When I heard of the reunion of Rage Against the Machine (minus Zach) and Chris Cornell, I just damn about shit my pants. Soundgarden was and will always be the best grunge band ever, and Rage, well; it's just kind of hard not to like them. So with great anticipation, I headed off to the record store to pick up this cd, and when I entered and heard it being played throughout the store, I knew that it had to be good (especially when the cashier said it had been in his CD player for the past two weeks). I am having a hard time pinning down how to concisely describe Audioslave. They are Soundgarden, yet they are Rage. There are the distinct vocals of Chris Cornell and there is the insanely distinct sound of Tom Morello on the guitars. The end result is a marriage of sounds that should only be allowed to be played in heaven.

The CD opens fast and furiously with Cochise. For anyone that isn't immediately hooked forty nine seconds into this album, they deserve to be shot. The guitars start up with something that resembles Rage with the Soundgarden edge, and then Chris Cornell starts howling. What else can be said but, dear lord.

After a couple of tracks that sound a tad bit similar to Cochise (but just as awesome) Audioslave slows it down a bit for What You Are. This track shows off the amazing vocal abilities of Cornell. This song is definitely a look back to Soundgarden, flashing between a lighter, more ballad tone and the heaviness that can be expected. The highlight of this song has to be the classic Morello solo, heavy on the effects and distortion. It's simple in itself, but so complex at the same time.

One of the highlights of the CD has to be the astonishing effect that Morello pulls on the fifth track, Like a Stone. It's a weird noise that only he could make and only he could even dream of.

Now, very few albums can be completely good, and I have only one beef with this album. In the days before the super group formed, way back in the days when both Soundgarden and Rage existed, they both were bands full of angst and rage (who would've thought). That edge seems to have been slightly lost with Audioslave. Now I know the whole thing where Cornell said he didn't want to be replacing Zach when he hopped aboard, but it takes away slightly from the album.

Nevertheless, this album rocks more than anything ever. If I had thought about it more, I might put this in the top 5 albums of 2002. It's alternative at its finest. Call in your local radio station and tell them to only play Audioslave. Fuck Korn, fuck Puddle of Mudd. Only Audioslave.

Chris Cornell's voice fits perfectly with the sound of Morello and co. People are bound to hate Cochise just because its 'popular', i expect that anyway

But Shadow of the sun, Gasoline and like a stone and just simply brilliant..

At first i didnt like Cochise when i heard it but a year later ive changed my mind...especially when I heard Show me how to live and Like a stone...Its not bad at all ,i just needed some time to get used to this new voice of C.Cornell.I was a SG fan and I have never listened to RATM but i think they are OK although no one cant replace for me Kims guitar or Matts drumms or Bens bass...

Awful fucking band.

You people that are griping about how bad audioslave sucks are fucking tools. I don't know about you, but when I turn on the radio I'd rather hear something with actual instruments that requires talent and practice to play that any of that electronic pop-bullshit THAT THE BANDS DON"T EVEN WRITE. This band writes and plays their own music. I'll give any band credit for that, because it sure beats the hell out all these pop-assholes who have other people write their music for them.

The term 'grunge' was coined I believe by Mark Arm in the early 80's...

"Waste, how does this sound?

The Beach Boys are 500 times better than the Beatles ever were!!!"

it sounds pretty fuckin stupid. i'm not even going to bother getting mad it that statement.

yeah, the beach boys had their place in rock history but to say they were 500x better than the beatles is ludicrous. the beatles impact on modern music is incalculable. they were constantly breaking new ground and pretty much inventing (or re-inventing i should say) rock and roll as we know it today.

NOBODY was better or more vital than the beatles and that's a fact.

Waste, how does this sound?

its official. the wussemo comment about bush being better than nirvana only proves he is purposely trying to piss people off. no one can have that bad a taste in music.

What are you talking about, waste? Why would someone just try to piss you folks off? I can't comprehend this.

waste_elite (November 29, 2002)

i honestly think Wuss is just here to annoy people. it's not humanly possible for someone to be THAT devoid of taste.

Anonymous (November 29, 2002)

I agree, punk and grunge go hand in hand..grunge (real grunge) seems to be a mutant form of punk...many bnds in the grunge era were so close to the 'punk' line..The gits, Seaweed, Zipgun, and even Nirvana. I bought that Grunge documentary and so many bands are good, but grunge is hard to define..

and bush better than nirvana? who they fuck thought of that? both bush the band and the Pres should be shot.

evildeadalive (November 29, 2002)

My theory is that wuss and JOE_MOMMA are the same person. JOE realized he wasn't annoying people anymore, people were starting to think he was funny, so he changed his persona to that of wussemorock to once again be known as the most annoying person on this site.

Yeah, that "Bush is better than Nirvana" comment must be the most stupid post EVER on this site.

Punk & Grunge go hand in hand. I would consider some of Black Flag's work "grudgish"- look at My War and Slip It In. They were very excellenyt, grungy albums. But to some it may be punk. To me it is punk.....Nirvana's sound is punk. Just like I think SOAD is more of a punk band than it's label of "nu metal".

waste_elite (November 29, 2002)

"I can't believe someone campared Bush and Nirvana. Bush are so much better!"

jesus christ, i just caught that comment. you've said some stupid things in your time Wuss but this takes the cake. BUSH is essentially Nirvana MINUS balls, intelligence, originality, substance, and any other good thing Nirvana had going for em. they are a fucking rip-off band for christ's sake! the only reason they existed was to capitalize on Nirvana's success. jesus, fuck. you are an idiot and bush is an example of everything that is wrong with the music industry.

i'm just waiting for you to say that the Monkees were better than the Beatles. it honestly wouldn't surprise me.

waste_elite (November 29, 2002)


actually there is (or was). as far as mainstream bands, i can't really think of any bands (with the possible exception of Nirvana) that would fit that category though. pearl jam, soundgarden, alice in chains and a slew of others all got labeled Grunge even though they really sounded nothing like grunge bands.

Anonymous (November 29, 2002)

a couple other things:

1) i haven't heard this cd yet, but even if it was good (which i doubt it is) i'm sure it's not worth 5 stars...it just can't be.

2)my theory: wussemorock is nothing more than a robot programmed to gather information on everything that makes visitors to the site get angry. it then regurgitates the information in the form of reviews and message posts, and proceeds to get ITS ASSHOLE LICKED BY RICHARD SIMMONS. that's the only way that a person/thing could be as wrong and have as gay a taste in music as wussemorock. fuckin dipshit. no more drinking after 11 pm for me....

10/10 for the cover art, it's gravy.

as for wuss: first you shit your pants explaining how great simple plan is, then you call nirvana and kurt cobain shit, and now you're putting down rage??? i swear, people like you make me so mad. do us all a favor and don't come back until your knowledge of music surpasses that of the shit i took earlier today. or just kill yourself, that would take less time. either way, it's win-win for the rest of the world.


union_tumbleweed (November 28, 2002)

Audioslave blows. I heard about three songs before I wanted to wretch. what is so great about a mediocre band recycling the sound of their last record, with some aging rock icon trying to relive his glory days on vocals? Rage got rid of their political message, Cornell got rid of the band that made him sound halfway decent. Don't buy this record.

Anonymous (November 28, 2002)

Lets get a few things stright....

THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS GRUNGE! It was a buzz word FM radio and MTV created when Nirvana got big. Soundgargen was awesome! They were not grunge they played rock music, if anything hard rock, I guess.

Another thing, Rage Against the Machine was terrible in their day. Lets be politcal and against the "system" yet we release records on the biggest record label of them all (epic/Sony). Bullshit!

Because this band is 3/4 Rage, its sucks. Chris Cornell rules, Soundgarden was the best band to come out of Seattle and its too bad Chris lowered himself to join and sing for these idiots. I hope this act is short lived.

Long live Soundgarden!!!

Anonymous (November 28, 2002)

There comes a time for everything ended to move on and this is no exception. Audioslave can never make up for the energic feeling of RATM nor the melodic grungie Soundgarden. Audioslave is suck if you compare with the previous music the members have done but let's face it, theese guys did the BEST fucking thing they could. They started over not fearing about what people would think of their new style.
If you're gonna give audioslave a chance, do not compare them with s-garden or ratm, see them as a completely new band.
And you'll WILL learn that their a great band with great songs.

To all you people that critize the members for moving on,
you should listen to the backstreet boys, westlife or Ronan Keating..
There's the people that never change , and ask yourselves again now.
Is it really that bad that Chris, Tim, Tom and Brad move on and made record that the want to tour with and spread around the world..
Ask yoursleves that, cuz you people give me the creeps..
Thanks all..

bush better than nirvana?! hahahahahaha! I like Bush, but Nirvana?! they were one of the few good things about mainstream music. I mean there were other great bands that had VERY breif and undernoted mainstream success, bands better than Nirvana ( i won't get into naming which bands, since i know people on this site like to bash others opinions), but the truth is that Nirvana were the only ones to TRUELY leave a mark, no a scar, in the mainstream. Too bad it has since diminished.

Ok, now I know you definately do this on purpose. No one can possibly take your last comment seriously.

if you listen closely to the songs, they sound just like guitar riffs from old rage songs. Actualy, most of the cd has that sound to me. I couldnt get into cornell at all. Maybe, because i never liked soundgarden. doesnt really matter.

the melvins are more of a really slow metal band than a grunge band. they've got some good stuff but i would never call em the best.

i've never heard anything by tad.

mudhoney would have to be one of the best grunge bands i've ever heard. jesus, those guys rock hard.

and of course you've got nirvana. that's a given.

This is the most unoriginal band i've heard in a while.
You'd expect something groundbreaking by mixing Cornell's voice with RATM's musicians but what you get is
RATM songs with Cornell singing instead of Zack.
I didn't even listen to the whole album.
The best part was the guitar solo in track #5.
I'll stick to my RATM cds.

I love how the reviewer says that bunch of songs blend together and doesn't comment on them. then he goes on to say that the album "rocks more than anything." if the songs all sound the same it can't really rock that hard. read a good review of this record: http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/record-reviews/a/audioslave/audiosl ave.shtml

Out of all the grunge/radio rock bands, Soundgarden and Rage were the best. Audioslave sounds just a little bit forced. Its ok but forced on. And for one I think the name was terrible. Maybe they should have called the band Rage Against The Garden or something.

I've gotta say that, like many others, I loved Rage and I liked Soundgarden but it just doesn't come together. The video for Cochise is pretty much an 80's hair video (I mean how many fireworks does one non-Metallica band need?)
The real disappointment is the lack of change in either party. I loved Rage's grooves and feel, and it's there. I enjoyed Cornell's vocals, and they're present as well. But that WAS a couple of years ago for both. This isn't one of those dream projects where I've always wanted to hear them in their old forms together. I wanted to see some change and there really wasn't any.
Maybe when I listen to the rest of the album (I've only heard about 4 tracks), I'll be surprised.

i am kinda getting the feeling that everyone is just going off of what they think about 'conchise' because i have listened to it all and although some sounds like rage a good majority of the cd doesn't. opinions are okay, that is the point of posting, but at least have an educated response.

Audioslave fucking bites ass. RATM was an awesome band, especially their first 2 albums. But Chris Cornell just does NOT suit their music. The guys from Rage still play Rage-sounding stuff while Cornell pretty much sings like he's in Soundgarden again. They were both great bands, but together they blow. Tom & the gang need a rapper to front their music, it was just meant to be that way.

Soundgarden was great, and so was Chris's voice, THEN. But Audioslave suck. "Cochise" sucks.

To blame Rage, who are great, for shitty rock/rap bands is like blaming Nirvana for the slew of crappy psuedo grunge bands that followed them (Bush, Im looking in your direction)or to blame Black Sabbath for shitty metal bands. Its not Rage's fault that Fatty Durst came along and tried to bite their sound.

jonbonbandersnatch (November 26, 2002)

to the guy who said "If I ever form a band, I'm gonna tell people straight up before the concert....if you're racist, if you're into facism, if you're into censroship......you're not welcome here."

so you'd much prefer to surround yourself with people who think the same way you do and talk about racism etc with no worries about the certainty that you you're just wasting your time?

preaching to the converted for social change. if that doesn't spell progress, then i dont know what does.

do you even realize that your exclusion of these people could be considered fascist? at least, your hypocrisy is not lost on everyone.

Face it people, rage were the most overrated piece of rap-rock shit ever. Okay in (very) small doses but impossibly tedious to listen to for more than about 45 seconds. And I can never forgive them for the bullshit rap-metal scene they helped bring about. Without Rage chances are Fred Durst wouldn't be famous. Therefore a world without Rage would be a better world.

This album has no anger. It still has the stupid noises though HOO-RAY. I like Cochise but most of the other stuff (i know Audioslave changes it up a bit) is too similar. Same problem RATM had really. Just putting guitar beeps over the same riff doesn't really make a new song. Mudhoney was the best grunge band. Soundgarden were also really good. Better than this band.

I would like to congratulate sickboi on being such a nice fella.

OK.....here goes the "we don't like the fans so we'll hate the music" shit. You people are fucking retards. Yoiu do the same thing to Pennywise. I liked RATM years ago, before idiots came to the show. It makes me wonder, why someone who is the EXACT opposite of what Zach is saying would come to one of their shows. An idiot moron I used to work with used to listen to rage.....this guy was a racist, stupid pig who was Mr. "USA" and lived with his parents. I thought it was fucking hilarious. If I ever form a band, I'm gonna tell people straight up before the concert....if you're racist, if you're into facism, if you're into censroship......you're not welcome here.

evildeadalive-don't generalize dude. i love rage and the last time i checked, no girl has ever pressed charges on me for raping her. i know that while a lot of jock assholes listened to rage as an excuse to fuck the shit out of people at concerts, the asshole factor (if that makes any sense) among rage fans was far less than say fans of limp bizkit or korn. rage fans were def much more socially/politically conscious and not into the whole tough guy image.

evildeadalive (November 26, 2002)

Also (sorry to comment over and over) I don't think of myself as being high and mighty, I actually have a few friends who like RATM, and don't hold it against them. I just personally do not like them... at all. (ok, and maybe I do make fun of them a little, or a lot... god I hate Rage..)

evildeadalive (November 26, 2002)

Oh yeah, and as for people actually taking their ideas to heart in the beginning; I was there, and they didn't. Was 'Killing In The Name Of' not their first single? (if not, then it was their 2nd or 3rd...it was a long time ago..)

evildeadalive (November 26, 2002)

My arguement did come off a little harsh I will admit. Most of my hatred does come from the fans and not actually the band, but I actually don't really like the music either. It bores me, and just seems to be geared at the wrong audience, as I said. I will admit to liking their Minor Threat cover, and some of Zachs older hardcore stuff though.

Anonymous (November 26, 2002)

hey dipshit underneath me:

rage came to an end because their message wasn't doing any good anymore. when they started, the people listening actually took their ideas to heart. but lately, like you said, it was just a bunch of dumbass kids who like to wear backwards new york yankess hats. don't blame rage for the fans they didn't want.

and i like Rage because i dont give 2 shits about their jock rock fans. you obviously can only like a band if the rest of their fans are as high and mighty as you are. that is a fucking shame.

evildeadalive (November 26, 2002)

How many of you people who actually like Rage have ever been to a bar? It's kind of hard not to like them? (as said by the reviewer) Give me a fucking break. I have never hated a band more until now.(Audioslave fucking suck) For the life of me I cannot figure out why anyone with decent taste in music would appriciate them at all. They write polically charged lyrics, but gear them at fucking meatheads who yell out "Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me!" in the bar, and then go kick the shit out of some guy for bumping into them. Fucking pathetic. Rage is music for jock rocking date rapers. Their core audience is people who think they have good lyrics, but really coundn't give a shit what he's (Zach) saying half the time. Argh... forgive me if I'm not making sense, I just can't fucking fathom how you people can like a band that is so popular with the whole fucking Limp Bizkit, Puddle of Shitt crowd. And don't give me this "You should listen to their first record" crap. That was their worst album of all.

Anonymous (November 26, 2002)

does wuss have ANY friends? Or does he have nothing better to do than sit around and disagree with everybody? Does anyone really expect Audioslave to be as good as rage or soundgarden? Hope not, those bands will go down in history, these guys will make a lot of money, and will keep these former superstars in the limelight for that much longer, and without questioning the credibility of their respective well-respected projects. Decent CD, but no killin in the name, or jesus christ pose here.

Rage kicked ass wuss. perhaps you never heard their first album but it was incredible. the second was really good but not as good... the third was kinda trash but had a few goodies on it. That cover cd, the one with covers of punk and rap songs... definitley good. Rage was anything but terrible. Youre right Soundgarden was good though.-BostonMusicGuy

WussEmoRock (November 26, 2002)
