"Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart" starts with delicate mandolin gradually adding fuzzy guitars and percussion. "Try to take a picture of the sun, and it won't help you to see the light" he sings. "Before We Disappear" is an intimate ballad with groovy bass, while "Murderer Of Blue Skies" is a bleak song on heartbreak with a lovely guitar solo; "I can't wait to never be with you again" he sings in a forlorn voice.
The title track starts off a tender piano ballad with more instruments building in after the first chorus and Cornell really stretching his vocals, while "Only These Words" is a lovely acoustic tale about his young daughter(s).
"Circling" is a dreamy ELO/Beatles-style ballad, while "Our Time In The Universe" sets quivery guitars and Middle Eastern sounds to dance beats to good effect. It appears again as a remix with a denser feel. "Wrong Side" is atmospheric with cryptic lyrics and an americana feel, absolutely beautiful. "Misery Chain" is a moody guitar strum with Cornell crooning and sweeping to his upper range.
Intimate and sometimes edgy, it's always great to hear one of the most incredible voices in rock.
This album has Brendan O'Brien as producer and, funnily enough, the drums are mostly homegrown loops. Where this normally bothers me, it works on this album since Cornell is more about his voice and guitar skills.
There is an eclectic mix on this album. Sample it first before pulling the trigger. Some are total AC and others are unique, catchy tunes. In any event, this is a wonderful effort.
I typically try to include a handful of songs as my tops of an album, but after numerous listenings, that is still pretty hard. They are all equally good for various reasons (lyrics, hooks, chorus).
Obviously, Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart is solid (it was the first single). Murder of Blue Skies, Only These Words and Higher Truth stick out, as the tempo is faster than the majority of tracks. Our Time in The Universe is catchy as hell and you also get a remix on this album. It almost connects back with Scream, but in a much better way.
Having had numerous plays, I will be completely shocked if Our Time in the Universe isn't a huge success! Which version? Hmm. Not sure as both are great. If you are a Delain fan, it is like choosing which version of We Are The Others is "better."
The guys a genius and monster talent and that's all there is to it. A harder rocking guitar track or 2 and I probably would give it that 5th star.
Incredible. I hear different innuendos each time I play it. Great car CD by the way. You get lost in thought and music.
Chris Cornell, one of rock's greatest singers from the past 25 years, has had a hit-or-miss solo career. While he has released a number of classic albums with Soundgarden, and a few very good ones with Audioslave, his solo work is a little spotty. His debut, 'Euphoria Morning' (later released as 'Euphoria Mourning') (1999), was fantastic. More laid back and relaxed than his work with Soundgarden (or later Audioslave), it was clear that Cornell's solo work was going to sound a lot different than what his fans were used to. Going back to the haunting "Seasons" from the 'Singles' soundtrack, Chris' solo music generally avoids hard-rock terrain, going for a stripped down, mellower sound, with maybe slightly more reflective lyrics. 'Euphoria Morning/Mourning' is probably the most overlooked album in Chris' long, impressive resume and the best of his four solo albums.
After three albums with Audioslave, the supergroup made up of RATM alumni, came Chris' second album "Carry On" (2007). The album boasted one great song, "You Know My Name," from the James Bond film "Casino Royale." Other than that one terrific song, 'Carry On' was rather forgettable. It's not that the album was horrible, it's just that it was a rather bland, pedestrian affair. Two years later Cornell returned with the Timbaland produced "Scream," maybe the most critically lambasted album since "Van Halen 3.Read more ›

When I think of Chris Cornell, I obviously think of Soundgarten and Audioslave. Never was a fan of the former, or for grunge in general. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Eric F. Grodsky
Great stuff here. I like Chris's music. I think this album comes straight from his heart. It seems to be somber & not at all like the hard rock from the past. Nice change I think. Read morePublished 1 month ago by carol
