“No one knows where intelligent life is”
Yes Soundgarden have Been Away Too Long. Fifteen long years to come close to the mark. Making live returns to the show circuit in 2010 and with an anticipated release date of November 13 2012, for the new cd King Animal all is now right and good in the world of Seattle Rock.
New single Been Away Too Long is more than you would expect. Matt Cameron is drumming up a complicated yet just right beat for this song. This is fast yet not too furious, it is banging, yet not booming and it is smooth yet not too simple.
Chris Cornells vocal is, well Chris Cornells vocal, however, it appears to have become a mellower, milder mix of screech than perhaps it once once. There is a soothing tone somewhere in the Soundgarden songbird.
If this is a sign of things to come then it will be more than worth your hard earned $15.
