Review:

Right after the death of Mother Love Bone’s Andrew Wood, two of the remaining members of the band, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament needed an outlet to make music again. Right at the same time, Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell had penned a couple of songs (Reach Down and Say Hello 2 Heaven), and as opposed to doing them solo brought them to Stone and Jeff for consideration. After adding a newcomer, Mike McCready, and grabbing SG’s drummer Matt Cameron a project was formed, music was made, and an album released. Not much was made of it until a certain guest on this album, Eddie Vedder, got famous with his new band and the Seattle scene blew up. Having said all that, this album is spectacular
and untouched by any of the hype since it was released prior to the scene becoming the scene. Obviously, it has a PJ-esque sound to it, and Chris Cornell’s signature vocals, but certainly stands on its own.
