First let me say that there's a version of this that comes with a 3 track DVD also. The songs "Searching With My Good Eye Closed", "Let Me Drown" and "Face Pollution". It's exclusive to that Big Box store with the yellow pricetags.

This was all recorded during their 1996 tour along the west coast, hence the title. It's not all the same show but I think it's stronger because of that. I've had a live 1994 European bootleg for years and this sounds way, way better. I would hope so being an official release. The tracklist is as expected: heavy on the last three albums with all the essential "hits". I could complain at length about having no songs from Ultramega OK or Louder Than Love here, but I'll stay positive.

Other than the obvious choices I'm most pleased that "Searching With My Good Eye Closed" made the cut. A personal top 5 song of mine. I also wouldn't expect to see "Head Down" or "Boot Camp" here, but glad they are. Having spent time in the military I can really relate to that song. Soundgarden has always chosen their covers well. In the past they've done Sabbath, Stones and Devo. Here we get The Beatles and The Stooges. Both well done. The singing on this release is good, but not quite to the studio standards. But seriously, who could belt these songs out for 90 minutes a night. Your throat would bleed.

So last year we get an updated "Best Of" collection and DVD. Here's our long awaited live album (77+ min). I suppose those B-sides will show in the near future. Oh, and they're working on a new album too. Maybe some tour dates will produce a "Live in 2011" album in 2026.

Being a 'garden fan forever I'm very critical of their work. I have tons of bootlegs of shows and rare discs. When people say Cornell can either be really off or really on, they are very right. Hell, even Cornell himself said Soundgarden was a band that could just as easily be off as it could be on while performing... but when they were on, they were golden greek gods wrapped in heavenly buttered tortillas.
With that being said, on this record they are ON. Believe me. You will hear people say that Cornell's not hitting the notes on the songs the way he did on the record blah blah blah. Here's what they don't understand though... Chris interprets songs differently live and I don't think he ever gave a crap about recreating the exact same thing as on the studio recording. To him and the rest of the band their music is living and breathing art... and it naturally evolves the more they play it. On this record he's not hitting bad notes, he's just doing some different melodies here and there and doing things completely different than he did in the studio. To me that is AMAZING. But some people aren't comfortable with that. Would I want a live record of a band that does everything the exact same way as they did on the record? Hell no! And I can't imagine why anyone else would. Before getting this album, the thought of hearing improvisations and new melodies excited me... especially since we've been listening to the same songs with the same melodies for 20 years. If you're a real fan of the band and understand what I'm gettin' at, you will LOVE this record. People bent out of shape because Cornell's not hitting the same melodies as on record should just listen to what they are comfortable with... the studio recordings. If you want to hear one of the reasons Soundgarden was legendary (creativity, improvisation, and thunderfuk of a live show), then pick this up ASAP!

After many years of Soundgarden, we finally get the band's first live album. I pre-ordered the album and recieved it a few days ago, allowing me sometime to let it soak in. Having let that happen, I can definitely say that this album is totally worth getting for hardcore Soundgarden fans (duh) and kinda Soundgarden fans. It's not really a great place to enter into the band I think. If you've just barely heard of them (i.e. just know Black Hole Sun and Spoonman), I suggest going out and getting Superunknown and Badmotorfinger. Those two albums are the main ones represented here, with a few from Down on the Upside and one older song (Nothing to Say).

So with all that said, I think I'm going to give an overview, pointing out some lows and highs, general trends, etc. It starts off with a thundering crowd into the instantly recognizable riff of Spoonman. The vocals here are a little whack, and we're missing Cornell's signature screaming at times, which was kind of a bummer. And there's some weirdly timed "all my friends are brown and red" and "beat the rhythm with their bones" thrown in. Not a huge fan. But nevertheless, Spoonman sets the pace for the rest of the album. Cornell might not be 100%, but Thayil, Cameron and Shepherd are bringing their A-game. They absolutely rock. Thayil's guitar is fantastic throughout almost the entire album, Cornell has his moments of awesomeness and some really impressive vocals, but this album stands out to me as the Shepherd/Cameron show. They are just locked in throughout the entire album, and that was a really great thing to listen to.

I was a little bummed about Let Me Drown, because that is maybe my favorite Soundgarden song. The vocals here did not come off well, Cornell sounds reluctant to go to a high octave.
