iTunes Editors' Notes

The first Audioslave album exceeded all expectations because, well, it was exactly what people expected: Rage plus Cornell, a simple (yet powerhouse) formula. Revelations is the sound of Audioslave coming into its own, fleshing out the music with brawny, funky rhythms and quieter melodic hooks. Cuts like “One and the Same” and “Jewel of the Summertime,” with slashing riffs and high-octane vocals, are sure to please fans of the heavier “old” Audioslave. Yet, Revelations also finds them branching out to great effect: "Original Fire,” for example, feels like a soul rave-up beefed up with chunky guitar licks and pummeling rhythms. “Broken City” is also heavy on the funk, going so far as to add call-and-response vocals. Still, their strong suit remains a mastery of ebb and flow; many of the most memorable tracks (“Shape of Things to Come,” “Sound of a Gun,” and “Moth,” to name a few) deftly balance roaring rock bombast with mellow, introspective passages. Not every idea works, and many fans may forever miss the full-speed-ahead approach of the debut, but there’s certainly plenty to enjoy here.

Customer Reviews

Another Great Album to ad to my collection

This band always amazes me with their innovative creative music as the other guy said if there were more stars.... Listening to the album now and it's awesome, what I like about this the most is the bass licks because I am a bass player myself and I can appreciate what Tim does on bass. The album is a great compliment to their previous album and as a whole this is album is awsome buy it

Dig that early 90's Alternative Rock Sound

Audioslaves latest offering harkens back to the early 90's Soundgarden and Pearljam (ie Seattle scene) sounds of guitar/rock anthems and a soulfull blues attitude to the music. It's a new approach for Audioslave and one that will inevitably pay off, especially with the Gen X'ers love for alternative music.

Keeps Getting Better

On 1st listen it sounded like they had gone all dad music on us, but persevere my friends as this album is the most rewarding yet and forget that review that says it slows after the 1st six songs, 'Moth' which is the last track is the best by far, fantastic vocals by Cornell. Original Fire sounded great when i first heard it, but now on hearing the whole album it sounds like an out of date pop song, its catchy alright-but no substance, 'Jewel of the Summertime', 'Revelations' and Nothing left to say but Goodbye' are classics. True, 'Cochise', 'Show me how to live', 'What you are', 'Your time has come', 'Drown me slowly' are all hard rock classics, not really matched here - they are surpassed, if you dont believe me just listen to the final track 'Moth', ill rave about it all night, its hard, its soft, its melodic, its screaming rock modern classic!!!

Biography

When Zack de la Rocha left Rage Against the Machine in October 2000, the band's future was put into question. Within months rumors flew that ex-Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell would replace de la Rocha. And gossip fueled truth, for Cornell joined the rest of Rage in the studio in May 2001. The mix was great and a musical bond was in the making: Cornell, Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk, and Tom Morello spent the next year writing and recording. By spring 2002, the foursome were no longer going by the...
