Today I review Soundgarden's Ultramega Ok (1988) (Grunge, Alternative Metal, Stoner Rock) in honor of the death of frontman Chris Cornell.



I haven't listened to this album since I was a teenager, but I remember feeling it wasn't very good.

Flower - This is so much more punk than Soundgrden's later stuff.

All Your Lies - Damn good shit.

665 - This song is very weird. I love it! Lol

Beyond the Wheel - Oh shit that guitar! This is awesome!

667 - These numbered track interludes are weird and awesome.

Mood for Trouble - This is all so much faster than I remember it being. Feels a lot more punky. I guess you can say you can hear the Soundgarden's influences a lot more in this album.

Circle of Power - Fuck this is badass!

He Didn't -

Smokestack Lightning - This song is more of they'd become but more bluesy.

Nazi Driver - Hey, it's a song about Batlord... Badass song though.

Head injury - More of that punky feel.

Incessant Feel - I dig.

One Minute of Silence - Fucking John Cage wannabes.

Final Thoughts: I remember the production on this being so bad. I'm going to assume the version on Spotify is a remastered version. If so, the album is absolute badassery. The only real issue I have is the I want to be John Cage track.

☆☆☆☆1/2

Best of the Super Juniors 24 is Currently happening.


Riccochet vs. Ospreay II exceeded expectations. I think those two are two of the best high flyers in all of Pro wrestling.

Dragon Lee vs. Hiromu Takahashi was an amazing main event for day 1.

Marty Scurll continues to impress in the event as well.

I also have no idea who's going to win the event. Every wrestler feels like a probability.

Today's terrible review is Soundgarden's Louder Than Love (1989) (Grunge, Alternative Metal, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal)



You can still hear the punk influence all over Soundgarden in this album. But you can also hear the sound they would become famous for taking shape. Ultramega Ok had bit of a punk vibe while this album seems to be more of a Alternative grunge album.

I don't have really anything bad to say about the album. The production could use some work, but it doesn't ruin the music or anything. Cornell seems to have improved as a singer, he's really bringing out that monstrous voice that'd become a staple of his later music.

It's time for another shitty review with 1blankmind.

Today's review is Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger (1991) (Grunge, Alternative Metal, Heavy Metal)



So this album is generally considered the one that gave Soundgarden their major breakthrough success. The sound that Soundgarden became known for really comes into fruition here.

While this is a fantastic album it's not their best. Maybe second best. The albums production is a massive step up from their last two records. There are no songs I would call weak, nothing I'd call bad. All good shit.

So, I was going to write a review for Superunknown, but then I decided that I didn't want to write a long thing of me gushing over my favorite album. So I thought I'd tell the story of this albums importance to me in high school.

I was 16 and just began to discover grunge. I first heard Nirvana from a compilation album my parents had and was blown away by it.



That's the Nirvana greatest hits that had You Know You're Right.

Since I was a teenager and probably the angstiest teen to ever angst I had to dive deeper. So I discovered Pearl Jam's Ten, Alice 'n' Chains' Dirt, Stone Temple Pilots' Core and the best album from Soundgarden. Their Superunknown.

Spoiler for big cover:


Initially, I hated the album... I wasn't the biggest fan of Cornell's vocals. It took me awhile to come and appreciate the album for the genius it was.

Now it's one of my all time favorite albums.
