Sound — 10
This is one of the most well rounded albums iv ever listened to, it's got a song for every occasion. Morello's guitar effects just keep coming, the solo in yesterday comes tomorrow should is my favorite.
Lyrics — 10
I haven't really gone through all the lyrics but from what I've heard from listening to the songs they're good, atleast it seems that cornell's voice compliments them nicely. Oh and I particularly like Doesnt Remind Me's lyrics, for their originality and just strangeness, "I like colerful clothing in the sun, becuase it doesn't remind me of anything." I dont know what it means, but it doesn't remind me of anything either.
Overall Impression — 10
The most impressive songs on the album in my opinion are Be Yourself, Yesterday Comes Tomorrow, and #1 Zero, with an honorable mention to Doesn't Remind Me. If this CD were stolen or lost I wouldn't go out and get another because after I purchased the CD I ripped all the songs to my computer, so I'd just burn me out another. Otherwise I would def repurchase, good CD.
