Author Notes

There's a slow grind among the sludgy sounds of "Mailman," which features music by Matt Cameron. But Cornell sings as if the lyrics are an incantation, oscillating between a breathy tenor and measured high notes; "All your kisses / turned to spit in my face." Cameron mans a mellotron that bends the space-time continuum of the song, and Cornell reaches up so high on the chorus ("I know I'm headed for the bottom / but I'm riding you all the way!") the sound distorts around him. "When Chris sings high, he tends to sing harder and louder than just about anything on this earth," producer Michael Beinhorn told Billboard in 1994. "He literally blew through a bunch of condenser mikes. I've never seen anyone do that."

Yes! Thank you for all of the Soundgarden and Chris Cornell tunes!

If I'm not mistaken, it seems that only 'Half' is missing to complete the 'Superunknown' album B)

Believe me, it is worth the wait. I feel so lucky some of the authors share my taste in music!  Very much appreciated.

It shouldn't take a man's death for me to fully appreciate his legacy but sadly that's what happened and I feel this month is making up for the gaping hole in his representation in custom form.

Again, thank you for all the work (and heart & soul) you put into these customs.

One helluva tribute though, sir.
