“Room A Thousand Years Wide”, a heavy, sludgy riff wedded to a lumbering rhythm that somehow feels slow and fast at the same time. Vocally, it’s relatively sparse—only a couple of minimal verses that segue into a refrain comprised of only three words: “Tomorrow begets tomorrow.” It traffics in the lyrical ambiguity that characterizes so much of the band’s music, with oblique references to “one who loved what love denied.” “Room A Thousand Years Wide” is what Soundgarden does best: Ambitious hard rock with the head of a music geek and the heart of a headbanger.
