Soundgarden Reunion? Please?
Now I don’t mean to offend anyone who liked Audioslave (I actually liked their first record) or Chris Cornell’s solo material, but he’s gone too far…
“His new track (produced by Timbaland) “Long Gone” is a love song, which is OK because love is nice. It’s got flange-ing “My Love”-y production and a general “Apologize” vibe, which is OK because those were hits or something. But when you add that voice to the canned, cookie-cutter radio-ready mix, the voice that was once “Outshined,” and we’re down on our knees today: the grace fall is complete. You can stop now. Let’s please start with the forgetting. Forget redemption, I’ll go with repression.”
My opinion on all of this is that I saw it coming. It’s just painful to see all these crappy 80’s and 90’s bands reuniting and not see one of the best 90’s band’s (Soundgarden) not reunite. How could a reunited Soundgarden concert/tour not be successful?
Chris Cornell: Please, please call up Kim Thayil, tell him to bring his Gibson SG’s over. Then call up Ben Shepard and get Matt Cameron to take a break from Pearl Jam, strap on your Les Paul, get drunk and start kicking ass again! Please! Everyone wants you to do it.
