jesus Christ. Now that's the album I should've been listening to this past week.....his last. That song is heavy shit. Sounds like he's contemplating it but at the same time is unsure of himself.

I haven't heard this album since its release. Some of these song titles are dark. Before We Disappear, Through the Window, Our Time in the Universe.

All these eyes
Looking On
Make me blind and put me down
And the noise just drowns me out


Man....workaholic or not....the guy needed a break. he didn't get one and nobody talked him down.....that part of the song sounds like his marriage may have been disintegrating. We'll never know as that part of his life will be portayed as bliss now that her and his in laws run the show.

They're doing their job and his memory so well....first round was shitting on Eddie Vedder.

Tomorrow's soundtrack will be Higher Truth. Thanks for pointing out the lyrics of that song. Its an eye opener for sure.

That entire album has become way darker for me now. For me Higher Truth is tied with Euphoria Morning. Both albums are just incredible for different reasons.

Even the lead single "Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart." Like no matter what he did that darkness always came back. Or "Circling," "circling, around the drain, hope that I'll make it home, I've never felt, so far away, dark is the heart that wanders."

I'm not sure it will ever make sense any other way now.

I've been in total shock over this. When I saw it that next morning I thought it had to be a fucking joke. There's no way Chris would kill himself after all he'd been through and having seemingly made it through.

I've been listening to all of his work since it happened. One lyric in particular has stood out to me from Worried Moon. "If it all goes wrong, and I'm a heart without a home, maybe you can talk me down, from doing myself in." It seemed so much more innocent to me the other times I heard it. But ever since I have really heard the darkness underlying 90% of his stuff.

"I've got a long way to go, I'll be off in the morning, I hope but I don't know."

RIP.

I really can't believe this is happening. At least 3 members are confirmed now. I think we'd all like to know why Axl backed out of the Kimmel appearance. But it doesn't appear the reunion is off. I think there's quite a few out there that won't believe it until they walk on stage together.

Great to see you again.  9 

2016 shaping up to be a great year. GNR reunion and Soundgarden album on tap.  3

I tried sending you a PM a long time ago when the studio version of Kristi was released. You were the first person I thought of. Haha. But your inbox was full... Hope you're doing well!

2016 is shaping up to be a great year!

Soundgarden 'Storm' Back With First New Song in Two Years


The shrieking, spooky track arrives just in time for Halloween





After making an appearance at Neil Young's annual Bridge School Benefit this weekend, Soundgarden quietly dropped a new single last night. The track is called "Storm," and according to Stereogum, it's their first new song since 2012's reunion project, King Animal.

The shrieking, anxiety-laden track arrives just in time for Halloween, with Chris Cornell drawling methodically on the disheartening opening lyrics: "The storm has weakened minds of steel." No word yet on whether "Storm" will appear on a new Soundgarden album yet, but stream it below now.

Have you heard Kristi yet?  I remember you turning me on to it back in the day.  Hearing it today made me remember that horrible quality live version I have sitting around on the hard drive somewhere.

Just finished listening to the album and I have to say it`s as mediocre as it can get while it has some highlights, overall as a cohesive album. it`s weak, old, tired, rehashed mashup of Guns N`Roses, AC/DC, Metallica and Pantera. This isn`t the album I will ever consider to give a second listen and sure as hell can`t be arsed to review it track by track.This band should go out of their comfort zone and try to evolve their sound, update it, experiment bit. Right at the bottom of their discography, one of their worst. They peaked with City of Evil and self tittled it`s been downhill since. Two stars.

Agreed.  To me it sounded bland.  It's not an album that I want to go back and re-listen to.  City of Evil seemed to be their peak.  Self-titled was pretty good, Nightmare had a couple good tracks on it.  But they've seemed to go downhill.

They still put on one hell of a live show however.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to the leaks? I'd love to hear them.

I've been coming here less and less because nothing seems to happen, and then all of a sudden there are a few leaks that I missed.

scott slaughters Chester.... STP full of shit.. his range is still amazing

When he's focused and sober he is a great singer.  If only he could be like that every time on stage.

From hearing the details of both sides, it seems like he does have good grounds for a lawsuit as well.  They should have gone with a different name like they've done in the past.  Instead they get greedy and keep the STP name because it's a bigger draw.  But AoA and Talk Show were the band from STP with a different singer, each failed.  So who is the biggest draw in the band? Scott solo seems to do better than what TS or AoA did.

Yeah, but STP have always been those four guys. It's not as though Scott had another band called STP with different members and they joined after.

And by that same logic they shouldn't be allowed to call themselves STP without Scott, as Chester joined the party 20 some years late.

Most reactions towards them seem to be negative so far.  I say good.  I'd rather get no STP music than "STP with Chester" music.  Please don't tarnish the legacy. 

Also, I can't be the only one that finds it ironic that Chester receives an award for his commitment to helping musicians overcome addiction... and then comes out and plays as the new lead singer of STP, replacing one of the biggest addicts of the 90's.  So he helps addicts, just not Scott, because well, STP are his FAVORITE band and he'd love to be their singer, so fuck Scott and stuff.

Listened to Out Of Time and its Fucking TERRIBLE

THANK YOU!  Someone around here has some sense.

Out of Time is not an STP song, period.  It sounds more like Talk Show or Army of Anyone (both sub-par bands in comparison to STP).  It sounds bland and uninspired compared to their other stuff. 

Like it or not, Scott was a huge part of STP.  He wrote the melodies and lyrics to (if I'm not mistaken) every song they ever released.  He was a huge part of their music.  He's also the most well known and recognizable person in the band. 

Had they chose to change their name and form a band with Chester, I would have supported it even though I don't like the singer, like I did with Army of Anyone.  But to call themselves STP, it's a disgrace to their fans. 

A lot of people are bringing up the GNR thing and calling anyone a hypocrite who can't support them getting a new singer and calling themselves STP.  But these people are missing one very important detail.  So it's worked for Van Halen, and Black Sabbath, and for GNR and a lot of people are fine with those bands now.  But NONE of those bands spent 20 years solidifying their legacy with the same 4 people in the band, only to turn around and fire the most well known person in the band and hire another singer and try to call themselves the same thing.  Every other band did a shakeup like that much earlier in their career.  That is a very important distinction. 

And for them to now sue him and say that he can't call himself a former member of STP or play any of their songs live?  Fuck them.  They didn't pull this shit any other time that he or even VR played STP songs live, but now suddenly they get money hungry and want to carry on with someone else, NOW it's not okay for him to play songs he helped write live.  I will not be supporting this band.
