album. Get this album, it really is fantastic.
Just a couple of notes. On the Audioslave album, there are a couple of songs like Getaway Car and The Last Remaining Light which have a similar vibe to some songs on this album.
Also, drummer Matt Cameron from Soundgarden makes an appearance on "Disappearing One."
