Talking Chris Cornell

Okay, I think it's time for an Soundgarden vs. Audioslave vs. Solo Albums (Euphoria Morning, Carry On and soon to be released Scream)

Personally, while I love the rock and the classics we see set forth by his two earlier bands--Be Yourself, toybox, outshined, like a stone--I could go on and on with all my favorites, I have to say that when I hear his solo albums I feel like he has more different influences that come out--I personally love the blues theme in When I'm Down, I love Can't change me I love the Beatles influence I hear in Finally Forever (on Carry On).

I have heard Long Gone from the Scream album that will be released soon, but I plan on hearing more of his music from that live at a concert or the Projekt Revolution tour, before being able to actually study the influences.

What do you guys think?

Temple of the Dog is when he developed into a great singer. I prefer his early 90's stuff.

I think i can safely say the majority of his Solo songs are complete regurgitated garbage.

Soundgarden was a wonderful band with new ideas.

Audioslave was very good. There self titled album is among my favorites, with every song being as strong as the next. Unfortanitly each album kind of went downhill when they didn't change anything about themselves.

Definitely Soundgarden but you could probably guess I would pick them anyway.
A true rock star knows how to please a crowd with just one stroke of his instrument.

I personally prefer him in Temple of the Dog. I loved Soundgarden but grew bored of them after a while, same thing with Audioslave and the solo albums (though I haven't heard this latest venture).

The Temple of the Dog album is the only one I can still listen to all the way through without skipping anything, and I thought his voice was just great. That's really the main reason I still listen to that album.

Soundgarden comes in second, then Audioslave and then him solo.

I like most of what Chris has done, so far. I loved Soundgarden, TOTD, Audioslave & his solo efforts. His music changes & I guess that's what I love the most about him. He never bores me. Can't wait to see him next month on the PR/LP tour. Can't wait to hear the new tunes live!

Soundgarden is the highest point in Chris Cornell's career. With hits like Black Hole Sun, Rusty Cage, Outshined, and Spoonman you just can't go wrong with Soundgarden. Temple of the Dog was just starting point for Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder's career. When he joined the remaining members of Rage Against the Machine and made their first Audioslave album I thought it was pretty good. Cochise, Like a Stone, and Show Me How to Live were all great tracks from that album. Then Out of Exile came out and it was alright. The only track I really liked was Doesn't Remind Me. I think Revelations was a very poor album. I really haven't heard any of his solo stuff so I really can't judge that. I think he's gettin' really mainstream now because I heard he's working with Timbaland. I hope he doesn't go all mainstream pop and sell out. I would be very disappointed.
