So I just realized this.


Does anyone else think Seasons Of Whither by Aerosmith sounds an awful lot like Soundgarden? I mean, I can just hear Chris singing that melody rather than Steven, and the chord progression reminds me of something like Black Hole Sun, or even Say Hello 2 Heaven actually.
Good call. I does have the darkness that's in Soundgarden's material and the vocals are definitely in Chris' range.

Back when Rush was being inducted into the RRHOF, my wish was to have Chris do the vocals on 2112 with the Foos and NIck. He could have tore 'Temples' up!

Oh wow, yeah that'd have been incredible!

so sad.

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.

that a cappella section towards the end. I think Chris Cornell was secretly a big fan of Queen's The Prophet's Song.

Oh Down On The Upside gets way better with subsequent listens. So much is standout now, not just the singles.
