About this album

After reuniting with Soundgarden in 2010, their successful tour led to a studio collaboration which produced King Animal. During it’s production, Cornell launched an acoustic tour revisiting his entire catalog. ‘Songbook’ is the live album culled from that tour, sampling all phases of his career - with Soundgarden, Audioslave and his solo recordings. Allmusic finds it a strong album, with Cornell “engaged, looking outward to the audience, giving subtly forceful performances that often rescue overlooked tunes … at peace with his past and comfortable with his present” and praising a “casual assurance makes ‘Songbook’ his best solo offering to date.”

    Is there any difference with the normal version of Songbook and the "Parental Advisory" version ?

    Been waiting so long for him to release such an album. Cornell in his purest form. Given the man's repertoire it's pretty normal he omitted some of his great songs (I would have personally liked to hear Say Hello 2 Heaven). But whatever he sings, it's still Chris and a guitar. And that of course is incredible.

    I would've bought this if it included Burden In My Hand.

    Euphoria Morning is one of my favourite albums. I can't imagine being less interested in this.
