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.

The breakup of RATM represents the critical flaw of progressive politics in the US--countless bickering and infighting weakening the ability to educate via a powerful mass media channel. Opportunities RATM had only come once in awhile. Their inability to set aside their personal differences for the good of their political agenda is truly a causality for progressive politics in the United States. It truly saddens me to see the rise of an "Audioslave" and the demise of a "Rage Against the Machine."

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I hoped Dec 3 2002
Format:Audio CD
I was hoping a combination of Chris Cornell and Rage would of produced a better album ! It's ok but Chris conned them into putting a couple of bad style songs he put on his 2 solo cds!
Hopefully next time they can do better!

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh Sweet Irony Nov. 26 2002
Format:Audio CD
Sure. Some of these songs are a little catchy. But honestly, how did Chris Cornell think this was a good idea? Audioslave is Rage doing a Nickelback impression and Chris Cornell writing lyrics straight out of the late 90s mold of horrible, devirative hard rock like 3 Doors Down, or god, even Creed. The horror.
If you were ever a fan of ANY of these musicians, do yourself a favor and never buy this. The originals are ripping off the rip offs. Aye curumba.

I first want to say that R.A.T.M was one of my favorite bands of all time, and still is. I loved their purposeful lyrics mixed with the distinctive R.A.T.M sound. I think that Zach WAS R.A.T.M, and as soon as he left I knew the band couldn't live on without him. The way he sang with his raspy voice you could feel the hate and rage of the lyrics. And mix that with Tom's crazy guitar playing and you have the unique sound only R.A.T.M could produce. The band itself still has it, but when you mix their sound with Chris Cornell it is horrible. R.A.T.M was all about the rap/metal sound, and mixing that with Cris Cornell's alt-rock voice doesn't work. I think that these guys will forever be looked at as "the 3 remaining members of R.A.T.M and Soundgarden's lead singer" and never just the band Audioslave. I don't see this band lasting for a little more than a year. P.S- that name is horrible, is that the best they could come up with?

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, the moment I've been waiting for Nov. 20 2002
Format:Audio CD
Way back when I heard that the Zackless Rage Against the Machine was planning on a project Chris Cornell, I was extatic. Since Soundgarden broke up I have been waiting for quality material from Chris. The thought of this merging of two unbelievable bands blew my mind. Then I heard that it was canned and that put a damper on things.
Then not long ago I saw Tom of Rage on a cover of guitar magazine. Finding out that the band (now Audioslave) was making an album I regained hope. I eagerly waited the arrival and the day finally came. I was happy to hear the single, Cochise, was great. I got home only a few hours ago from buying the album and was absolutely blown away.
Every song is outstanding. the first single isnt even the best song on the album, in my opinion its the worst, and its a great song as I said before. Tom is an amazing guitar player and Chris' vocals go fantastic with the bands music.
I wont go into each song individually, but all I can say is this is a great great album and definately worth the wait. My favorite song has to be Set it off. I recomend this not only to fans of RATM and Soundgarden, but anyone who can appreciate good music. The best cd Ive bought in a while and to come out.

1.0 out of 5 stars 14 Boring Rock Songs For Consumers Nov. 19 2002
Format:Audio CD
So, here we have it. The worst elements of two bands watered down and limply performed for the sole purpose of selling records, which it will, but not if I can help it. This [stinks], really [stinks]. There is nothing good about this record. Every song is slow and painfully drawn out with no surprises to be had. There are quite a few guitar solos featured on this disc which are utterly laughable in there simplicity. Any kid with a guitar could have done the same thing. For those of you who are familar with the Rage stuff you will be amazed that these plodding, pointless tunes are the best these guys could come up with. [Heck], even the song titles are uninspired, "Like A Stone", "Exploder", "Bring Em Back Alive", etc., give me a break. While the collaboration of these veterans sounded lame on premise the results put to tape and released by the money hungry folks at Epic AND Interscope are ridiculous. This whole thing should have been aborted after the first 30 minutes of practice together. But no, they stuck together and spent years, really YEARS on this junk. If you happen to come across a copy of this the lyrics (all by Chris Cornell), are good for a chuckle. They read like an angst ridden 7th grader's poetry notebook and are full of vague references to creative topics like the sun, highways, setting things on fire and Jesus. Oh yeah, all the artwork is as bad as the music. It's really too bad that a -5 isn't available for these reviews because that's where Audioslave belongs.
