So, this popped up on Rhapsody as a “new album” (I know what it means, but at the same time, they really need to work more on their organizational scheme), and so of course I listened to it, because I need the sweet, sweet vocals of Chris Cornell like breathing.
I was a little disappointed.
I don’t like talking about things I don’t like on here, because what’s the point? If I don’t like something, I don’t have to listen to it. But I need things to talk about while I work on more playlists to share, and it’s not like this is bad. It’s still Audioslave, and a few of the most famous tracks. There were even two tracks I hadn’t heard–“Loud Love” and “Sleep Now in the Fire.” So that was excellent. But, maybe just the recording, it felt…a little weak for Audioslave. I never got to hear the band in concert, but I have heard Chris Cornell live, and I love his performance. But this recording underwhelmed me for a live track.
Still, there were new tracks for me since I hadn’t sought the recording out before, and for that, I am grateful.
- Be Yourself
- Loud Love
- Doesn’t Remind Me
- Out of Exile
- Sleep Now in the Fire (weirdly reminds me of “Renegades of Funk.” Which I guess is fitting.)
