Stop being so damn introspective...

you have talked me into listening to this album. I will let you know what I think
E X C E L L E N T!! I read every single word too. Sending you some rep for this one, Freetime. I have never written an album review here, because to do it right (like you have done above) would take me hours. This is very well written, and error free.
I used that same band pic in my SG appreciation thread (I love that pic, and I'm not sure I've seen a better one). I love what you wrote about Jesus Christ Pose, and although I disagree that you failed to do the song justice I understood exactly why you felt that way. The screaming that Cornell does on that song is epic, and it's impossible to describe with words. You need to crank that song up loud to truly appreciate and feel it. I know you like Mind Riot, and that is another killer song on this album. It's impossible for me to pick favorites, because they all work for me! I also can't possibly add another word to your review, because you absolutely nailed this album! You've left me: Looking California and feeling Minnesota. Oh yeah. So now you know, whooo gets mystified!
I have this album but have only listened to it once. I will have to play it again after reading your review Freetime, very well done.
And imagine Trey sending you rep for a review for an album with Chris Cornell on it, shocking...
Thanks Trey and LG... Positive reviews always makes me feel good, especially after typing about such a topnotch album!
OK freetime here is my opinion of this album:
banana split: perfectly ripe banana split in half, 3 scoops of Häagen-Dazs silky smoothe vanilla ice cream, pineapple topping on the middle scoop of ice cream with rich dark chocolate topping on the other two scoops, whipped cream dazzled across the top, fine german chocolate shavings, and a perfectly round cherry in the middle of the whip cream.
IT DONT GET NO FINER THAN THAT!!
I have to be honest, I had never taken the time to listen to Soundgardern before, and I realllllly like Cornells voice.
I am going to get more of their CD's. This CD would be hard to beat, it rocked. I didn't find a bad track on it. You will have to PM me what to listen to next.
This is perhaps my favourite Soundgarden album. It's just perfect on my ears. Awesome review too, very interesting to read.
