Silver Supporting Member
+1000, every word.This sounds like a perfect 1st or 2nd song on an album. King Animal will be a disappointment IMO if this is the best song on there, but this is very promising and very encouraging - unlike that Avengers soundtrack song, this actually sounds like Soundgarden, and not just Chris Cornell backed by Kim Thayil & Co.
This is pretty much how I feel. I'm liking the song more after a few times through. I think Chris sounds good. At least he doesn't sound like he's pushing his voice past it's threshold. I think it's very much in his comfort zone & something that won't kill him live singing it over and over.Gave the song a few good listens today and I think it rocks pretty hard. A little simpler and catchier groove (reminds me of recent Foo Fighters a bit) but its undeniably SG. Has the odd time signature twists in there and texturing that are SG trademarks. I think Chris sounds pretty good too... he has lost some power on his voice and its a bit raspier now but I think he does a good job. Better that some of his recent solo records. Definitely has some Superunknown qualities to it along with a new and fresh energy. Overall way better than I expected and if this is the safer "single" song on the album then I am really looking forward to hearing the rest of it. Bottom line is the world needs some good straight up hard rock music and this is a welcome addition to the indie rock garbage thats all over radio today.
