"No one knows what intelligent life is."
Mysterious Wrench
It would be so easy for a band, fifteen years between albums, to lose all their purpose, cohesion and meaning. Soundgarden have managed to retain all three, and have delivered a wealth of terrific material. Concise, heavy riffing and time signature playfulness return here, and their pre-grunge quasi-psychedelia makes welcome cameos throughout this ambitious album.

C. Cornell's vocal delivery seems more grounded than ever, all while soaring towards pitch altitudes last visited during Bush Snr's administration. K. Thayil's pull-off and hammer-on riffing has an all new context, and the catchy, condensed licks are real features of the album (again, recalling BadMotorFinger's greater moments).

While we've heard heavier phrases from the band, there is a synergy here that was never captured on previous releases (and eras). The band are certainly in-step with one another, and it is very easy to take M. Cameron's exquisite and technically astounding drumming for granted. This alone is a new level of greatness for the band. B. Shepherd again, occupies the regions between rhythmic and melodic purpose; visiting the lower registers of his instrument more than I've ever noticed. (Though the trademark tenor-range riffing and runs return where required).

Consistency is where the band lives - we see a real follow-through from the opening to the closing, and we never feel that we're experimenting along with the band (as Superunknown tended to do) - we feel like they have given us the best they have, in the best manner they can give it. And who can ask for anything more?
