Chris Cornell is a prominent figure in the Rock genre.
Timbaland is a pioneer in the Hip-hop industry.
Put them in a studio together and you get the Sound of Music. ( No relation whatsoever to the Julie Andrews or the killing of Jews. I'm just saying. )
For those of you living in a cave, under a rock, hiding from the 5-0, living underground or associates yourselves with the Ku Klux Klan, Timbaland is an extremely wealthy and respected Rapper-turned-Hip-hop producer. While, Chris Cornell was the lead singer of Audioslave and an integral part of Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog. He also has three solo albums to his name, this being the third one. In terms of his solo career, he is best known for "Can't Change Me" and "You Know My Name", which is the theme song for the James Bond movie titled, " Casino Royale " .
Listened to it today while playing Fallout 3 ( PC Game of the Year 2008, bound to do a review on that in the near post-apocalyptic future. ) and it is actually good ( Both the game and the album ). I say actually because this album has been receiving a mixed reception from listeners for quite awhile. Chris Cornell's faithful are disappointed due the the synthesized beats ( No, not the T-Pain ones. ) instead of traditional beats ( Nothing to do with flutes or a bongo. ), which are used in the Rock genre. On the other hand, Timbaland's faithful are a much more easier crowd to please.
|How the average Chris Cornell fan felt.|
|Pretty much how most Timbaland fans that loved this album looked like.|
The tracks that stands out for me ( Honestly, I could pretty much list it all. I'm a fan, what can I say ) :
Long Gone .
Ground Zero .
Never Far Away .
Climbing up the Walls .
The Album is mainly a mix of Rock Vocals and Beats(synthesized). However, in the last track, " Two Drink Minimum " , Chris shows a more Bluesy side to the album with mainly an acoustic guitar, harmonica and the works. Considering it to be the last track of the album and no synthesized beats, I would just like to clarify that Chris was not on a leash. I'm just saying.
|Timbaland and Chris Cornell. That's all. What? You expected something funny didn't you.|
