This is hands down my single-favorite Soundgarden cd, ahead of Superunknown, and that then ahead of the evilest Down On The Upside, which direly needs to more aptly be called 'Down on the Downside'. This album is the definitive metal record, if you choose to disregard the fine Alice In Chains' efforts. Soundgarden at its wildest and most untamed, this cd boils over with urgent aggression and a need to poetize one's stormy mind storms in the medium of songwriting. This reason is most likely, exactly why this is the most harsh AND potent of all of Soundgarden's records. The disparaging analogies, which harm Soundgarden's ability for originality, of Soundgarden being influenced by Led Zeppelin are so slanderous that it would be a complete, laughable joke, were it not monstrously damaging to their reputation as a Seattle original. I.E., that Zeppelin banshee's voice is much more painfully high-pitched than Cornell's could EVER reach. That, and also Cornell's got a better depth and, importantly, a wider range which doesn't just solely embrace and exaggerate to the most disreputably high wails. Additionally, Soundgarden's guitarist is harshly more qualified to shred, and then compose powerful solos on the guitar.
As for the songs, they precisely capture the most electrifying and energetic jamming of Soundgarden's whole career. Unluckily, their follow-up, Superunknown, would contrast this noisy shredding with more despairing and slow beats. Guitars are played with the wildest of abandon, as Cornell's "buzzing" shredding balances equally with Thayil's sonic-piercing cacophony.

If one were to write a review for this double cd set one ought to be familiar with the material(other reviewers take note).
The Badmotorfinger album was in my opinion Soundgarden's finest hour,although Superunknown was a greater commercial success,the band really got their sound and chops down on this album. Ben Sheperd stepped in to replace Hiro Yamamoto,and his songwriting skills and musicianship meshed perfectly with the rest of the group.All the songs are good,with standouts such as "Good Eye Closed" and "Outshined" which was a staple on MTV.
Kim Thayil is god on the guitar,and Cornell has the lungs of a young Ronnie James Dio,with such range it's hard to beleive he is human. Matt Cameron is a good drummer,and even Neil Peart said so(Neil Peart is the best drummer who ever lived,in case anyone was wondering).
As for the bonus cd,a collection af b-sides and live material,I like it a lot. I love their version of DEVO'S "Girl U Want,and "Into The Void",which really is a Sabbath cover(their influence is heavy on this album)along with the others. For the collector I would recommend this particular item,otherwise you could buy a Cure album and go blow goats.

When I was 9, my family finally got with the times and got a CD player and the very first CD I got (and listened to) was Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger. I almost played this album out and to this day (9 years later) I still love it. From the dual guitars in "Rusty Cage" to the dreary "New Damage," this was a definitive album for Soundgarden, and it was on this album that their craft of Black Sabbath-like drudgery and Led Zeppelin-influenced sophistication (with a hint of Rush-like odd time signatures). My favorites on this album were always "Outshined," "Slaves & Bulldozers," "Jesus Christ Pose," "Searching w/ My Good Eye Closed," "Room 1000 Years Wide," and "New Damage." With Chris Cornell belting out heavy high-pitched lyrics of pure angst, with the amazing guitar solos of Kim Thayil, and the awesome rhythm section of Ben Shepard and Matt Cameron (now of Pearl Jam), Badmotorfinger is a definitive album by Soundgarden, although they would get better on their final 2 efforts.

Before the team of Chris Cornell (vocals), Kim Thayil (lead guitar), Ben Shepard (bass), and Matt Cameron (drums) made their biggest commercial breakthrough in the classic Superunknown, they released perhaps one of the hardest, rawest, most metallic records out of Seattle. That album is Badmotorfinger, released in 1991.
Badmotorfinger is perhaps Soundgarden at their prime--a tumultous, pummeling titan equal parts Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, with a psychedelic metal tinge. The punky tendencies of the band's earlier material are not present here, except in the two-minute long Face Pollution and Drawing Flies. Most of the songs are 4 minutes or longer, and the band shines in this epic style. Cornell shreds his voice with some of the most impressive wails this side of Robert Plant, Thayil unleashes some suprisingly technical riffs (Rusty Cage is just insane!), and the rhythm duo of Shepard and Cameron is fast, tight, and focused. Odd time signatures are employed to full effect (ex. Outshined, Jesus Christ Pose). I love how the band was experimenting with new ideas, such as horns.
There is not a spot of filler anywhere on the album, at least not to my ear. Everything is excellent, though I'd have to single out the crushing epic Slaves And Bulldozers, the fast-riffing Drawing Flies, and the rolling thunder of Room A Thousand Years Wide as faves.
This is Soundgarden unfiltered--people who love the band for Black Hole Sun probably won't immediately like this harder and less commercial Soundgarden. However, it is every bit the equal of the masterful Superunknown. As good as the other records of 1991 were--Ten, Nevermind, Blood Sugar Sex Magik--Badmotorfinger simply "outshines" them all. Highly reccommended.
