4.0 out of 5 stars Better than "OK". March 6 2004
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
I admit, this first full album from "Soundgarden" may not be as mindblowing as some of their others, but it's still pretty killer. It's a great mix of styles: metal, stoner-rock, punk, and I suppose grunge overall. "Chris Cornell" may not have mastered his voice yet, but he still lets loose on "Beyond The Wheel" and "Circle Of Power". The opener and single "Flower", is a great early "Soundgarden" song. I really like the cover of "Smokestack Lightning", which is an old blues song, and they also end with John Lennon's "One Minute Of Silence", which is just what it says it is. "Ultramega OK" needs remastering, but it still rocks, and is a must for any real fan. The best thing is, each album after this one gets better and better.

3.0 out of 5 stars calm before the storm April 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
soundgarden went on to become one of the greatest bands ever in rock. they combine wailing vocals with distorted guitar to support dark lyrics. a meld of many most notably, zepplin and sabbath with some melvins thrown in, soundgarden do not really shine yet on this album. it is good but not great. this album is not very ear friendly as the production is raw and under produced.
chris cornell had not yet grown to his true brilliance of vocal mayhem while kim thayil was still growing as a guitar player. hiro yamamato and matt cameron were, also, growing as a rhythm section. the songs are good but not great. they are gritty with an understated sound that makes this one cd to check out. i agree with the idea that if all you own is the "great" loud love and up then you are missing out

3.0 out of 5 stars not the band's best but still good May 9 2002
Format:Audio CD
Compared to Soundgarden's later albums like louder than love, Ultramega OK doesn't really stand out. The songwriting isn't as great as badmoterfinger or superunknown. The sound quality of the album isn't perfect, probbaly due to the shoe string budget.
However, the album does provide a usefeul introduction into what would become one of the greatest heavy metal bands ever. Defenitely worth listening to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite the CD. Rock out or feel the pain, it's got it all. Dec 14 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ultramega OK was Soundgarden's first full-length release, coming out on SST Records. Chris, Kim, Matt, and Hiro definitely entered with a splash. Two previous EPs (Screaming Life and Fopp) were a good indication of what was in the works for this Seattle band. This CD does have it's share of filler (i.e. a cover of Smokestack Lightning, and a cover? of Two Minutes of Silence by John Lennon and Yoko Ono..called One Minute of Silence (Soundgarden cut out Yoko Ono's half)). What it has in filler it makes up with an awesome set of songs. Flower has a wonderful power riff and touches of psychadelia. Beyond the Wheel is probably one of Soundgarden's best performances, although most people have never even heard of it. The whole thing is truly frightening. The lyrics, the dark, heavy, grinding guitars, and the vocals work together in an almost god-like fashion. I love the weird industrial sounding guitar noises that Kim makes during this song. They also flow amazingly well with the rest of the piece. Soundgarden also shows the first signs of their odd sense of humor on this CD. In the song 665, you can hear Chris singing backwards in the background of the song. A satanic message? If you can play the song backwards, you'll find that Chris is saying "Hey Santa, you're my Christmas king, Santa is king! Santa is king! Hey Santa, I love you baby! You got what I neeeeed," and so on. All in all, this album is an awesome full-length debut.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soundgarden's raw, dark masterpiece of an album Jan. 30 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After two very good EP's on Sub Pop Records-Screaming Life and Fopp-Soundgarden moved to SST Records to record their first full-lenght LP. And what a smashing debut it was. Ultramega OK offers a faint glimpse into what would become Soundgarden's signature sound:an intense,brooding mixture of wailing vocals, dark,noisy riffs, crunching rhythyms,steady but powerful drumming and intelligent,thought-provoking lyrics channeled through gloomy metal,punk fury,and surrealistic pschyedelia. This album opens with the chunky chords of the very heavy,very trippy ''Flower.'' Other highlights include the fiery,punkish ''All Your Lies''and the speed-changing,mood-changing brilliance of ''Mood For Trouble.'' But the record's centerpiece is ''Beyond The Wheel,'' a song with earth-shattering vocals and mind-blowing guitar sounds. Buy this cd, as well as all of Soundgarden's other cd's.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unique March 3 2006
By P - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's pretty cool to be able to go back and hear one of your favorite bands as they were when they were still finding their sound. On this album, you can hear their experimentation with various kinds of rock; heavy, raw metal and such. And you can also hear where they found what works for them, and developed it. Thayil's heavy, raw but sonically pleasing guitar grooves that were characteristic of the band are present here, as are (less often than later on) Cornell's emotion-racked shrieks. My personal favorite is the utterly explosive vibe of Incessant Mace.

There are some missteps, but those are taste-directed; I don't really like the abstract 665 and 667 interludes and the psychopathic Circle of Power. Still, it's very worth a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars UltrmegaOK is more than okay April 23 2007
By Lee A. Barnard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In 1988 I walked into Tower Records on South Street in Philadelphia sporting a mohawk, a leather, and Doc's. I was looking for the latest Charged GBH album. As I strolled the isles I heard this album playing in the background. I stopped dead in my tracks. I listened to three songs and then asked the dude at the register who was playing. He smiled, reached under the counter, and pulled out this record. I immediately bought it and life changed forever.

Disregard reviews that compare this album with Superunknown or Badmotorfinger. You simply can't compare this (or "Louder than Love" for that matter) with their later works. It's like comparing Dark Side of the Moon with The Wall and declaring one inferior.

Listen to the samples and judge for yourself. In my humble opinion this is one black, hard, and raw album and also happens to be one the best rock-n-roll records of the 1980s.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing Aug. 9 2004
By Frank Booth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
this is one of the heaviest and most original records of all time. listen to the song "beyond the wheel" and tell me those lyrics are not haunting and incredible.

you can really hear the ungodly amazingly excellent guitar playing of kim thayil on their cover of "smokestack lightning." tracks like "nazi driver" will make you want to kill someone or break something.

i would reccomend this album to anyone.
