Brilliant! Absolutley beautiful.
This is a great grunge album. Combine Pearl Jam and soundgarden and you get TOTD. I remember the 90's like yesterday. 90-96 was a period of time like no other. Now I feel like a dweeb still clad in flannel with a 2 ft long hairdoo. Were still out there though!! p.s. cant wait for new Pearl Jam album.Was this review helpful?

The Best of Both Worlds
I can't believe nobody's reviewed this! First off, this is a remarkable album, and if you don't own it, go out and get it now. This album would appeal to a wide audience, especially if you like Pearl Jam or Soundgarden. But there even if you like classic rock, which is my main musical focus, you should enjoy this, you can feel the Led Zeppelin influence, which is a very good thing. Well the history of this, is that this is a tribute to these musicians friend, the deceased Andrew Wood, lead singer of Mother Love Bone. Although his death was tragic, I think Andrew Wood would be happy to see his bandmates rising to such success (Pearl Jam). Wood's unfortunate death did two great things for music, gave us Pearl Jam, and Temple of the Dog. Basically, Temple of the Dog is what Pearl Jam would sound like with Chris Cornell in controll of the group, and Eddie singing background vocals. Now I am a big fan of both Eddie Vedder and Chris Cornell, and i think they are the two best frontment around today, but their musical styles are much different, and this is an experiment that produces astounding results. Cornell shines, and gives us a good glimpse into the musical territory he would later explore on his brilliant solo debut album "Euphoria Morning." This is not to say that Pearl Jam's most prominent member is just shoved to the side. Vedder even duets with Cornell, and this is his recording debut World meet Eddie Vedder, Eddie Vedder, world. Anyway, it would be great to produce a follow up (possibly a tribute to Layne Stayley??) and this album is a knockout from start to finish.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
