Product Description

Amazon.ca

The debut of thundering supergroup Audioslave--featuring members of Rage Against the Machine post-Zack de la Rocha with ex-Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell--is as much curio as fascinating blend of visions. Cornell might be outnumbered, but his unmistakable holler and nihilistic imagery ensure that Audioslave, the album, recalls early Soundgarden. That's especially true since de la Rocha took Rage's signature rap and politicking with him. Still, if this is Soundgarden, it's Soundgarden set to stun. Rage guitarist Tom Morello is more of a mauler than Kim Thayil ever was--witness "Shadow on the Sun," which moves from bruising thud to psychedelic freak-out and back again--while the Rage rhythm section of Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk anchor the bottom end with pure instrumental cement. Intentionally or not, "Gasoline" bears passing resemblance to "Rusty Cage," while the sweeping "I Am the Highway" and slow-burning "The Last Remaining Light" best showcase Cornell's surprisingly New Age-y lyrical bent. Cover art by Storm Thorgerson, who gave Pink Floyd records their distinctive stamp, underscores the set's inherent celebrity. Fans of Rage and Soundgarden can raise clenched fists in unison, for Audioslave is win-win. --Kim Hughes

4.0 out of 5 stars entertaining and familiar Nov. 21 2002
Format:Audio CD
It's not exactly "rage against the machine", and it's not exactly "soundgarden", yet in both the backgound music and in the vocals of Chris Cornell, it adds up to a very good mix. The whole album is well done and shows true tallent (that is almost expected from guys like this). Not all the songs are wonderful, but the ones that are are a joy to listen to. Tom Morello and Tim C. have kept their same jazz fusion style mostly (including those funky guitar effects that we love so much), and Chris is still, undoubtedly, is one of the best vocalists in rock. The politics have completely gone along with Zach (though perhaps i've missed a couple metaphors) and are replaced with Chris's poetry about simple day to day life. Of all the courses Tom, Tim, and Brad could have taken this was probobly the best. I still miss Zach, his energy, and the political messages. Though rage only managed to do 4 albums, I still think they were one of the best bands ever, and rage's essence will be missed. Audioslave is a good effort. it's not better nor worse, just different.

3.0 out of 5 stars Misconceptions... Dec 8 2002
Format:Audio CD
First off there are a few misconceptions about this album that need to be cleared up. One: just because Tom Morello is involved doesn't make this a political band. Two: this album is not Rage Agaisnt The Machine finding a new vocalist, this is Chris Cornell trying to form a new Soundgarden with Rage's leftover parts. If you go into this one with either of those two misconceptions in your head, it's gonna be hard really getting into this disc. On the positive side, Morello, Commerford, & Wilk did a pretty good job of altering their playing style to suit Cornell's vastly different vocal style. It has been said the gap between Cornell and departed Rage vocalist Zack De La Rocha is equal to that between Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant and Chuck D of Public Enemy. All things considered, they made the transition fairly gracefully. On the other hand, they may have bent too much. Alot of the raw power (especially the prominent bass chords) that made RATM special feels too reined on most of this one. I guess it makes for a better Rock record overall, but if you were a fan of Rage's music, you'll feel more than a little empty. Bottom line, this is not the new RATM, it's closer to a new Soundgarden disc. If that's not okay by you, definitely steer clear. Otherwise, enjoy.

First thing's first you just have to buy this CD it kicks ass and if you turn up the volume on songs like Show Me How To Live, Chochise, Gasoline and Light My Way it will surely blow your mind and your head right off!
If you are a huge fan Rage Against The Machine (like I am) and a big fan of Soundgarden (like I am) the sheer strength and power in Chris Cornell's voice and the pure anger in Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilks exquisite playing you get the perfect band.......AUDIOSLAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There are a few surprises on the album; such as the haunting The Last Remaining Light and Getaway Car.Also the terrible truths in Cornells vocals and lyrics every single song.
The intensity on this album is just phenomenal you don't know whats going to come next.But when you do final realize it's knock out punches come at you again and again.
Do AUDIOSLAVE the honour of buying their album and find out what the hole rock world is in an uproar about!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for Rage fans, awesome for Soundgarden fans July 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is the collaboration of the recently disbanded Rage Against The Machine and Chris Cornell, the incredible voice of the also broken up Soundgarden. So, you would think they might make a record that's got a heavy funk rhythm section(RATM), with a powerful rock vocal(Cornell), wouldn't you? Well, no surprises here. That is exactly what you get, and I like it.
For those of you who were fans of Rage, it all depends on why you were a fan whether you appreciate this record or not. If the real appeal for you was Zach De La Rocha's rap-style vocal more than the bombastic groove of the band, then you may not enjoy this release as much as I did(and still do). With Cornell on the mic you get Soundgarden-like song structure, but you still have the perfect groove of Rage. These songs are MUCH less political, and more radio friendly.
This is usually a bad thing when it comes to hard rock. So many bands lose their edge when they try to appeal to a more mainstream audience, but I don't believe that's the case here. The edge is still there, just not in every track. These songs aren't experimental in an instrumental sense, or a lyrical sense. They are just typical, serious, well-crafted, straight forward rock songs. We even get quirky guitar wiz Tom Morello playing a straight forward acoustic-like track (see "I Am The
Highway"). His experimental playing takes a backseat to Cornell's haunting vocals on many of these songs. I think that Rage realizes what they have in Chris Cornell, and they want to showcase it. All lyrics were written by Cornell, and this is very obvious. In one of the best tracks on the release("Show Me How To Live"), Cornell rants "Nail in my hand, from my creator, you gave me a life, now show me how to live.
