Product Description

Amazon.ca

Soundgarden combined the epic grandstanding of Led Zeppelin with the grunge buzz of Blue Cheer and the psychedelic undertones of the Butthole Surfers to create some of the definitive hard rock of the 1990s. This collection of what can loosely be defined as "hits" (hard rock isn't noted for its singles action) briefly sweeps over the indie years with SubPop and SST, placing emphasis on the band's successful A&M years. Singer Chris Cornell's histrionic wails grabbed the bulk of the attention, but the band's true power rested with the drumming of Matt Cameron and the twin guitar attack of Cornell and Kim Thayil. One need only listen to "Fell on Black Days" or "Blow Up the Outside World" to understand that Soundgarden's complex riffs and superb dynamics were its great strengths. --Rob O'Connor

4.0 out of 5 stars SoundGarden A-Sides CD Jan. 23 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Received the product exactly as advertised in a timely fashion. We are happy with the respective service & would recommend the seller.

The CD didn't exactly meet my pre-conceived ideas & I was personally somewhat disappointed - maybe, it's an acquired CD...especially, if you're not a hard-core fan.

Love the Seattle sound. Cornell's voice and songwriting mature perceptibly as you listen to this disc. Has pretty much all the greatest tunes from the band in 70-odd minutes

First off, If you didn't figure this out before, this album is essentially a compilation of the best songs from Soundgarden's 6 album spanning career, not necesarrily a Greatest Hits compilation, as many of the songs on here are not hits, but you will find many hits. Soundgarden, along with Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam, hit it big after the sucess of Nirvana with the sucess of Superunknown, which featured the massive hit "Black Hole Sun", "The Day I Tried To Live", and "Fell on Black Days". It also had the mildly popular "Spoonman", which introduced the major public to Soundgarden. Although this was Soundgarden's commercial breakthrough, they'd had many albums before this one. Soundgarden started off with the EP "Screaming Life/Fopp" which is represented on A-Sides with the haunting song "Nothing to Say", which has a surprising amount of maturity for a song released on their first album, and is one of my personal favorites. Thier next CD turned out to be a full LP, and it was called Ultramega OK, and this album is represented by "Flower", yet again another powerful song with great lyrics from Cornell. Next up Soundgarden released another LP, Louder Than Love, which is represented on A-Sides with "Loud Love", a song with a great chorus that sounds a lot like fellow Grunge band Mother Love Bone, "Hands All Over" has great guitar work from Kim Thayil, and " Get on the Snake", a song that to me sounds like late 80's metal with an AC/DC edge to it. Soundgarden's next album was their first Major Label release, and it was this album, not Nevermind, that was expected to blow the Alt Rock doors open. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, more titles, live cuts? April 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
A good collection, but it certainly could have been better.
Three songs I certainly would have considered adding, which I have not seen mentioned here, are:
Girl U Want (from BMF SOMMS) - among best cover tunes ever.
Slaves and Bulldozers (any live version ... no history of this band is complete without a live version of this song and that is all there is to it.)
Big Bottoms (live) - funny and loud and passionate and crud and musical all at once.
That would be a good start.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best of the northwest. April 21 2004
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
"Soundgarden" being a favorite band of mine for 15 years, I've got to own every album. But for the newcomer or casual fan, this collection pretty much gets to the point, "Soundgarden" rocks! Regardless of their sound at the time (punk, metal, grunge), they have consistently made excellent music, and this disc is proof of that. Included are the hits "Black Hole Sun", "Outshined", and "Burden In My Hand", as well as favorites "Nothing To Say", "Hands All Over", and "Fell On Black Days". Plus the cool unreleased track "Bleed Together". I could tell you what I miss on here, but I don't want to type that much. However my biggest question after many years is, where's "B-Sides".
