Sound — 6
Tom Morello's guitars are not up to his part...IMO his sound was better in Rage against the machine...the overall mixing on this cd sucks...you can barely hear the bass guitar in pretty much all the songs..Battle of Los Angeles had so much better mixing.

Chris Cornell is definitely the right singer for the job. His lyrics are realy deep and very well thought out/written...
Overall Impression — 8
Though Chris Cornell's vocals sure do bring out the best in this band, RATM had better mixing on there albums, and Morello went crazier...Audioslave sort of limits the range on all the members, but together they make a good blend of music, that I enjoy listening to.
