Got Down On The Upside finally the other day.
This isn't clicking with me immediately, but neither did Superunknown and half of Badmotorfinger. It's like they got simultaneously more nuanced/complex and more punky/diy in places. It's anything but boring, especially considering Applebite, but above all there are at least three or four songs on here I already love, so I think I'm set into my Soundgarden fandom at this point.
What do you all think of it?
It's a strong album, but you get a sense that it's kind of a 'hangover' album from Superunknown. SU was such a monster, it was nearly impossible to top it with the next album.
Therefore my comment that its like a part 1 part 2 album set... Never mind that they are both double album in length apiece. Both killer albums. I was happy when they arrived.
Been digging into Temple of the Dog. Reach Down is awesome. The vocals are great and the guitar sound is un-f-ing-real. Love it.
