Product Description

Amazon.ca

"Fell on Black Days," indeed. Seattle sludge slingers Soundgarden made a living out of cathartic, woe-is-me wailing (we're talking the banshee vocals of Chris Cornell and the crypt-creaking guitar of Kim Thayil), but this wallowing in grim depression ironically proved to be the band's most uplifting career effort. When the reclusive Cornell ventures out of his shy-guy shell, it's typically via a primal scream of cathartic emotion--he might camp it up with a sophomoric "Spoon Man," but most of this vicious disc leaps straight for your jugular. Generations in the post-millennial future will one day refer to this record to discover exactly how 1990s rock & roll was done. --Tom Lanham

3.0 out of 5 stars Beau coffret June 30 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
La qualité du coffret et de l`ensemble est sans reproche et rend justice à ce merveilleux album, mais le mix surround 5.1 est très moyen par contre. Je recommande quand même à cause de la qualité globale de l`ensemble.

SG. How can anyone go wrong? Hope they do something similar for Badmotorfinger. Hell, all their albums are great. Can't wait to see them again this year.

A major label announces two surround titles within a couple weeks of each other, a first in a very long time in North America where the majors have given up on surround sound since around 2005/2006 when they withdrew from the Super Audio CD/DVD-Audio format war. Could this be the push some of us have been hoping for finally starting? Soundgarden and Bob Marley both getting brand new 5.1 mixes?

Well after 8 weeks of asking we finally got the details of this release a few days ago in terms of the technical specs, they did go back to the original analogue multitracks to create the 5.1 mix and they did go back to the original analogue stereo master to create the vinyl, although they archived it to 24/192 and then mastered in the digital domain. Adam Kasper who produced Down on the Upside and King Animal was going to do the 5.1 mix, he has no 5.1 credits to his name so that was a bit concerning but at least he was using the multitracks so we knew we could hope for a fully discrete mix.

Now as we begin to listen we realize it was all for nought, despite all the care taken or seemingly being taken to go back to the original source material we have a release that's been slammed in true loudness wars fashion. One might have expected the regular CDs and lossy digital download files to be victims, but this is also available on Blu-ray Audio in 24-bit/96kHz stereo AND on another audiophile website (name removed in case it's against review policies) as a 24-bit/192kHz download. These are both equally as dynamically challenged as the CD! It makes no sense. People buy 24-bit to listen to on superior equipment. Dynamically lifeless music is only bearable on the cheapest in ear buds while busy commuting or working out when you're not really paying attention to the music.

Soundgarden was at their creative peak with the release of this album. Soundgarden had successful singles in Spoonman, Fell on Black Days and my personal fave, Black Hole Sun. Soundgarden has released a must-have album. 12 years ago, this was the best metal album and quite possibly one of the best grunge albums in the 90s. Chris Connell shines on this album and Superunknown was a #1 album. This album is brilliant and a metallic masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars The last great rock CD March 22 2005
Format:Audio CD
11 years and counting since this CD came out. 11 years and counting since there has been another rock CD as good as this. Every track on here is an absolute killer. No filler, no dumb lyrics, no choruses that get amazingly boring after one listen (Linkin Park and Green Day anyone?) "Fell On Black Days" is an amazing track along with "Superunknown", "Spoonman", "The Day I Tried To Live", and of course "Black Hole Sun" which has a great guitar solo about 3 minutes into the song. Everything here sounds very original despite the heavy Zeppelin/Sabbath influences that Soundgarden has. It's too bad they are no more however the were smart to exit while on top and Cornell's new group, Audioslave, is a band to watch out for.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Best Grunge Album and Band in the 90's June 22 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I dont know how to explain on how this album was one of the best albums in the 90's fellowed by Badmotorfinger. It's obvious that Superunknown was consciously styled as a masterwork, and it fulfills every ambition.
