    It cannot be outstated what a loss the world has suffered with the death of Chris Cornell. This album is a wonderful mesh of pop, rock, world, electronic and folk. Most albums that I listen to, it takes me 2-3 listens before I start to understand the mindset and it starts to gel, but I got this one right out of the gates and was hooked before my first listen was even over. I love it, and wish his family the best.

    Chris's music always has, ever since I can remember. This album is a mature Chris Cornell and it's his most touching and incredible masterpiece. I've had it since the release and still listen to it almost every day! I am saddened that he is gone, but we can immortalize him forever in his song! He is the highway! This is a must buy!

    I've listened to this album consistently since launch, over the last 18 or so months. The fact that just a few days ago Chris killed himself brings new meaning to a lot of these songs. Tunes like Bend in the Road, Through the Window and Dead Wishes all take on new meaning and a new perspective for me. I've been a huge fan since '94 when, at 13 yrs old I discovered Superunknown, probably one of my top 5 albums of all-time. I was an avid listener as I grew up and Chris' songs formed an undeniably important part of my life. I felt an outlet for my teenage rebellion as I took in Superunknown from 1994, mourned the loss of a relationship in '99 listening to Euphoria Morning while attending Art College. His songs spoke to a deeper part of me than almost any other artist, possible exception being Pearl Jam, my favorite band of all time. His voice is and was unparalleled, but I genuinely feel that on Higher Truth it had aged to perfection. Listening to his effortless mastery on Through The Window, Dead Wishes or Worried Moon and I was blown away by his reinvigorated creativity. No-one, ever, has sung like this guy and it was all on full show across the breadth of Higher Truth. I was a huge fan of Euphoria Morning when released back in '99 and had been wishing for a similar album across all of Chris' subsequent releases... Scream and Carry On did nothing for me, even though the latter was somewhat similar to Euphoria Morning as it was more acoustic. For a while I felt maybe he'd lost that 'spark' that was evident across all his work in the '90's. However, this album, to me, serves as the perfect follow up to Euphoria Morning and I felt Chris had rediscovered his creative genius across this sprawling, epic work - in fact, "Through the Window" is possibly my favorite song of his. I'm so sad that this was the last album he released, but I feel it was genuinely his best solo work and as such, a wonderful send-off. I can't believe I'm writing that, he always seemed to me to be the most balanced, mature and comfortable artist of the "Grunge" era. At 52 to feel he had no way out is so sad, tragic and shocking it really has hit me hard. I will miss his presence in the music scene, but this album, and his catalog of work, is testament to his pure, raw talent for his craft. Nobody did it like him, and nobody ever will again. A unique talent, gone too soon. But that's not the reason I'm rating this album 5-stars. It's a stunning collection full of inspired lyrics, musicianship and, of course, THAT voice in the best shape it was ever in.

    Chris Cornell was an amazing artist. I've had this album since it came out but seeing as this incredible man passed on today (May 18, 2017) I found it necessary to share that this album was truly wonderful and feels like coming home to a wonderful family after a long day at work. My go to album to listen to relax and remember the good times.

    Amazing album and amazing soulful. Nearly Forgot.....Murder in Blue Skies.....Josephine are my favorites. They all soon will be. Every time you listen the lyrics will draw you in deeper and resistance will be futile.

    How often can you say an artist who has been around 25+ years is currently still raising the bar? Little to no hype, no pretentious leanings on sentimentality for your dollar. Chris is the real deal because he continues to search for the real deal within his personal experience. Don't hesitate to see him live is you have the opportunity. Listen and you then may understand what words can not express.
