Of all the great frontmen to come out of the Seattle grunge scene, I always like Chris Cornell's voice the best. Of course it's showcased really nicely in "Black Hole Sun", the key single off this album. The whole album is great though, keeping Soundgarden's unique sound but making a really great mainstream album. Yes, it's a bit dark and brooding, but that's what's great about it.
Wow... Black Hole Sun. I remember that was one of the first music videos I really remembered (we didn't have MTV - but I saw it at a friend's house) and that barbie doll on a spit really stuck out to me. Spoonman is also one of my favorites on this album.
I dont know if you heard yet or not, but Soundgarden is back together! Yes, after a 12 year hiatus, one of the greats from my youth is back.So, i think it's time to dust off their old records. This is my favorite.
