Soundgarden's breakthrough. Some brilliant songwriting on here and its heavy as shit! Far more than anything their peers were doing.
Soundgarden's breakthrough album and it is an improvement from their previous albums but soundgarden in general just doesn't stick with as much as Nirvana or Pearl Jam but this is still a very good record

Yeahhh dude, grungeeee...
I adore this album. It’s fantastic. “Outshined” and “Jesus Christ Pose” are fucking perfect songs
Really great album. Consistent in quality up until about the 9th track. I feel as though from there the sounds starts to become stale and repetitive, though none of the tracks are bad.
