Screamby Chris Cornell
Scream is a seamless work, snaking its way through more than an hour of music without a single pause. Timbaland makes inventive use of Cornell’s soaring melodies and incisive lyrics, setting his intense vocal performances against expressive soundscapes and irresistible stutter-step beats. "Musically, this is the most ambitious thing I've been a part of. It's almost like a movie soundtrack," says Cornell. Scream showcases a seductive sound - dark, multi-layered and full of puzzles and surprises. With each successive play, more is revealed -- and the thrill factor deepens.

Everything about this I like.
As a hardcore soundgarden and audioslave fan, I was completely shocked at first listen. I think this might be a normal reaction by many fans. This album is a complete 180 from the norm, from what you would expect. However, you quickly come to the realization that when an artist is as talented and versatile as Cornell is, growth is only achieved by challenges and change. Unlike his first solo album, Scream is a home run. You will appreciate his ability to cross all genres - soul, R&B, rock and even techno. After 2nd and 3rd listen, these songs will stick in your head. It's a complete album and I can't stop listening to it. This work will easily be nominated for album of the year!
Hooray Mr. Cornell! This is a successful experiment! I was pleasantly surprised to hear the entire album, especially after all of the grunge-fan backlash. It is definitely different than anything the artist has done before, and I like it. I found myself moving to the beat as I sat at my computer and gave it a first listen, and it has grown on me even more. Make no mistake, this is Chris Cornell's rock-god voice! And it is teamed up with some grooving sounds. Thumbs up!
Chris has done it again. I applaud his vision to expand and grow with this exemplary disc. It flows effortlessly from beginning to end. I was skeptical before purchasing this CD, but was very pleasantly surprised by what I heard coming through my speakers. The bonus track was received with open ears too. A fantastic exclamation point to a great piece of music !
This is a good CD. Nice to hear something new from an artist that normaly plays rock music. But if your not a fan of hip hop DO NOT BUY THIS CD!!!
Once in a while an idea comes along that is so patently absurd, so unbelievably ridiculous, that it just may work. The pairing of Timbaland and Chris Cornell is not that idea. This album fails on so many levels it's embarassing to all parties involved. The songs are garbage, the beats are tired and lame, and Cornell sounds as lost as any formerly descent artist has ever sounded. Somewhere in my heart I'd like to believe the whole thing is just a big goof. Like in two weeks you can bring this CD back in and trade it out for the real album. I doubt this is the case. So if there is truly a joke here, it's on those of us who bought this, the stupidest idea pop music has had in years.
