My below comment still stands. How is this record rated a 77 but the song score average is at 84? Listen again and get back to me.

RIP Chris and Andrew.

Can't help but feel this is slightly underrated on this site. Cornell's best album vocally.

Still one of the best alt rock, grunge and 90s albums. Severely underrated. RIP Andy and RIP Chris, so many legends have left us

Great tribute album, but only the first four tracks impressed me.

Temple of the Dog is one of the best albums since 1990. By far. I love essentially every moment of this album. Unreal how a simple project made by friends from different bands had SO much chemistry. This album captures the spirit of grunge, all the while giving it a slightly more musical sensibility.

Also, this might be Chris Cornell's vocal peak album-wise. And that is saying a lot.

Have to concur with all of the positive comments about this album. Vocals are amazing. It had been a long time goal of mine to see Soundgarden live and finally got to see them this year supporting Black Sabbath. CC's vocals were incredible. A truely great rock voice.

A great tribute album to the deceased Mother Love Bone front man Andrew Wood and one of the most passionate albums to come out of the 90's. Vedder & Cornell make a great duo.

Just relistened to this and was really impressed by the vocals. Chris's voice never sounded this great on any Soundgarden album, and it really fits the less-heavy nature of the songs. Also a lot of experimentation, like the piano and harmonica on Times of Trouble.

From gtroda
The fact this album exists is amazing. Chris Cornell was a close friend of the recently deceased Andy Wood of Mother Love Bone. Chris got together with the rest of the band to play some material that was written out of grief and grew into something cathartic. We even get to hear some background vocals by an unknown guy named Eddie Vedder and a local guitarist named Mike McCready that the Mother Love Bone guys were working with before Pearl Jam existed. With a little bit of irony, after Pearl Jam hit the big time this album became popular which then paved the way for Soundgarden to become more popular.

All of that would just be a nifty little story in the history of rock except for the fact that these are some great songs. Hunger Strike is a grunge classic. Say Hello 2 Heaven is an emotional tribute to a lost friend. And many of the other songs on here are great too. The fact that this was just a one off with no expectations made for some loose jams and some of my favorite recorded vocals from Chris Cornell.
