Did you know that Soundgarden’s deubt LP, simply titled Ultramega OK, didn’t have any hit singles? Did you know that, Rusty?
It’s hard to choose a favorite among so many great tracks, but “Smokestack Lightening” is one of the best, most powerful songs ever written about self-preservation, dignity. Its universal message crosses all boundaries and instills one with the hope that it’s not too late to better ourselves. Since, Rusty, it’s impossible in this world we live in to empathize with others, we can always empathize with ourselves. It’s an important message, crucial really. And it’s beautifully stated on the album.
Duh, tons of great albums didnt have hit singles imo.Look at the Grateful Dead…
Its been a problem for years. RIP Jerry Wick
Do you like Chris Cornell? I’ve been a big Soundgarden fan ever since the release of their 1991 album, Badmotorfinger. Before that, I really didn’t understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Badmotorfinger where Chris Cornell’s presence became more apparent. I think Black Hole Sun was the group’s undisputed masterpiece. It’s an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Thayil, Yamamoto and Cornell. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Take the lyrics to Spoonman. In this song, Chris Cornell addresses the problems of abusive political authority. Spoonman is the most moving rock song of the 1990s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I’ve heard in rock. Chris Cornell’s solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Can’t Change Me and Moonchild. But I also think Chris Cornell works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. Black Hole Sun is a great, great song, a personal favorite.
