Audioslave - what do you reckon ?

I was a fan of RATM and Soundgarden but just can't get into Audioslave, they don't hit the spot for me. What do you all make of them ?

I watched MTV over the weekend and saw them play Cuba... (first ever American Rock band to play there). They seem quite cool guys... I also own 2 of their albums. I like about 50% of their material, but those tracks which I like... I really like!

I've got both the Audioslaves albums and I don't mind them, but I'd rather have RATM and Soundgarden instead. It's a bit like Jerry Cantrell, it's fine, but I miss AIC.

The band IMO are a good band and do have some very decent material, I think the problem (for me anyway) is that where I was into Soundgarden and R.A.T.M. they just aren't as consistent as either.

I do like what they do but......... I don't seem to play the albums much. :rolleyes:

How to ruin a perfectly good album? Get Tom Morello to do the "guitar solos" on it. Rolf Harris could do a better job with his stylophone. Give Tom a copy of The Alter Bridge album to show him how to do it properly I say.

I wasn't that much of a Soundgarden fan but Audioslave are average at best for me - there's no depth or meaning to the songs IMO. At least they're better than Velvet Revolver who are the absolute pits. :)
:eek: ill cover my eyes and hears, VR are awesome!

First Audioslave album was awesome, out of exhile takes a few listens to get into but is still a great album. I liked Soundgarden and loved RATM so naturally i knew id like AS.

Audioslave are ok. The first album is good in places, but like many CD's has that one or three tracks too many. The 2nd? Well.............

VR's album is a bit 'samey' as well. Grows on you though.

Didn't rate Soundgarden or RATM that much either tbh.

I STILL can't get into Out Of Exile no matter how many times I've tried. I really did, and still, like Audioslaves debut, but really have given up on OOE.


I think they're OK, they have some really good songs but the rest are just a bit boring. Loved RATM and Soundgarden, though I find RATM a bit tame nowadays :)

Saw AS live at the first Download festival, at that time they didn't sit well on a festival stage.

Was a big fan of Soundgarden and RATM but Audioslave don't quite do it for me. Saw them in Brixton a month or so back and they were great - played a few Soundgarden tunes (including Spoonman) and finished off with Killing in the name which was blinding :thumbsup:
