With this set's first single—the immediate anthem "Been Away Too Long"—Soundgarden announces its return after a 16-year hiatus that saw the rock world lose serious ground to prefab pop stars. Here, Soundgarden comes band in unaltered form. Everything that made the albums Badmotorfinger, Superunknown, and Down on the Upside such riveting '90s hard rock is present in full force. Where most current arena-rock bands nod toward the pop market, Soundgarden steeps itself in the tough riffs that built its reputation. "By Crooked Steps" features a mammoth riff that stutters and jams like Led Zeppelin at its epic best. "A Thousand Days Before" centers on a circuitous riff that winds and snakes through complex terrain. "Bones of Birds" captures the beauty of the group's minor-key dirges where it evokes the very best of the early '70s and mixes it to Soundgarden strength. While singer Chris Cornell is the band's obvious focal point, guitarist Kim Thayil brings the firepower that takes standard-issue hard rock and turns it into something far more sustainable and unique in the long run.
