Soundgarden's New Album, King Animal, $3.99 MP3 Download
 
65535 Attachment(s)
Grunge pioneer Soungarden's first full album in 16 years was released today, and Amazon.com is offering the full 13 track MP3 download for $3.99:

http://www.amazon.com/King-Animal...3&sr=301-1

This price is almost certainly temporary, possibly today only. If you listened to rock radio in the 1990s, you know some Soundgarden songs. If you didn't, think of Pearl Jam with hints of Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, and Stone Temple Pilots. If it sounds like Audioslave, it's because Soundgarden's lead singer went on to form Audioslave after Soundgarden disbanded in the 90s. Obviously, he's back with Soundgarden now.

The entire "classic" Soundgarden lineup is intact. They even got their drummer back, who joined Pearl Jam after Soundgarden broke up and has been with Pearl Jam ever since (I think he's in both bands simultaneously).

In the middle of my first listen through. So far I'd say the sound is most reminiscent of the Superunknown album, but with a little more polish and sharper less blurry vocals and instrumentation on some pieces. It's still grunge, but I they make a nod toward modern music as well. I'd neither say they seem mired in the past or abandoned their classic sound. It's their classic sound with a few modern tweaks that they don't go overboard on.

Thanks. Will check it out.

havok019 11-13-2012 12:12 AM

This album is so good. I love that last song "Rowing"

RavenSEAL 11-13-2012 12:25 AM

fark, I can't pass this up for $4! Awesome!

manaknight 11-13-2012 12:28 AM

doesn't seem as heavy as i remember soundgarden. Might be rose coloured goggles but it feels more like an extension of down on the upside instead of heading back to the golden years of badmotorfinger or superunknown.

I guess i was hoping for more after so many years.

JoneVi 11-13-2012 12:39 AM

love King Animal very much, thanks OP

RavenSEAL 11-13-2012 02:21 AM

This needs to be Front Page ASAP, it's time for the world to remember what real music sounds like!

loca 11-13-2012 03:26 AM

Wow. Amazon was selling pre-order CD like $26 last month. $3.99 MP3 is awesome deal!!

beckaroony 11-13-2012 03:30 AM

Wow!
 
I can't believe how cheap this is!

raven70 11-13-2012 04:22 AM

It's not the Deluxe version missing 4 demos if that matters to you.

BanditKing 11-13-2012 04:36 AM

gobigblue312 11-13-2012 06:23 AM

$3.99 is a great price--album is okay. Superunknown and Down on the Upside are epic, my favorite albums from high school. Maybe King Animal will grow on my in time...listening to track Attrition right now and it has some real energy. At least they are touring again!

Staypuft 11-13-2012 06:24 AM

Purchased, thx OP

I've never really found anything bad about them when I've searched Google for reviews. My girlfriend and I have used them for well over a year now and haven't had any issues either.

snakecharmer 11-13-2012 07:29 AM

Ok, so this is seriously Euphoria Morning meets Down On The Upside. Bones of Birds is awesome!!! This is how modern rock music should sound.

jrummer 11-13-2012 07:42 AM

bought instantly..no questions asked. saw them open for faith no more in 1990. get out of my way...ha.

bostonlou 11-13-2012 07:42 AM

yay grunge ;)

wizard7926 11-13-2012 07:47 AM

I don't know about your local radio, but mine has played "Live to Rise" to death.

Admittedly, I wasn't really that excited about new Soundgarden in the first place, but has anyone else heard the song a million times already? :dontknow:

Yes and this new album does NOT sound like that garbage. Its obvious that they only did that for The Avengers soundtrack.

Side note indeed. How much is Toby Keith?

Might give it a listen on Spotify today. I switch the radio to the next station whenever that song comes on, lol.

jake.unc 11-13-2012 08:31 AM

In 4 two (one for by brother). Thanks OP!

cmac2728 11-13-2012 12:30 PM

I'm glad to see some new music from Soundgarden. I'm a big fan of everything they have put and expect this to be great also. Im looking forward to some new sounds.

grkiran 11-13-2012 03:05 PM

Too good to pass up for $4.

BumbleBees 11-14-2012 07:46 AM

Really good return. I like Blood on the valley floor, Bones of Birds, Taree, Black Saturday and Rowing. I couldn't really have asked for much more. The songs are great.
