EDITORS’ NOTES

Audioslave hammered the muscle and musicianship of Rage Against the Machine and Soundgarden into a shape that was new yet still recognizable. On their 2002 debut, Chris Cornell's Beatles-derived sense of melody and sky-shaking vocal prowess and Tom Morello's furiously rhythmic guitar assault blended perfectly on the riff blasters "Cochise" and "Show Me How to Live." But it was Audioslave's graceful touch with cinematic, slow-building ballads such as "Shadow on the Sun" and "Like a Stone" that felt like new ground for all parties involved.

Audioslave At Their Heaviest

This was an awesome debut album from an awesome band. This album like all Audioslave albums flows really well as a whole. What makes it stand out the most from their other two studio albums is how much heavier it is, showcased in songs such as "Cochise", "Show Me How to Live", and "Light My Way". That's not to say that it doesn't have excellent soft songs and ballads, with songs like "Like A Stone", "I Am The Highway", and "Getaway Car" which has an awesome bluesy solo which isn't something most are used to hearing from Tom Morello. I definitely recommend this album, but if you buy it from Itunes make sure to buy the $10 version, I'm not really sure why they have three versions of this album.

The Album to End All Albums

Audioslave may be disbanded now (big mistake Cornell) but this is still my favorite album. Of my 13 five star songs coming from my entire music library, 5 come from this album. Songs Like Like A Stone and What You Are, to me, are all that music needs to be. Amazing lyrics, guitar, bass, and drums. All aspects of the songs in this album contribute to its greatness making it something greater than the sum of its parts. Unilike a lot of new rock out there, Audioslave contains bandmembers that are actually talented. Every person in this band is a seasoned verteran of the music buisness and is great at what they do.I could easily listen to this album for the rest of my life. If you like Rage Against the Machine, Foo Fighters, or any other REAL rock or alternative then you will love this album.
