iTunes Review

Before Badmotorfinger, Soundgarden was just another mauling grunge band, capable of playing post-Led Zeppelin style rock at excessive decibels as well as any other band. But Badmotorfinger changed all that as the band renewed its sense of focus and precision. They still offer a paint-peeling, hard-rock assault, but this time the band's songs and over-amped guitars roared with accessibility. Chris Cornell's soaring, rock-star vocals sends the band's new tunes into the realm of the sublime. From this point on, Soundgarden would reside alongside Nirvana and Pearl Jam as grunge's biggest bands. Key tracks: "Rusty Cage," "Outshined," and Jesus Christ Pose"

Customer Reviews

This album cannot be topped.

This was the album that got me into heavy music. I heard "Outshined" one day on college radio and was like "OK, now this is how music should be." People should stand outside record stores with a stack of CD-Rs with Badmotorfinger on them and just hand them out to folks as they walk in. Kim Thayil is a guitar god, Matt Cameron drums like a mad man, Chris Cornell makes hundreds of kids quit chorus, and Ben Shepherd loosens your bowels with his bass. Buy this album. Just do it, every song is perfect. And it only gets better with age.

Some of you guys crack me up!

Why do you have to slam Nirvana and Pearl Jam? All of the bands from this era are great in their own right. Dirt is the best album by far. Chris Cornell has the best voice. Nirvana broke the scene and Pearl Jam produced an excellent album. Enjoy it all!

Soundgarden made a place for heavy metal in alternative rock. Their fellow Seattle rockers Green River may have spearheaded the grunge sound, but they relied on noise rock in the vein of the Stooges. Similarly, Jane's Addiction were too fascinated with prog rock and performance art to appeal to a wide array of metal fans. Soundgarden, however, developed directly out of the grandiose blues-rock of Led Zeppelin and the sludgy, slow riffs of Black Sabbath. Which isn't to say they were a straight-ahead...
