Meh. Didn't even watch the video.

I wanna like the song but... somethings off. It may just be that this is a single and other album cuts could be better but Soundgarden have had some strong fuc#in' singles back in the day. I'll give the album a listen if it gets streamed.

General sentiment out there takes this as the weakest song on the album. Ironic for a first single. Most people seem to dig "Bones of Birds" by far. The album seems to be a mix of general classic Soundgarden and Cornell solo tunes.


I think the best on King Animal is Black Saturday or to a lesser extent Blood On the Valley Floor.

I love some Soundgarden, but this sounds too contrived. Here's to hoping your right Travis.
