Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The defining moment from an unclassifiable band remains brilliantly off-kilter as metal, crushingly moody as alternative and strangely reassuring as classic rock."

Rolling Stone (5/13/99, p.54) - Included in Rolling Stone's "Essential Recordings of the 90's."

Rolling Stone (3/10/94, p.63) - 4 Stars - Very Good - "...At its best, SUPERUNKNOWN offers a more harrowing depiction of alienation and despair than anything on IN UTERO....Although the band serves up a healthy amount of metallic bluster, Soundgarden refuse to define themselves in strict headbanger terms...."

Spin (9/99, p.154) - Ranked #70 in Spin Magazine's "90 Greatest Albums of the '90s."

Spin (12/94, p.78) - Ranked #17 in Spin's list of the `20 Best Albums Of '94' - "...turn[s] everyday teenage gloom into a prayer for divine wrath to wash the world away....When Kim Thayil locks into...visceral riffs...pure hormonal energy thunders to the rescue..."

Entertainment Weekly (Spring 2000, p.166) - Ranked #6 in EW's "Top 10 albums of the '90s"

Q (12/99, p.82) - Included in Q Magazine's "90 Best Albums Of The 1990s."

Melody Maker (3/5/94, p.40) - "...Like IN UTERO, SUPEREUNKNOWN has a depth and maturity which isn't easily assimilated on the first few listenings ....a brilliant, brilliant album...."

Village Voice (3/94, p.5) - Ranked #2 in the Village Voice's 1993 Pazz & Jop Critics Poll.

Village Voice (2/28/95) - Ranked #11 in the Village Voice's 1994 Pazz & Jop Critics Poll.

Q (Magazine) (p.122) - "Soundgarden dealt in unreconstructed heavy rock: a heavy guitar sound, depth-charge drumming....Yet SUPERUNKNOWN also includes more measured moments, such as the shimmering hit single 'Black Hole Sun.'"

New York Times (Publisher) (1/5/95, p.C15) - Included on Jon Pareles' list of the Top 10 Albums Of '94 - "Hard rock, all muscle and sinew, that churns and howls..."
