Former Soundgarden/Audioslave singer Chris Cornell's third solo album, "Scream", sold around 26,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 10 on The Billboard 200 chart. Cornell performed his new song "Long Gone" on the March 10 edition of ABC-TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Watch footage of the appearance here. Released on March 10 via Interscope/Mosley Music, "Scream" "showcases a new, seductive sound dark, multi-layered and full of puzzles and surprises," according to a press release. "The songs bring a new cinematic scope to Cornell's performances, with potent visual imagery echoing the non-stop musical assault from his internationally acclaimed live band." "Musically, this is the most ambitious thing I've been a part of. It's almost like a movie soundtrack," says Cornell. Critical and fan response to the disc has been less than enthusiastic, with Rolling Stone magazine calling it "a strange mutation." "Scream" track listing: 01. Part Of Me 02. Time 03. Sweet Revenge 04. Get Up 05. Ground Zero 06. Never Far Away 07. Take Me Alive 08. Long Gone 09. Scream 10. Enemy 11. Other Side Of Town 12. Climbing Up The Walls 13. Watch Out Chris will kick off his multi-city U.S. tour on March 28 in Dallas, Texas. Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.

    Lol irony. No the album if you actually listen to it is quite an enjoyable album. Just because it's a different genre doesn't mean you should instantly hate it. So what it's not your cup of tea. Get over it. Lots of people will like it. Personally I love the album. So why don't you get down off your high horse and stop slamming everything because it's different, and you don't like it. Thatcostsmoney made a perfectly valid point. It is a good album from both perspectives just because you disagree doesn't mean he's on a high horse.

    I did listen, it sucks, just like everything Timbaland touches. It won't be long until Chris teams up with the backstreet boys at this point.

    Who else thinks he should've teamed up with Trent Reznor instead of Timbaland?

    God that W/D/W setup of Pete's sounds ****ing epic! I love that Suhr Tele as well...sweet stuff...gotta love the Port City 4x12 as well.

    he needs to call up kim, ben, and matt (or timmy, tom, and brad) and start actually screaming again (not just saying it in the album title)

    I did listen and it sucks, period. If you weren't brainwashed by crap that radio force feeds you, you would see it. I'm all for an artist trying new things, but this isn't artistic, it's a sellout, period(hence the reason he went with hitmaker Timbaland).

    this album blows. period. great singer, however his change in genre was just a bad bad idea.

    Yeah, this album is a shocker and a disappointment. I don't know what's up with him. If this is really what he wants to do, then I respect him for that, but I highly dobut it. I mean, come on, Timbaland? Anyone who says this album is good, probably only listens to pop radio and nothing more. This is utter garbage and I don't what Cornell sees in it, let alone what he expects others to see. Bust out the acoustic guitar and give us some real music! That is where he truly shines...

    Musically this album sucks, just like anything Timbaland touches. What a sad footnote in Cornell's catalog of music.
