    I downloaded my copy right after the Letterman performance! What a night! What a day!

  2. TC says:

    My least favorite song on the album, Halfway There, is actually a cool demo. They should have left it acoustic.

    Black Saturday demo is also very cool.

    Can’t wait to hear the other Best Buy demos – Thousand Days Before and Bones of Birds

  3. Shayla says:

    If you’re looking to download the album, go to Amazon. It appears the band has pulled a Lady Gaga and are selling super cheap ($3.99) to increase first week album sales.

  4. cosmicatomic says:

    The fact that it’s #9 makes me realize what a sad state the music industry is in.

  5. With Negativity says:

    UPS hasn’t tracked my order from Best Buy since Friday. I’m hating this.

  6. Shayla says:

    As I always say, you’re a fool if you think record sales has anything to do with the quality of music. Yeah, it’s sad it’s only #9 so far, but what’s the difference? Would it be a better album if it was in the top 3? Very few people even buy albums anymore, so I don’t blame them for selling it for under $4 to try to get more people to hear it.

    Too bad its not a good record.

  8. Sticky says:

    Fred,

    You are right, it’s not a good record … it’s great. I got two copies already.

  9. Mia says:

    Amazon says I won’t get my cd until Monday :P

    FRED FLINSTONE
    you dont know anything about music
    excellent album
    top 6 songs are among soundgardens best
    overall 8/10

  11. Toby says:

    This is the catchiest Soundgarden album! I love it. In my opinion, their best album right behind Superunknown.
    Too bad for Soundgarden but King Animal would’ve sold millions in the 90′s.

  12. bradley says:

    i’m afraid Fred is right. Alice in Chains return was better.

  13. BlownUpWorld says:

    I intentionally avoided listening to the teasers (after the first one) so I could sit back & soak up the whole album on release day. Totally fucking impressed! It just keeps getting better with every listen, too.

  14. Pete says:

    #7 right now, I’m in Canada.
