I've heard the album. It's pretty solid. Been Away Too Long, Non State Actor, By Crooked Steps, Blood on Valley Floor, Bones of Birds, Attrition, Halfway There, Worse Dreams and Rowing are all great songs. The rest of material is just decent. Rowing is a straight up blues song with very soulful singing. Easily the best track on the album.

They only doing for the money, which is why they put so much effort into an excellent, super tight album which is better than anything Billy put out since Zwan.

That's 9/13 being great, the rest decent. Not too terrible if you ask me.

I'm on my first listen and enjoying it A LOT so far.

Actually I think its a toss up between Bones of Birds and Rowing for best song off the album. Bones of Birds is very touching and heart-wrenching. Better than most of Down On The Upside. Didn't think Chris still had it in him to write something like that.

The whole band sounds great, but to me this sounds like a Kim Thayil album. He really shines here. Matt is also fantastic, though I like it more when it plays a but more loose like on Down on the Upside and his first two albums with Pearl Jam.

To me this still feels like Chris dominated the songwriting. Kim doesn't really stand out on this very much. I would even say Matt is more distinctive on this album than Kim is. The psychedelia that was apparent on DOTUS and Superunknown is all gone.

I don't know. I hear a lot of the Asian influences Kim always brought to the table.

It will be interesting to see the credits.

Halfway There is the song that comes closes to Cornell's solo stuff. It's his version of Beatles pop. The song has a good spot on the album. His voice sounds excellent, btw. This albums makes me want to see this band play live.

This is really boring as fuck. Oceania shits all over this album. And Chris's voice is trash. Soundgarden was always a second tier grunge band.

These are just...really...tiring songs.

Not that this current output is anything to write home about...but how in the hell could Soundgarden be considered a "second tier" grunge band from a historical perspective? They were one of the early hard rock grunge bands (from the mid-80's), the guys knew their instruments well, and Chris's voice had great range, projection, and strength.

This new album is definitely a step above Oceania. It's a solid B while Oceania is nothing better than a C.

I wouldn't even call Soundgarden a grunge band like I wouldn't call Alice In Chains a grunge band either, honestly.

what the fuck is grunge, that's not a real thing, I thought we all realized this when we were 16

none of these bands are stylistically alike, other than heavy abrasive guitar music. They get lumped together cause they were in the same "scene" or whatever

Grunge: 90s bands that use power chords and stuff.

This album is just garbage. Oceania is way better than this crap. Soundgarden sucked then, still suck now.
