Soundgarden's Superunknown Extras
Karl Klun | Sacramento, CA | 07/05/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A generous four stars for this good EP. Superunknown is Soundgarden's magnum opus and is perhaps the greatest album from the "post-grunge" era. Soundgarden were definitely inspired by Black Sabbath, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, etc. and brought the best of these influences to the core of their songs. On this EP, "Superunknown" and "Fell On Black Days" are similar to the album versions. "Jerry Garcia's Finger" is trippy enough and funny for a couple of spins. This one is worth buying for "She Likes Surprises" from the International LP version and the excellent stripped-down acoustic version of "Like Suicide". If you like Chris Cornell singing and strumming on "Like Suicide", check out his rendition of "Black Hole Sun" on Audislave's DVD "Live in Cuba"."

"This single, which serves as the soundtrack to the CD-ROM Alive in the Superunknown (now out of print and difficult to track down), is 25 minutes of rock heaven. Seriously. Minute for minute, its just as good as Superunknown. The title track, "Superunknown", is a revelation, one of my favorite songs off of Superunknown. Not only that, but its nice to have a version that doesn't fade straight into "Head Down", which is nice when assembling a comp CD...hehe. The rest of the CD is a treat for any Soundgarden fan. You get the outstanding video version of "Fell On Black Days", which is even better than the album version-seriously. "She Likes Surprises" is from the international version of Superunknown, and is a nice treat. Its a rocking tune with more great riffs that didn't really fit on Superunknown. Nevertheless, its Soundgarden at their best; complex guitar work, Chris Cornell vascillating between a croon and a scream, and Kim Thayil soloing away. The acoustic version of "Like Suicide" is wonderful...beautiful even. This rendition is Chris Cornell only, singing and playing his 12-string acoustic guitar. It adds an added dimension to the already great studio version, and presents a fragility rarely found in Soundgarden's music. The final track, "Jerry Garcia's Finger", is a spacey instrumental derived from a longer jam (which is split up into numerous parts on the CD-ROM). Great may take awhile to sink in, but the song is among the most remarkable Soundgarden ever recorded.Buy this CD while you still can; you will not regret it."
Great companion to superunknown

"Soundgarden's superunknown stands out as one of the best albums of the 1990s. The Superunknown single is a great companion to superunknown mainly because it contains songs that should have been contained on superunkown such as she likes suprises available on the international version of superunkown and the acoustic version of like suicide. There is also the video version of fell on black days and jerry garcia's fingers which are also good."
