The American singer, songwriter, and musician Chris Cornell tragically ended his life three years ago. This article is about the artist’s last album titled Higher Truth.
Higher Truth is the Soundgarden singer’s 5th solo album . He was also a member of Audioslave; American rock super-group formed in Glendale, California in 2001 (made up of musicians from Rage Against The Machine and himself).
From the first song, we recognize his voice and his touch through the song. Power up by adding more instruments as the song progresses, his voice also taking on confidence and power.
However, we are more on a folk album, Chris likes to touch a bit of everything. Not a single one of these solo albums is alike, and at the same time his very particular voice gives coherence through these albums.
Worried Moon is a good example, very folk, acoustic guitar / drums predominant throughout the song.
This album is almost unplugged, a few synths and electric guitars contradicting us during the tracks, but not predominant.
Evidenced by Murderer Of Blue Skies , our favorite track. Folk guitar, drums and vocals in introduction, soaring song. Then comes the piano and bass, transforming this piece from beautiful to magnificent; Just perfect. Before finishing the song, the electric guitar arrives and later Chris Cornell’s impressive vocal power…
Our Time In The Universe is a bit of the extra-terrestrial track on the album, starting in World Music and quickly taking up the very folk / rock style of the album. In addition, he gives us this song as a remix at the end of the album.
In this folk album, we recognize the touch of Chris Cornell from the beginning to the almost end. His character and creativity are impressive and we can only love this album.
