Bidding for a popular breakthrough with their second major-label album, Soundgarden suddenly developed a sense of craft, with the result that Badmotorfinger became far and away their most fully realized album to that point. Pretty much everything about Badmotorfinger is a step up from its predecessors - the production is sharper and the music more ambitious, while the songwriting takes a quantum leap in focus and consistency. In so doing, the band abolishes the murky meandering that had often plagued them in the past, turning in a lean, muscular set that signaled their arrival in rock's big leagues. Conventional wisdom has it that despite platinum sales, Badmotorfinger got lost amidst the blockbuster success of Nevermind and Ten (all were released around the same time). But the fact is that, though they're all great records, Badmotorfinger is much less accessible by comparison. Not that it isn't melodic, but it also sounds twisted and gnarled, full of dissonant riffing, impossible time signatures, howling textural solos, and weird, droning tonalities. It's surprisingly cerebral and arty music for a band courting mainstream metal audiences, but it attacks with scientific precision. Part of that is due to the presence of new bassist Ben Shepherd, who gives the band its thickest rhythmic foundation yet - and, moreover, immediately shoulders the departed Hiro Yamamoto's share of songwriting duties. But it's apparent that the whole band has greatly expanded the scope of their ambitions. And Badmotorfinger fulfills them, pulling all the different threads of the band's sound together into a mature, confident, well-written record. This is heavy, challenging hard rock full of intellectual sensibility and complex band interplay. And with their next album, Soundgarden would learn how to make it fully accessible to mainstream audiences as well.

This is a good cd, but I would say SuPeRUNkOWN is better. This is a very good Debut for Soundgarden...I would never would want to start out better. Rusty Cage breaks out with a stream of guitars...then "I wanna break, I wanna break outta my rusty cage" Outshined is possible the best song on this cd...although, Rusty Cage is pretty good. Slaves and Bulldozers really never caught my attention...its too repetetive and the same lyrics keep going over and over again...I wouldn't try number 3. Jesus Christ Pose is really good, and has a good guitar riff. Face Pollution is a fast speed metal song, kind of like Kickstand, except just a little bit longer. Somewhere is a golden song that will go down in history forever. "I wish to wish, I dream to dream, I cry to cry and I live to live, and I die to die but nothing ever comes...OUT" Searching with my good eye closed is a VERY good song...its like one of the best songs on this cd. A room a thousand years wide, now that's a good song...It starts out with heavy guitars...derr, derr derrr derr derr, de dum, dum dum dum. Mind Riot is a VERY good song too...it is one of the best on this album. Drawing flies wasn't really all that great...another that never caught my attention. Holy Water is alright. It is a steady rock song. New Damage was one of those which never caught my attention...so actually this cd would be 4 and a half. I'm only being true people...but you should get this cd if you are a true Soundgarden fan like I.

Badmotorfinger was Soundgarden's breakthrough album.Take one listen to this stellar collection and you will see why. The record opens with the super-heavy,super-hypnotic ''Rusty Cage''and takes the listener on an unforgetable journey through the otherworldly music of Soundgarden. Badmotorfinger rocks from first note to last and is highlighted by the self-loathing anthem ''Outshined'',the thundering,terrifying opus ''Slaves And Bulldozers'',the assaultive,pummeling ''Jesus Christ Pose''as well as songs like ''Searching With My Good Eye Closed'' and ''Mind Riot.'' Badmotorfinger was perhaps the definitive Soundgarden album, and it set the stage for two more classic Soundgarden records:''Superunknown'' and ''Down On The Upside.'' This CD features what have become Soundgarden's trademarks: Chris' amazing vocals,Kim's heavy,trippy riffage and chaotic leads,Ben's sturdy basslines, and Matt's pulsing drum beats. Throw in some musicial adventurousness and thought provoking lyrics,you have classic SOUNDGARDEN!

To put it quite simply this is the biggest album I have ever heard. I grant it was a slow decline after this album for the band
This album has some of the most ripping and evil guitar licks ever heard, the riff to rusty cage is nuts.
cornells voice is amazing on this album, I am sure he could have been an opera singer in a former life with a range like his. His voice is amazing in the way that he can scream to the point of distorting the microphone through an entire octave slide, without his voice breaking up at all. I dream of having a voice like his.
The lyrics on this album are very well written is Cornell's usual form. I personaly think that his best lyrics to date were on "Temple of the dog".
So this is an album is about as close to perfect as say "OK Computer" was to the late 90's, there is absolutely no filler on this album, they are back to back gems. If you only buy one album of their's this is it, it is big, it is loud and it pulls no punches.
