EDITORS’ NOTES

The Seattle supergroup, remastered and expanded. In Eddie Vedder and Chris Cornell, Temple of the Dog boasted two of the most high-velocity vocalists of the ‘90s, but strong songwriting was the project’s foundation. A selection of unreleased demos reinforces the underlying feeling that this might be grunge’s first and only soul album.

What This Album Really IS:

bluedemon218,

This is the GREATEST VOCAL ALBUM peroid. Say Hello 2 Heaven is Chris Cornell's greatest vocal performance to date still. Chris Cornell is one of the greatest male rock & hard rock vocalist of all time; he is up there with Robert Plant, Steve Perry, Freddie Mercury, & Ian Gillian. And he is in my top 3 favorite. His early work here and with Soundgarden is so Robert Plant like, espeically those bashee wails he does in Say Hello 2 Heaven, towards the end of Hunger Strike & Call Me A Dog. All 3 songs are my favorite. This album is a must buy like the reviewers here have said and it is what gave us Pearl Jam its a combination of Soundgarden & Mother Love Bone b4 Pearl Jam was founded.

Sounds of the nineties return

Return of the grunge,

I remember listening to grunge/ alternative music in high school in the early 90's. This brings it all back and nothing is more enjoyable than Cornells voice. My hope is a bigger tour and newer music.

About Temple of the Dog

Temple of the Dog was a one-album project conceived in 1990. The purpose of Temple of the Dog was to pay tribute to the late Andrew Wood, the lead singer of Mother Love Bone, who died of a heroin overdose in 1990. Following his death, Mother Love Bone broke up, but Wood's bandmates Jeff Ament (bass) and Stone Gossard (guitar) decided to continue working together. Before Ament and Gossard formed a new band, they assembled Temple of the Dog, recruiting Chris Cornell (vocals) and Matt Cameron (drums) from Soundgarden to form the core of the group. Temple of the Dog also featured contributions from then-unknown vocalist Eddie Vedder and guitarist Mike McCready.

Temple of the Dog recorded their eponymous album in 1990, releasing it at the end of the year on A&M Records. The album received positive reviews upon its release, but didn't chart until the summer of 1992, when Pearl Jam -- a band Ament, Gossard, Vedder, McCready, and drummer Dave Krusen formed in late 1990 after the completion of the Temple of the Dog album -- had a Top Ten album with their debut record, Ten. Following the success of Ten, A&M re-released "Hunger Strike" -- a duet between Vedder and Cornell -- as a video and single, and the album quickly scaled the charts, reaching the Top Ten and going platinum before the end of 1992.

Over the next two decades, Temple of the Dog remained a one-off, although Chris Cornell occasionally joined Pearl Jam on-stage to perform "Hunger Strike." When the Temple of the Dog album reached its 25th anniversary in 2016, the band reissued it in a double-disc deluxe edition and embarked on their first-ever tour. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
