Sound — 8
Just like Audioslave's first self-titled CD, Out Of Exile does not give a good first impression. But the more you listen to it, the better it gets. The band has a great sound, and the music itself is phenominal in the creation of this CD. You can really tell it's the style of Tom Morello. His style is an unheard of type of crunch guitar, soft, yet hard. I reccomend this CD as a "must have."
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics were pretty cool. Deep lyrics, yet one can still relate to them. The lyrics and the music matched perfectly, it was great team work. And the singer, Chris Cornell, well hes one of my favorite singers. His voice, the lyrics, the music, they all go together liek a puzzle. They are all unique and different, yet they all fit together to make a beautiful piece of art.
Overall Impression — 10
I think that you cant compare the 2 albums because they are both great. The song "Be Yourself" ia a master piece. I love the whole CD and I hate nothing about it, exept that I wanted more.
