7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 30th October 2014
Back in the day I loved “Screaming Life/Fopp”, “Louder Than Love” and especially “Badmotorfinger”. Then, half way through “Superunknown” Soundgarden’s music started to leave me a bit cold. So as much as I’m not sure why that happened, I’m not sure what reignited my interest enough to buy “King Animal”. I guess, like Soundgarden, I was reliving my youth.
I was pretty pleased with the opening track “Been Away Too Long”, probably what I was hoping for. “By Crooked Steps” was also good. “Blood on the Valley Floor” is very much the Soundgarden of old, which pleased me. “Black Saturday” sounds like their “Superunkown” era. “Worse Dreams” is a decent catchy rock song.
I think my first impressions were that it was brilliant, for some reason I was quite excited. I think further listens have made me realise that it’s okay. 6.5-7, maybe?
