Synopsis

Amazon.com
Soundgarden combined the epic grandstanding of Led Zeppelin with the grunge buzz of Blue Cheer and the psychedelic undertones of the Butthole Surfers to create some of the definitive hard rock of the 1990s. This collection of what can loosely be defined as "hits" (hard rock isn't noted for its singles action) briefly sweeps over the indie years with SubPop and SST, placing emphasis on the band's successful A&M years. Singer Chris Cornell's histrionic wails grabbed the bulk of the attention, but the band's true power rested with the drumming of Matt Cameron and the twin guitar attack of Cornell and Kim Thayil. One need only listen to "Fell on Black Days" or "Blow Up the Outside World" to understand that Soundgarden's complex riffs and superb dynamics were its great strengths. --Rob O'Connor

Excellent collection, crappy Amazon product description

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Way to go Amazon. This is the worst product description you've done for a CD... no song list. Brilliant. I'd think that a list of the songs on the CD is somewhat important, wouldn't you think? Apparently not. Looks like I'll be buying this through another store. Seeya."
