Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
In case you didn't catch the symbolism, Chris Cornell is smashing a guitar on the cover of Scream because he's done with those six-strings -- he's leaving it all behind for Timbaland, who has long wanted to leave hip-hop and R&B behind to make a rock album. As an idea, this rock-dance fusion has some merit; clearly, Cornell needs to do something to shake himself out of his solo stupor and Timbaland is an imaginative, daring producer whose gifts are not limited by genre, although as much as they want to stretch, neither Cornell nor Timbaland is willing to leave his comfort zone here. To be fair, Timbaland's tracks are often augmented by additional production ...

To be fair, Timbaland's tracks are often augmented by additional production by anyone from Justin Timberlake to OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder. Whoever was directly responsible, the result sounds like skittering dance-pop, graced by Cornell's sometimes looped, sometimes manipulated caterwaul.

    surprising

    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!

    Early contender for Worst Album of the Year, possibly ever...

    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.
